    Paper Jam Bros truly is a gem. Lengthy, rewarding, full of surprises, it manages to capture both spirits, the Mario & Luigi and the Paper ones. Don't miss this game.

    All in all, Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam is still a fun RPG that fans of the previous game will enjoy.

    Mario & Luigi Paper Jam is not perfect but definitively is a solid and accessible RPG with all the humor and charming that only Alpha Dream can do with the Super Mario franchise. A solid combat system and a few improvements to the classic formula make this crossover as an enjoyable trip.

    The usual, beautiful Mario & Luigi. The innovations introduced by this chapter are enough to infuse a bit of variety to the adventure. For the rest, it is the usual great mix of action, platform and RPG.

    Mario & Luigi Paper Jam Bros is a nice game that should delight any Nintendo fan. The combat is well balanced but some activities are very boring and you feel that devs had to fill in the gaps.

    Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is just as wacky and enjoyable as any other past iteration of the series, but it fails to change things up in a meaningful way for longtime fans.

    Because creativity comes at the cost of cohesion, the whole adventure turns into one irritating mini-game.

The gameplay is still fun, the music is still great (maybe even my favorite soundtrack in the series), and it gave Paper Mario the treatment that Sticker Star wishes it could give. Now, if only the story was a little better... Expand

While it doesn't bring any new characters or story line like most RPG titles in the series, it does bring an excellent battle system with epic music to enjoy listening to, and it's fun for anybody at any age. The two problems I had with the game is the excessive Paper Toad Hunts, and the game's too short. But I'd highly recommend it. Expand

It has great gameplay, the paper characters blend great, it's another M&L game. However the world seems bland, the jokes, something the series is known for are not the strongest here, but overall it's a great game. Recommended. Expand

    It's either a dumbing down of Mario Luigi with the paper theme: gimmick version, or it's a straight insult to paper mario, Take your pick.It's either a dumbing down of Mario Luigi with the paper theme: gimmick version, or it's a straight insult to paper mario, Take your pick. Either way, it's another milestone in Nintendo's destruction of all pre-established mario spin-offs. Goodbye Mario sports, rpgs, parties, etc. Expand
