That was the first star that made the cosmo guide show up for me lol. There never was any lvl quite like that one where you got to play with that power up so it was weird getting used to it. It made me initially hate it, but love it afterwards, it was a nice challenge and still fun to play.

Keep that place in mind its a good place to grind starbits if you need em.

I tried doing it without the life powerup for the longest time, then gave in and bought it. Not surprisingly it made it much easier.

For sure! Now it's a lot of fun. I used this level yesterday to get up to 1800 stars to open up a level in World 6.

I have one major problem with this game. I can't get a close up shot camera like Super Mario 64. I am at this fucking star where I got to jump on heads for pts, and I keep missing the heads because my shadow is so hard to see far away and in water.

Otherwise I love the game, upto star 91 now.

I agree the chimp jumping stars are a bitch because of lining up properly.

I decided I would actually go for the 120 this time (dunno about 242...), and I'm at 117 now. Just a few comet S levels left and I foresee a lot of cursing.

You folks are all just a tad further along then me. I think I'm up to a star total of 17. :) I am loving every minute of it so far, and the second player is way more fun in this game. My kids and I like helping each other out, and that 2nd player does make the game a lot easier. If you're stuck on some star, maybe recruit a helper?

Yeah that's my biggest complaint with the game. Not being able to customize your view makes the chimp stomp stars hard to get and in the "second quest" it makes getting some of the green stars hard because it's difficult to judge your jumps.

In the first one you basically just collected/shot star bits right? Maybe you could annoy enemies or something. In this one you do that and have a luma character that can grabs coins and shit to hold on to and give to P1 when they need it. I haven't actually played it, but it seems a lot more helpful.

I've been playing this game for several weeks now. Fun, typical mario. The level design is very creative, on a couple levels the camera angles were a bit awkward. I'm in my 20s and i'd say this game is semi diffcult i can imagine 8-10 yr old it would be difficult even more especially since it marketed to kid gamers too

You can also get to the final part with Yoshi, but it requires some INSANE sequence breaking.

I just played this over the past week or so and got star 242 tonight after losing like 7 million lives.

Those Green Stars were pointless and didn't add any enjoyment to the game to me. It was just forcing me to watch cut scenes again and play through small parts of each level over and over and over. Ugh. Seems like a lazy way to draw out the length of the game. I loved just exploring the levels in Super Mario 64 and it would have been fun to have hidden stars or something there, but this Green Star crap is lame in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

While I'm at it, the level design was particularly lazy in the last few worlds (not all of the levels, but a lot). Its like the designers ran out of good ideas.

Furthermore, I'm f-ing sick of Star Bits. Having to bank 9,999 was lame. This goes hand in hand with the motion controls. While I don't mind the waggle for Spin Jumps and other things, the actions the waggling cause negate the need to use other moves. I think 90% of all tough to reach spots can be accomplished by Backflip + Spin. I think I used the Triple Jump all of once this game and that was to get one Green Star. I suppose the Triple Jump doesn't lend itself to these small 'planets' within each level. I wish we could go back to a regular controller instead of the Remote/Nunchuck combo. New Super Mario Bros. Wii's waggle was pretty well done. If I could just hold a regular controller (i.e. Classic Controller) and do that waggle for some things some of the time, I think that would be a good compromise.

This game is a very natural extension of the first Galaxy game (only somehow the camera was pretty bad in this game compared to the first). I think it was just a matter of "Hey, we have some more ideas and more things we can do with this Galaxy stuff that we didn't put in the first game (for whatever reason)." So they made the sequel, then filled it with some less-than-good level design in the latter half, then dragged it out even more with the Green Star crap. They should have just played the "Complete the game again with Luigi" card from the first SMG instead of doing the Green Stars.

I'd advise most people to just get the 120 Stars and call it a day.
