Super Paper Mario

 

The Paper Mario series is quite an interesting one. The original Paper Mario stood as a faux sequel for Super Mario RPG. At this point Mario was still new to the world of Role Playing, and Paper Mario for the N64 was just the ticket he needed to worm...

A great Platformer/RPG with undeniable charm that you're sure to enjoy.

Besides having the immediate ability to play as Mario and his fairy friend Tippi, players are eventually given other characters, new Pixls, and new abilities. Pixls serve as the main ability upgrade system. Tippi is similar to Navi in The Legend of...

You'll flip over Nintendo's latest game for the Wii.

Super Paper Mario really benefits from excellent level design. The "Oh wow, that's really cool!" moments never end from start to finish. There are some really awesome and mindtwisting levels that simply must be played to understand how devious they...

Super Paper Mario Review

 

The Mario franchise has seen such a wide variety of games in its 20-plus years of existence. Our first exposure to Mario came in the form of him doing battle with a giant monkey in the Donkey Kong series. Sure, we didn't know him as Mario at that...

Overall, Super Paper Mario is a fun experience. However, don't come into it expecting a pure platformer – there are multiple RPG elements here that can interrupt the flow a bit. The whole 3D flipping aspect, for example – it is a neat idea, but I feel...

Nintendo sure has a way with games and Super Paper Mario is an interesting twist on an old genre.

If you've never entered the universe of Mario, or even if you already have, picking this game up is a no-brainer and besides, with a dearth of Wii titles coming for a few months, what else are you going to play?

Kicking Koopa's

Super Paper Mario chronicles the story of Mario being given the heavy responsibility of saving the world from total destruction. 1,500 years ago, the Ancients wrote two books. One being the Dark Prognosticus, the other being the Light Prognosticus. The...

Mario straddles 2-D and 3-D worlds but misses the fun.

The game's best feature involves hitting the A button to transform these 2-D wonderlands into 3-D, offering a unique perspective. This feature adds depth to an otherwise boring game. While adventuring, Mario will invariably come to a dead end in which...

Mazza's first outing on the Wii has enough to fill the void until Super Mario Galaxy lands.

Clean visuals; great music; cool blend of RPG and action elements; funny story

A little on the easy side; not much replay value

Is Super Paper Mario the second coming of platforming? Well, no, but it is still a very funny, enjoyable game.

Emotional rollercoaster with plenty of humor ; Clever 2-D / 3-D game mechanics ; Crazy art style</i ; Excellent and appropriate soundtrack

Light on the run-and-jump ; Unwarranted password-based "puzzles ; Forced searching of overlooked crannies

Chapter two isn't all that great, but the part you're at reminds me of 2-D Zelda puzzles (from Adventures of Link and Link's Awakening).
