Product Details:

An Imaginative Paper Mario Adventure with a Sticky Twist A sticky situation has never been so fun! There's trouble afoot in the town of Decalburg, where the devious Bowser has disrupted the beloved Sticker Fest by causing the Sticker Comet to explode. Now Royal Stickers and pieces of the comet have been flung far and wide, and it's up to Mario and his ally Kersti to set things right by recovering them. This captivating hand-held Adventure will have new and experienced fans of the Paper Mario series captivated as they navigate colorful 3D environments, defeat enemies, collect oodles of stickers and items and use them in a variety of fun ways.

  • Stickers are the key to this imaginative adventure. Battles are turn-based like in the original Paper Mario game, but instead of an attack menu, Mario whomps on his enemies using a sticker to attack. Stickers not only serve as Mario's attacks, but also help solve puzzles throughout the Paper Mario universe when placed in the correct spots. Stickers can be found and collected from all corners of the world, and the flashier the sticker, the more powerful it is.
  • Mario can also spend coins to use the Battle Spinner, which lets him use up to 3 stickers in one turn if the icons are lined up just right. The Battle Spinner can turn the tide in a difficult battle, so collecting coins through the game to use it is crucial.
  • Paper Mario: Sticker Star players get stronger by beating bosses, finding items and completing side missions for other characters in the game instead of accumulating experience points.
  • As players progress through the game, they'll find and use more powerful stickers to boost Mario's attack power. Players can also find HP-Up hearts to further boost Mario's maximum health.
  • The environments in Paper Mario: Sticker Star come to life in this visually-stunning papercraft world on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. They also contain a wide range of objects such as electric fans, scissors and radiators that can be converted into more stickers, which can then be used to solve puzzles or win battles as Mario maneuvers through each level.

Game Informer Rating:

Rated 8.75 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just not very good... I was SO excited when this came out. Thousand year door was great, Super Paper Mario was good despite what people say, and nothing can compare to the original. This one, though... was bad. Nothing else can describe it. The gameplay, plot development and characters are weak. If you like previous titles, just play Paper Jam.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No party characters means it's a bad Mario RPG. This is the worst Mario RPG in the franchise. I get lost so easily in this game that the strategy guide barley helped. The music and the environment is very well built, but story line is pretty cheesy. During the adventure, you can only attack when you have stickers, which I don't accept. Lastly, I hate the fact that there is no partner system. No Koopa, Goomba (to scale enemies for statuses), or Ghost partner to help you fight with Mario. Overall, this is unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY fresh and new and a complete delight to play! This game is truly unique despite it being the 4th entry in the Paper Mario series. Using stickers in battle is something Nintendo has never done before and it was extremely refreshing from some of the recycled Mario games we are seeing nowadays. This was the first game I played on my 3DS after a 3ish year hiatus on video games, and it was PERFECT. There is TONS to do, many many levels, tons of secrets, and many post-story goals and activities. There are many new faces, as well as many returning faces. I really love this game, its music, its gameplay, and pretty much everything about it. This is all coming from a 23 year old, 90's Nintendo game kid who is often left wanting with many of the newer Mario games. Get this game!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game! I have no idea why people hate this game. Paper Mario Sticker Star is great! The plot line is good and so is the gameplay so there's really nothing to not like about this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Game Lots of situations and problems to figure out. Tough fights and in certain cases requires a good strategy. You should try it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was an alright experience... I borrowed this game from my friend, because he forbid me from buying this game. So I played it to see what the fuss was about. The game, it's not bad, but it's not good either. Imagine eating something that looks good, but it turns out to be the worst thing you've ever tasted in your life. That just summarizes my experience playing the game. This game could have destroyed the face of Paper Mario, but due to their past successes, making this game was basically to experiment with Paper Mario, but with stickers and stars. I would not recommend this to a friend & I hope you won't either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Falls flat While I appreciate the implied limitations of designing games for handhelds—especially series previously only on consoles—there's little excuse for gutting the battle system from the original and GameCube versions. There's no party system, no experience system, and no battle participation. Rather than execute a simple combo like in TTYD, battling is just picking stickers. Essentially, it's battling by touching icons and trying not to let the icons run out. The story lacks the humor and creativity of previous outings. Music and sounds are okay, but nothing memorable. Really, the only redeemable quality of this game are the graphics. Whether or not these limitations are a function of the 3DS hardware I cannot say. But regardless, it seems a poor excuse for the dumbed-down combat and overall lack of vision in this game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the greatest game! If you like Paper Mario, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and/or Nintendo Selects: Super Paper Mario, do NOT purchase this game unless, like me, purchased the game with 100% GS credit.
