That’s all added up to a mighty overall score of 98.92% (at the time of writing) on the longstanding game review score aggregator GameRankings, putting it in first place ahead of Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario Galaxy 2.
Of course, Metacritic does have a slightly different formula for calculating their Metascores, along with different outlets which are tracked. So the picture is a little bit different there, with Super Mario Odyssey in 7th place. Its Metascore of 97 actually ties it with Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2.
