    It is ok, but once you have been playing for a while you begin to notice that it seems like a gba game. I have alot of gripes. The dialogue isn't funny Poor inventory system battle system isnt all that fun Also, don't be fooled by the fact that this is a mario game. It isn't terrible but its not good. Not all games with mario are good! If you like mario and luigi, you wont It is ok, but once you have been playing for a while you begin to notice that it seems like a gba game. I have alot of gripes.

Not all games with mario are good! If you like mario and luigi, you wont like this because its worse than that gba game. Play that instead. Even if its for a little kid who doesnt notice flaws, it will be too hard for them. Buy something good. Don't be fooled by Mario. Those reviewers just slap a high score on all things mario. Expand

    A sequel to one of my favorite games of all time, Paper mario 64

    Ok first of all, the game looks ugly as **** Just look at the beautiful art style of Paper mario 64 and look at ttyd just ugly. The battle system is good but i miss the stars from the original game that talked and you got them after every chapter. The stage for battles is very dull, no awesome bakground for your

    The stage for battles is very dull, no awesome bakground for your location is a huge dissapoitment.

    The game just kills so much **** that i loved from the first one, the partners are worse and more.

    Paper mario ttyd gets a 7/10 for still having a fun experience.

    The mix of 2D characters on a 3D plane not only looks appealing, the gameplay that's designed around the concept (Mario's transformation skills in particular) is a creative fusion of art and design. [Nov 2004, p.105]
  3. And it'll soak up far more of YOU than "Mario & Luigi" or the other Mario RPGs ever did, too. It's easy to believe you could spend as long with this as you could a decent-length Final Fantasy title.
