One of our regular community members, SWAT, has just beaten Super Mario Galaxy. He’s going to give us his review, as well as some tips for playing the game.

So overall, what is your impression of the game? Overall the graphics are very good, even though the ending could have been more difficult.

What was the hardest part? The realm where you turn Mario into a Spring. It’s really difficult.

How does this one compare to other versions of Mario you’ve played? This one ranks up there as probably the best, overall.

How long did it take you to beat the game? It took me about 2 1/2 weeks, playing an hour or two a day.

Does it make it hard during times when the camera cannot keep up with your movements? It’s not bad most of the time, just when jumping from block to block.

What are some other tips you have for us?

  • Get your timing down right away. It’s critical when jumping.
  • Get the concept of gravity down. You’ll have to walk on walls and ceilings in this one!
  • Get as many star bits as you can. These are what unlock the secret worlds.
  • The ending is much easier than I hoped. I beat Bowser on the first try.
