Super Mario Odyssey review
by mentalmynx

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Playtime: Played for 15 hours or more

Completion Date: May 25, 2021

Popular Review: "Each kingdom is absolutely packed with charm, clever objectives, gorgeous visuals, a stellar soundtrack, and an immense variety of ways to have fun. One moon would have me leaping across tiny platforms with pinpoint precision, and the next would have me cheering up a businessperson by dressing like a clown. At no point did I feel like I was checking boxes just to up my completion percentage. Even now that I've collected every moon and purple coin in the game, I still want to play more of it. It’s one of the most joyous and entertaining gaming experiences I’ve had in a long time, and it stands tall among the all-time great Mario games." - Giant Bomb

My Review: A masterpiece! The one of the best games of this decade so far. It's the successor of Mario 64, and it beats the predecessor by far. Super Mario Odyssey is the best 3D platform-adventure ever created. If you don't own a Nintendo Switch, now is the time to get one.

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.
Decent to a strong 9.
10/10 - Yes.

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%

+ 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
