Top Ten Reasons Why Super Mario Galaxy Is Bad


The Top TenXW

1Princess Peach Gets Kidnapped Again

Yeah I know, but come on guys, this is in EVERY Mario GAME guys, it is obviously gonna be the problem in any Mario game. Frankly, because of the cinematics and great game thematics and elements, the kidnapping this game is better than in most games. It is an actually epic display and if it wasn't in every game, it would be interesting and awesome. Stop complaining because this game has a much higher quality than standard Mario games, and those are still good, so this one must be great if it is a step up from good games. If you want creativity, go play the Paper Mario and Mario and Luigi series, as they are AMAZING games with awesome and actually original storylines (and also Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars, just didn't say it before because it is not part of a series). This game has the best GAMEPLAY for a Mario game and that's what really matters. The story isn't even that bad anyway, and even though it isn't original, it has higher quality and cinematics than most Mario ...more

I totally agree. Every Mario plot is the same anyway so I expected it anyway because it no surprise. Princess peach is worst then princess Elise and that is saying a whole lot

There could have been... BETTER IDEAS FOR Mario GALAXY. How about one where Mario and Bowser work together to stop a evil overlord from taking over the galaxy. That would have been fine but no they go with the same plot. Why does every Mario plot is the same? It getting old - Chaotixhero

I wish Princess Daisy were in this game instead of Princess Peach.

2The Gravity Gimmick

This list should be changed to trolling funhouse. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I like the gravity gimmick, its entirley original. Only sonic lost world and angry birds uses similar physics - Harri666

Well why the hell would their be original gravity your in space for crying out loud

Nah, It's Pretty Good - VideoGamefan5

3The Water Levels

Too slow Mario. It too hard to move anyway because he just spaz anywhere he wants kinda feels like Superman 64. - Chaotixhero

Water levels are natural in Mario games. I don't like a majority of them too but that doesn't make the ENTIRE GAME bad - Hakros323

Mario goes too slow underwater, even it is hard to avoid enemies underwater!

Yeah Mario is slow but there's mostly shells around and that makes you move fast enough.

Water Levels Suck But Not In This Game - VideoGamefan5

4The Bosses

I find the bosses very hard and than only to find out they have a simple weakness that I wasted five lives in order to figure that out.

Yeah right. For me, Kingfin is the best underwater boss in gaming. It was an interesting fight and the shell's make the underwater controls better. Why is this on the list? - HeavyDonkeyKong

They are too easy and has no challenge. No not at all. These bosses are a joke and that Is disappointing because Mario always have challenging bosses. laugh out loud no he never does. Even the final boss is... Too easy - Chaotixhero

Mario isn't exactly known to have hard bosses. Even so, I found them enjoyable - Hakros323

The Bosses Are A bit Ugly But I Like Them - VideoGamefan5

5The Voice Acting

Ryan Yao (from Canucks Autism Network) would be a great voice actor for the Penguin Coach from both Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 and his sister Amy Yao could voice the child penguins.

Worster then Shadow the hedgehog and Super Mario sunshine. I agree with you chaotixhero. You're good. I prefer sonic lost world more because at least that game got decent voice acting

I wish the Mario games have extensive voice acting again. Also, here's the worst part of the voice acting: Princess Peach's voice!

The just go "oh" and "aww" all the time. Then when you beat the game, Mario says "thank you so much for playing my game". And thank you do much for a waste of money on this stupid game. - Chaotixhero

Super Mario sunshine's voice acting was negatively reviewed by fans and critics alike. That's probably why they took it out. Personally, I found the voice acting okay aside from peach's voice being ditzier than usual and Bowser's voice being an insult to everything that his character stands for! - HeavyDonkeyKong

6The Controls

The controls themselves aren't bad, but I always hated using the nunchuck for a big adventure in need of many control inputs like this, so I always disliked these controls. Anyway, this is actually the only thing remotely bad about this game, it is a really solid game.

The controls are easy yes but nothing special at all - Chaotixhero

The easier the controls the better. Why does the control need to be special? - Hakros323

The controls are TOO easy. The controls are too easy that it not that much fun... OK sure it is but I guess the controls are not special (compared to other games) is because there's nothing much to it except the power-ups

Controls Are Good - VideoGamefan5

7The Music

Heck no! The music of this game is incredible. It's different than other Mario games. It's one of the greatest parts of a phenomenal game!

If the music is good then why is it on this list?

Because there were some soundtracks that were supposed to be used in the sequel.

Now that I think about it, the music is great. So why did I even put it here? - Chaotixhero

Because it is the only game with the Beach Bowl Galaxy/Sea Slide Galaxy music tracks & Bigmouth Galaxy/Deep Dark Galaxy music & it should be even featured in the sequel.

The Music Is Awesome - VideoGamefan5

Honeycomb galaxy and gold leaf galaxy. Enough said - Chaotixhero

9The Hub World

Why? It's easy to navigate, not that big, and beautiful =/

It is bad, but Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door has an even worse hub world. Seriously? Rogueport? Worst hub world ever! But I love Flipside! And I wanted to go to Sarasa Land, not the crappy Mushroom Kingdom where Princess Peach makes very big fusses.

Aw, man I love the Mushroom Kingdom! So iconic. But I hate the princess.

I like Rogueport too though. I'm not insulting Flipside or anything, but I love Rogueport! - HeavyDonkeyKong

10It Has a Sequel

I hate both Mario Galaxy games, especially because of Princess PEach & infrequent penguins in SMG2.

