Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Best Mario Game Of All Time In My Opinion
paper mario TTYD is an almost flawless game. i say almost because there are a couple of things that most gamers may not enjoy. two words back tracking. mario moves at a really slow pace and warps from area to area aren't accessible untit later in the game. other than some. and there is a steep difficulty curb about half way. other than some other minor gripes this is a game everyone should play this is one of the greatest mario games in existence. if you haven't played it find a copy right this second you won't be disappointed at all
The best Gamecube Game ever.
This is a great game that brings back memories every time I play it. It was back in 2005 when I first picked up this game. Overall the game has great music from the start. The plot of the game is really good, and the gameplay is at perfect length. (Not too short, not too long.) Throughout the game, you will unlock new abilities, power ups, partners, and even get to play as Princess Peach and Bowser! It is very hard to choose a favorite part of the game, since every chapter has it's own unique story to add to the overall game. But if I had to pick one, I love the battle/arena chapter. (If I recall, the town was called Glitzville...) This game is very satisfying when it comes to customization. You can change the look of Mario, as well as change the sound of his hammer when it hits something! The lasting appeal will keep you in front of your TV for hours, because of it's great story that keeps adding on every minute into the game. The difficulty gets harder as the game progresses, however a good strategy will assure that it is not too hard. So, I would recommend this game to anyone who likes customization, a good story, a nice classic, or even for kids!
One of the best NGC Games out there
An addicting game that makes you want to play to the end. If your a hardcore gamer you could easily beat this game in 5-10 days. But even so you'll keep coming back for more... Plain and simple.
paper mario the thousand year door rocks
Paper mario the thousand year door is an awesome game. Good story line, awesome levels, awesome soundtrack, etc. And you have more moves then you did in paper mario 64 such as super jump which allows you to jump really high. I love this game and it's such a classic and i would recommend it to anyone that's a casual/hardcore gamer or basically just anyone who loves to play games. My favorite chapter out of all of them would be chapter 6 the excess express.
I have something to say. I LOVE this game! I got this game yesterday and I'm still really into it. One thing that is kinda annoying about this game is when you're in a strange place, goombas and stuff keep coming up to you. But other than that I love this game! The challenge is really good, well not a perfect 10 but about an 8. The controls are really simple. It's like once you learn them, and use them for the first time, it's pretty easy. There is nothing wrong with the sound. I especially like the backround music in the first town. The graphics are also great. All the people actually look like paper. But the buildings may not look like paper, but they are, and.... well, everything looks AMAZING! Also the story makes alot of sense. I definitly would recommend this game! And I'm not kidding! The next time you go somewhere that sells games, get this game! No wonder why it's a best seller!
Best in the series and best game on the GameCube
This game is easily the best in the series and the best RPG available. I recommend it to any Mario fan, RPG fan, non-RPG fan...any video game player out there. I do not like RPGs but I enjoy this one greatly. It has great characters, an entertaining story, great humor, epic gameplay, and tons of variety. In different parts of this game you will find yourself stranded on an island, making potions in a space station, solving mysteries on a train, fighting people in a wrestling arena, and saving the townspeople that have been turned into pigs. This game is reasonably long. I have not completed it but I have already clocked in over 20 hours. This game has many clever puzzles, battles, and gameplay. It is very fun for all ages: kids will love the bright colors and great characters and older players will love the humor and immersive gameplay. This is not only the best game in the series but also the single best game on the Game Cube.
When I first played the game, I considered it to be okay. But then it go't more intense throughout the whole storyline. With all the bosses and partners and some shocking twists, the beginning kind of confused me mainly because the puzzle was harder than it looked with all the koopa shooting. These are the kind of games that can be frustrating and tough to finish since the story is packed with so many maps and bosses. If I we're to recommend this game to someone, I would say it was very unique and not like all the other Mario related games. The things you can do in the game are unlike any game I've played, its mainly about Mario transforming into paper tubes, airplane and... well just paper! The partners and their abilities have a key role anywhere in the Paper Mario world with all the knowledge and the wind and the riding. Finishing the game was hard and can take you 10 times, but its gonna be a challenge whether you are a pro or an amateur. ;)
BEST GAMECUBE GAME EVER!
