 Super Mario Sunshine GameCube Preview
Mario's creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, had a similar experience over a year ago when he tried to take a vacation from his duties at Nintendo and instead found the inspiration for Pikmin hiding for him in his backyard garden.
This isn't what happens in Mario Sunshine, the polygons that actually make up the character are painted individually so that the mud shows up only in the spots where it would splash on.
Mario can use the front streams to clean off the areas in front, or fly overtop of the sludge, allowing the jet-like streams at his back to clean as he travels above it.

 Super Mario Sunshine - ESCMag Review
Mario, Peach and a group of the Mushroom gang are on a jet to a tropical island, out of the Mushroom Kingdom, and onto the sunny beaches during a well needed vacation.
Mario is ordered to clean up the island with the help of a device similar to his brother’s vacuum cleaner in Luigi’s Mansion, although Mario’s F.L.O.O.D. water pack has much more uses and innovative functions.
Where Mario 64 did most of the work sizing up the camera and leaving the precise stuff to you with the Nintendo 64’s C-Buttons, in Sunshine you are forced to deal with the camera mostly on your own using the C-Stick.

While at first glance, the graphics in Super Mario Sunshine may appear to be very bland and pastel, it’s a marked improvement over the very tentative first steps into 3-D we saw back on the Nintendo 64.
These tropical themes are well punctuated by splashes of the soundtrack from the original Super Mario Bros., particularly using the 6-note intro of the underground theme for dramatic effect.
Charles Martinet’s talents are vastly underutilized for the voice of Mario, providing only the standard shouts and yells during action in addition to a few special quips for certain events; there’s no dialogue from the plumber to speak of.

 Super Mario Sunshine review for the GAMECUBE
Mario, Princess Peach, and their entourage of Toadlings are off to the tropical getaway of Isle Delfino for some much needed rest and relaxation.
Mario retains most of his 64 moves, from the ground pound to the somersault, but these two moves now use analog stick rotations due to the elimination of a duck move.
Super Mario Sunshine broadens that approach, transforming the entire town of Delfino Plaza into a launchpad for adventure, replete with secrets and entry portals laden throughout the nooks and crannies of this seaside burg.

 Super Mario Sunshine on GameCube
Super Mario Sunshine will be the first to the forefront, followed by Star Fox Adventures, Metroid Prime, and the Legend of Zelda.
Mario's classic jumps have returned and a new hover spin jump was added, which can be executed by spinning the analog stick 360° and pressing A. While most everything else should be straightforward to anyone who has played Mario 64, the backpack functions do take a little bit of explaining.
Mario's water backpack serves to resolve at least one control issue by improving the gamer's ability to manipulate Mario as he jumps from one platform to another.

 Super Mario Sunshine GameCube Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Super Mario Sunshine is the kind of game that if you were to wake up tomorrow and people around you told you that it didn't really exist, that it was only in your dreams, you could believe it.
His likeness to Mario is uncanny and as soon as Princess Peach and her party arrive on the Island, the local authorities mistake Mario for their menace and take him into custody.
As with all Mario games, there are times in which the gameplay becomes incredibly hard, and as in the past there are ways to skip past the tougher levels.

Given the massive success of Super Mario 64 on the N64 console, hopes and expectations for Miyamoto's cash-cow franchise were incredibly lofty.
Super Mario Sunshine turned out to be a really, really great game in its own right, but it certainly wasn't the quantum leap that most of us were wishing for.
Mario 64 took platform games to 3D and made them work, with an array of cool moves and gameplay that was easy and fun to get into for everyone.

 Gamers Europe » Nintendo » Review » Super Mario Sunshine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
There’s a hell of a legacy to live up to, Mario 64 was not only the first 3D platform game, but it set a standard that has been the aspiration of many a developer and a standard that, some would say, hasn’t been surpassed to this day.
Mario’s quest is far from easy, however; this game is significantly harder to get to grips with than Mario 64 and the difficulty level is ever-spiralling.
This is what provides most of Super Mario Sunshine’s tension, there’s a lot more to do in one area and a lot of it involves jumping from one platform to another, so nerves of steel are required to get through a world in one piece.

Mario is immediately responsive to any command and makes flips, spins, wall jumps, and other complex maneuvers easier than you would think.

Upon arriving, Mario discovers that the island has been trashed by some creep claiming to be him, and it seems as though his vacation plans have been scrapped.
Mario's cries are about the same as they were in Super Mario 64, or any other game where Mario had voice-acting for that matter (well, kinda voice-acting, he never really formulates a full sentence, lol).
Mario still has his classic jumping ability, and therefore should be easy to manipulate if you're acccustomed to the Mario series (which I assume most of you are).

 Nintendo's Super Mario Sunshine Interview
Whenever we make a Mario game, or whenever we make any game, we want to make it so that any person can play it, regardless of his or her age.
The world of Mario is a kind of miniature garden in which players can move around as they like -- that is certainly the case with Super Mario Sunshine.
But Super Mario Sunshine took this direction -- it is an authentic sequel to Super Mario 64.

Mario found himself at the beginning of another great adventure filled with friends, foes and, of course, plenty of classic hop-and-bop action.
Mario is able to jump about endlessly with more moves and interaction with his environment.
The music is classic, the graphics are sweet (although every character besides Mario and the Princess are sooo generic), the controls are perfect, the enemies are cheap and repetitive, but the overall difficulty makes me put this game back on the self after a couple hours' worth of playing.

 "SUPER MARIO SUNSHINE"/ a game review from Christian Spotlight
"Super Mario 64" was a breakthrough game on the N64 and it stayed at the top of the heap even after classics such as "Banjo-kazooie" (and the sequel) and "Rayman 2: The Great Escape" were released.
When Mario and his pals arrive on Isle Delfino they are surprised to see it covered in a goopy paint-like substance.
Mario is equipped with a back pack sprayer called FLUDD (Flash Liquidizer Ultra-Dousing Device) and with it he can spray away the goop covering the island.

 Super Mario Sunshine - GameCritics.com
Platforming fans will find Super Mario Sunshine to be something of a mixed bagthe platforming elements are all present and accounted for, but theres not much in the way of innovation in the title.
The addition of the left shoulder button to center the camera behind Mario does help to alleviate this problem, but there are still those instances where the camera will have to be physically zoomed in or pulled back in order to keep it from getting hung up on the games environments.
Instead, Sunshine is one step lateral and a half step back from Super Mario 64which is certainly not a good thing when one considers that Super Mario 64 is six years old.

 IGN: Reader Review of: Super Mario Sunshine
Sunshine has got a huge burden to carry if it wants to win our hearts like 64 did, and nearly accomplishes the true stardom of its predecessor.
Sunshine is, to say the least, not what anyone expected as a sequel to Mario 64.
Instead of the usual Bowser-kidnaps-Peach plot, Sunshine is totally original by having an anti-Mario framing Mario in a tropical paradise and Mario gets charged with cleaning up the island, which is in a dismal state.

 Super Mario Sunshine Preview on GameCube // TVG in partnership with Sky
The demo of Super Mario Sunshine that we got to spend a fair amount of time with allowed you to tackle six different sections of the are that we have seen before in all of the screenshots that have been released so far.
Controlling Mario in the various gameplay sections was a joy, the basic control scheme, not worrying about the backpack, is very similar to Super Mario 64.
Mario can also climb in all directions on fence like objects - which you may recognise from Super Mario World and these play a part in creating fully three-dimensional platform and puzzle elements.
