Good Game, Bad Game

By Clyde1998 (talk)

I'm going to do the Mario Series this month, and next, and next again! I'm comparing Hotel Mario with Super Mario Galaxy

Good Game

You guessed it, it's Hotel Mario! Only Kinding, it's Galaxy. Galaxy had the same plot as every Mario game, Peach gets kidnapped, by Bowser, and Mario (and Luigi) saves her, but they but a twist on it. A comet passes over the Mushroom Kingdom and rains down magical stars and stardust, so they celebrate.Peach invites Mario to the castle, like Mario 64, Bowser then came, with Bowser Jr. had stole The Castle. Mario finds Peach, with 121 stars. Now you can play as Luigi.

Bad Game

Hotel Mario, not on a Nintendo console game, it's for the Phillips CDi. Bowser and the Koopalings have taken over the Mushroom Kingdom(like in every Super Mario Bros. 3 & Super Mario World), where they've built seven Koopa Hotels and have kidnapped the Princess, hiding her in one of them. After Mario and Luigi are informed of this, they set out to rescue her.

The Cut scenes are cartoons, on the boxart, Mario has 5-fingers, but in the game he has 4!

Philips Media had acquired the rights to produce Mario and The Legend of Zelda games after initial plans to make a CD-ROM add-on for the Super Nintendo, and that fell through. The CD-i was a poor console anyway. The quotes were rubbish too...

"Nice of the princess to invite us over for a picnic, 'eh Luigi?" - Mario being played as Mark Graue in Hotel. "EEK! A Ghost!" - Luigi in Galaxy.

Overall

So, All in all... Galaxy is a much better game than Hotel Mario.
