According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief

Parents have nothing to fear from Super Mario Sunshine. Nintendos mascots latest outing is very kid friendly and has nothing objectionable. Parents may take into consideration the fact that the game is a little difficult in spots and may frustrate younger players.

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. Nintendo fans will want to own this one despite the games numerous flaws.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers also have little to worry about as the vast majority of the games information is presented in easy to read text.
