Interests
Been thinking about this game for, well, a year, and why I didn't really enjoy it. I saw some reviews that I think probably hit on some of the key things I disliked about Odyssey, and I think I can finally go into what I didn't like.

Frequently I mention not liking the 'plot', which sounds silly, but Mario games have a goal, and that's usually to either stop Bowser from conquering the world/universe (with rescuing Peach being auxiliary), or to undo his reign over an area (often involves sorting out the messes he's left behind, and again, Peach is auxiliary). While technically Odyssey is the latter, the goal ultimately just ends up being 'stop Bowser from having a forced wedding with Peach that nobody is going to recognize as valid anyways'. It just screams 'mundane and pointless', and I never really felt like I was cleaning up much of a mess that Bowser had left behind.

Two things contribute to that, I think, and the reviews I think caught them, and I think these are the key problems that differentiate Odyssey from the similarly mundane-seeming Sunshine where you're doing community service by cleaning graffiti;

1. The sheer number of moons makes them individually meaningless and collecting them unrewarding. Accomplishing any task for one doesn't really feel like an accomplishment, because you can get twelve more of the things from far less effort.

2. There are very few worlds, and none of them really change much as you play them and collect moons, which are also more heavily concentrated as a result. I remember the desert has the ice thaw out, and that's about it for the worlds changing. So even ignoring the star/moon/shine sprite inflation, you don't even really get a visual reward or sense of progression. The only progression is giving the airship its full balloon, which isn't really very thrilling.

So at the end of the day, the game feels like a lot of mundane pointless tedium to me, and just isn't as fun or engaging as previous 3D Mario games. Not even the bosses are much fun, because the rabbits feel like stand-ins for the Koopalings or other established characters who're being excluded for the sake of having someone new (who don't really mesh with Bowser's aesthetic btw). The capture mechanic is neat, the graphics are nice... and that's about all it has going for it.

One of the weakest titles in the series IMO, and I probably give it 6.5/10 if I had to rate.

No, actually. I'm perfectly fine with them being dropped. They're a relic of a long gone era.
