Super Mario Sunshine review

Reviewed August 31, 2002

Jason Venter says: "You'll be wishing you could see more of a stage (each episode has unique challenges and alterations to the geography), but no such luck.

richorosai says: "Are We Disappointed Yet?

A release like that of Super Mario Sunshine brings with it some pretty high expectations. The last time Nintendo gave us a Mario game (and a rushed one at that), it was so spectacular that most would wonder if it could be surpassed. At the same time, even those filled with doubt must also be filled with anticipation and longing for another display of that spectacular genius.
