Since no one has posted any reviews of Mario Sunshine I'll give my impressions. The graphics are good but it's more like an update of Mario 64. The water effects are great, the draw distance is extremely long and the game looks good but your jaw will not drop. I don't have DPLII so I can't comment on that aspect but the sound is good. This is not Halo so once again your jaw will not drop. Gameplay wise, the game is fantastic. There is so much to do in each level. There are different parts to each level so you don't stay in the same place like Mario 64. For example in the first level there is a cave for the third sunshine. This is a separate part from the rest of the level. Overall if you have a Gamecube this is a must buy. If you don't have a GC then you should seriously consider buying the system because games like this don't come along too often. It will not be the kind of game that you beat and just put down.
