    Fair enough - absolutely not the case for me. I found there to be plenty of timing/platform/skill based moons and general traversal littered throughout the game.

    For sure, as I said on the previous page, if 'stages' or courses is what you crave then the game doesn't deliver that. I really think it'd be useful to separate the actual difficulty (and some of it REALLY IS despite your assertions, at least for the majority of players) and the manner in which it's presented.

    I can far more easily understand someone saying "I loved the self contained stages, with a smaller number of stars but a higher general challenge" than the common refrain of "the whole thing is just too easy" which barely computes.

    But, yes, opinions and all that. :)

    Completely agree with this, a step too far from classic platform action and nowhere near galaxy for me. Still really enjoyed it mind you. Needed more like the final stage.

    The only problem with Odyssey is that there's too much filler diluting all the good stuff. The really good stuff is still there, and it's just as creative as past Mario titles, if not more so. And there are loads of cool pure platforming stages too, probably as many as Mario Sunshine had. But there was just no need to have the amount of moons there are in the game. I understand that they wanted to fill up all the stages with things to do, but the game could have been structured a little better, imo.

    In many ways it's the best 3D Mario game, as it has a bit of everything in there. But overall I probably enjoyed it the least... which is an odd thing to say.

    The volleyball can do one. Otherwise I loved it.

    Or just stand in the middle and use Cappy to return the ball. Makes that moon surprisingly easy.

    @Duffking

    Cheers.

    Will give that a go.

    Really impressed with the controller other than that issue.

    @Krip I was too with mine but I realised yesterday that the right stick doesn't quite push all the way to the left in the Switch itself and therefore in something like BotW the camera turns slower that way than the other...

    I picked up the Xenoblade 2 as I had a gift-card. Don't know anything about the series and I haven't played the first one but I enjoy jrpg:s. Now that you have had some time to play the game, how do you like it? Am I in for a treat or a grind-fest. =p

    Are you asking yourself if you like it or not ? /o\

    "Now that you have had some time to play the game, how do you like it?"

    I know that not everyone understands English all that well but I don't know how much more clear I could have been in asking what people think of the game after a while. Usually the "out of the gates" comments are overly positive.

    But sure keep contributing the both of you..

    @Decap i asked the question you've asked a couple of weeks ago. Most pestle have said it's a 7 or 8 out of 10. One said it was much better than that. There were comments about the graphics looking not that great on the big screen.

    From what I can see on my friends list though, people who have it tend to have played scores of hours so far.

    I decided to do a massive review roundup of all the games I missed reviewing at the time of release, mostly physical releases. Not massively in depth reviews but overall general impressions. I only did it as a video. I'm usually too self conscious to post videos on here where I'm physically in it, but hey ho. Happy new year! A celebration of the fantastic first year of the Switch.



    I'm already embarrassed by that thumbnail. Sorry!
    Mate that was a great video, didnít come across as self conscious at all. Was a good watch.
    +1 I meant to say, I watched it all the way through and enjoyed it all. I had expected to turn it off quite quickly to be honest, but it kept me interested for the entire thirty minutes.

    @Decap don't be so sensitive.

    I also watched it all. Good to see positive comments about Has Been Heroes.

    It was the thread on this forum that persuaded me to take a chance!

    Yeah it was good, I think you might over rate some games where you limit yourself to one system but it was a nice insight for a new system owner.

    I confess I skipped to the content I was interested in, but watched approx half of it and enjoyed it. It made me more interested in Has Been Heroes, certainly.

    + What Addy said, don't ever do that!

    Has been Heroes possibly was the most underrated game of 2017. It takes a few hours to get into but then it gets its hooks in. I don't tend to read reviews, but like to check them out at times like this when said reviewer hates a game I like, just to see what the crack is. For HBH it seems most didn't get past the admittedly tough starting difficulty spike. I can see why that would put people off but the game really needs time. I just think it gets marked down for this.
