FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

I am writing this review in 2006 looking back at my good times with Paper Mario. This is truly one of the greatest RPGs I have ever had the fortune to play! Unlike most modern games Paper Mario was not abducted with a violent plot involving swords, guns, or anything of that matter. The game is perfectly kid friendly. Why? Because jumping on people is what I would call violence.

The game starts with Luigi and Mario our best plumber pals receiving an invitation to Peach’s party down at the castle. When you arrive at the castle through a short video you take over from there. It ends up that Bowser takes the princess and kidnaps her while razing the castle into the sky. Mario must then find the star crystals to save Peach but I will not spoil anymore of the plot.

The fighting, music, and graphics are simply stunning for this time period! In battle you can select moves and power up moves as well as use any of the allies who have come to help you. It may be turn based but I can tell you I have never had more fun! Mario meets many characters throughout the game including a koopa and a mushroom who aren’t so mean! The graphics blend into the game perfectly. Everything is like paper as the title suggests and it gives you a truly unique feel. Not a pixel is out of place and this game could have very well been on Gamecube and had perfect fitting graphics if it wanted to! Paper Mario also offers a twist of the traditional Mario music that is delightful. It flows perfectly in the environment and is irresistible. To some it up Paper Mario is practically flawless other than the puzzles which can get very annoying. But if you just beat them quickly I can promise you that you will have fun playing this game.

Two paper-cut thumbs WAY up!
