In my opinion, the best Mario has ever been. The endless creativity of this game will keep you shocked from the time you press play to the roll of the credits to that 999th moon. The excess of collectables keeps the game chugging with progression, discovery, and allows you to see every detail these lands have to show you. The music is swelling, the lands are charming, and Mario controls better than he ever has. This game one of the greatest successes from Nintendo and will be looked back to compare future titles.
