Fun for the Family

5.0 out of 5.0 by J. Bradford on October 27, 2017
My review is from the "father of a toddler" perspective. For those of you who have a child on the younger side, and you still enjoy Mario, don't hesitate to buy this game! My son can sit and watch this as if it is a cartoon and remains entertained the entire time. Sometimes he will say "make Mario do this" and is excited when it happens on screen. As someone who is a bit older but still enjoys games, it is a treat to find a game that entertains my son while I play.
Honestly you need this game

5.0 out of 5.0 by TheCyberQuake on November 2, 2017
Honestly this is my favorite console title to date. Very few games make me want to sit and play for hours on end. Even with Breath of the Wild, I haven't beaten it and can't get myself to play for extended periods of time.
But this game is glorious.
I'll leave this review spoiler free for the sake of those looking into purchasing this awesome title.
It took me about 4 days to beat the main story. This included getting 8 hours of sleep and a work/school schedule. But that was using all of my free time playing this fantastic game. And even after that, there is still a LOT to do after the main story, so I've been playing it still.
This is a console quality mario game. In my opinion it's the best 3d open-world mario title to date. Mario 64 will always have that nostaliga spot for me, but this is the new winner in my eyes. Not only because of the gameplay, but with the nature of the switch it's also a portable title. I played this while waiting at campus for a class to start. Almost was late to class because I lost track of time.
And the mechanics are great. Even after beating the main story, I find myself learning new advanced moves that make previously tall walls easy to get over.
The music is also good. Not all of it is super memorable, but there are several songs in there that I would pay to have downloaded on my phone.
I highly recommend anyone who is even remotely considering this game to pick it up. I wasn't even super excited to get it, but decided to give it a go and now it's my new gaming addiction.
Nintendo hits a real homer with this Odyssey

5.0 out of 5.0 by Cristopher Boyer on December 6, 2017
While it may sound backhanded to say that this is the best Mario game since Galaxy, it's not intended as such. Odyssey is spectacular. I've been playing Mario games since the very beginning, so I like to think I know a thing or two about them. Super Mario Odyssey may well be the best 3D Mario game ever made, and it's in my personal top 3 Mario games of all time.

As you might've seen advertised, the big new feature is Mario's sentient hat companion Cappy, who lets him possess many of the denizens of the various kingdoms you visit in this adventure. While the highlight of many Super Mario games throughout the years has always been the various suits and power-ups players can get their hands on, being able to outright become many of the creatures you come across is a twist on that formula that lets players do all kinds of new and sometimes unexpected things.

While the game is - as expected - family friendly, it provides layers of challenges for players of all ages. Some of the (optional) tasks in the game are outright hair-tearing, for only the most skilled players, but that's part of what achievement is all about! However, while the game is designed to appeal to everyone, Nintendo took the time to add some extra nods to long-time fans, not only in the worlds and the critters/characters you happen across, but through setpieces and a spectacular mid-game musical number that old-timers like me have to appreciate.

If you have a Switch, get this game. If you don't have a Switch, get one, and then get this game. Whether you're a new Mario fan or an old one, this is the definitive 3D Super Mario experience.
Simply put, this is the best Mario game ever made!

I've been playing Mario games since the original was released 34 years ago. This is the best Mario game I have ever played. It is so astonishing, that is difficult to put into words. Although the Nintendo Switch is not as technically powerful as its competitors in Sony's PlayStation Pro and Xbox One's new iteration in X. The graphics are strikingly amazing, with colors so beautiful you just want to toggle the right analog stick to look around. The controls are perfectly intuitive and responsive. The sound is so engrossing, that it appreciably enhances the game This game just eviscerated any and all of the competition in the platforming market, and any other genre for that matter. There is a reason why this has an aggregate score of 97%. Even though it is relatively easy to "beat" the game, to complete it is another matter. I don't want to spoil anything, but the final encounter is a culmination of different gauntlets that will challenge even veteran game players. This is a must have video game.
Nintendo has crafted a polished, fun, and interesting action adventure treat for the fans!

5.0 out of 5.0 by Christopher Barrett on October 30, 2017
Nintendo has gone back to what made Super Mario 64 a great game and then took it to the next level. Forgotten are the sub-par Mario games in between.

I have spent only a few hours with the game, but I already have a feel for this one. First off, it is pretty easy. You lose coins when you 'die', and coins are literally everywhere. Seriously, the ground must be made of coins, they're that easy to find. But the puzzles are luckily pretty interesting. Many result in discovery of a moon piece. Others result in; you guessed it; coins. The maps are larger and you can warp to certain saved locations.

The one drawback is that Nintendo insists on making use of the joycons. I really hate them. Especially since I play with them attached to the unit while my wife plays PS4. But I have advanced quite a bit in the game even without using the extra motion control features. I think they make a few things easier, but I haven't felt like I couldn't accomplish something because I wasn't using them.

One nice feature is that the collecting of a moon doesn't take you out of the map (like collecting a star in Mario 64). So you can collect several each time through and not interrupt the action. You also then don't have partially completed puzzles reset (like finding and planting seeds in the Desert town).

