I bought this game and I really enjoy it. There is less exploration then Super Mario 64 to this point from what I have heard some of the later challenges will rectify that though. The game is going pretty quickly too as of yet. I already have 60 stars. This game is one thing though incredibly fun. Unlike sunshine which had the same theme throughout the whole game this game is so diverse you wonder how nintendo came up with such great ideas. They through everything at this one and it all works somehow.
