loved the game, new mechanics and gameplay was a breath of fresh air from 64. Not as good overall though. But I hope it will eventually come to Wii U VC so that I can play off-screen :)

For me, it's overrated. Really sloppy compared to 64 and galaxy 1 & 2.

I was actually surprised by all of the critical backlash the sunshine got back in the day. Despite everything, this is a Mario game, and an awesome one at that

This is my fave Super Mario game EVER! i liked it more then 64 and Galaxy.

Even though 64 is the classics, Sunshine has the tropical feel to it like da islands brah!

While SM64 and its sequel (SMG) are my favourites, I still have some love for this. I'm going back and playing through it more now that I have beat Galaxy. Not as much nostalgia, but still fun!

People don't know how to apreciate this game.

Is the second BEST MARIO, for me obviously, Galaxy is GREAT, but sunshine is very very SPECIAL.

I was one of the anti-sunshine people. But I gave it a second chance. Once I got to 10 shines i really saw it's brilliance (I don't think it even took that long actually).

I haven't finished it yet, but I can already say it's at least a 8.5/10 (28 shines so far).

I don't think i can say it is better or worse than 64 or galaxy. But of the same calibre for sure.

The game is a lot better than people give it credit for. FLUDD wasn't THAT bad, though it was a bit annoying at times. I think a few people prefer this game to Galaxy because they're in the Mushroom Kingdom and feel more at home, whereas in Galaxy they're in space and feel a little... alone. But those of you who feel cold playing Galaxy, give it a chance, soon you shall realize its greatness.

The best parts of Sunshine were those "Secret of..." Shines where you went through some ridiculous mini stage without FLUDD

And Shizzlee... when i catch you, there will be hell to pay XD

Those who say this was a bad game are fooling themselves. It might not have been as revolutionary as SMB & SM64 but it was an excellent title. Nintendo simply doesn't know how to make a bad game.

Sucks compared to Galaxy... still a great game, I would not go as far to call it a classic and put it in the same group with-

Mario 1, 3, World, 64, and Galaxy(will be in time)

I put it with 2(jp), 2(na), Yoshi's Is., in the second tere of mario games, still great games though.

How can you be a Sega fanboy? :S

This game is great, but sometimes I felt more... you know, claustrophobic than than in 64. And the camera failed big time.

But still great game. 9/10

Fantastic controls, and the Old School Jump'n'Run levels rank among the best things I've ever played. Minor shortcomings: The "holiday island" theme became a little too uniform, and the weak story made the start a bit slow. Other than that, it's just as good as Mario 64, IMO.
