    Users complaining about the game being expensive are either ignorant or forgetting every top AAA developed title in video games are the expensive ones, since the NES days. Have actually gone down in price, to boot.

    Hes right, Super Mario Bros 3 still cost a whopping £39.99p and that was probably about 27 years ago! £39.99p back then was a hell of a lot of money that would be worth about say £80 - 90 pounds now.., if not more. The NES console itself when first released was a luxury item only to be bought for any family and mainly only people with mega money bought one at the time you would be looking near into the thousand pound mark at this day an age in price, my elder brother lucky enough won one in a competition in the Daily Express newspaper along with a television so for us it was a huge win and would of been for anyone.

    Also to have a new game bought for the nes, it wasn't just a case of nowadays of just going on the net finding a good price and ordering it a nes game was a major Christmas present given to you and my god that's if you are lucky enough to even get one for Christmas and if you did you made sure you showed your parents some serious respect when opening it!

    ehh...probably could be because of the way you could jump into worlds, but for me it lacked the feel of super Mario 64. This seems to have brought that back.

    I wish they did more with the plot than "save Peach". The platforming is fine, but these games lack substance when the cause for adventure is the same shit over and over. I liked Super Mario Sunshine and it's little lore around the island.

    I don't like the game at all, it doesn't feel like Mario or Nintendo univers. If you didn't see that Mario is the character that you're playing with you'd never say it's a Mario game. It looks likes any other Indie platformer out there, has so much diverse things thrown in that are just unfitting with each other and stick out. I know that Nintendo is trying to make the game/world seem as it's huge just coz it has so many bits and pieces that last a minute or two during the game, but I don't like it. The only real Mario 3d univers game that makes sense and plays fantastically, a true classic, it's Mario galaxy for wii.

    Oh I don't want to start on the graphics of odyssey, it's horrible, textures are horrible and recycled. Look at those blunt concrete textures in the city and clothing /modelling of the people ://

    If anything, Galaxy was much more linear and didn’t feen that much more Mario-y than Odyssey given the new worlds, mechanics and enemies. And saying Galaxy graphics look better than Odyssey graphics is straight-up bullshit. Unless you play Galaxy in Dolphin, it is 480p or even 480i without a component cable.

    Lol what. Have you ever played a Mario game? They're literally all like this...varied worlds and levels within those worlds. New Donk City is the only environment type we haven't seen in Mario before, with the exception of the original Donkey Kong. Other than that all the staples are there, and the enemies are mostly the same. At this point there's nowhere you can send Mario to make him truly feel out of place, because Mario games have been set everywhere and then some.

    It does look promising but I can't help but feel like mario has become a tool for Nintendo to try out every new gimmick on for a very long time. This game looks like the least mario of all mainstream mario games (even less than sunshine). Why is there a city with real people, I can't get over that, and Pauline being the mayor seems ridiculous, why doesn't it take place in toad town or koopa village or something more central to the mario series, why is there a bloody t rex in it? It seems more like a mario theme park world than the actual mushroom kingdom. The humans are even proportioned differently to mario and the other "mario like humans", yoshis existing beside actual dinosaurs, how does my brain process that?

    I know I'm being completely biased by nostalgia here, I know mario has always been changing, but I often wish there was a more stable concept of mario's world.

    Every Nintendo franchise has been used as an excuse to try out new ideas over the years. None more than Mario, though, and that should go without saying. He's played every sport, been a doctor, an animal trainer, held parties, beat the living shit out of people in SSB, etc. Mario has been everything and everywhere, this is far from his first time outside of the Mushroom Kingdom. Though Mario x Rabbids takes place there if you're really yearning for a return.

    Why is there a city with real people?

    They aren't necessarily real people, Game Theory has an interesting video about this. The thought is that they were inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom, but living in New Donk City there's a diet made up primarily of Donkey Kong's power bananas. This causes them to grow much taller than they would've been otherwise. Even if this isn't what Nintendo was going for, Mario has always included real-life themes and it's stylized to make you forget about them.

    It seems more like a mario theme park world than the actual mushroom kingdom.

    Because it's not the Mushroom Kingdom, it's Mario traveling all over the "Earth" that the Mushroom Kingdom exists on. Just like both Galaxy and Sunshine were outside the Mushroom Kingdom.

    Why, its awesome nintendo brings something 'new' instead all of those remakes and little changes. Sometimes you need to get out of your comfort zone and embrace new things.

    Stupid, maybe. After all, that's a Mario game. Stupid and hideous, what? Plus 3D games didn't exist in 1990 so...
