Super Paper Mario
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.
Super paper mario is one of my favorite games for the wii. Super paper mario has a real time rpg instead of the turn based rpg in the previous games. I hated the previous turn based rpg's because you always got your hp taken away. I prefer to use the real time rpg. Anyways in super paper mario you can only play as four characters. The characters are mario, bowser, peach, and at the end of the game luigi. You will mainly use mario throughout the journey. In this game you go around getting pixi's as well. These pixi's can help guide you in sticky situations in the game. The plot is kind of good for a mario game. A guy named count bleck wants to destroy all worlds but it's your job to stop him. You collect a total of eight hearts before you save the world. This game was way better than the previous paper mario games. This game has pretty good cartoony graphics for the wii and it is fun to play. If you don't haave this game go out and buy it right now.
awesome game so far
this is my first time playing a paper mario game and i really like it. i only have 2 of the pure hearts not counting the one you get at the beginning, but i can say its a really great game. being a fan of mario myself. i like the dimensional flip thing except for when you lose life as you are in it. i think its cool how you have to find things for yourself. it adds the challenge and you cant always expect the game to just throw everything at you. it ruins the game and the fun. there are so many secrets i have found and i still have a lot to see. the music in the game is excellent as well. if you like platforming mario this game is for you. also i would recommend to any mario fan
BEST GAME EVER.
For people who are thinking of buying this game and are thinking again after reading all the negative comments, THIS GAME IS AWESOME!
All the negative comments are basically saying that Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door was better. Yes, but think about it. Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door was THE BEST GAME EVER FOR GAMECUBE. In comparison, Super Paper Mario may seem a little less good. BUT it's STILL one of my favorite games, even though they didn't add the cool battling style from the gamecube game. And WHY didn't they add that? Because some people hated the battling style! Some people wanted more action. So Nintendo made it the way people wanted it. Yes, I liked the old battling style, but get over it.
The one other thing people are mainly talking about is how easy the puzzles are. Again, this is in comparison to Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door, so the puzzles seem a little less difficult. They are not extremely difficult, but they ARE actually challenging. Plus, what is lost in the battling style and puzzles are gained in the secrets. There is another town that is the opposite of the one you start out in, and there are sometimes rare items in the shops there. Also there are pixls that you can only get through a series of puzzles, and secret cards that you can collect through the Pit of 100 Trials in Flipside, or Flopside. Oh, didn't I mention the secret rooms or the WhackaBump which gives you 30 HP which you can only find in one place?
Basically what I'm saying is that people keep complaining about all the bad things in Super Paper Mario, and they aren't admiring the good things about the game. This game is one of the best Mario games, and I would definitely recommend getting it.
I love this game. Its one of the few that I went to the trouble to play the whole way through. In fact I just played it to the end again yesterday. I think this is much better than Paper Mario: the thousand year door simply because in PM:TTYD, you have to go into a battle with any enemy you encounter. Because SPM is well, super you can just deal with your enemies as you come to them and effectively avoid their attacks. I also like this better than Super Mario Galaxy because the camera is fix in place either behind you or on the side of you (3D vs 2D)And there are simple levels set up instead of multiple ways to get stars to unlock the next galaxy. The story line in this line involves 2 character that have a forbidden romance named blumiere and timpani. When blumiere's father stops the romance. Blumiere goes to extremes to make everyone else suffer with him. Basically its has a great ending and an awesome story leading up to it. Buy it!
Great Sequel for the series!
The newest game for the paper mario series trumps the other games hands down. The sound quality is a little shaky but the music itself is awesome. The storyline is the same but kind of breaks away because of the hidden story between the people called Blumerie and Timpinai. The length is a little short compared to the other games but is still pretty long. The interface was a little disapointing but still allowed interactivity. The graphics and animation were better than the other games but could stiil use some improvement. The controls were awesome compared to the other games and the 3-D switching was cool all the way. The game was kind of easy but some of the charecters still proved to be challenges. The charecter customization was disappointing becuase you couldn't equip your charecters with items and colthing that would give them a power up. The game is good but compared to Assassin's Creed 2, there's an obvious choic.
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!
Don't Listen To The Other Reviews
The game is great, no doubt about it. The gameplay is good, no bad controls. I also think it's good cause they brought back the old platforming Mario, mixed in with the 3D mario. You may not get partners like in the N64 one, but you get to play as Luigi. 'Nuff said. The boss designs are very interesting along with their names. The text has something funny every once in a while, especially when they break the fourth wall. I'd have to say the only real dissapointment is that you can't equip mario with badges or clothing items or anything like that. But it has some good music and cool level designs. But instead of partners, you get Pixls. Which are basically the same thing. Each one has a special ability to help Mario complete puzzels. For example, there is one Pixl who is just Bombette in Pixl form. Long story short, this is a must-have for any Mario fan.
not what i expected
super paper mario is not at all what i expected every thing about it changed since thousand year door first off its in 2D but you get the power to change into 3D for a limited time now that isnt so bad but wait theres more instead of turn based battle now you just jump on everything till it drops dead now its more fast paced but turn based battle made paper mario stick out as a original title that you could enjoy not just a normal mario title also with no more 3D it makes game feel more linear and just boring puzzles are a little less cool but flipping in to 3D makes for clever puzzles with allies that you gain you will be changing into them alot this game gets boring after awhile yes but there are fun moments but this game seems more for kids mostly cause its so easy its pretty long but only if you get stuck in the puzzles every now and then overall if you want a great paper mario game get thousand year door for now or just rent this game
This game is great.
Don't listen to the other reviews. This game is 100% fun. I like it a whole lot more than Thousand Year Door and the original. I honestly don't like those two. The storyline is great, the sound is amazing, and the overall feel of it is fun. I like the fact that you have pixels instead of partners, because it gives you more variety on what you can do with them. I like the way you can play as Bowser and Peach as well. Bottom line is, if you want a good game to play casually and not be bored with it, you should definitely buy this game.
