5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game! 9/10 15 Sept. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a 'namba one' but close enough 24 July 2004
Format:Video Game
While the obscure Luigi's Mansion will remain just that, Mario Sunshine finds the old stalwart back on his familiar ground which proved so earth shattering back in 1996. This is basically Super Mario 64 2, which is 'mostly' a good thing.
The preface sees Mario and Princess going on holiday to Delfino Island. The moment they touch down, though, the trouble starts with a Mario look-alike spreading graffiti and pollution across the island. The real Mario is detained and his punishment is to clean the island up with the help of FLUDD - more on this a little later. Along the way, 'shines' will be 'get' (I refer to the comical Japanese translation here) and Princess Peach will get kidnapped, yet again. She needs to be put under lock and key that woman.
The FLUDD concept denotes the only original facet of the game. It is a water cannon that Mario wares for most of the game and is used to clean walls of dirt, attack enemies with and float over long distances, initially. During the course of the game you can find new parts which enable Mario to rocket jump and dash along the floor. The addition of FLUDD does allow for a greater diversity in the 'shine get' puzzles and the levels, in part thanks to the power of the Gamecube, are much larger and richer in scope. But it's not ground breaking stuff. Most of the principles that applied to Mario 64 still work here and you'll eventually build up a nice tally of shines before the going really gets tough.
This is where Mario Sunshine begins to fall over. It's tough, damn tough. That in itself is actually quite good as the game teeters you on the brink of totally frustrating you without ever going over the edge. That's if you want to do enough to complete the game. If you want all the shines then you'll need a lot of patience or Prozac.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mario Is Back! 21 Aug. 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
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.

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!
