Super Mario Odyssey

Postby Retrology » July 23rd, 2019, 4:22 pm

Finally got this game and have been playing it on vacation. I'm more than halfway in the main story and good lord this game is amazing. To be honest it has one of the best first impressions I've ever seen from a game, and it makes me feel like a kid again exploring everything it has to offer.

Simply put, it reminds me of Mario 64 and Mario World on the SNES for how fun it is to explore and find secrets. I know some people aren't as high on it as I am but it honestly might be the best Mario game I've ever played. This and BOTW have made me want to invest in more of the Switch library to see what it has to offer, and it's near impossible for me to put down.

Odyssey was awesome. My one complaint though is that it did not challenge enough, particularly boss battles. I am sure finding all the moons is hard but, like Breath of the Wild finding Korock Seeds, the experience is not overly gratifying. There were some classic "only Nintendo could do this" moments, that boss on the desert level where you have to box his face in was an absolute hoot. Odyssey is right up there with Galaxy and Mario 64 and I do not think the game is overated - it is good clean fun.

Great game, although I don't like the motion controls.
