    • I finally got around to finishing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. I don't mind the crude, verging on racist, humor and the play style is reminiscent of early 90s beat 'em ups. There's even a move where you hit A to land a size 22 kick that launches the enemy straight into the screen just like TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Shaq Fu never takes itself seriously, poking fun at crowd funding and the game itself. All of the old beat 'em up tropes are present and accounted for; endless enemies, random things in the background and foreground to smash, the odd object you can use as a weapon until it breaks, etc. At $20 USD in the eshop I think that the price is a bit steep for the amount of game time you'll get from it, if you play it on easy you can walk through this game in one sitting and I don't see much replay value in it. Harder difficulties does make it a longer process though. There is a DLC pack called "Barack Fu"  that opens up a new story line where you play as President Obama, the humor continues as one of "Dirty Barry's" moves lets you call in a "Peace Prize" drone strike. Nintendo's eShop says it released on June 5, but I can't seem to find it. The game's website says that physical copies come with a code to download a "bonus game" later this month. I haven't seen what that game is yet but I would suspect that it is the DLC so if you really want to fight as Barack Obama the physical version might save you a bit of money. Overall I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 5 out of 7 Size 22 Reebok Pumps. Pick it up if you find it on sale, and you enjoy old school beat 'em ups (think TMNT IV style with some off color humor and a stupid plot).

(Spoilers) Ranking the Kingdoms in Mario Odyssey

My rankings

13 Lake kingdom

Just plain and simple. Awful. No story, no fun, nothing positive at all about this. Except maybe the music.

12 Bowser's Kingdom

I like this kingdom, a lot. However, all kingdoms from here to number 1 are also really good. This is just how it went. 

11 Moon Kingdom

See above, only difference is it is much better.

10 Cascade Kingdom

Also see above, only difference here is it is slightly better.

9 Snow Kingdom

A wild card that is indeed a wild card. I have the unpopular option that this kingdom is really good, however there is a lot of things holding it back. Like the large unused and/or untapped space found everywhere, and also the amount of moons.

 8 Metro Kingdom

7.5/10, I really like it, but it has a lot of flaws like the snow kingdom. Except they are worse. But seriously why does no one notice them? It is clearly not the best kingdom.

7 Cap Kingdom

From this point on, every kingdom here are incredible. However, 1-6 are just simply better. Cap kingdom easily has the 3'rd best aesthetic and/or art style. (1 being Luncheon and 2 being Lost).  It reminds me a lot of Nightmare before Christmas, but better. However, it is kind of small and also very, very short on power moons. Only one other kingdom can get away with this.

 6 Mushroom Kingdom

First off, I have no nostalgia for 64. That shows how good this level is, however, It has it's flaws. In addition to this, like the cap kingdom 1-5 are just better than it. That will apply with the next 2 kingdoms as well.

5 Luncheon Kingdom

Amazing, 9.5/10. However, as stated earlier, 1-4 are just better, but I can't think of any flaws except maybe traversing through lava. However, I really did not mind it a lot.

4 Seaside Kingdom

Even better than Luncheon kingdom, and Just amazing. 9.8/10. No flaws here, except for 2, one minor and one large. The first being moon count, for it's size and etc, it has way too many moons and it is just absurd. 2nd, they don't use much land, however this is just kind of a nitpick.

3 Wooded Kingdom

1-3 are easily among the best levels in any Mario game period. It was very hard to pick, but wooded ended out as number 3. 10/10, just like 1 and 2 a little more.

2 Sand Kingdom 

1 and 2 were very close, and some may get very angry at my number one choice. (That is, if anyone even sees this.) Again, 10/10, amazing music, amazing world, which by the way is so contrasting to my number one and very fun to explore. However, number one is subjectively better, but it was very, very close.

1 Lost Kingdom

Remember how lake kingdom was pretty small? Well this stage is too, but it does it right. This kingdom is looks like if yoshis island and Mario 64 had a baby.(Which is a good thing) This stage may seem small on the surface, but it larger than it looks. The stage looks like a diorama of sorts, and also is home to the 2 best captures in the game, the tropical wiggler & Glydon. Flying over the Lost isle is breath taking (IN MY OPTION) and the music is just amazing, despite only having 2 or 3 tracks. Combine with the return of Klepto from 64, and you have a amazing stage. 10/10, however, there is only one flaw, which is the moon count, which shares numbers with Lake and Cap, at around 30-39. That does not hold it down though, as i believe it is the best kingsdom in the game.


what an excellent summary of the kingdoms, I can't believe I missed your post! Believe it or not I've yet to properly play the game, I've only watched others play it despite owning it! I actually ended up buying Super Mario 3D World for the 3DS and playing that instead because I felt it was more true to what the Mario Universe SHOULD look like. Mario Odyssey just seemed too gritty and real for me, but having seen gameplay and read posts like yours I've found there's a lot to love about it. 

I have such a big backlog of games to play it's not funny. But thanks for sharing! Luncheon Kingdom looks like it will  be my favorite!
