    Completed the initial story run of this with 250 moons yesterday after about 10 hoursí play. Really enjoyed it but 880/999 moons sounds like a tough ask. Not sure I can be faffed to do it.

    If you get to 500 moons you unlock the end-game content. And now you've finished the story, there will be a load more easy to reach moons in each kingdom. Don't stop just yet!

    I finished with around 250ish too a few months ago and have to say, the urge to play it ever again dropped off like a rock. Honestly can't be bothered traipsing around searching for more when there's plenty of other games to play. I don't really care, when there's no real need to do so now the 'story' is technically done.

    But I feel bad about it. I know there's like 3/4 of the game still in there but... I just don't care. I know it's an unpopular reaction to what's supposedly one of the best games of all time, but I don't think it's *that* amazing, and my hunger for more moons is non-existant. I can't be the only one. Am I?

    Defo won't get them all though.

    I have a little dabble now and again to grab a few more moons but I have no real urge to get them all.

    I just like messing around with the game every now and then due to the amazing controls.

    I stopped actively playing at just over 550 moons. I wanted to unlock all the extras but didn't necessarily feel the need to 100% the game. I thought I'd rather leave with fond memories than repeat those moons with increased difficulty.

    I still pop in now and then to have a little pootle around though.

    @Bambot No your not the only one. I find it fairly tedious hunting around levels for moons. Its like an open world collectathon, with only clues to help you find them.

    The game is good, but seriously over-rated.

    I like the game but to my taste itís not as fun as the 3DS game was.

    At least theyíve got this Mario 64 thing out of their system now and can bring us a more level based, A to B structured game next.

    Closing in on 500 moons now to unlock the end game content, but it really is getting a bit tiresome. Frankly, the only reason I'm doing it is because my mate 100%ed it and I don't like the idea of being outdone by him (lol). I don't bother with collectables on all other games so I don't know why I'd bother here. Should probably dump it and get back to BulletStorm or move on to Zelda.

    My mate is not a big gamer which may be why he absolutely loved this and played it to death. I am sure I preferred Galaxy although I played it ages ago. It just didn't feel like a chore getting all the stars with Mario and then with Luigi. It was a perfect length.

    I have the gold balloon on this and the hat on the princess castle, all purple coins and all moons. The only thing I didnít do is collect all costumes (f that). Magnificent game.

    Finally got around to buying this after selling and re-buying a switch. 3.5 hours in I think it's the best Mario to date. It basically gives you the same feeling BOTW does in that, it's just so much fun running around being there looking for stuff to find . Generally I hate open words and collectathons but both of the above make it somehow interesting and more importantly compelling to just explore. If you are like me, do yourself a favour and take a chance on this. I think I'll turn it back on....

    I dip back in every now and then to pick up a few more moons here and there.

    The game is fantastic, if not as tightly designed as either of the Galaxy series.

    Have to admit there's always a cut off point with Mario games for me. I never did the second playthrough on Galaxy 1 as Luigi, and didn't get more than a handful of the green stars on Galaxy 2 (so never got the two ultra hard levels). And that's kind of where I'm finding myself with Odyssey right now.

    Sometimes, you just have to put the game down and move on to the next one.

    I don't think I've ever been left so cold with a Mario experience. The controls were as good as they've ever been, but the majority of the worlds, music and new character types they bought in were forgettable at best. Just thought it completely lacked the charm of past games. Come to think of it, 64 aside I don't think I've really got on with any of the 3D games. I would sell it but my 3 year old still likes messing around in Metro City.

    I'd actually say it's probably the most charming Mario game ever tbh, especially with all the captures and transformations. Stacking dozens of goombas on top of each other never failed to make me smile.

    The amount of moons was the main issue I had with the game. The whole thing just felt so padded out, which is a shame as the highs are really high.
