Product Details:

Mario and Luigi are enjoying a lazy afternoon at their house when they hear the terrible news: Princess Peach has been kidnapped! The two brothers head straight for Bowser's castle to get her back, but Bowser is just as surprised about Peach's kidnapping as they are. At that moment, a strange top-hatted villain warps in and abducts everyone but Mario. The mysterious villain then forces Peach and Bowser to get married, creating a rift of dark energy that threatens to tear the universe apart. Only Mario can save the day ... but he can't do it alone. The newest chapter of the Paper Mario story isn't just out of this world ... it's out of this dimension. What at first glance appears to be a 2-D side-scroller ripped straight from the stylized pages of the Paper Mario universe soon turns into a hilarious dimension-shifting platformer possible only on Wii.


  • Players run through vibrant 2-D worlds, stomping on enemies and breaking blocks ... then, with the press of a button, they flip into 3-D. In the third dimension, they'll find hidden paths, battle foes and uncover secrets as they explore the previously invisible depth of the 2-D landscapes.
  • Hold the Wii Remote sideways and control the game in classic Super Mario Bros. style. Players can shake the Wii Remote to pull off stylish moves and break out of frigid ice and even point directly at the screen to get helpful hints from their sidekick. Not only that, but they'll also play as Peach and Bowser, both with their own sets of essential skills.
  • When a mysterious villain kidnaps Peach and Bowser and forces them to get married, their union creates a rift of dark energy that threatens to tear the universe apart. Hilarious characters, laugh-out-loud plot twists and unforgettable dimensions await as Mario makes his way through eight chapters, each more memorable than the last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game that does not get enough credit I have read some of the negative comments on this game and a lot of them say that it does not live up to the standards that Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door set years before. I personally played both games and I think that both of these are spectacular. While I agree that Paper Mario for the GameCube is more of an RPG than this one, that fact does not ruin the game for me at all. I loved the approach that this game took. The 3D aspect is excellent, the music and visuals are excellent, and the story, which I will talk about later, is much better than people think. While in Paper Mario for the GameCube, you had more of a free roam aspect and each enemy had to have its own battle, in this Paper Mario, you can defeat an enemy in real time and continue on your way, making the game move more smoothly than its predecessor. There are also a lot of engaging and loveable characters in this paper Mario, just like its predecessor. So now that I have talked about the gameplay and how it differs than the predecessor briefly, let's talk about the story. Both of these Paper Mario games start out roughly the same, like any other Mario game, Peach is in trouble and you need to save her from a new enemy. Paper Mario and the thousand year door's story is more obvious and I will elaborate on that now. When you finish the game, you are left immediately satisfied that you saved the day and you continue on with your day, while super paper Mario's story when you finish it may require some more analysis or thinking. Unfortunately I feel that SPP's story is not given enough credit. When you finish it, you may not feel the full satisfaction of finishing the game, and you may not even interpret the ending in its fullness. An example would be that I played the game when I was much younger, and when I finished the game I said, "what a great game" and I turned off the game shortly after. I recently played the game again, and now that I had focused more on the story, I fully realized just how powerful it was. What I'm going to say may seem very abstract, but it is only because I am trying not to spoil the game. I guess even more reason to buy the game and try it for yourself haha. While the game may seem like a cliche story about the power of love, I think that the story deserves much more credit for its powerful and dramatic storyline. Perhaps it's because I am a sucker for stuff like that, but I still think that this game deserves much more than it's getting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice game The game gets some hate, but it's only from hardcore fans of the original Paper Mario series. It is a fun platformer, and the story is great. The graphics are simple and creative but very good. The music isn't my favorite, but there are some great tracks and I still enjoy it. There are a lot of things that seem like bad gimmicks, but they all work out pretty well and add to the game. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a really good game, but not like the others. This game is a good game in its own right. If you like the platforming gameplay of the main series then you'll like this game. But if you liked the RPG gameplay of the original and The Thousand-Year Door then you might want to skip this game. This game is pretty much a 2D platformer with little to no RPG elements. You can try this game if you want, but don't take my word for it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent little game Much has been made of the Paper Mario series as the "Mario RPG" end-all, and while there are RPG elements to the game, it is hardly as involved and deep as those I am most familiar with. What it is, though, is a cheerfully well-executed platformer brimming with cuteness and color. Don't take that as dismissive, as the gameplay may be predictable and somewhat limited but is solid and engaging. Some minor puzzle-solving is involved, and the capacity to "flip" the 2D world into 3D leaves lots of places for hidden goodies and treasure; both of which add a level of complexity and depth to the game. There is also a good deal of humor that is both accessible to new Mario gamers and those familiar with the franchise. This game may not be the pinnacle of Wii game development, but it is further proof of the very solid and entertaining quality of Nintendo's gaming division and the high level of execution they consistently provide. Highly recommended game for all ages!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from An underrated game.... When I heard there was a paper mario game on the wii, i was excited! So i looked up the reviews, and most of them were negative. Why, well the battle systems are different from the other games and its 2D, but you can flip in the 3rd demension with mario. Does this make it a bad game though? No Way!!!! If you take it for what it is, you will find a quirky, fun adventure, with your favorite mario characters. I like this game, so give it a chance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endless continuities The negative reviews that I have read are all saying that this isn't as good as The Thousand Year Door. The reason that they say this, is because it's two separate types of games. This version ties closer to the original NES Mario, but adds a lot more. This game has several puzzles that you can't beat in a day or so. I recently sold it to my regret, and about a week after I wanted to play it again. The puzzles are more direction based then logic based, and simply finding everything is extremely difficult. Just trying to unlock one extra Pixl takes a good hour at least. The storyline is intensly satisfying and the music keeps the game light hearted and open. You aren't constrained to go ahead on the next level as you were in Super Mario Bros 3. You can replay levels in order to unlock more Easter Eggs. One of the most satisfying games I have ever played and hope to continue to.
