Got it last night from the UK launch on Oxford Street, London. Even got it signed by the guy who does Mario's voice (wasn't a queue by the time I got there, so figured I may as well!).

So far (from a few hours last night) it's fuckin amazing. the controls are perfect and it looks like being one of the best games ever. Gonna give it a real go tonight.

Anyone with a Wii should own this. Obviously.

I copped a Wii for this game. Got it on thursday, and I donīt regret it. This game is classic material, game of the year for me. I love how some of the tunes from Super Mario Bros. 3 is used in some levels, it's brilliant. The music overall is great. Tight controls and gameplay, and cool levels overall.

Levels are way to short, and repetative and aren't very fun after awile, I love the graphics though. But it's like not much of a story line at all, all you do is complete levels, nothing really happens, maybe everyonce inna while, but yeah.

Damn! Couldn't agree less with the above. Yeah some levels are pretty short, but then you're straight into another one with brilliant variety. Could be more story, but that's rarely been particularly important in Mario games.

I'd personaly describe it as magical and reckon it's probably the best platform game I've ever played.

I've not really got into a game in years, but played this non-stop for over 9 hours yesterday!

Looks like a good game. The only game that would make me go out and buy a wii would be Super Smash Brothers Brawl. That game looks kickass.

If I only ever played Super Mario Galaxy & Zelda it would have been worth buying the Wii.

All the talk/pictures/videos of Mario couldn't prepare me for how breathtaking it is.

Haha yeah they're in really short supply. I got mine a year ago thankfully.

I got mine during the shortage last year by having a real time stock site open all the time while working. they updated all the time and tell you if anyone on the net has any. I saw Amazon had stock and got one even though they sold out in 5 mins!!!

There is now a whole stack of great games out and coming out. It has been like the old bus saying "Wait ages for one to come along...".

^^ It's worth every penny. Trust me.

I've put in at least 20 hours of gameplay so far and although I can now head off to visit Bowser if I wish, there is still loads of stuff left to do. I only have 64 of the 120 stars.

I say rent this game at Block Buster with the extra week added, saves alot of money... The game is great, but I won't be coming back to it after it has been beaten.

I'll be back to this one again and again. The great thing about it for me is that it is like an old school platform game, but in 3D (feels like 4D with the gravity thing!), more than any other 3D platformer. Mario 64 had elements that made it like an adventure game rather than a true 3D update of the platform genre. This means rather than just being about finding what you have to do and doing it (making it less fun second time around), it, for me, has the sort of replayability that an old school platformer like Super Mario Brothers 3 had. The levels are fun to get through whether you've done them before or not.

No doubt about it. Mario is gangsta, nigga! This disc hasn't left my Wii since I got it. Haven't played it much in the last week though, been focusing most of my time on Crysis, but still very very dope.

Seriously, this is one of the best games Iīve ever played, if not the best. Itīs just excellent from start to finish, some of the most inventive and imaginative level designs Iīve ever seen, and the music is great.
