Review: Super Mario Odyssey

I’ve spent a lot of time over the last couple of weeks trying to reconcile what is wrong with me. Have I been unwell without realising it or is it possible that I simply don’t have a soul? Whatever the reason, after trying my best I still don’t love Super Mario Odyssey and I might be the only person in existence who feels this way.

Super Mario Odyssey is easily one of the most anticipated Switch titles this year and sees a return to 3D Mario gameplay which we haven’t really seen since the Galaxy series. Boasting open worlds filled with secrets and collectibles, Odyssey takes us back even further with many relating it to Sunshine and others even calling it the first true Mario 64 successor. It’s universally loved for its exploration and innovative gameplay receiving perfect scores across many reviews and I’m still, at best, whelmed.
