Super Mario Galaxy is the newest Mario game, and is quite possibly the best yet. It was released in November, 2007 on Nintendo‚Äôs Wii system. It has met immense critical reception, with an average rating placing it in the top 2 on game review aggregation sites. The plot is predictable, but nobody plays Mario games for the plot. The real fun starts when you get into the gameplay. Mario visits various galaxies, each with their own themes, monsters, puzzles, and laws of physics.
