So much more than war...

Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: It's Mario on the Wii!, memorable characters and story, great level design, turning 3D is really neat, decent length

The Bad: ...It's another Mario, missing RPG elements makes things easier, story is too predictable, even though the graphics are nice they feel old, not extremely challenging, text reading is really annoying

The first two things about the new Paper Mario is that Nintendo chucked the RPG elements and, in turn, made it more accessible for casual gamers by bringing Mario back to his roots with the good 'ol platforming. The second thing is that you can now use Mario and flip into 3D for a certain amount of time to find new paths, solve puzzles, and find new items. The story here though is it's strong point. Mario has to, once again, save the world from a new minion known as Count Bleck. Mario has to get 7 Pure Hearts to counter act all worlds being sucked in by The Void. Along with you are the 4 heroes Mario, Peach, Bowser, and Luigi. Each character has their special attributes to solve puzzles etc. The graphics are crisp, sharp, and refreshing yet they still feel old and they don't push the Wii's limits one bit. Also, since they RPG elements were cut the strategy has been taken out and may turn Paper Mario vets off. Also, the story is to predictable too early on. Even though the story can be beaten in 15-20 hours it still feels somewhat short. No matter though if you love Mario or just want a platformer pick this gem up!
