Su­per Mario Galaxy

(Wii, Wii U)

Hyper - - FEATURE -

If you were go­ing to have a con­ver­sa­tion about the best game Nintendo has ever made, both Su­per Mario Galaxy games would make the short­list. Su­per Mario Galaxy took the broad phi­los­o­phy that the Wii had out­lined with Wii Sports – that any­one should be able to play – and at­tached it to their sig­na­ture fran­chise, re­sult­ing in a game that hits a per­fect bal­ance be­tween showi­ness and ac­ces­si­bil­ity. Both Galaxy games are near-per­fect, and the mul­ti­player func­tion­al­ity – which lets an­other player use the Wii re­mote to at­tack en­e­mies with star bits – is per­fect for in­tro­duc­ing non-gamers to Mario. We’re go­ing with the first game over the sec­ond here not nec­es­sar­ily be­cause it’s better – the two games are neckand-neck, re­ally – but be­cause if you play one you’ll even­tu­ally want to play the other, so why not start with the first game? Se­ries best: Su­per Mario Galaxy 1/2
