Super Mario Sunshine. Underrated or Crap?

5 posts in this topic

Any time I talk Mario games with my friends, Super Mario Sunshine becomes a game of contention for us. About 50% of us love it and think it is probably the most underrated Mario game. The other 50% think the game is crap. I often wonder why there is such a division of this particular title. I will admit that it is not the best Mario game (Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Bros. 3 are tied for my first place spot), but personally I put it higher than Super Mario Galaxy. What are your opinions?

Everyone knows Super Mario World is the best Mario. :)

Sunshine is really good honestly though. It's a lot like Beyond Good and Evil in the sense they didn't try to be another generic platformer. They tried to innovate and put in more ideas and even puzzles.

I don't know why people hate it. The game plays really good, has a waaayy better camera than Mario 64. Looks amazing even today.

Chances are though most were people just disappointed than thinking it sucked. M64 was huge jump at the time and Sunshine is just an improved version of that honestly.

The main point of contention is, of course, Fluud. Some people think having a jetpack took away a lot for the difficulty from platforming, others just cant accept change.

That is a very good point. Fluud does alter the standard platforming "flow". I feel that Fluud was a very balanced tool in the game, but I can see how others might feel it makes platforming too easy. The Mario franchise is known for difficulty.
