Perfectly Prepared for the Perfect Run

Hello and welcome to my last post before I go on an indefinite hiatus. Since I knew for a while this would be the final post I would be making for a while, I decided to go all out for the finale. For the finale I decided to do the hardest video game challenge that I know of. Super Mario Galaxy 2’s The Perfect Run. First things first though, just to unlock this challenge you need to collect all 120 Power Stars in the main campaign, 120 total Green Stars from every level, and you need to have beaten ‘The Ultimate Test’ which is a level that tests everything you’ve learned from playing the game. The Perfect Run is the same layout as ‘The Ultimate Test’ but you only have one point of health and no checkpoints. You’ll have to be perfectly prepared for this behemoth of a finale. Now if you’re watching someone play through this level you might think it’s easy, but that’s just what the game wants you to think. You have to do the entire gauntlet with one health so of course it looks easy. Actually beating the level is another matter entirely. In both Super Mario Galaxy games one of my biggest problems is I over or underestimating my longer jumps, so this gauntlet is a nightmare. The final part of this challenge involves a gauntlet of Hammer Bros which lead to the final three Boomerang Bros you need to defeat to end the level once and for all. If you don’t deal with the Hammer Bros on the way to the Boomerang Bros the Hammer Bros will still be attacking you while you’re trying to deal with the Boomerang Bros and that is a lot to deal with all at once. I would only recommend this challenge if you have obtained all 242 previous stars and studied your route multiple times using the easier version of the level.
