Just finished the main story yesterday, and I gotta say I didnt love it. Hear me out, I LOVE Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Super Mario 3D World was great, but odyssey just didnt hit the buttons for me. It seemed way way too easy, like oh look behind this bush, do a ground pound and get a star. I definitely prefer the level progression in order to get the star at the end like in Galaxy.
I kept waiting for it to get hard or challenging but those moments were few and far between. I know there are tonnes of stars so I cant judge it completely until I get them all (I have just over 200 I think) but since I have seen the credits roll that should be a pretty good indicator of what the game is.
I did love the possession mechanic, that was super fun. Anyone else feel the same as me?
