10/10, Critical Hit
-The Mario DNA shines through to the surface, and I sensed a glimmer of Splatoon, a touch of Pikmin, a hint of Metroid and even fragment of Zelda exploring some of the intriguing kingdoms scattered around the planet.
-Playing dress ups looks the coolest when Mario reverts into his 8-bit self by jumping into a warp pipe and being sucked into a 2D segment reminiscent of Link slipping into a wall in Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
How these 2D segments combine to form parts of larger 3D platforming stages is pure genius; I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face.
-Every element gelled so well that I was simply enraptured by the beauty of the whole experience.
-Super Mario Odyssey is a delight from start to finish.
