It’s-a me, SindrElf!

This weekend, me and my girlfriend finished Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch she got me for Christmas.

Well, finished is not quite accurate, as there’s a huge amount of extra content and collectables available once you finish the game. Along with all the collectables we did not find from earlier in the game, this will take us a looong time to actually finish completely.

 

I do however feel like I have experienced enough of the game to share my opinions on it here, while also giving it a glowing recommendation.

This game is just pure light-hearted fun, and a wonderful celebration of the Mario brand and legacy.

 

It is jam-packed with references and easter-eggs.

Some of our favorite parts were going into traditional 2D-levels in the geometry of the 3D world. You can see a Mario-stage on the side of a building, then go two-dimensional and enter the stage, seeing yourself as a moving piece of pixel-art on the wall.

 

The game is also super cute!

You main ability in this game is to take over control of enemies, making them sport Mario’s iconic red M-hat and his mustache to indicate that their brain is being hijacked by an Italian plumber.

Seeing a behatted moustached little mushroom bouncing around at your command is incredible adorable.

 

If you have ever liked Mario, and have not played Odyssey yet, get yourself a Switch.

It is so worth it!

    • Not yet, Odyssey was our first game on the Switch, but I’m pretty sure that Zelda will be the next one 😀
      I’ve heard a lot of good things.

      • You’ll love it, best Zelda in a long time and an epic adventure.
        Mario Kart 8 Deluxe would be my recommendation for your third game, really fun and a good laugh online.

        • It will be my first Zelda game 🙂

          MK8D will be fun 😀
          I just have to buy another controller, so that we can play split-screen.

  2. Mario Odyssey is awesome. The main single player campaign is both epic and really has the cutest and funniest ending, but the end game I where it’s at. The appeal to find all the moons is great and will really test you. It’s also cool how the worlds changes subtely when you’re done making it feel the game is still going on in a way.

    And to 2nd the other comment, BOTW is one of my favourite switch games, and favourite games of all time, highly recommend it.

    • Getting all the moons are really fun 🙂
      I think we had about 75% of them when we finished the story, but the ones that are left are the really hard ones!

      I’m getting really hyped for BOTW! 😀