t's been more than three years since Nintendo radically changed the presentation of its Mario-themed RPG franchise with the release of Paper Mario. After Square and Nintendo split ways in the mid '90s, Nintendo looked long and hard for a new team to tackle a Super Mario RPG sequel -- and ultimately decided on its first internal game development studio, Intelligent Systems (formerly R&D1). After all, members of the team were behind the original Mario Bros. and had gone on to create such classics as Super Metroid and the strategy RPG franchise Fire Emblem. A perfect fit, as it turned out. Although released late in the system's lifecycle and sporting a unique (and not necessarily mass market-friendly) look, Paper Mario managed to sell more than a million copies worldwide. Fast forward to 2004 -- enter Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The Facts * Play as Mario and friends in a full-fledged RPG, complete with stats upgrades * Play through seven chapters for more than 30 hours of gameplay * Battle using a turn-based combat system with timed action elements * Interact with the crowd in battles * Utilize Mario's paper-like properties for unique special moves. * Join forces with a host of supporting characters, each with their own special moves * Experiment with item combinations to create 57 different recipes * Collect 85 badges to open up new moves, sound effects, and outfits * Battle and gather intel on more than 120 different enemy characters * Supports 480p progressive scan * Dolby Pro-Logic II Surround sound Not Far From the Tree Like recent Nintendo sequels like Pikmin 2 and Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door doesn't break any new grounds in terms of originality. There is no radical switch in style and presentation like between Majora's Mask and Wind Waker, or from Super Mario RPG to the original Paper Mario. Since not much was broken in the N64 predecessor, Nintendo went for evolution over revolution with The Thousand-Year Door. The cutesy presentation starring flat sprite characters, the turn-based combat system with action elements, the simple "someone kidnapped the princess" narrative, the humorous text-based conversations, the memorable soundtrack -- it's all back for an encore presentation. But before you shrug off Paper Mario 2 as an uninspired repeat not worthy of your attention, consider for a moment what really makes a great Mario game. Sure, The Thousand-Year Door doesn't stray far from the formula, but it oozes fun, polish, and, strangely enough, originality. With nearly every other RPG series out there going for elaborate story cutscenes, twisting narratives, and darker visuals, Paper Mario 2 manages to stand out as something a bit different. Nintendo has once again crafted a game that manages to appeal to two distinct audiences at the same time. Kids can enjoy the intuitive gameplay, colorful worlds, and happy-happy characters, while older gamers will chuckle at the many classic Nintendo references and humorous situations. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Here's how the game is played. Platform RPG Perfection If you've played the original Paper Mario, you'll be instantly familiar with the overall system. The game mixes the exploration, conversation and battle-heavy gameplay found in RPGs with action sequences and platforming elements so comfortably at home in the Mario universe. You take control of Mario and set out to join the lovely Princess Peach on a mysterious treasure hunt in a rundown port town. But when you arrive, Peach is gone. Kidnapped again? Hey, everyone's got a job, and Princess Peach's lot in life is to get kidnapped again and again. It's what keeps Mario from plumbing -- and gives us the chance to keep playing and see a world outside the kitchen sink. Using a map sent by Peach, Mario embarks on a long quest to find seven Crystal Stars. Only when these artifacts are united will the magical Thousand-Year Door swing open and reveal t
Best one out of the 3.
This Paper Mario is my favorite one out of the 1st (Paper Mario for the N64) and 3rd(Super Paper Mario) ones. It's very fun! Some what addicting at times. Can be very annoying/complicating at some points in the game but over all I like this one the best. *Thumbs up*
I actually would recommend this game. This was the second game I got for my Gamecube, and I think it's very challenging, it has a great variety of characters, and I love the medieval-type setting. There is one problem: I have gotten Koops now as a partner, as well as Goombella, and I canot jump on the two blocks at the same time "to unlock the path to Hooktail". How can I get Koops to help me, that's what's frustrating. I get to a certain point in the game though where I'm just stuck and I can't go any further... Please, it is a good game to use your money on, trust me, I'm just not that good of a player. If you're good at Mario games, then you're sure to love this one! And I love the feature of having partners. It's awesome. The battles are fun and smooth, and controls are easy to handle, which is what I like. You're sure to be pleased with Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
