That may not be a popular opinion, but I have to agree. Very uneven and some levels — I’m looking at you, pachinko level — are almost impossible due to poor camera angles. I seem to recall hearing they had to rush the game to meet a deadline?
That Delfino Plaza music though...that tune will stick in your head for days...
For me, I rate games like Sunshine based on how many times I may have replayed it, as that will tell me how much I was in to said title. Sunshine I finished only once, and had ZERO interest in playing it again, so yeah, far from my favorite Mario title, but I did at least finish it. Most Mario titles for me are nice fun romps that I revisit here and there due to the fun factor of said titles(or trying for 100%), and Sunshine just wasn't that fun for me.
It did very much have a "rushed" feel, but I don't know if that is true or not, but it is for sure a title that didn't meet Miyamoto's mantra of a "A bad game delayed.......", if in fact true?
