So, the reviews for Super Mario Galaxy 2 are hitting the web, and so far, it’s not doing too shabby:

– IGN: 10/10
– EDGE: 10/10
– Examiner: 100/100
– Escapist: 100/100
– GameXPlain: 100/100
– GameTrailers: 9.7/10
– Game Informer: 9.25/10
– DigitalChumps: 100/100
– Official Nintendo Magazine: 97/100
– Famitsu: 92.5/100
– Wired: 90/100

If we count these scores the average stands at 97.2, placing it as the 3rd best-received game of all time, behind Ocarina of Time (~97.6) and the original Super Mario Galaxy (~97.3) according to Game Rankings.

Even though these numbers will certainly change a bit, nothing can change the fact that Super Mario Galaxy 2 looks like it’s going to be not only one of the best games on the Wii console, but one of the best games of all time.

We’re going to take this opportunity to write a special non-Zelda review of Super Mario Galaxy 2 in the coming weeks, but for now it looks pretty obvious: Galaxy 2 is a must-buy.
