It's nice for a 2d mario game to feel novel after so long. Wonder excels in its pacing--both at the macro and micro scale. Really nice to have the special world levels--what's usually relegated to a post-game world--sprinkled in as you complete each main world.
Some neat ideas in the gameplay loop and metaphysical plot devices, but it lacks in so much nuance to make me really enjoy it. This ain't no Twin Peaks... Didn't play the DLC since I've heard it's just more of the same in terms of combat.

A wonderful example of how to pace an entire game, and craft interesting encounters throughout. The movement and shooting feels so satisfying once you master them--a feeling future third person shooters have lost despite modern twin-stick controls unquestionably being a more intuitive control scheme.
