The best Mario game I've played so far

Great game. I'm always down for a Mario title and this one delivers with sharp controls and plenty of stars(?) to keep you hunting for all of 'em. I only wish that there was some type of DLC to lengthen mainline game play.

I used to think this game was okay. But after replaying I think it's absolutely brilliant.

This is maybe my fifth playthrough or so of Odyssey. After playing a couple 2D Marios and telling everyone that Pikmin 4 felt just like a collectathon, I felt like it was right to return to the biggest Mario collectathon.
I still greatly enjoy it but my ability to wring surprise out of this game has dwindled significantly. That's fine, in fact its impressive how much fun I've had after this many plays, but especially after playing Pikmin, I am laser focused on collecting as much as I can in as little time since my familiarity with the game is pretty high.
After some time, something that stood out to me was how much of this game is minigames. That isn't a serious dock on the game, especially because they are rock solid minigames, but so often the time with a capture is either just a quick instrumental object (think power lines or the stanchions in Metro) or in much more contained mini-set pieces. It's a bit of a let down that you rarely have a capture recontextualize navigating a larger space that Mario also navigates or has already navigated. While at this point its clear we are not getting an Odyssey 2, it would have been really nice to have that potential get explored.
This is still one of the the best, most well refined 3D platformers to ever exist with (in my opinion) not nearly as much bloat as this could've had, but I feel like there's still the slightest room for it to have been a more interesting game too.

Simply one of the most fun games of all time. Infinite replay-ability, and the best mario game.

This game is literally 3d platforming perfection, the best way i can describe is just pure joy and fun. The many open diverse colorful worlds have so much variety that i can never get bored of it. the movement and traversal is so fluid and smooth and the game was the thing that really made me a nintendo fan in the first place.
