  • Super Paper Mario Reviews...

    Originally posted by IGN.com

    You should buy this game for a number of reasons. It's a Mario game and for some that will be enough. It's also one part platformer and another part RPG, successfully dabbling in both genres. It controls tightly and uses the Wii remote in a smart manner without stepping into forced territory. The new 2D-to-3D dynamic is built around clever and surprisingly complex puzzles that will challenge and impress you. And it all comes together to make Super Paper Mario a highly enjoyable title, whether you want to call it a platformer, an RPG, or something in-between. You will have fun and the fun will last for a good while, plain and simple.

    And with that being said, that doesn't mean that the game is a work of perfection because that isn't true. The writing is well-crafted and humorous, but there is so much to read that it actually interrupts the flow of the game. Meanwhile, the 3D perspectives tend to look barren and boring even as the 2D views showcase stylized and colorful backdrops befitting of a classic Mario game. These gripes keep Super Paper Mario from becoming a truly masterful endeavor, but they don't stop us from recommending it as a must-buy for any Nintendo fan.

    8.0Presentation
    The Paper Mario series reborn with a new emphasis on platforming. All your favorite characters are back and there's a humorous storyline, but there's also just way too much text to read.

    7.5Graphics
    A beautiful 2D platformer and an uninspired 3D one. The worlds Mario explores look fantastic when they're flat, but the moment they gain depth they become barren landscapes.

    7.5Sound
    Fitting silly sound effects and a compilation of MIDI music -- some of the tracks really ring true and others are throw-aways.

    9.0Gameplay
    Really fun and extremely clever. You'll play it as a platformer, but there's a light RPG in place, too. Tight controls and clever levels that use the 2D/3D dynamic will impress you again and again.

    9.0Lasting Appeal
    A good, long adventure that will span upward of 20 hours and that doesn't even consider some of the goodies you might have missed along the way.

    8.9
    GreatOVERALL
    (out of 10 / not an average)
    Sounds like a solid purchase!

              I got to play a demo of it for like 10 minutes and it was a fun game! I have yet to play a Mario game that I did not enjoy.

                I got it and played it for an hour (I would have played more but my friends are over and wanted to play a multiplayer game)
                The game is great, it starts off with alot of reading but when you get to chapter 1-1 its all fun from there.
                Happy Halloween!!!

                      Not only is the beginning text heavy... it's quite heavy throughout. But at least it's quite funny, as the Paper Mario series (and Mario & Luigi series) has always been. Just wait till you get to the Chapter 1 main boss... hilarious!

                        Anyone else get an email from Nintendo regarding this game? I got one today that has a wedding announcement of Peach and Bowser.

                          Hahaha that is hilarious!!! I'll have to check my Wii when I get home one of these days (I have a busy weekend.) But last night I bought Super Paper Mario and got into Chapter 1-3.... it's SO SO SO funny so far, I love the sense of humor. Especially about the all powerful being watching them (in other words, YOU).

                          There is one part tho I can't do at the end of 1-3, where there's a jumping puzzle in 3-D where there's a pipe above a door.. I can't make the jumps in time for 3-D to run out and I'm wondering what the heck is in that pipe!

                              LOL thanks for the help, I figured it out finally -- I was standing in the wrong place per 3-d and kept falling but I figured how to make it work.

                              Now I am just started on Chapter 3
