Top positive review
Seemingly endless fun for all ages
Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2019
I finished this game a few weeks ago, and I've been pondering what I should write in review. When I say I "finished" it, I mean I FINISHED it. Made it past every single one of the "endings," somehow. At some points, I wanted to rip my hair out in frustration. At others, I really just enjoyed climbing buildings and exploring what the Mario world has to offer (I'll tell you right now that it's a lot. There's a lot). This game occupied me for several weeks, yet somehow I never got bored. I debated even buying this game at first because some people (obviously more experienced gamers than I am) thought it was much too simple. However, i never got over the joy and utter satisfaction of getting a moon that I thought I would never see. Of course, if you just play through the main storyline, you'll be done in a few days. That's to be expected. But Nintendo has put several endings in the game, each significantly more difficult to achieve than the last. I finally finished the entire game weeks after I bought it and let me tell you, I have never felt such satisfaction. I thought I would genuinely have a heart attack trying to get some of those moons. Moral of the story, it's great for all ages and skill levels. A 7-year old could finish the main storyline and never touch it again and probably be content. But *anyone* has the option to keep playing for muuuuuch longer past that. Not the best for multiplayer, but it's still a fun time if someone wants to half-heartedly be a companion to player one. If you're debating getting this game, I say just get it. You'll most likely find something to love about it because of how open-ended everything is.
