Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Bold Prediction: SMO will get a 99 on Metacritic! [Update currently a 97!] I Took the "L"

over under is 97



Around the Network

96 to 98.



99 is impossible in this day and age, with just how many reviews there are and the chance of a troll dev or 2.
I'd go with less than Galaxy 1 and 2 despite being a better game

It's a Nintendo game, so inflated metactitic score - It will get a score of 105

Weres the inflation??



How about putting a bet on it?



Around the Network

I'd say ~96.5.

To me the game looks great, but falls a little short of Super Mario Galaxy in creative excellence and ambition. Granted, we have obviously only seen a small part of the game, and Super Mario Galaxy was one of those games that had SO much diversity and so many gems (figuratively and literally) throughout in terms of creative design.

I think the potential is there for better ratings, but it's not quite Breath of the Wild or Galaxy, IMO.

One thing I will say about Mario Odyssey is that it has solidified the Switch as an argument for Nintendo's strongest first party lineup during its firs year on the market. I would certainly argue that Breath of the Wild + Mario Odyssey is a stronger combo than Twilight Princess + Mario Galaxy. While Wii had Metroid Prime 3, Super Paper Mario, and Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn in that first year, Switch has Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, Splatoon 2, and Xenoblade 2.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

yeah, I don't think what was shown is quite on par with it either. Although it is VERY easily the next best thing to the Galaxies, even if a little less ambitious and creatively awesome.

I say 96 is the highest. Jim will come out five weeks later and pick apart the game, because that is what he does. It wasn't like Musuo game for him.

Not if Jim has anything to say about this.                                     

After his last podcast, I'm pretty sure is gonna put at least a 9/10 with a ''fuckable Bowser'' mention somewhere.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

It'll get a 100 and then Jim Sterling will give it a 0 for trying too hard to be good and it'll drop to a 98.
