This game is pure gold. Nintendo quality is putting it lightly... it rivals some of their best, and is just as innovative. This game actually brought the platformer genre places it has never been, and also took VR places it has never been either (yes, there are other VR platformers, but none that are as complete an experience and that fully utilize ALL of the hardware quite the same way).

but because it doesn't have Mario in it, reviewers are reluctant to give it 10/10! true story.

the argument of "true innovation and a whole new level of gameplay in its genre" like what we've seen in Spider-man's reviews got thrown out of the window!

it's disgusting reading reviews like IGN's which glorified a tried and true formula like Mario Odyssey and gave it a 10 while a truly innovative and genre-defining experience like this got a 9 because of...reasons!

Well they were most likely reviewed by two different reviewers or do you think ign is an actual person lol

IGN Japan reviewed this game. They gave it a 10/10.

VR needs its exclusives too to get gamers to buy it. Wouldn't want to see Sony make it flat screen unless the game wasn't selling. We're not there yet and hopefully they never have to do that.
