Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

This game is great, not much replayability

It’s a really fun game, pretty easy and not too much scary stuff. But once you beat the game, you can’t really do anything except grind until you get to the darker side.

Shigeru Miyamotos step up.

When I think of Mario games that make me go speechless, I think of Super Mario Odyssey.All the moons you can collect is amazing.You know what.I could stay at the second world and still have fun without collecting a single coin, but this game doesn't give me the joy Super Mario 64 gives.But it's still great!
