Yo amo mucho este juego y es mi segundo Mario 3d favorito, su soundtrack y ambientacion son simplemente hermosos y muy vivos

Pretty underated game in my opinion, it's very fun and it's mechanics are quite unique for the time, it deserves a little love.

Muy buen juego a pesar de la edad, la remasterización le sentó bien, subía la dificultad en sus fases de plataformeo y fue un juego original y entretenido, recomendado, el inicio es peak fiction

Another game I missed the initial release of due to not having a GameCube, here is Super Mario Sunshine! A game I struggled to pull myself off of and made a massive stream with by accident because of how much fun it was!
I was initially sceptical when I came across this game and first saw footage because of the idea that Mario was cleaning places up and the massive change from the N64 game, however, Mario Odyssey worked so there's no reason why this shouldn't.
The game starts up with Mario, Peach and Co travelling to this holiday resort in the sun and Peach noticing a strange dark image that looks like Mario appearing in the background, but the rest of them are too distracted about the idea of all the kinds of wonderful food they'd get to try!
The plane soon comes to a stop due to a large puddle of filth and Mario soon gets equipped with the F.L.U.D.D. (Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device) which was built by Professor E Gadd for this very occasion!
After this, Mario gets arrested for having created the mess in the first place and spreading filth all over the islands and even making things disappear, but you manage to get released to start cleaning up all these messes and you have to collect the many missing shines that were also taken by this imposter Mario.
The FLUDD device adds some interesting new platforming tricks, much like Hatty, using jets of water to boost your jumps and even help float up or down to places that you can't normally reach.
It's another fun game from Nintendo and certainly something that, if you want, you can find yourself losing many hours of entertainment to it.
