Top Ten Reasons Why Super Mario Galaxy Is Bad


The Top Ten

1 Princess 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

They could have just made it Mario vs Bowser with no Peach and it would be fine - Randomator

2 The 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

What - TeamRocket747

3 The 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

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

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

It's not a big deal since Mario controls better underwater in this game than he ever will in future games. - darthvadern

4 The 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

Trolling funhouse here we are

Too easy or hard no normal - YOSHIA2121

5 The 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!

Ehh... There's not much talking in SMG it's mostly Mario speaking while you move around and there's no problem with his voice actor.

In the beginning when I heard Peach... As much as I like her, MY GOD WHY!?

eh - YOSHIA2121

6 The Controls

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 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 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

It would be at least passable if it had non motion controls. Instead, it's bad.

7 The 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!

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.

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.

I hated the music for the Space Junk Galaxy so much. I time I listen to it I want to kill myself

9 The Hub World

I like the hub world! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Rosalina haters ruin everything - yunafreya648

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

It's stupid and belongs to the most hated Mario character, Space Peach

10 Rosalina was introduced

Whoever made this comment under me is a Daisy Fan. I have news for you. Daisy hasn't been appearing in SEVERAL GAMES. Why! Cause of her bratty fans. Waluigi? Nope. Cause of his bratty fans. And it's not fair to judge a character based on their fanbase. Why does every character have to be loud and annoying? Why can people simply understand why she's bland and quiet? Does anyone listen to the stories anymore? Do I ask to many questions? - DCfnaf

This was a comment made by an immature Daisy fan. Rosalina is not a parasite. She is a queen and controls the universe. Sure, I like Daisy to, but there are good Rosalina and daisy fans and bad Rosalina and Daisy fans. Rosalina is quiet because she lost her mother. She hasn't hade an easy childhood. If YOU were Rosalina, I think you would be quiet too. This is not offending any character in any way, I am just telling you that you can't always hate chracters because of their fanbase. And yes, Rosalina hate is going way to far. Save all the hate.

Nintendo unleashed a parasite with this game. I hope they get rid of Rosalina I really don't understand why they keep shoving her down our throats.

I guess Donkey Kong is bad because Mario and DK were introduced. - TeamRocket747

The Contenders

11 It Has a Sequel

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

I agree and disagree

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

So, galaxy 2 is even better than galaxy 1 - YOSHIA2121

12 Terrible 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.

The power ups are sweet - YOSHIA2121

It's just the Spring Mushroom, the rest are Good - ToadF1

13 Too 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

This isn't even an issue, it should be easy to start with, and there are a number of levels that are hard. It only becomes "too easy" if you have already beaten those levels, or SMG2.

This was the main reason I didn't Like the galaxy games I like a challenge and see how challenging 64 and sunshine were I expecting much higher and Galaxy was way too short too even beating 100%.

14 Sonic: 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

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.

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

No it isn't - YOSHIA2121

15 Princess 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!

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

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

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

Good she is annoying - YOSHIA2121

16 No 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.

so what - YOSHIA2121

17 Princess 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

She sucks but at least it isn't pink gold peach - YOSHIA2121

Her awful yelling.Also Mario voice too.

18 This 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.

Why does this matter?

Does every game have to be a crossover? - TheYoshiPyro64

So? - ToadF1

19 Princes Peach's Voice

LOL she only speaks in the beginning and in letters. And what you people don't have a 'MUTE' button on your remote LOL

What's so good about Princess Peach's voice?! She had a much better voice in old games like SM64 & Super Paper Mario. Agreed, Chaotixhero?

20 This Game is Harder Than Its Sequel

This contradicts a previous entry - DCfnaf

Oh just because it's harder it's bad. This is how I know this list is made by an 8-year old - GamingGoku757
