I'm not sure why I mentioned reviewing Mario Galaxy 2. Other than an interesting opener that eases you from 2D to 3D gameplay, it's Mario Galaxy with a couple more abilities and a slightly improved (less wandering) hub-world. The first playthrough is fun, and it has varied and interesting level design that benefits from its kitchen sink approach to theme. And if you have few game options and want something that lasts, this one provides via objects the level designers are hiding from you in a second playthrough of the game; not my thing, but yeah. If you've already played a lot of 3D Mario games, it feels awesome-slash-boring.
