What I like:
I really enjoy finding all of the fun little easter eggs scattered everywhere and anywhere throughout the vast array of kingdoms Mario can explore.
The new mechanic of Mario throwing his cap and capturing enemies to gain their powers is a nice little addition to Mario. I am a big fan of Kirby, and it doesn't seem like we're going to get an open world Kirby game for Switch, at least not soon. So this is kind of a nice compromise. Mario with a just a hint of Kirby. Turning into a T-Rex is just as fun as the trailers made it look.
Although there isn't as much to be seen from your old favorites like the Shy Guys, Koopas, etc. I really enjoy some of the new NPC's. I especially like the skeleton heads (Dia de Los Muertos) type characters in Toastarena and the Robots of the Wooded Kingdom. Some of the great iconic moments of this game include these NPCs, like finding yourself in a secret room rocking out on your guitar with them.
The two player is really interesting. At first glance, having one player control Mario, and the other control Cappy seems like you'd have some much watered down gameplay, but that isn't necessarily the case. Cappy is able to move around freely as your player 2 and can jump and explore and even ground pound like Mario. To be honest, if anything, Mario feels a little crippled in the 2 player without being able to freely use Cappy. However, this is made up for somewhat by the fact that some new jumping possibilities exist when you play cooperatively with your player 2 controlling Cappy. It emphasizes that Cappy is a living being and an integral part of the story, but I still miss Luigi... I mean as a little brother it was demoralizing to have to play as Luigi...now little bros get to be a hat...
What I dislike:
Earlier, I applauded the plethora of Easter Eggs. They are a blessing and a curse. They are very different games, but Odyssey will continue to inevitably draw comparisons to Breath of the Wild. While the Easter Eggs in Breath of the Wild made the journey that much more exciting and full-bodied, the Easter Eggs in Odyssey seem like they ARE mostly the objective. The story line is fairly weak so far, so the game makers had to compensate for that by adding a seemingly endless number of collectibles. Every stage is formulaic. Bowser took whatever random wedding thing, you have to get it back...blah blah.
Aside from that, the power moons feel really inconsistent. You sometimes get them for just ground pounding a sand dune, but sometimes you have to spend a half hour and a dozen deaths swearing at your TV in order to obtain these glittery lunar prizes.
The motion controls are really annoying. I know lots of people have said it, but it needs to be mentioned. The game is mostly playable without getting too crazy with your motion controls, but more than a few times, I've found myself losing HP or even dying because I couldn't get Cappy to do what I wanted. There are very few ways in which they enhance gameplay, like shaking the controller upside down to climb faster...but that really just feels unnecessary. There are a lot of people who swear by the motion controls on other games like Splatoon 2, and I accept that. Just offer gameplay that is equally as robust without them. There are puzzles and secret areas that are essentially impossible without motion controls so the game's statement that motion controls aren't necessary is false.
Another gripe that I have is that there is an endless amount of new costumes and combinations to play with, but they are essentially just skins. All costumes do the same thing and do not affect game play in any way that I've seen so far. That's somewhat disappointing, and I think it's a missed opportunity to add some more depth to the gameplay.
Overall, I think the game is really solid, but not perfect. It has some of the innovative gameplay of Mario 64, some of the charm of Paper Mario, and a bit of a twist in the mechanics like Sunshine, but honestly, it doesn't do any of those things quite as well which is why I gave it 4 stars. Anybody rating the game lower than a 3 is probably a troll. Despite its shortcomings, it's still a really great solid game that will give you lots of hours of exciting gameplay.
Edit: having completed the game (current moon total 505), I can say this game is really a triumph for Mario. Nothing has changed from what I wrote above but some of the post game and final worlds really sold me. The game gets beautifully nostalgic at the end. You won't regret buying it.
*Mild Spoilers* Your main objective is to chase Bowser across the globe on the “Odyssey,” with the help of a shape-shifting ghost hat that enables you to fight and interact with the worlds. All worlds vary in size, enemies, and friendlies, and each come with a helpful guide map, reminiscent of a tourist pamphlet.
Overall, gameplay has been enjoyable. Similar to Zelda there is much to explore and discover, keeping players engaged. Graphics are excellent for the Switch and persist fairly well when expanded for the tv. The only cons I’ve noted thus far is it is possible to get stuck from time to time when actions or ways to engage with the environment haven’t been made readily available. That aside, learning all the characters you have the ability to possess, and all their unique abilities, is just one of the many fun discoveries about this game!
Fully recommend, and great for all ages!
If you have children, this game would be a no brainer. There isn't any real difficulty aside from a level or two that aren't even necessary to complete the game. The entire game is about collecting moons -- and the plus side? -- It has moons lying literally all over the place (just walk right up to 15 of them at the beginning of the level, no problem). There are a few large worlds that are simply saturated with moons for your child's hunting delight.
Speaking of completing the game, it doesn't take over 20? (fewer?) hours. Then, the rest of the game is dedicated to very, very, (did I mention very?) tedious moon collecting - a majority of which consist of "ground pound this area and you'll get a moon".
I don't know -- I don't know what I was expecting, I guess. I loved Super Mario 64. Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 were fantastic. Even Super Mario 3D World was a blast to play through with my wife. You had incentive to collect everything and the replay value after the game was over was great.
I lied to myself initially -- thinking I was having fun with this game. Once I collected 500 moons and realized that was about it (I don't care about collecting hats, shirts, stickers, etc), I didn't really feel like picking up the game and playing the same handful of worlds again just to try and find every last moon. Nothing was different than my first play through really, anyway.
Ultimately, I put in about 25 hours total (not terrible). I was completely bummed that the game turned into a giant tedious easter egg hunt of the same levels and I simply became bored.
The controls were great, and I get Nintendo wanted to try a new approach (a hat that lets you take control of another entity) -- it just didn't gel with me. What's weirder than finding a giant realistic T-Rex in middle of a Mario game? Oh, probably turning into a giant Christmas tree.
At the end of the day, it's still a Mario game. People are going to instantly give Mario games 5 stars. That's fine! However, after having played almost every Mario game out there, this is truly the first one where I felt very underwhelmed, and even confused at times.
I plan to trade this game in in the near future. :/
