Nintendo Selects: Super Paper Mario
Not as bad as some people say it is.
This was my first Paper Mario game and I didn't know about Paper Mario or Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door til I saw Youtube videos for both games (Thanks Chuggaaconroy) I guess that's why the score is an 8 because I played a lot of this game before trying out the others. Although, it would have probably been a 9 if those 2 games didn't exist. Super Paper Mario is different from the previous Paper Mario games and that's probably why some people the it. Let's start with the obvious difference, it's mostly a 2-D sidescroller while the others are a 3-D adventure. Another difference is no turn-based battles, instead you jump on the enemies like classic Mario gameplay (Another reason people probably hate it) but while it Is different from the rest, it's still a very fun game. The story of this game in brief is that Count Bleck (that name almost sounds like someone throwing up) forces Peach and Bowser to marry and it creates the chaos emerald......I mean chaos heart and a void appears and is about to suck everything in it (so in conclusion, the void is a black hole) and without Mario, everyone will get sucked in (Come on guys, can't you act mature when you hear that word?) That's the basic story, it gets deeper ad more complex as you play. Helping Mario this time are pixels (the tings that replace partners) and you can play as 4 different characters (as you unlock them) each with special abilities. Another thing is Mario having the ability to flip into 3-D but only for a very short time so, don't think you can stay in 3-D forever. The worlds are fun to play in as well, and SPOILER ALERT Don't read what's in the parentheses here if you don't want to be minor spoiled (Space World was probably inspiration for Mario Galaxy) No more spoilers. One thing I find odd is that it's rated E for everyone because one character can definitely scare younger children (those who've played know what I mean........those who haven't, well, good luck in chapter 2-4.) I'd say it's just as creepy, if not creepier than Deadhand (I think that's it's name) from Zelda Ocarina Of Time. (That's E rated as well........that the heck? Neither game should be E rated, but oh well, watch out for creepy and somewhat disturbingness in both games) While it may not be the best Paper Mario game out there (That goes to Thousand Year Door) it's still a good game and you should at least try it out. (Well, I wasted an hour on this review and no one will probably read it.............sigh)
I love this game and the story. Its fun how it reveals through out the game. The pixel powers are creative and to be honest my favorite character is Dimentio. I know weird but I like him he's cool and dangerous. Honestly the counts castle is amazing and his crew of super power gang is pretty awesome except the real Mimi is kind of gross. Anyways this game is super fun and like sonic adventure 2 I'm going with the dark side. Only if I had the option and powers of count bleck and his crew, that would've been a fun game,scratch that, Funner game!!! I also recommend Mario kart 7.
Super Paper Mario review
With the Gamecube gone and Sticker Star being the most mixed Paper Mario game to date, I thought I'd talk about it's predecessor Super Paper Mario. Story: The story is quite simple, Peach has been kidnapped by Bowser, but things go awry. An evil wizard by the name of Count Bleck has taken Peach and Luigi away. Mario tries to stop the evil count, but fails in the attempt and is then sent to Flipside (the hub of this game). Mario must go on his quest to save his friends, stop the evil Count Bleck, and meet many colorful characters along the way. The story isn't as simple as the first paper mario game, nor as complex or well done as thousand Year Door, it's just... great. Presentation: The presentation is just beautiful, ranging from the 8 bit land of Bitlands (duh), to Outer Space, and to the final land of epicness, the dark world of Castle Bleck. Everything looks like it just belongs it all feels like a big paper craft (with pixels). Them music is some of the best in the series as well, ranging from Mr. L's theme, to the Francis battle, to the master Final Boss's theme *Spoilers* Super Dimentio! Overall just amazing presentation and very well done, but as you all know, presentation doesn't make a game. Gameplay: Gameplay wise is where the fans are split, it's not an RPG, it's a sidescrolling platformer (a turn off for many fans), I personally like it, but it would have been better as an RPG. You get the choice of 4 different characters, each with unique abilities, Mario (who can make the enviroments 3d), Peach (who can float in the air using her umbrella), Bowser( Who can land harder hits, and breathe fire, and finally Luigi (who can jump very high). Each character will be able to solve puzzles, get through hard to reach areas, and (for bowser) Help in the duel of 100 samurai. Replay Value: There are tons of things to go back and do, for example, The pit of 100 trials in Flipside and Flopside, except it's more like the pit of 300 trials due to going through Flopside's pit twice, and all for what....... TRADING CARDS! It's not really worth it, but it is there for those who like good challenges, there is alsothe duel of 100 samurai (which is self explanatory). Final Verdict: Super Paper Mario is an amazing game (And yes I played the previous 2) and it is just so great. Sadly, the lack of turn based combat is, well...... bad for some people. But overall I give this game a 9/10 It's and amazing game for those who can handle it. That's all for now, and I will see you next time.
