I personally found this game brilliant. Each planet a new and refreshing puzzle or gimmick to it which kept the game moving. Also, the addition of Comet Coins was a great idea in my opinion as gave each level replay value even if most were quite to find. The music obviously played a huge part with great pieces in levels such as the Tall Tree galaxy (kept me sane through the purple coin level). Some of it did like remixes of the first game however - I heard a LOT of remixes of the Gusty Gardens theme from the SMG1 in the screen where you choose what level to go to, the overworld screen and levels such as Cloud Court (think that's what it's called). Though, this isn't necessarily a bad thing since that music was epic.

Prankster Comets make a return, which I guess have to happen, but it doesn't stop me hating Purple Coin Missions! At least the Cosmic races have been replace with the Cosmic Clones; I'm not sure whether that's good or not...

It's great to be able to play as Luigi without having to go through the ENTIRE game again. I prefer to use him over Mario due to his better jumping ability which greatly outweighs lower traction. He appears in a few select levels, then after you beat Bowser you can play with him all the time (which I do).

Speaking of Bowser,
Spoiler:
 

Oh yeah, and Yoshi's loads of fun to play with some inventive powerup fruits and he's in enough levels unlike NSMBW.

EDIT: I forgot to say, I'm at about 90 stars so no spoilers about what happens when you reach 120 stars please

my thoughs are the same as you

none of the planets feel the same all fresh brand new ideas but with a lot of galaxy 1 song remixes though galaxy 2 looks and feels like one dont let that get you down this still a masterpiece game. i still hate purple coins >_> but i can live with them as long as there is no cosmic races 2nd most hated one

glad to see yoshi and im glad to see more crazy suits and power ups too.... now back to getting more stars

Indeed I did, though Luigi's ending wasn't as great as I had expected. Though it was good to see as I only had the game for rent so would not have known otherwise. And that last planet looks really, really tough!

Woah, Jody! No wonder you died so many times! I thought that the #$^#$36$#^$#$#$ trial galaxy with the ball was tough before, but now I know the meaning of the word!

Ditto Fire - I've just gotten to about the same point you were at (92 stars) and I totally agree with your review. I was a little disappointed with the first game because it was too easy overall, but MG2 keeps things reasonably challenging........though Bowser better find a green pipe to hide in somewhere, lol!

I guess the wretched ball stages had to come back, but WHY Fluzzard?!?!?!? Evil or Very Mad Oh well....no game is perfect.

Am I really the only one who likes the comets? I love the cosmic chases and the purple coins!.........Although I am glad that they seem to have gotten rid of the purple coin searches from the first game......

Overall, while Mario World & Mario 3 are safe, this is probably my 3rd. favorite Mario game tying with Sunshine.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I love the Mario World style that several of the levels have (like the first haunted galaxy where you have to get across the walkway as it appears....I loved that level Smile). All the power-ups are fun, although the bee & boo mushrooms are criminally underused. Sad

So far, my favorite areas are the clockwork ruins, the first haunted galaxy, and the chainchomp works comet chase & the Tall Tree galaxy (especially the purple coins Razz), among a ton of others. There are so darn many good ones to choose from drunken

@Jordan - Do you mean from the first game? Or is there a galaxy I've missed?!

Oh that one lol!.....My younger brother got frustrated with that one too. I got it on my 1st try Razz . (Just barely - I got stuck in the swamp at the end but I somehow managed to jump out....and I didn't realize that when I tried to get rid of the green platforms that the star would appear at the beginning! Rolling Eyes ) It was one of the more challenging levels in the game though....which is why I like it.

Actually, I found those both easy. In each game.
