Game Strengths Nintendo and Shigeru Miyamoto have done it again! Mario Sunshine is a winning successor to Super Mario 64, the game many consider to be the best console title released on the N64 and the defining game for the 3D platform genre. Although gameplay in Mario Sunshine is similar to that of Super Mario 64, gamers can expect new moves, new enemies, and sprawling urban/suburban environments that are a departure from the fanciful areas of Mushroom Kingdom. Set in a coastal town, Mario must use his water cannon backpack to spray water on paint blotches that fall from the sky to preserve the beauty of his town. Mario himself is more detailed than ever, boasting a newly improved high-polygon count and detailed texturing. He also features an extensive facial animation system that displays various emotions including happy, confused, and even exhausted.
