Meh, the videogame industry was built on clone games. Look back to the days of Space invaders, pacman, etc. Those games where cloned to death, anyway a musician can 'cover' someone elce's song - why does that not work in games?

I agree, but then again I think that might be because Mario Galaxy (to me personally) was a majorily overhyped let down of a Mario game.

Uncanny? I'm pretty sure even those boss fights are an exact rip-off just with skins. Same goes for some of the levels :roll:

I look forward to the day China actually begins producing its own IP and then gets ripped off hopefully by the millions, if not billions. I recall watching a news report once where some of the fake label makers in China were complaining about bootleggers ripping off their bootleg merchandise of Western material. The sheer nerve! :lol:

@ dark_gamer

If you don't think Mario Galaxy is one of the best games evermade then your a plonker.

A) If you think its a let down then you dont know what a Mario game is about.

B) I don't care if its your opinion. Your opinion is rubbish.

Game of the year...and one of the best games ever made...overhyped you say?

Anyone who thinks that looks better than Mario Galaxy needs to get an appointment with their optician...

You do have to admire the programmers' shameless gall, though, don't you? A job at Microsoft surely beckons. :wink:

Excellent! Loved this game. I played it before Super Mario Bros on the Amiga too :)

Right so if this game turns out to be a carbon copy of Galaxy and plays equally as well, then will it deserve similar review scores as it's inspiration?

How much credit should be deducted for originality(Or in this case lack of)?

Equally what if Galaxy never existed at all and this was completely original. Would it receive the same acclaim as Mario?

How much praise do reviewers add on because it's a Mario game?
Sho Ryu Ken and that!!

Couldn't agree more.
The core ninto games are the only reason I still got my wii. Only have 4 Wii games at the moment.(SMG, NSMBW, Prime trilogy, Pikmmin2 Wii version)

But it's PLENTY of reason anyway.

Oh yeah, and SMG2!

@Dark_gamer: Your opinion is SO overruled!
Nothing to say, really, it just is.

Even if I personally didn't like, say MW2 or Uncharted2, I wouldn't call them bad games, because they aren't.

Okay, I just saw the video and:

WTF, that does NOT look near as good as SMG.

Are you guys on mushrooms and if so are they cheap chinese rip off mushrooms?

They're not real ninty shrooms, that's for sure.
