    There are people who never got into Galaxy who love Galaxy 2. Its one of those games that throws something different at you every now and again and so it never becomes stale.

    Its certainly an instant classic one I don't see diminishing with age but will be some time before we can consider it for best game ever or even best Mario.

    Best game ever? Probably not. Best game yet? Definately. I havent had this much fun with a game in ages. And its actually hard this time around.

    Yeah, it probably won't be the best game ever, and if it will, it won't be for a while. The best game ever is... Ocarina of Time, right? I hated that game.

    SSBB had far too many problems to considered best game ever.

    1. Who though random tripping was a good idea?
    2. Too many of the characters are clones
    3. Too unbalanced unless you only play final destination with no items.
    4. Shitty, laggy online.

    thats just off the top of my head. I'm not saying its a bad game, just not the best game ever.

    Shitty online, bad character balancing. It's by far not considered the best fighting game.

    It's certainly one of the best games ever made, Galaxy 2, but IDK if I'd give it the title of "best". Yet again I don't consider any one game to be "the best game".

    Poorly implemented co-op play, camera not always responsive, some characters are useless to play, friend codes, single player fighting isn't that great.

    While most wont care when playing with friends, the above proves its not a perfect and so can't be best game ever. Preferred Melee anyway.

    Playing that way vastly exacerbates the balance issues, not the other way around.

    Like Hadrian said, some people are getting into this, yet they couldn't get into the first one. I feel that way. I've been loving every minute of this game, and it's great. It's not THE best game out there in my opinion, but it definitely is one of the best to me.

    Not really. I can beat any character using any character on that stage against my brother. Any other stage, or items enabled and we both win about half the time.

    Not this again.
    Had the same newsposts when the first one came out, I hate the title 'best game ever.'
    That title is purely subjective, my best game ever is CoD 2, I know no one on the temp agrees with that, but so what, that's my opinion.

    SMG 1 and 2 are both fantastic games, I usually don't like these kind of games, but even I must agree that when you play either, you can just sense the perfection in those games, everything feels perfect.
    I'm sad I don't like these games so much, I suck at them, else I would learn to appreciate these games more.
    The fact that several websites give them a perfect score just proves that hyping games up still is rampant.
    The game is very good, but I doubt there really aren't weak points and if it doesn't get old soon.

    That doesn't mean anything except that you're good on Final Destination.

    Whichever way around it is then, we can both agree that its unbalanced except in a few special cases?

    i got bored of the 1st smg game, and haven't even touched the 2nd as i am busy with my ps3, i don't personally think this is the best mario game ever, super mario world on the snes has the title of that, but i don't expect you kids to remember that game.

    You're judging it without even having played it? I've played super mario world (along with every single other major mario game) and i still consider this to be the best mario game yet.



    edit: oops, extra word.
