A Review of Super Mario Odyssey

We’re back and with exciting Mario news!

Need new ideas for children’s parties? With the Super Mario Odyssey release, no need to look any further! It’s too much fun to put it down! What is this game about you ask? Is it Princess Peach? Yup, you guessed it! Princess Peach managed to get nabbed again! With each stage, you make your way through mazes and new opponents. We had a ton of fun “researching” this game! You can find it on Amazon, Ebay, Best Buy, and GameStop!

Remember to explore the other challenges that could be hidden at these levels. This game has some similarities to the original Mario games but have way more mini levels! Even though there are a bunch of hidden challenges, one of the hardest parts of this game is its non-stop madness! Make sure to check out this game when looking for new birthday games!


Mario got a new companion in this installment: Cappy. With the help of Cappy, you can turn into all kinds of animals and even the walking bombs! Can you turn into a giant stack of Goombas? YUP!

Triple Jumping

Do you remember when double jumping was a revolutionary thing? We do too which is why we are excited to play this new game which features a triple jump!

Have a different gameplay style?

With this game, you can play your way! Jump on every Goomba you see or avoid all the walking bombs, it’s up to you! If you liked the Zelda games, then you’ll love this one with your ability to explore different stages! We were also happy with this Assassins Creed like gameplay style. It also reminds us of the old Spiderman games as Mario roams through the city bouncing on cars and people’s heads.

Finished the game?

There are alternate endings! With 120 “Moons” which are pretty much the equivalent of harder to collect coins, you can beat the game but if you collect 500 Moons, you get to experience the real ending! Keep in mind, 500 is a lot of Moons when the game only has 830 of them!

Generally, when you beat a game, it gets dull. Well not with this one! When you beat this game, the challenges get even harder! This game introducing all new ideas and we love them! They incorporate these ideas intuitively and with child gameplay in mind. In this game, you can collect a bundle of Moons and it is a bundle of fun.