And the sequel is... Better with music but worster with controls - Chaotixhero

The Contenders

11Sonic: Lost World Is Better Than This

Who ever put this here, Thank you! I don't care what some of you will say, Sonic lost world is way better and just because it on the Wii U doesn't mean it has worst controls. The controls are great once you get use to them and at least sonic lost world has challenge while Mario galaxy is a cakewalk

Sonic lost world is boring. The gravity gimick is a rip off, and barley any speed, and the whips were just added with no story to them or anything just to add more use for the gamepacd

That how I feel about super Mario Galaxy. Everything what you said except almost something - Chaotixhero

I agree strongly. Super Mario Galaxy is awful & would've been a perfect game until Princess Peach was in this game instead of Princess Daisy and Super Mario Galaxy 2 exists.

It Isn't, Sonic Lost World Is A Very Decent Game, But Not As Mario Galaxy - VideoGamefan5

12Terrible Power-ups

Boo Mario is an awesome power up! The ability to be a boo is awesome. Spring Mario sucks though as it's uncontrollable and Bee Mario feels slow flying and is pretty useless besides for climbing on honey walls.

The only thing that is fair here is that the terrible power ups are terrible.

Ha ha Bee Mario?! Boo Mario? Spring Mario? These power-ups are so stupid! Who came up with these? - Chaotixhero

13Princess Daisy Was Not In The Game

Agreed she is only in ONE main game and heck I think Nintendo is gonna comepletely forget about her and why the heck in rosalina everywhere now? Its only been like 8 years and daisy has been around for 26! They did not even do anything for her 25th anniversary!

Thank good she wasn't! I don't want no whinny, dumb, poser ruining a good game that has the goddess Rosalina in it!

Princess Daisy is way better than Princess Peach. And you may know why.

Princess Daisy is a bad character, I can still agree.

Forget that poser. Rosalina's here! - DCfnaf

14No Frog Suit

Actually, it is hard to control on land see Nathaniel Bandy's video on Top 5 Worst Mario power ups/Smash bros items and he'll tell you all about the frog suit. But yes, along with the penguin suit, makes swimming much easier. - recaller

And I thought people hated the frog suit.

15Princess Peach's quotes

She barely has any! How does she ruin the game if she only appears a few times?!? - HeavyDonkeyKong

If she was voiced by Leslie Swan, you fanboys would probably love this game1You are hating an amazing game over one characters voice! WHY?!? - HeavyDonkeyKong

@HeavyDonkeyKong: I think that's the dumb Peach haters problem. Because even though they hate her voice, they want her to have an amazing and memorable moment with her like in SM 64.

"Mario! The power of the stars is restored to the castle... And it's all thanks to you! Thank you, Mario! "

16Too Easy

A game does not have to be hard to be fun

Super Mario Galaxy's difficulty gets higher if you go far into the game. Even most comet levels are hard - bugger

Their are lots of hard levels,it's just that chaotic hero is to much of a noob in this game to reach and - Nateawesomeness

17This Game is Not a Crossover

I know this is a Mario-only game, but guess what? Crossover character could've been featured in this game although this I a Mario-only title. I find crossovers to be fairly underrated.

Does every game have to be a crossover? - TheYoshiPyro64

THANK GOODNESS Mario & Sonic shouldn't have crossed over it's just unnecessary and uneeded

Why does this matter?

Bull. It is very innovative, just like Super Mari Sunshine and Super Mario 64! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Hon, Sonic Lost World is UNORIGINAL, it ripped off of THIS,

Get your facts right mario Galax came out in 2007 sonic lost wold came out In 2014 7 years later - epictoonsfan1

Going into space, spinning using a luma (a baby star) under your hat to attack and launch yourself from Launch stars (that were Lumas before), using a cursor to shoot star bits to confuse enemies and feed special Lumas to become galaxys, collecting power stars to light a beckon in the middle of the comet observatory (that was shut down by bowser) so you could find your way to the engine room and power it up so you, the toad brigade (a group a toads consisting of the smart one, the working/banker one, the sleeping one who sometimes gives you half an awnser to an important question before sleeping again, the mail toad, the Captian who has a slightly big ego and HIS OWN GAME), and Roselina (the princess of the universe basically) could travel to the center of the universe to fight bowser and save the princess (from her own castle that bowser lifted with a UFO), AND the universe, is original.

19The Ending

The ending sure sucks! Re: after Princess Peach fall from the airship/being free from getting kidnapped, she gets very insane and angry at the beginning of the ending cutscene. I mean, come on! Peach was about to fall into the wormhole to die in here. This is all Peach's fault. Seriously, why doesn't she wear a bun?! The sequel should've had the end of the universe, not this game. Who knows? Maybe Super Mario Galaxy 3 will have a similar ending to Super Mario Galaxy. Also, guess what? It's not at all fair that Prince Peach just did not do anything in this game. And the Star Festival should have been in the sequel of Super Mario Galaxy instead.

Oh that ending... gave me a little tear. The third I like from this game
The second is two of the levels and the first is the music - Chaotixhero

This is the ending the sequel shall have, not the original!

The ending was awesome!

20It Is The Reason Why Sonic Lost World Is Bad

I enjoyed sonic lost world but thanks to this stupid game, not even Sonic can be a little creative. I bet pac-man can't make one without someone yelling on the internet it's a rip off - Chaotixhero

Sonic lost world copied super Mario galaxy

People! Mario went into space in super Mario land 2: six golden coins! Mario did NOT rip off sonic! LOOK IT UP! - HeavyDonkeyKong
