    Yeah, I put the game off for a while...I was having a ton of trouble beating the final level (not the boss...I beat Bowser without getting hit), and finally decided to try again since 2 is coming out soon.

    Awesome game.

    Most intricate non-rpg Mario story ever told!

    Sad ending. Poor Luma sacrificed itself.

    These type of Mario games are perfect and enjoyable to play, except that they have little replay value. Let's hope the sequel fixes this.

    I'm still making my way through the game with Luigi. Up to about 100 stars now.

    In 8 days including (possibly all) work, school, family, food, sleep? I don't think so xD! But yeah, the hype got to me too. Retro Galaxy all the way, baby!

    You did play through twice, right? And not just with Mario?

    Was more of a rhetorical joke than anything. One of these days, the internet will also depict the user's tone.

    I think the point Fellow is trying to make is that once you've collected/accomplished everything there's nothing to do that's new so the game gets old fast. That's the same with any platformer I find. Don't get me wrong, I'm 23 and I'll still play Sonic 3 and Knuckles once in a while, but it just doesn't have the same thrill that it did the first few times I played it. It's even the same with recent games. I loved SMG and I got all 242 stars, but even playing through again as Luigi felt tiresome.

    I find that the only games that have great reply value are multiplayer games. My friends and I will still play Smash 64 or Perfect Dark, or Goldeneye from time to time. [​IMG] On the other hand, the only way I can truely enjoy a single player game again, is if I leave it alone for a long time, so I forget small details. The rediscovery is brilliant. I'm doing that with SMG at the moment, I'm letting my partner play as player one (she's getting there bless her lol!) to try an old game from a new perspective.
