    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Nintendo hit another home run

    i was a little bit worried about buying paper mario 2. i saw the pictures (and im not a fan of cel shading very much) and clips and it looked interesting.. but not my cup of tea.

    this game is simply amazing it combines platform and RPG elements in a bowl.. cooks it for a hour on a low heat and you get the perfect meal that is paper mario 2.

    aside from the child-like graphics the plot is fantastic, fighting superb and the comedy is spot on.

    i count myself as a experienced gamer and its taken me just over 49 hours to finish the game completely (including all mini games etc) now thats what i call value for money. this is the longest RPG ive played since Final Fantasy 7.

    Good Points -
    Good Story
    Good Control System
    Big Lastability
    Very Innovative

    Bad Points -
    Music isnt perfect. but works ok
    sometimes repetitive.. but most games are

    i reccomend this to any nintendo fan, platform lover or RPG player.. all will be happy with this game

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    paper mario 2- the thousand year door

    sequal to the original paper mario released during the dying days of the n64 so not many people got the play it but they missed out. the original was great as is TTYD. this game sees mario in an rpg format i.e. turn based battles , but its not just an ordinary rpg during the turn based battles you actually feel involved as you have to use certain buttons to make your attacks more powerful. the story is that peach has sent mario a treasure map then has suddenly gone missing, mario rushes to the city of rogueport (where the map says to go) to try and find peach. you mission in the game is to find the crystal stars which opens the thousand year door and get the treasure and find peach. to do this mario travels all over this new world to find the stars with the help of new partners to use in fights. this game is an essential buy if you have a gamecube.

    Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door has almost austere graphics in their lack of detail in part (the sewers for instance) The levels do have a distinct art style though (the striking black and white of Boggly Woods, interspersed with colour for instance). The feel of the game is a bit like the SNES Super Mario World made into an RPG for people who don't normally like RPGs (like me). Battles are fun to play, on a mock theatre stage, if a bit annoying that they're sometimes difficult to avoid (I suppose they have to drag the game out).

    I haven't played the N64 Paper Mario but I understand, from reading reviews, that this game doesn't differ that much from it and the intermissions between chapters are the weakest part of the game (where you control Princess Peach or Bowser for instance).

    Some people who've played some early 90s graphic adventure games (such as the Monkey Island series) or Rare's Conker's Bad Fur Day on the N64 might agree that this game gives you a smile but the script isn't as sharp or cuttingly funny.

    Nevertheless, the puzzles are fun and the game has an atmosphere of it's own. The number of new powers needed to uncover previously unreachable places reminded me of Metroid Prime in a way.

    In some ways, this game is 5 star- it's only the lack of replayability once you've seen each new area that brings it down- and the script itself won't compensate for that.
