5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game! 9/10 15 Sep 2006
Format:Video Game
I'm really annoyed. I'm annoyed at the fact that Sunshine has had some terrible reviews, causing its average score to plummet to an average 4 stars! First of all, the people who have given this game a 1,2 or 3 star review are not providing a lot of detail and aren't really conveying their opinions to the best of their ability- this automatically should cause their reviews to be ignored, and maybe even deleted.

Sunshine's an excellent game, offering beautiful sceneries and worlds, filled with lots of colour and water! The graphics are amazing, especially as it was released very early in the gamecube's lifespan. The water may very well be the most realistic looking water ever in videogames, and i'm not using the word "ever" in vein at all. It's wonderful and amazingly fun to splash about in the deep oceons that Sunshine provides, and also rewarding as you can find hidden treasures and mini-games, resulting in Shine Sprites! By the way, Shine Sprites are the new Stars, and they look so cool, believe me!

The game mechanics are similar to 64, except that this time around you have a new compadre, Fludd! This doesn't ruin the game at all, but merely improves it. For example, if your simply running around with mario, you could spray a bit of water in front of him and slide down the path with sprays of water rushing from mario's sides. This is both, fun and visually stunning. Sunshine offers everything you could want from a platformer. Cool, unique bosses, big and bright levels and simple controls. This results in a game that is, without a doubt the best platformer of this generation. I've played lots of platformers, jak and daxter (all of them), ratchet and clank (all three) and even that platformer on the xbox based around a stupid racoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A game for people wanting a fun game 14 Oct 2003
By "oz3k"
Format:Video Game
I often here people complaining the gamecube is for 'little kids', this is one of those titles which doesn't have big guns, mutated zombies and 'realistic' graphics. This is a game which has a quality often forgot in today's gaming world, it has fun gameplay, a quality to often forgotten. The graphics may not look like 'real' life, but I wouldn't want that, it has fun little characters great looking worlds and loads of great vibrant colours. A game which is rare nowadays, a game which hasn't been rushed and made to make money, it's a game where time has been spent to create a fantastically fun game and for me one of my all-time favourite games. They have used the classic formula like in Mario 64, and I hope they will continue and make more games like this.
This is a game which can only come from a company which takes time over its games like Nintendo. Something the x-box and ps2 will properly never have. This is a must for all gamecube owners, hours of fun at and nice and cheap. It doesn't get any better than this!

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid game 4 Jan 2007
By Beechy
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario has been around a while, and has starred in some ace games, such as the brilliant Mario 64. Mario 64 set the standard for all platformers to be at if they were truly great. Mario Sunshine is a great game but does not have the qualities to match the awesome Mario 64. This is probably the first mario game with a 'gimmick'. FLUDD is a back pack which mario wears and can spray water. This adds some new puzzle elements to the game, but also takes some away. For instance FLUDD can be used to clear away mud, whereas in Mario 64 this was imposible. However, now Mario can use FLUDD to cross big gaps, whereas in Mario 64, Mario would have to find a switch to make platforms appear. It swings in roundabouts. But what I first noticed about the game was the graphics. These are the most beautiful graphics on the GC. Overall i like this game. It is not more of the same. Which is is good and bad points. I still recommend it highly

5.0 out of 5 stars Another quality Nintendo title 13 July 2005
Format:Video Game
Being a fan of Super Mario 64 I was wondering what I would replace the hours spent on it after finishing the game. Then I found the answer. I started playing this at a friend's house and was instantly hooked. For anyone familiar with Super Mario 64 there will be a fair few noticable similarities. Red coins, collecting 100 yellow coins, fighting bosses. You will love this. It has better graphics, more variety in missions, a slightly different story to all the traditional Mario games but still all those attributes that made Mario 64 so great.
This is a very fun game. I've played non stop for the past two days and am yet to finish, but I hope it takes a while for me to do so. It is suitable for everyone. A friend's 11 year old brother is as fond of this game as I am(18 year old). Definitely a game with very broad appeal. I am a huge fan of Nintendo games and this is one that just makes me love them even more.
Definitely my favourite Gamecube game.
Highly recommended!
