Description: Super Mario Galaxy is one of the best, if not THE best game I have ever played. It was released in 2007 and it’s one of those games that never bores you, or me at least, I’ll speak for myself… What I noticed back then when I first started playing it and what I definitely notice now is how well crafted this game is. In this particular case I’m talking about the audio in the game. You can really tell that Nintendo has the budget and the time to give a lot of attention to all the music, sound design and voice acting in a game like this. No sound is unnecessary and the sounds you hear are all very clear and well created. The soundtrack has a very unique character and of course it helps that it’s recorded by a real orchestra, but the music pieces that are more electronic are just as special and fun. The voice acting never becomes irritating or too repetitive and I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that this game wouldn’t be the same without all of Mario’s ‘wahoooo’s, wahaaa’s and whooo’s’. The sound design, the soundtrack and the voice acting all really contributes to the gaming experience, it really sucks you into this imaginary world that you don’t really want to leave. So this is definitely a ‘pretty’ for me!
