It needs condensed little world full of objects to jump on/against/off. I am already a bit worried after seeing those big grassy plains in Odyssey, or that empty desert. I don't play Mario games to mindlessly run around. I'll go play BOTW if I want to do that. Yup, this game seems to have some of the biggest open spaces in any 3D mario games. They probably think it's ok as long as there are faster means of travel rather than just running. Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.
