Hose down enemies and meet the locals in this colorful, action-packed adventure set in sprawling 3D worlds with surprises around every corner. Made in USA. Amazon.com Six years. Six long years we?ve had to wait for a new Mario game, and finally it?s here. And even considering the ridiculously unfair expectations, Super Mario Sunshine is almost entirely as good as you?d hope and expect. The premise of the game is that Mario?s tropical holiday is ruined when he?s stitched up by an evil look-alike for daubing graffiti all over the island. Rather conveniently, there?s a water pump waiting for him to use, which not only washes away the mess but also doubles as a handy jet pack. The jet pack aspect means that whenever you fall off something you have the chance to immediately recover. This built-in safety net means the game can afford to be far more ambitious in its level design than ever before, with massive levels filled with trampolines, tightropes, water-powered windmills, huge coral reefs, and mountains and mountains of platforms. The whole thing looks amazing, too, with the most realistic water ever seen in a video game, and a near-infinite draw distance. On top of all this are rideable, fruit-juice-spewing Yoshis, extra water nozzles, super-hardcore platform levels where Shadow Mario nicks your jet pack, and goop-generating bosses who seem to live to make Princess Peach?s laundry a nightmare. After the sweet but rather short pleasures of Luigi?s Mansion and Pikmin, you need have no fear that Mario Sunshine is of a similarly brief nature. There are a total of 120 shines to collect--the same number of stars as in Super Mario 64--and the game world is at least as large and far more interactive. This is without question the best game on the GameCube yet. That may be no more than you'd expect from a Mario game, but it's certainly more than most of us mere mortals deserve. --David Jenkins From the Manufacturer No one messes with Mario's vacation! Super Mario Sunshine for the Nintendo GameCube is Mario's biggest, most amazing adventure ever. When Mario, Peach, and an entourage of Peach's loyal Toad friends set out for a tropical vacation on lovely Dolphin Island, they're in store for much more than a relaxing holiday. A mustachioed maniac has mucked up the entire island, and Mario is accused of committing the crime. Armed with a high-tech water cannon called FLUDD (Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device), Mario sets out to clean the island, clear his name, and solve the mystery of the villainous vandal. Super Mario Sunshine sparkles with the same spot-on play control that's made Mario the main man in the vid biz for so many years. Mario has a gang of moves at his disposal, from his trusty jumping maneuvers to all-new FLUDD techniques. Mario can use FLUDD to clean up sludge pools, attack enemies, hover through the air, and more. Special nozzle attachments scattered throughout the island provide even more ways for FLUDD to come in handy. Like in Super Mario 64, Mario has many things to accomplish in each area of Dolphin Island. Every time Mario completes a task, he is rewarded with a Shine Sprite. Mario's missions include battling giant Piranha Plants, navigating treacherous platform challenges, solving mysteries, and collecting Blue Coins. As Mario collects Shine Sprites, new areas of Isle Delfino are unlocked. This is Mario's biggest challenge ever! Luckily, Mario isn't alone. Princess Peach and her entourage of Toads aren't much help, but the island's natural population of Yoshis sure are! Mario can ride multicolored Yoshis throughout the island, using their tongue-slurping strength to accomplish various tasks. Other familiar characters make cameos throughout the game, along wit
