Super Mario Odyssey gets near-perfect score (39/40) from Famitsu

Good to see Famitsu showing some spine and not folding to Nintendo and giving it a perfect score like Edge.

Of course it's all moot when their magazine is made from dead trees.

I'll admit, this list is actually more intriguing than their perfect score list. Mario 64 also got a 39/10 o_O
Lol@ the first page. 50 people all making the exact same joke.
lol Gaf is a gaffe sometimes. Even this page has that same sarcasm (so it's really about 250 posts of the same joke). I feel like if the initial posts are jokes...then you see followers post similar content. If the first posts have something of substance then you'll see others follow that route.

This one got me.

Super Mario Oddisey will win GOTY everywhere

At least Persona 5 beat it on this

Mario getting a high score?
I'm shocked!

It'll get in the high 90s as to be expected but will eventually be overrated like BotW.
Not played the game yet but knows at what point the game is overrated. Keep up the good
console war
It's always a little bit odd when one publication has its review out so far in advance of every other. It cheapens the
perfect score because we can't help but wonder if it's all above board, or if secret deals were struck behind the scenes.
Damn that’s awesome. Not surprised though. Mario’s almost always a sure thing quality-wise.

I feel like the more creative license developers have with Mario, the better the result. This game seems crammed with some insane ideas so no doubt it’ll be a classic.

That said, nitpicking about reviews is the funniest trend around here. It’s an opinion. Theirs is no more relevant than yours; they just have a “publish” button.

Nobody ruins my family vacation but me...and maybe the boy!
Not gonna lie, I expected a perfect score from Famitsu. That's not a slight on the game, but rather the publication itself since Famitsu seems to be the loosest of all publications when it comes to giving out perfect scores.
I just realized they gave final fantasy XIII-2 a perfect score lol
I mean, XIII-2 was by far the best of the 3. Story was engaging, villain was great, music was beautiful, and replayability was high with the monster capturing, modifying and DLC bosses. Worthy of a 40/40? Nah, but it's better than a lot of games.
Is how Mario rolls.

in most games the rolls are supposed to have bit of a delay after momentum so that they don't replace the running command.

I hope that gets balanced out,
I would not enjoy speed runs that much , if mario is rolling half of the time :(
I honestly question why Famitsu score threads aren’t banned given the publication is a joke, everyone knows it’s a joke, and they inevitably are around 80% made up of people making fun of this fact
