In a break from the two previous Paper Mario titles, Super Paper Mario blends the action and RPG genres with an emphasis on the action, instead of the RPG. I've...

Tight Controls ; Innovative Gameplay ; Awesome Art Direction ; Mustache Jokes ; An RPG Light On The RPG, Heavy On The Action

Platform Element Could Be More Challenging ; Story Could Be A Little Deeper ; Would Benefit From HD Visuals (though I can't fault the game itself, since the Wii itself isn't hi-def)

Spiritual successor to the 2D classics ; Highly innovative ; Stylish visuals

Game freezing glitch in the PAL version ; Hub area can plod ; Doesn't take full advantage of Wii

Super Paper Mario was originally in development for the GameCube, but due to how popular the Wii became and how the Game Cube was fading out, Nintendo decided to scrap the GameCube version altogether rather than have two versions as with Twilight...

The Wii is less than six months old, but it already managed to get an array of quality titles under its belt. As games these days get overdramatic, having a lot eye candy or cramming as much action as possible, it's nice to play a simple, lighthearted...
