Prepare to enter a whole new dimension with Super Paper Mario on Wii! The planet's favourite plumber returns in the third Paper Mario game, bringing a different perspective to the series as he calls on old friends - and foes - to help him tackle a mysterious enemy from a bizarre parallel universe. Lead Mario in his quest to overthrow the evil Count Bleck before he succeeds in creating a Chaos Heart and bringing about the end of the world as we know it, playing as Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser along the way as you free them from captivity.

With the Wii Remote held sideways like the traditional NES controller, Mario's quest starts off as a classic platform adventure - but appearances can be deceiving! With a press of the A Button, your perspective on the world changes from 2D to 3D, and the seemingly flat worlds gain hidden depth, with plenty of secrets to be discovered.

An involving mixture of RPG and platform elements, Super Paper Mario offers a huge adventure spread over eight eye-catching environments with something new to discover around every corner. Enlist the aid of Pixl sidekicks along your path to gain special skills. By pointing the Wii Remote at the screen for example, you can get secret information and reveal hidden objects along the way!
  • Guide Mario through a parallel universe by flipping between 2D and 3D worlds and use the unique skills of Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser.
  • Lose yourself in the wacky storyline as you make your way through eight beautifully designed environments crammed with platform action, flavoured with RPG elements.
  • Use the pointing function of the Wii Remote to discover hidden secrets.
  • Learn special skills and collect and save items for use later in your adventure.

Mario makes his RPG return in the sequel to the exception Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door, on the Game Cube. Personally, I would rate The Thousand Year Door as one of the best console games I have ever played, so anticipation was extremley high for this game.

There are two major changes that are seen in Super Paper Mario. The first is the combat system. Previously, Mario and co would fight in turn based battles, taking it in turns until one either you, or the enemy was defeated. This has now been replaced with the traditional 2D platformer style combat system of either jumping on an enemy, or using a weapon against them. In some ways, this is a very good change, it certainly makes the game easier for newcomers to RPG's to get to grips with, it also makes the easier battles against enemies such as Goombas a lot less frustrating as you no longer have to go through the motions of enetering the battle just to wipe them with one blow, but, negatively, it does make many battles rather easy, especially against the end of level bosses and Count Blacks minions.

The next change is the way the game world works. No longer does it use the pop up book style worlds in The Thousand Year Door, but more of a flat colouring book style world. The game worlds aren't as fun to explore as they do feel a lot more restricted in where you go, but when using Mario, pressing the A button flips the world from 2D to 3D, revealing many hidden pathways and items that can be used. It does make for some more interesting puzzles as you will have to regularly flip between the 2nd and 3rd dimension in order to progress, but at the same time, it does make them a little on the easy side. They way you progress through worlds also seems a bit lacking. To go from one area to another, you have to go through doors. To me, this makes the each area feel detatched from the rest, usin pipes would make the world feel more complete.

Mario is no longer accomponied by a Goomba, Koopa Troopa, Bob-omb etc, but instead, Peach, Bowser and Luigi accompany him. You would think this would a good change, and in away it is, but for the most part, they all seem rather pointless. The truth is, that even though they all have their own special ability, these rarely ever come into use, so most of the time, you will find Mario much more useful. Mario is also accomponied by some srange creatures called Pixls. Like Peach and co, these all offer Mario abilities that help him progress throughout the game, and whilst they are without doubt, much more useful then the other characters, they lack the charm and just don't seem to be as imaginitive.

For the most part, the levels are pretty good. The Crags was possibly my favourite, whilst the third chapter was possibly the funnies. Sadly this can't be said for the Space level and Sammer land. The space level gets a bit annoying as you seem to do an awful lot of backtracking, whilst Sammerland is possible the most uneventful level in Mario history. You basically, fight a battle, walk through a door, fight another battle, walk through another door and so on. As I'm sure you can imagine, this soon gets tiresome.

For the most part, Super Paper Mario is a highly enjoyable game. It does have it's frustrations, but they don't usually get in the way of the enjoyment of the game. There is a lot of text, so if you don't like reading much, this game probably would be better left alone, but if this doesn't bother you, and you are a Mario fan, then there are a lot of gags in here that will make you chuckle. Hardcore RPG fans may also be put off as crossing the genre with 2D platformers makes it easier, and makes the game more accessible for everyone.

 Worth the wait!

Thanks Play for delivering my game a day early! I have been waiting for this one to come out since its American release! It doesn't disappoint. There is quite a lot of reading to do and thats a little bit tedious but once you get going in the levels its a really cool game! The graphics are basic which is the style of Paper Mario but loading levels and watching them being coloured in is fun! I'm glad they have got rid of the turn based battles for every enemy although I am only a few levels in so far and have not faced any bosses yet so I'm not sure if turn based battles are used then. The 3D mode is a lot of fun and is a great addition to the game. The only reason for 4 stars not 5 is the amount of text at the beginning of the game. Great game so far!!

 Pretty darn good.

I recieved the game today (Friday 14th) and I am pretty pleased with it. The game is very clever and on multiple occasions has left me amazed at the features this game includes.
I've only completed a few chapters at the moment, but I thoroughly enjoing it so far.

The levels are very well planned and I do enjoy the RPG-style points and levels system in the game. It makes you feel like you are really working towards something.

There is alot of reading in this game, which at times can be a tad annoying because all you want to do is play, but apart from that I give it an 8/10.

I recommend you buy this game.

(And a big Thanks to Play for sending it so quickly)

 I wouldnt bother!!!!

The game is pants. It tries to pull wise cracks at itself and some of the videos are boring, long winded and will send you to sleep.
Save your money, or get something else.

 Great Game.... But

I bought this game based on some really good reviews i read.

The idea of the game is really good and i had fun playing. i liked how you can swap characters and choose your pixl (litle sidekicks) and interact by fliping the Wii remote so it is pointing at the screen to uncover hiding objects etc.

I gave the game 4 stars because even though there are over 8 levels it just seemed too straight forward. everything fitted together and you could play the game even if your half asleep because you won't get stuck.

Also only stars due the RIDICULOUS amount of text. every little thing has text to go with it and it starts to get a bit anoying after a while. BUT you kind of let it go because you have fun with the rest of the game.

I recommend this game because i did really enjoy it. but don't expect to play a difficult game filled with suspense, because you won't find any in this.