Personaly to me this game is kind of better than pm ttyd mainly beacause nintendo took out the stage battles, the stage battle annoyed the heck out of me because people(most likely x nauts) would come from the audience and drop things on you which made me want to elbow drop them in the neck aside from the stage fights being removed this game is good if you are just looking for something to do this game will keep you busy especialyy with the dialouge (which is not a bad thing), if you are trying to understand the plot better also the fact that you can play as peach bowser and luigi makes the game better because everyone has a different power. although i would not recommend this game for children under the age of ten this is a game i would reccomend buying so if you are looking for an awesome paper mario game or just something to keep you busy for a while GET THIS GAME
Super Paper Mario is very much a story-based game. Sometimes it can be frustrating to sit there clicking through dialogue, but in my opinion, it's worth it. You can tell a lot of effort went into the plot and characters. The graphics are simple and add to the 'paper' feel. Even when you flip to 3D, the graphics are essentially still 2-Dimensional. Having to sort through characters and pixls for game play can get a little annoying, and no, it isn't multiplayer, and once you beat the game there's not much more you can do, but in my opinion the pros outweigh the cons.
Ok game but a change for the worse i must say
I'm not someone who gets mad when a series changes up things on one of the games i actually enjoy it as it makes more enjoyable & doesn't bore me.. But this game was a change for the worse The 2d was a cool idea but just everything was way too easy & i felt the game didn't have a long lasting appeal on me. there was less everything then the other games did & i don't think it was a step in the right direction ... deff not worth the 50$ but now you can buy it for 20$ & i think its pretty worth it tbh its not a horrible game but its not a great game.. i feel it has more of an appeal on littler kids
Great game, Amazing story, cool villains
This game was great. It was my first Paper Mario game, and I loved it so much. This isn't as RPG-like as the other Paper Mario games, as it has no turn-based battling, but it retains the basics, like leveling up and HP. Although it does have a lot of cutscenes and talking, if you do take the time to read the dialogue, it makes up what may be one of the best stories I've ever seen in a video game. The villains were incredibly well though-out, which makes the game so much better! A great game, and one I definitely recommend to anyone.
I played it and what the charcters said made me laugh so hard!On gamespot it got a 8.8!Just read the text!You need instructions plus you may end up laughing!Why do people not even read what it says. The only thing I don't like in this game are the creepy enemies.I've got a fear of a enemie called a megabite.It looks like a chomping flying skull!My eyes burn we I see it!It's just TOO ugly! You got to play this game you just gotta. Maybe you'll find the text funny!
A twist on a classic series
If you could not play the first two games becase they were turnbased this is your game. It has amazing handrawn chracters and bacckgrounds. Combines 2d and 3d gamepaly. Has cool cards and helpers to find. This has a good life as well. On the bad side you can not play co-op.I know,I know the first to did not have this feture so why should this one maybe becase this one changed the play style. Okay you get over the no co-op in about a week and just hand the controler to your friend at the and of a level.
I am a paper mario fan and this is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
