Razortight controls, beautiful varied worlds, tons and TONS of Moons to collect, the typical Mario/Nintendo charme, nostalgic 8 and 64-bit throwbacks, an amazing new gameplay mechanic in form of Cappy... This game has literally everything you could ask for in a Mario game. If you have a Switch and you don't own this game, what the fock are you doing???P.S. I find the bad reviews here to be hilarious. These are people who also give BotW a ZERO and Batman vs. Superman a TEN. Go figure.

The best entry to the best platforming series is so ridiculously huge it’s like a theme park made of theme parks. It’s a wonderful tribute to Super Mario 64, but it’s not a lazy homage. Super Mario Odyssey draws inspiration from the superb classic to top it and everything that came after it.

Okay this a review system I am trying out.Story: 4/5 This game wasn't meant to be huge on story, so I am going to lower the score to outOkay this a review system I am trying out.Story: 4/5 This game wasn't meant to be huge on story, so I am going to lower the score to out of 5 for story specifically. Not too confusing, based on the end alone you most likely won't be disappointed. Just don't go in expecting the most complex story ever.Level Design: 15/15 One of the major parts of the game. The game is linear if you want to just progress, but it seems huge despite the average sized maps if you are going to 100% or at least at your own pace.Music: 10/10 Songs like Cascade Kingdom, Jump up Superstar, Wooded Kingdom, (Trying to avoid spoilers) Second to last Kingdom, and the ending song are just a few of the many good songs in this game. When you enter a 2D level, the 8-bit Remixes are just as good.Battle System: 5/5 Lowered to 5 because it's simple but not confusing at all. With the capture ability you have many options for fighting. This is shown well in many of the unique boss fights in certain kingdoms.Replayability: 10/10 Amazing replayability. However, if you 100%ed the game on your first run, it could remove some of it. You may want to replay using certain challenges, to fins more moons, to speedrun the game, try out different options etc.Difficulty: 10/10 "The game is too easy" Yeah sure I want to see you attempt the Volleyball Challenge for 100 and the Final Level in the game. This game is easy if you want, and hard if you want. There are several easy moons but MANY more harder ones.NPCs: 10/10 Really creative. From skeletons with hats to forks to humans, this game has many unique NPCs. The new bosses and enemies are also really unique and all have a different way to be beaten.Graphics: 5/5 Graphics aren't everything, but this game has amazing graphics.Length: 5/5 Again, the game is as long as you want it to be. You can breeze through the game, collecting just the amount of moons needed to progress through each kingdom (120 minimum are needed to complete the game, taking about 1-5 hours), or you can 100% the game, try to beat you record on one of the many challenges in this game, or simply take your time with it (about 45-72, 2-12, 15-25 hours respectively)Exploration: 15/15 Out of 15 cause this is one of the main components of the game. The maps may be average-sized, but they seem HUGE. There are so many moons to be found. The game rewards you for being curious. There are MANY ways to get most of the power moons, and there are A LOT of moons.Impact on the series: 10/10 Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are fan favorites for being an open, sandbox-like game with a lot to do. This game brings back those genres and it does not disappoint. With it being 7 years since the last sandbox style game, Super Mario Odyssey just leaves me wanting more.•Story 4/5•Level Design 15/15•Music 10/10•Battle System 10/10•Replayability 10/10•Difficulty 10/10•NPCs 10/10•Graphics 5/5•Length 10/10•Exploration 15/15•Impact 10/10Review from these points: 99/100Personal review: 100/100, story isn't everything.

It's a world that feels huge at first, then small as you get to know it, and then huge again as you realize how fantastically dense it is with secrets and challenges. It gives you a simple set of tools and then asks you to do something different with them every ten minutes. Super Mario Odyssey is a fun game, an unoriginal observation that feels nonetheless vital in the modern gaming landscape. It is a game that tasks you with finding joy, and then lets you point yourself in the right direction. It is a game you should play.

Super Mario Odyssey’s unabashed sense of whimsy and charm is all too welcome in today’s modern video game climate. Whereas other titles feel the need to overbear you with endless things to do, people to kill and towers to climb, Mario’s latest globe-trotting adventure is all too happy to keep things simple — and in the most imaginative way possible. Super Mario Odyssey is the type of game that I’d probably have taken for granted as a kid, but as an adult, I’ll cherish it for decades.
