Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii, 2010)
guessed by mZuzek
Before I played Super Mario Galaxy 2, I was skeptical that it could match the original Super Mario Galaxy, one of the best games of the seventh generation. Several weeks and 242 stars later, I was happy to be proven wrong. Galaxy 2 is nothing short of a masterpiece, a game that, in the words of Edge Magazine "rolls [the genre] up and locks it away." The sheer imagination on display in the game is mind-boggling. It packs more ideas and mechanics into individual levels than some games do in their entirety. Super Mario Galaxy 2 might not be as revolutionary is its predecessor, but it's every bit as beautiful, creative, and fun.
