To me it doesn't deserve it. The game recycled to much from the first game.
From the mobs, to the sounds, to the bosses, and even animations. It really feels like SMG1.5 with updated graphics and new levels. Best way to describe it is a expansion pack.
THIS IS NOT A TROLL. That is just how I feel. It doesn't make the game bad. But it doesn't deserve a 10. A 9/10 is more like it.
Fair enough, but then shouldn't most every FPS release nowadays also be critiqued on the basis that they are just recycling old gameplay with updated graphics? For instance, MW2 recieved great reviews (and is a great game don't get me wrong), yet what did it really do different than MW1, or most other recent FPS for that matter? And I bet you anything that Black Ops, which will be similar as well, will ALSO recieve great scores. What did Gears 2 do really different from Gears 1? What about GTA4 from GTA3? Or GoW3 from GoW2? Or Halo ODST from Halo 3 from Halo 2? See the double standard?
Galaxy 2 should be judged by its own merits, not whether or not it's similar to Galaxy 1, which it looks to be a pretty significant improvement from anyway.
I think it's about time the Wii got a 10 rated game. If games like GTA4 and MGS4 can get them, why not Galaxy 2? I personally think NSMB Wii should have been the game to recieve the 10s, but Galalxy 2 certainly seems to be the next on the list of the most worthy.
