Super Paper Mario Review


As anticipated as the second coming, and scoring a laudable 86% from 16 reviews on Metacritic.com

Reviews Summary
So engaging you won't quit without finishing it.
Looks a lot more exciting than it actually is
Zany graphics, hilarious dialog, and first-rate controls
One more reason everyone should own a Wii.
Highly bizarre and amusing story line, undeniable charm
Clever and surprisingly complex puzzles that will challenge and impress you
It feels and looks polished, considerate, and expensive
All the charm and gameplay expertise we expect from the Bros

Definitely looks beautiful and quite a bit interesting, but I just don't feel I could ever spend 60 yoyos on a former Mario RPG turned platform game.

Why not? If it's a good game why on Earth not? I thoroughly enjoyed Paper Mario on the GameCube, so I'll be picking this up without a second thought. The Paper Mario series has to be the funniest and most witty incarnations of the Mario universe.

I'd like to go back to the days of affordable game prices though, 60 yo yos is extreme... hell psp games are costing 49 yo yos.. it's too much to o much too much.....

... man I need a dark mature rated Resident Evil arse kicking bloody game for the Wii..!!!

What happened to freakin' The Sadness ... anyway.. piss.

gnome said...

Sadness, according to it's shadowy developers at least, is still alive.

60 yoyos on a decent but not breathtaking game is way too much. Or as the wise old people say too much, too much ,too muc... ad nauseum...

The Elderly said...

(frantically looking for a dark gothic evil scorch your soul type Wii game....)

nope sorry Deitrix....

(passes Gnome a sick bag....)

too much too much too much....

Mario just plays a second fiddle to Sonic, I'm not a big Mario fan...

The Elderly said...

...thats plumbers for ya, hard to empathise with em....

gnome said...

Unlike Hedgehogs that is. They make pretty good pets...

The Elderly said...

...yes they do.. part from the petting bit.. but you can feed em and watch them sleep ... and..erm you could probably play football with em when they roll themselves up into a ball... if it wasn't for the animal cruelty organisation....

gnome said...

Football isn't cruel... It would be quite absurd for them to have a problem with it...

The Elderly said...

I keep telling em that.. but they keep confiscating the hedgehogs . maybe FIFA could step in....

gnome said...

Nah, they're to busy trying to connect Ukraine to Poland...

The Elderly said...

didnt' hitler try that?
