Super Mario Odyssey review
Exceptional
by tmello

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.

The most expressive jump in all of gaming
Super Mario Odyssey is a pretty good game. It’s not my favorite 3D Mario game by any means, it can get really annoying at times, and needed control techniques take a bit of learning, but It’s a lot of fun, with tons to explore and collect. 

My Score: 75%
HOLY SHIT

+ Extremely well-designed sandbox style kingdoms
+ Mario feels amazing to control
+ Cappy's transformations are a fresh new spin
+ Great length and excellent replay opportunity

- Many moons feel superfluous and unearned
- Boring traditional mario story again
Possibly the best Mario game Nintendo have made. Odyssey is a joy to play, and took me into a world of colour and magic - what Nintendo does best. I can't help but smile when I think about my time with this game.

I had my doubts, but bought Super Mario Odyssey (and a Switch) on the day of release. Simply put, I love this game. Super Mario Odyssey is like someone took Disneyland and jam-packed it into a game. It's great, but I want more. I hope there's some kind of DLC or something.
I thought of Mario as a silly character. Now i don’t. What a smart, fun and kind game made with so much care and attention to details. First Nintendo game that i have completed 🏆.
