    I believe those scores are from Famitsu-GameCube, a weekly GC only magazine & not the "real" Famitsu. It's an unofficial mag that tends to review higher than the "real" magazine.

    I'm on a wait and see mode. Mario 64 was such a revolutionary game for it's time, it just blew everyone away. Since then, i've come to the realization that 3-D jumping puzzles SUCK.

    Miyamoto said that Super Mario Sunshine isn't doing much more than expanding on what was in Super Mario 64. It's supposed to be a good game, not a revolutionary one.

    I'd prefer it to be revolutionary, but after Mario 64 it's kind of hard to revolutionize the genre again.

    Joesph, the strange thing about Super Mario Sunshine is that screen captures all look pretty bad, but the game in motion looks really good. I was ready to pass on SMS until I saw some in-game footage.

    Apparently (he said, searching for where on the Edge forums he read it. Probably somewhere in the Mario Sunshine folder), 'real' Famitsu have given it 38. Also, the two 8s from Famitsu Gamecube were because the second half of the game is too hard. Which for Mario64 veterans has to be A Good Thing, surely?

    Well, people are playing (and loving) it now. I am now officially deeply envious.

    I'd buy SMS even if the reviews were butt. I can't wait for this game! Will July end already?

    There is often a fine line between a game being truly challenging and a game that is simply cheap. Perhaps this Mario game crosses that line on occasion.

    Having played Jumping Flash (very good) and Floating Runner (below average) before Mario 64 came out, Mario 64 didn't seem revolutionary to me at all. But it was damned good.
