Super Mario Galaxy vs. Super Mario galaxy 2

I haven't played enough of Super Mario Galaxy 2 to say it's better yet (since I have yet to beat Galaxy 2, but completed the first), but so far it's definitely on the right track. Now, Super Mario Galaxy did invent the new game play but Galaxy 2 just adds to it. But all in all, which would you say is the superior game and had a stronger entertainment impact?

To be honest I like the first installment better. The first Super Mario Galaxy had more of a story to it & better feel for gameplay. SMG2 is a good game but it seems to be lacking the charm of the first iteration IMPO. /=

In my opinion, I enjoyed Galaxy 1 over 2, but I think that's simply because it was such a revolutionary game at the time, and while Galaxy 2 did add a whole bunch of new features, it didn't completely turn the Mario world upside down as Galaxy 1 did (well..yes it did lol). So I think technically, Galaxy 2 is a 'better' game, in terms of sheer scope and gameplay mechanics being fine tuned and everything, but I still would have to go with Galaxy 1. In a lot of ways I almost don't view them as being separate though, just a continuation..so comparing the two is a bit tricky for me.

Idk, I find that though the gameplay is good in SMG2, I tend to like SMG for it's story (much as Pikahalf commented on).. But, impo: SMG2 sort of fell short of that & felt more like it was trying to separate itself from the first iteration by having Rosalina ghosts show up & help out should you need it.

Do you have any guesses as to what Super Mario Galaxy 3 might bring?

The first Super Mario Galaxy is definitely the superior game, the sequel was great but it was lacking in some areas. Super Mario Galaxy 1 was perfectly balanced and generally more inventive, especially in terms of level design. On the other hand, Super Mario Galaxy 2 suffered from a few sharp difficulty spikes that are very uncommon in a Nintendo title. By all means, both are great games but if I could only choose one it would have to be Super Mario Galaxy 1.
