The definitive sandbox Mario game. Every aspect of the game is very polished as you would expect from a high profile Nintendo game. The worlds and stages are wonderfully designed, colorful and exciting. There are an extremely high number of moons to collect, so be prepared to spend countless hours if you are a completist. But it doesn't get old since it's not redundant at all. There are some great tunes, but the soundtrack overall didn't really blow me away. Fantastic game all around and a must play for any Switch owner.
Biggest problem with this game: making me use motion controls. I HATE that I don’t have the option to turn these off. Awful, awful, awful decision. Immediately we’re down a point. The other two things that bug me is that the Dark Kingdom?? (With the dragon) and the cloud kingdom are so small. They feel like they could have been excluded or expanded upon. Like why leave them there then? Another problem here is that the story is stupid again, it’s very samey, the game plays it safe. Look, I love Mario, I grew up with him, but the cap being the only innovation here is pretty lame. I love cappy and it he really expand Mario’s movement! Mario has never felt better honestly, but I personally would have wanted the other power ups in here too. I like the philosophy of the game, the controls are tight, and the game was so fun at one point that I had a tear from the joy I felt. Not even kidding. Yeah I know, what kind of sissy crap is that, right? 64 was my first video game ever as a human being: this game struck a chord with me. Wonderful game, some questionable decisions. I feel like Odyssey 2 will be near perfect.
This game gave a never ending nostalgic feels! One of the best and most entertaining games I've ever played. The ending of this game also gave me "feels".
Level designs were so amazing! Unique mechanics. A masterpiece!
If you're looking for a game that will give you enough stress and challenge. I recommend this.
