Hey guys! Been a while since I posted on here(sorry about that). This is gonna be really long. Just warning you now.
Before we start, I just wanna say
So, in Super Mario Odyssey, the story starts right away. You first start out watching B&M duking it out on Bowser’s Airship, with Bowser in his wedding outfit, and Peach in his arms. Then Big B throws his hat, which Mario dodges the first time. But then the hat comes back, hitting Mario off the Airship. And his hat goes flying, and it gets shredded in the propeller! Then Big B says that he’s going to get married to Peach. Then he asks Mario is he’s jeli(he literally says jeli). Then a hat ghost catches a piece of Mario’s hat (the part with the M on it, funny enough)
When Mario lands, he gets ko’d. Then the same ghost sees Mario, and tries to wake him up. This is where we first are able to control Mario. At first, it (of course) only lets us move the cam. Then, when it detects that we’ve moved it around a bit, it’ll let us jump up(in the opposite way of where the ghost is facing). This startles the ghost, and when we turn around, he runs(flies?) away. There’s nothing to do other than chase him(and talk to some ghosts (of the same type, but hats that are darker), though their dialogue isn’t that interesting). When you find him (which isn’t hard), he comes out, and says that you startled him, and he startles easily (which means he gets scared easily (even though he’s a ghost)). He then says that his name is Cappy. Then he says that the same “monster”that you fought took his sister (which was the tiara that Peach was wearing, and in the cut scene, you can actually see that if you pay attention). He says that you two should team up. Mario says yes. Then Cappy goes up and plops himself down on Mario’s head, and theeeeeen… Mario doesn’t like it. When Cappy addresses this, he then floats back up, and synchronizes himself with the piece of Mario’s shredded hat that he caught. Then he plops himself down again. Then, Mario thinks of something. Then he grabs Cappy, and throws him, and then Cappy comes back, and Mario catches Cappy.
Then, you have control of Mario once again. Is you progress, a ghost will say that the “monster’s” minions are still on top of the Top-Hat Tower.
Once you go into the tower, of you try to platform up the tower, you’ll find that you can’t. Cappy then says that he has an idea, and says to throw him on a frog. You’ll need to hit it twice, as all frogs (and some enemies) have hats already on them. Once the hat goes on the frog, Mario gets sucked into the frog. He then goes thought this sort of transformation. Then, when it’s done, he looks at his hands to find that-what’s this?-HERE’S TURNED INTO A FROG! Not to worry tho, here didn’t really turn into one. He just possessed one.
Now Mario can progress, and at the top, there is a chest. This isn’t part of the story line though. If you open it, you’ll get a giant heart, that will heal all your HP, and give you 3 more! Now, when you go out the door, you’ll find you’re nearly at the top. If you go up the stairs, and on to the white platform, you’ll find the “minions”. They’ll talk, but all that’s really important is that they work for Bowser, and they are Rabbits called the Broodals. Then one of them (his name apparently being Topper) jumps down, and engages a boss battle. It’s pretty easy. That’s really all there is to say on the matter. Once you’ve beat him, you possess a wire, which turns you into electricity. If you go towards the direction where the wire points to, then you’ll zoom off. And then the SMO logo appears. And that’s all I’m telling you, because I don’t wanna spoil more.
Well, there you have it. The first part of SMO. There is more, but if go REALLY into depth of I said anymore. In the end, I rate SMO (the whole game) 9/10, because this game is REALLY good, but it’s not the best. For instance, it’s got a lot of Power Moons, which could lead to the players just skipping the bosses, and just powering up the Odyssey with the extra Power Moons. This would not bring peace to the kingdoms, and then they would skip all the fun they could’ve had. Also, there are, of course glitches. They are rare though, that’s why it’s still a 9/10.
