Mario's not supposed to look real, though; it's a platformer and has a completely different art style from Metroid. For what it is, it looks great. Very colorful and has some great graphical effects with the water, ice, fire and lava.

I completely agree. For what it is, Mario looks just about as good as I could have ever hoped for. I love the game. I got it for xmas and am currently at 67 stars, slowly working my way to 120. I just brought mario up for comparison because otherrs mentioned it when talking about wii's graphics, but in my opinion, in terms of 'best looking' wii game, I'd have to give it to metroid.

Yeah, I agree with that as well. Metroid edges it out slightly, I think.

Having a blast w/ Mario.. I got it for Christmas as well, and I'm up to 74 stars now. The game just keeps getting better and better.. still amazing after 45-50 hours of play. I've played a ton of games during my life, but I would definitely rank it among the top 5.

Mario Galaxy is my pick for sure... I love metroid, but mario... it looks more like CG and less like "realism". I absolutely love it.

Some parts in Mario are downright gorgeous. I just finished the Melty Molten Galaxy () and it had lava balls thrown through the air with smoke trails and lava pools bubbling up all around me as I took off through the middle of it all on launch stars.
