I have nothing but bored memories of this game
I feel like an idiot for playing it out instead of quitting and finishing SMG2 or Sunshine instead

with a year's distance i feel comfortable calling this my favorite mario game, though it's not way better than the other 3d ones, just enough better. it could definitely get galaxy 2'ed.

It also seems much easier (so far) than I remember previous Mario games being. None of the boss battles to date have been particularly taxing and most have been done on the first attempt.
what was the last Mario game that could be described as "difficult"? some of Sunshine's stuff was challenging but a lot of that was due to a wonky control scheme. I think Nintendo's philosophy is to make the main stuff easy and forgiving with some side challenges that are way harder

Any tips on how to get the cap jumps and other tricks figured out? It seems like the game would be so much more fun if I could do that stuff.

There was some Luigi stuff in Galaxy 1 that I remember was excruciatingly hard, and Tick Tock Clock from 64 too. Parts of Odyssey got there, Dark Side Of The Moon especially.

Sunshine was the only Mario I can think of that was really crazy difficult, and mostly in those subspace levels. But I also like easy Mario inherently, never liked the idea of Mario going masocore.

idk I honestly rate this game slightly lower than SMB2 with its endless towers of chains and climbing, I found it excruciatingly tedious
Zelda Switch was my favourite in the series though, I'm a big fan of the system but Mario needs Big And Meaningful Goals not thousands of moons that you trip over

on the first play through this game didn’t do a lot for me, but recently i played through it for the fourth or fifth time (top of 804 moons, ~150 hrs in total). definitely more fun on repeated goes.the one thing that doesn’t sit well with me (and honestly it’s a stretch, i don’t really care) is how some levels (new donk, cascades) can be so finely constructed and textured, and others (the lost world) look like duplo. it feels like 2–3 separate studios built their own levels and it was all chucked together at the end.
