Mario Kart Wii

I was really surprised when I learned that motor bikes would feature in Mario Kart Wii. Why, I wondered would they take a tried and well tested formula that is so popular with fans and change it. Now that I have played the game I can see why as it does not take anything away from the original Mario Kart experience it only adds to it. Mario Kart Wii is a superb game with lots of new inventive features that fans will simply love.

Here our hero is on holiday! Yes the overworked Mario is actually taking a vacation with Princess Peach on Delfino Island but as you would expect all does not go to plan as a Mario lookalike has rubbished the island, so it’s up to the poor plumber to get his water cannon at the ready to clean up as he is accused of causing the mayhem himself.

Super Paper Mario

Super Paper Mario is a bit of an enigma as it cannot be strictly categorised in terms of what type of game I would describe it as. It’s a little bit of everything rolled into one making it rather unique while the game is a pleasure to discover. With fantastic grab at you graphics it has hours of game play fun for you to explore and enjoy, while for us regular fans it combines all the elements we all know and admire when it comes to Super Mario games. The paper element is superb with the usual case scenario of if your character turns sideways you can no longer see them as would happen with a piece of paper. It’s Wacky but fun.

Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario in space is the setting for this adventure and it is simply superb. Mario floats through the atmosphere passing stars and planets plus a few other locations we have seen before in previous episodes. As a fan, Mario for me is the ultimate video game character, the one I feel I know the best. He has such character and personality while in this episode he really comes to life especially in view of the 3D graphics. Packed with fun and amusement it is a game you will not be able to put down.
