Platform-jumping, brick-smashing, goomba-stomping Mario adventures are back! Mario and Luigi are enjoying a lazy afternoon at their house when they hear the terrible news: Princess Peach has been kidnapped! The two brothers head straight for Bowser's castle to get her back, but Bowser is just as surprised about Peach's kidnapping as they are. At that moment, a strange top-hatted villain warps in and abducts everyone but Mario. The mysterious villain then forces Peach and Bowser to get married, creating a rift of dark energy that threatens to tear the universe apart! Only Mario can save the day...but he can't do it alone. What at first glance appears to be your classic 2-D adventure ripped straight from the stylized pages of the Paper Mario universe, soon turns into an hysterical 3-D action game possible only on Wii! Early on, the 2-D side-scrolling game play appears to be reminiscent of New Super Mario Bros. But as soon as Mario learns the ability to flip between dimensions, players will be constantly flipping between 2-D and 3-D to pass perilous pits, find hidden coins and passages, and talk to characters who are visible only in 3-D. Bottom Line:Super Paper Mario's gameplay and smooth controls, plus its innovative 2D-to-3D effect, make for one of the best platformers in several years. Its adventurous anthems seem to have the uncanny ability of pulling players back in a quest for mastery. It's a Mario title anyone can play.
This review is from: Nintendo Selects: Super Paper Mario for Nintendo Wii
Pros: As usual, this is a great addition to the Paper Mario series.
Great gameplay and overall very creative use of the environment.
Some very hilarious moments within the game and story, as to be expected in the Paper Mario series.
Cons: Rather short overall.
Some chapters are really dragged out with backtracking used to hide the fact that it's not as long as it feels.
Not an RPG like the previous Paper Mario titles.
The music is generic and nowhere near as good as the epicness that was in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
Other Thoughts: It's a good game. And definitely worth this price for something new and unopened.
It is a little disappointing that it's not like the other Paper Mario games, but then again, the series was at it's best with The Thousand Year Door, and I don't think they will ever be able to top that.
This game, like all of them, does have some really fun moments, and those are the moments that make it worth the buy.
