In his newest adventure, Mario visits a tropical island and is
mistaken for a local outlaw. So he straps on a hydro-powered
water pump to clean up the mess, clear his name and meet up with
old friends. Hose down enemies and meet the locals in this
colorful, action-packed adventure set in sprawling 3D worlds with
surprises around every corner. Made in USA.
Six years. Six long years weve had to wait for a new Mario game,
and finally its here. And even considering the ridiculously
unfair expectations, Super Mario Sunshine is almost entirely as
good as youd hope and expect.
The premise of the game is that Marios tropical holiday is
ruined when hes stitched up by an evil look-alike for daubing
graffiti all over the island. Rather conveniently, theres a
water pump waiting for him to use, which not only washes away the
mess but also doubles as a handy jet pack. The jet pack aspect
means that whenever you fall off something you have the chance to
immediately recover. This built-in safety net means the game can
afford to be far more ambitious in its level design than ever
before, with massive levels filled with trampolines, tightropes,
water-powered windmills, huge coral reefs, and mountains and
mountains of platforms.
The whole thing looks amazing, too, with the most realistic
water ever seen in a video game, and a near-infinite draw
distance. On top of all this are rideable, fruit-juice-spewing
Yoshis, extra water nozzles, super-hardcore platform levels where
Shadow Mario nicks your jet pack, and goop-generating bosses who
seem to live to make Princess Peachs laundry a nightmare.
After the sweet but rather short pleasures of Luigis Mansion
and Pikmin, you need have no fear that Mario Sunshine is of a
similarly brief nature. There are a total of 120 shines to
collect--the same number of stars as in Super Mario 64--and the
game world is at least as large and far more interactive. This is
without question the best game on the GameCube yet. That may be
no more than you'd expect from a Mario game, but it's certainly
more than most of us mere mortals deserve. --David Jenkins

No one messes with Mario's vacation! Super Mario Sunshine for the
Nintendo GameCube is Mario's biggest, most amazing adventure
ever. When Mario, Peach, and an entourage of Peach's loyal Toad
friends set out for a tropical vacation on lovely Dolphin Island,
they're in store for much more than a relaxing holiday. A
mustachioed maniac has mucked up the entire island, and Mario is
accused of committing the crime. Armed with a high-tech water
cannon called FLUDD (Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device),
Mario sets out to clean the island, clear his name, and solve the
mystery of the villainous vandal.
Super Mario Sunshine sparkles with the same spot-on play control
that's made Mario the main man in the vid biz for so many years.
Mario has a gang of moves at his disposal, from his trusty
jumping maneuvers to all-new FLUDD techniques. Mario can use
FLUDD to clean up sludge pools, attack enemies, hover through the
air, and more. Special nozzle attachments scattered throughout
the island provide even more ways for FLUDD to come in handy.
Like in Super Mario 64, Mario has many things to accomplish in
each area of Dolphin Island. Every time Mario completes a task,
he is rewarded with a Shine Sprite. Mario's missions include
battling giant Piranha Plants, navigating treacherous platform
challenges, solving mysteries, and collecting Blue Coins. As
Mario collects Shine Sprites, new areas of Isle Delfino are
unlocked. This is Mario's biggest challenge ever!
Luckily, Mario isn't alone. Princess Peach and her entourage of
Toads aren't much help, but the island's natural population of
Yoshis sure are! Mario can ride multicolored Yoshis throughout
the island, using their tongue-slurping strength to accomplish
various tasks. Other familiar characters make cameos throughout
the game, along with a wide variety of all-new characters.
Powered by Nintendo GameCube, Super Mario Sunshine is a
must-play. Classic Mario action, exciting new moves, and
surprises galore will keep you clutching your controller for
months to come.
