It's a fun game, but I'm not really hooked on it. Maybe I'm too busy with Call of Duty and MLB: The Show, but I'm not into this the way I was with previous Mario games.

I don't have a switch, so I can't give too much of an opinion, however, I have played a little of it when my cousin bought it. I don't know why I'm not as excited as I would be about a new Mario game, but I'm just not for some reason. Of course, that may change if and when I play more of it.

I think the new hat mechanic is one reason I'm not super excited for the game. I'm not all that crazy about controlling a fish with a Mario hat on.

Yeah, there’s quite a few Switch games I’d love to try, but SMO hasn’t really been one of them. I loved 64, but 3D platformers arent really my thing.

I didn’t have a problem with the dark side challenges, but the volleyball is giving me fits. Highest I made it to is 83 and it’s just so agonizing to redo it again and again. And I read people were having trouble with the jump rope which I beat on my second try.

I dropped the ball at 99. I was devastated, but tried it again a couple days later. It's easier to just use the hat. The jump rope was impossible for me, so I used the gltich to pass it. I love cheating, sometimes.
