As long as it's done well, both are good ways of approaching level design. Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Odyssey approach level design in very different ways: Galaxy has more levels and they are pretty linear in their nature, while Odyssey has less levels but they are a lot bigger and more open, allowing for more freedom. I wouldn't say one is better than the other. They are different, but they are both excellent games.