Bottom line is that Nintendo has given us 3 great First-Party games on the Switch (Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey). So it's been a good year for Nintendo fans that were fortunate enough to get a Switch (which I hear is easier now - I got mine on release day). That being said, I think Zelda is the better game by far, but that doesn't diminish the quality of this game - it's comparing apples to an entire apple orchard. Zelda is still the Switch game that is a MUST own. Mario Odyssey is a great game that is superbly polished - but it's still not what action adventure Mario games could be, but it's nearly there.
True, Genuine Inspiration

5.0 out of 5.0 by Harrison Whitebread on February 13, 2018
This is our first Switch game - my little sister and I have squeezed many hours of co-op as both Mario and Cappy, with many more to go. Such a creative game with such accessible puzzles for all ages, even adults. The music is so wonderful and the environments are spectacular. The controls couldn't be simpler and you know, playing with another person gives you more moves to do with Mario and Cappy. I cannot remember the last time I played a game where playing co-op gave you an advantage other than replacing a buggy AI with a human player. It makes so much sense! There's a true motivation to play with someone else - and not ONLINE.

I must say the graphics in Odyssey are gorgeous, far beyond anything out of PS4 or Xbox One. Seriously. It's colorful, vibrant, and deep. Rich hues supplant dullness, even when in areas portrayed to be mysterious or cold. It's just short of inducing synesthesia.

I'm so glad Nintendo is finally back! This is the way gaming is supposed to be - light, endlessly fun and inspiring! Too many games on the "Big Bad Consoles" are so dark or filled with such negativity - it brings you down without realizing it. Even the "fun" titles are just uninspired - they just lack character & development. This Odyssey is such a breath of fresh air - it makes me want to just JUMP UP and go get Breath of the Wild next. Actually, it makes me and my sister just excited about everything, even when we aren't playing the game. We're happier individuals for playing Odyssey, no joke.

Nintendo, you've nailed it with the Switch and brought back the joys of gaming to a faithful 90's kid while giving the up and coming younger generation the discovery of something that has been missing from gaming for over 20 years - true, genuine inspiration.
If you liked Mario 64, you're going to Love Odyssey!

5.0 out of 5.0 by Grumbo on January 19, 2018
This game has a lot of similarities from Mario 64. That's great news because I loved that game!

Bowser is back at it again with a white suit this time!

Mario and his newly donned friend cappy, set out on an adventure to rescue the princess!

Instead of collecting Stars, you now collect Moons.
Instead of jumping into paintings you use your Moon powered spaceship to fly to different worlds

And while it all feels similar there is so much that makes this game addicting and new. Every world you explore is rich in detail, with so many things to do that you are going to have a hard time completing everything! Any enemy without a hat on can now be controlled. Each enemy that you control has its own abilities and really helps create a dynamic world that allows you to explore, and accomplish the same goal multiple different ways.

What i really like is once the main story line is complete, there are still more worlds to discover and keep the game play going! This is a game that we will be playing for a long time to come!
TLDR; BUY IT IT'S AMAZZZZZZING!!!

5.0 out of 5.0 by A. Rekas on October 31, 2017
Another amazing Mario game that doesn't disappoint! I was skeptical about the game before buying, the idea of throwing a cap, visiting a city with other humans, possibly forced motion controls, etc, but I was proved wrong once again by Nintendo. I only play the game docked on the TV with the PRO controller, so I can't comment much on the handheld experience.

Gameplay is excellent, the game controls as it should, only the occasional issue with the camera positioning and I've had a couple frame rate issues in certain worlds. Huge variety of tasks in each world, fun mini-games that include global leader boards, taking control of enemies with the cap gives Mario near infinite capabilities throughout the game. Mario also has the capability to turn into a 2D side scroller during certain times in the game to give you that old Mario feeling once again, which is a great touch from Nintendo.

Graphics are excellent, I honestly don't need anything the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro produces when the gameplay is so engaging. The cartoonish looks remain from previous Mario games and still plays very well.

Music is great, classic Mario music and occasional music from the 2D side scrolling Mario's also give it an added dose of nostalgia.

Lasting appeal, the game is BIG. I was worried how long the game was, but when I read that there's over 900 Power Moons to collect, I was so excited to spend more time in these worlds. While I haven't finished the game, I plan to put a lot of hours into it.

While I can't say it's better the Zelda BOTW, it's clearly on it's level and that's saying a lot. Highly recommend buying this, it's 2nd best game of the year behind BOTW.
Love this game

5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazon Customer on December 18, 2017
Love this game. I've been craving for a true 3d open world mario game since sunshine and it feels great to have that craving satisfied. It doesn't feel as platforming heavy as sunshine or 64 but more focused on simple exploration.Don't worry however, there are still plenty of platforming levels and a few that are particularly difficult. A kid could still beat this game easily by just picking up the easy moons instead of the harder ones so the difficulty really depends on how you play it. A speedrun community has already popped up and started challenges like the no jump challenge or plain difficult stunts to pull off in game. Overall it's not very difficult a game aside from a few frustrating levels or if you play in a way meant to challenge yourself,but it is loads of fun discovering the new world's and enemit's to capture. If you love to explore and admire nice scenery you'll be sure to enjoy this game.
Beautiful, Perfect, Fun

5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris N on October 27, 2017
Quick review from a 35 year old that grew up with NES Mario. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching (and playing) the Super Mario franchise for just about 30 years as it evolved and innovated the platforming genre. Super Mario Odyssey is the next evolution of the series, and gamers of all ages owe it to themselves to play it! The game runs silky smooth, the visuals are crisp and beautiful, the soundtrack is pure Mario Bros. that captures wonderment and adventure, and the controls are polished, intuitive, and responsive to a T. I cannot praise the work Nintendo put into Super Mario Odyssey enough, I can only imagine the amount long hours and weekends they surely sacrificed to build this masterpiece, and for that I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

I'm through with gushing, time to play more Super Mario Odyssey! With Zelda Breath of the Wild , and Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo as back to perfect form, no denying it. May the Nintendo Switch live long and prosper!
