Despite appearances, Super Mario Sunshine is not just for kids. The game provides fun and challenges for all age groups, although if you crave for killing this is not for you.
The worlds are large, detailed and brightly coloured. The world boundaries aren't too stupid and the scenery is relatively interactive. The water plays an integral part in the game so Nintendo have put extra effort into the water effects, which rival those in Wave Race Blue Storm.
The gameplay is interesting and varied with different tactics needed for different situations and different enemies. The FLUDD system (the water gadget Mario carries on his back) works well and is definitely more than just a gimmick. Plus, later on in the game Yoshi becomes avaliable to you which adds a fun and fresh spin to things!
There are plenty of friendly faces old and new such as Toad, Toadsworth, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Pianta, Noki and Baby Bowser which are involved in the interesting and humorous story-line.
All in all, Super Mario Sunshine is a must-have for Mario fans and people who like a fun, laid-back but challenging games.
