Super Paper Mario (Wii)

Strengths: Inventive 2D/3D gameplay, great platformer action, nice RPG elements, good graphics.

Weakness: Lots of text to read

Super Paper Mario takes the 2D platformer concept and turns it 45 degrees to the side. The game plays mostly in 2D mode, like the previous Super Mario titles, though at times, it's turned into a 3D platformer for a short time. The 3D mode allows for getting past issues that can't be solved in 2D mode. The game looks pretty good, though there's an immense amount of text to read through as the game...

Paper Mario Super

Strengths: Fun story and characters

Weakness: Some backtracking is tedious

Super Paper Mario is a thoroughly excellent platformer with RPG elements. The plot is coherent, the characters are charming and funny, and the puzzles are clever and interesting. Highly recommended.

Paper Platforming

Strengths: Witty dialogue, great platforming elements

Weakness: Occasionally doesn't know if it's an RPG or platformer.

Super Paper Mario is an excellent GameCube->Wii conversion. While clearly not a Wii title initially, the added functionality of the Wiimote does not detract from the experience. Intelligent Systems (or is it Treehouse?) once again delivers a fine localization with some of the funnier dialogue I've read in a game in some time. At times the game drags due to an excess of the same, but the 2 and 3D...

Super Paper Mario is an excellent game for the Wii!

Strengths: Fun RPG-lite elements in a Mario platformer

Weakness: Heavy amounts of text dialogue

I thoroughly enjoyed Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, and was eagerly looking forward to this game. It did not disappoint. The ability to switch between 2D and 3D is used well for the game's various puzzles. Unlike Thousand Year Door, where combat was turn-based, here the action is of the more traditional mario-platform variety -- jump on the monster's heads, shoot fireballs, or throw items....

Mario Is Back And This Time He's Looking To

Strengths: Exploration, Innovative

Weakness: Nothing I Could Think of

Mario is Back again in paper form. Super Paper Mario is an action adventure game with role playing elements added into the mix. Unlike the previous two Paper Mario games which had turn based battles systems like your typical RPGs you will be moving around in a 2D world which you will attack enemies to defeat them within that environment much like any of the old Super Mario Bros side scrollers....
