I think the fact that this is up there with breath of the wild as a opposition to what should be your first game causes alot of problems because there impossible to compare tbh. But good story, I love the mechanics and would recommend.
I don't feel is the best Mario game ever. I felt it's kind of repetitive.
The moons should be a limited for each world, but you can easily buy them without a limit.
One of, if not the, best Mario games ever made. It's clear how much care was put into so many different worlds, costumes, and challenges.
Mario controls perfectly, the gameplay is instantaneously fun and satisfying. Beautiful graphics and gorgeous animations, alongside an immersive and catchy soundtrack make the game truly shine.
It balances pretty fine between the difficulties. You can beat it without much of a sweat, but if you do want some challenge, there'll be a handful of those as well. The replay factor, and the after-game are very good.
There are 999 moons to collect — which is great, but I think I'd rather have much less moons if that was the cost for a few more worlds. It's so much fun discovering new locations you can't help but want to keep going.
I think the game was great, but in my opinion it was a bit to short.
Best 3d game on the switch in 2021
This game is amazing! Good graphics and exquisite gameplay. Mario's movements in this game feel smooth and perfect. Even after the story ends, there is a whole lot more to do: the 800+ moons, and the free online DLC, Luigi's Balloon world (no Nintendo Online Membership required). It's a great game to play on the go as well, you can just pick it up and start from where you left off! It's a switch must-have!
Only little cons for me are that some of the levels are a little more linear and less inventive than others. Not that linear is bad in a Mario game (some of the linear levels were amazing) but I personally fell in love with the more open world levels as they just felt like massive playgrounds. So when it would switch back to more linear levels I felt it lost a bit of the fun (if every level was as big and full as the Sand level I’d be in heaven). There’s roughly 15 levels/worlds but to me only half were truly memorable. No real duds, just lots of good ones and a few truly fantastic ones. Also I didn’t feel compelled enough to continue collecting the nearly 1000 moons scattered across the levels as it just felt repetitive after a while. There is a pretty solid amount of post game stuff to do, some of which is really fun. But after about 20hrs total I put the game away satisfied and haven’t really missed it. It’s an immaculately designed Mario game, though it felt like it teased at a more open world and I just wish it was that a bit more. Less of the short levels and a few more of the massive open playground levels would have made it a 10/10 for me.
Everything about this game is great from the gameplay to even the story. This new 3D mario game where you now can possess enemies and use their abilities is just so new and intriging that I can play this game for hours without getting bored.
With so many enemies to control, it has an unprecedented number of ways to interact with the world. The game play is so polished that I would go so far as to say this should be the new industry standard for 3D Platformers. It's seriously that good.
The music is fantastic for the most part, some new stuff with nostalgic music thrown in. The addition of lyrics to the main songs of the game is something I didn't know I wanted until I heard it. It just gives you a happy feeling.
Visuals are amazing, but can be a little jarring seeing normal human beings tower over Mario himself. It was great to see the variety of environments with so much attention to detail. These worlds are fairly big too, you can spend hours on each one just searching for collectibles. Every inch of the world though is brimming with detail and charm.
Overall, this game is amazing, and I've never had so much fun with Mario since the Nintendo 64 era. I would be more than happy if this paves the way for the future of, not just this franchise, but the genre as a whole.
