Japanese Multi-format mag "Famitsu" has reviewed and scored Super Mario Sunshine. You will be happy to hear that out of 4 reviewers, the scores were: 10, 10, 9 ,9 with an overall score of 38/40 giving it a Platinum award. Also, sister mag "Famitsu Cube" awarding it 10, 10, 8, 8, with the two 8 score reviewers claiming the game is too difficult in the second half. IMO this is a good thing though . For a gamer's impression see: http://pub111.ezboard.com/fgamingageforumsfrm17.showMessageRange?topicID=9236.topic&start=1&stop=20 Sounds like it will more than live up to expectations .
