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

Mar 12, 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!

Super Mario odyssey was beloved by almost everyone when it launched, and I was one of them. But how does it fare almost 3 years later? Surprisingly, not the best. While the game still is great, on my third playthrough now, the magic wears off and the flaws start to emerge. The major one is that the game is short, really short, without completing any optional quests, you could complete the main game in a afternoon. The game itself doesn’t even have a ton of real content, while the content is does have is great, most of the game is just padded with forced collectibles. Exploration is really fun, but again, the worlds you are visiting are fairly small, which would be fine, but theirs only 20 of them, and a few of them are just glorified boss arenas. with little to actually do in any of them, aside from a small puzzle or two. Now, this game isn’t bad at all, it still has plenty of that Nintendo charm, and Mario’s move set is the best it’s ever been, but almost all of my enjoyment came from my first playthrough, finding all the hidden secrets and collectibles and trying to master Mario’s abilities, as well as the captures. But on my second and third playthrough I found the game was pretty shallow, and the captures, one of the main focuses of the game, were pretty uninteresting once you’ve used them a couple times, and I feel they should have been a little more fleshed out. Rant aside, I’d still recommend this game to any Mario fans, but don’t expect this to be an all time classic.

I'm not from the old schools who played the DS or even older, but I did knew Mario, always liked the idea of taking a journey on a 2D world passing levels and unleashing the raging person inside me after I lose a level, but this one is not 2D its 3D and thats amazing, its still Mario style and its still funny and colorful but its in a whole another level.

Fantastically fun game and perfect introduction to the Switch. Instant classic. First 5 hours of playing I didn’t stop smiling. It’s bursting with creativity and joyful mechanics and level design. Beautiful graphics and excellent music. Cappy is a welcome addition to the Mario world, giving Mario more movement options and adding the fun addition of “possessing” a fun variety of enemies & creatures. Once I started playing I didn’t stop for the full 15hr main story. Each level is so fun and interesting that I was always compelled to see what the next environment was, in addition to the new creatures I could play as and the new outfits I could collect. It really does feel like the ultimate spiritual sequel to Mario 64. The ending is also a surprise and a blast.

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.

The best Mario game in years, this masterpiece is extremely fun and extremely vast. The game is a collect-a-thon, in a similar style to Banjo Kazooie and SM64, and they improved on it to an incredible extent, with breathtaking environments, fun puzzles, and cool homages to the older days of the franchise. I adore this game and am so happy I got it as a Christmas gift. The customer is one and the developers are many, as shown by this incredible game made by the famous and infamous Nintendo. The game is highly enjoyable overall and the work put into it is fascinating.

A really fun game and definitely one of the best Mario-games ever made, if not even the best. The only slight minuses were that it’s a tad short and it lacks a WELL-WORKING co-op-mode. Despite these minor issues one of the most fun and innovative games I have ever played.

It’s as fun as you’d expect a Super Mario game. The game is beyond visually stimulating, and some of the challenges are so immersive they will have you wondering where all your time went.

This game is one the reasons that I traded in my Ps4 for a Nintendo Switch, it's not only one of the best Switch games it's also the best Super Mario game that has ever been made too.

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.

Super Mario Odyssey is a welcome return to the 3D Platformer genre that the franchise had already defined in the 90s with the release of Super Mario 64. This entry knows exactly where to pull inspiration from while also experimenting with ways to keep the game constantly fresh and engaging with its possession mechanic.

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.

I simply loved this game

I like this game a lot and it has a lot of good moments. The story is pretty cool but the most fun is exploring the kingdoms on your own and seeing everything. It is even cool to have a balloon battle, where you can find other people's balloons for coins and even put your own balloon in a good hiding spot.
