He's back, again. In space, again. And Bowser's gone and nicked his princess...AGAIN! Yes, the world's most versatile plumber is back to do what he does best and Nintendo have hit the jackpot once more, as if anyone doubted there'd be any other result.
GAME are currently offering Super Mario Galaxy 2 for £29.84 at the moment, along with 1000 GAME points, saving you around £2 on the nearest in stock competitor as ShopTo is currently out of this particular title.
You know the routine by now. It's colourful, well made and hugely enjoyable. The hub world has gone, you now hop around in Mario's spaceship between worlds on a map much like the Super Mario World games of old, there's two player co-op (of sorts) and Yoshie gets involved too. By and large, though, it plays identically to its predecessor so don't expect to be surprised. This isn't really an innovative step forward but rather fan service if anything, with Nintendo once again proving that if it ain't broke, why bother trying to mix things up too much.
You can't praise them on this one for imagination really, but by god it's fun!
