This is the highest score for a 3D Mario game.

Of course not. You simply perform minor invasive surgery of one reviewer’s limbic system so they cannot retain the memory of ever playing a video game before.

For the other three, you just make sure they know their place and stay in line.

It’s quite simple.

BotW can count as a WiiU score. We haven't reached the peak of Switch just yet.

I am appalled by this review. Cannot believe the really poor non perfect score that will be really bad for sales. I am sure Amazon and most sites are facing unprecedented traffic due to the cancellation requests. Mario has traditionally done and played well on Nintendo consoles. With its due return to a Nintendo console, this is really bad news. Really poor showing from the developers and undermining all our expectations.

Could it be problems with the team? Maybe a morale issue? Or leadership/management problems, even superiors predating on juniors? Nintendo has to come clean on this. Or perhaps, the lack of loot boxes as an option for richer players to save on time and progress faster is a fatal flaw which they need to rectify on future games. They have to realise life is never fair. Or it will be the end of the Mario bloodline. It will probably sell 1% compared to all mainline Mario games in the UK alone.

I expected maturish ond open world concept Mario to meet with doom and gloom and there.. the review has proven it that 2D Mario with a single jump button or tap to jump (easily adapted to mobiles with IAPs to unlock levels). There is also a lack of option to choose a gender or skin color (to alter difficulty) - cmon this has to be an option in every game, to play as a female or black. I also heard from a friend of a friend wjo works in Nintendo that the cartridge scratches itself when inserted into the Switch's slot. The thumbnail on the homescren is also of a reddish tinted hue, which is glaringly wrong. Definitely deserves its poor review score from Fatmitsu.

This is not just a problem with Mario Odyssey but Nintendo and Mario as a whole.

of course

I guess most media outlets don't have the time to let all their staff review one game.

yeah,it's probably way too specific and time consuming to be done on a regular basis, but i would actually give a shit about reviews again if someone starts doing this...especially since most of the time my taste doesn't allign at all with the average review.

You can't even play against Real Madrid in Super Mario Odyssey (at least as far as I'm aware - I guess it had to get that extra 2 points from somewhere)

That's okay, after all it's just an SP game with tacked-on 2P functionality. No Mario game without 4-player coop deserves a perfect score.

So it might be the best as 40/40 scores are all marketing shill. So 39/40 means it's actually top dog.

You also might as well nix the guy who hates the games like why is he even reviewing games. It would be a total waste, they could have their own channel instead and it would be awesome. You could hire my dad and call it angryoldmanreviewsvideogames and he would hate everything and talk about aspects of games in terms of "this is how they get you"

At least it seems to be on par with Mario 64. Both games got a 10/10 from EDGE and a 39/40 from Famitsu.
