This game is great for a one time play, it gives a whole new dimension to a platform / RPG game,, literally!!
This game is great to look at, you will never get tired of just looking at this game!! It has sharp, clever, funny laugh out loud moments of scripting, with a whole bunch of different bad guys to fight!! The worlds are fun to explore and the puzzles do some times have you stuck for a while until you remember to FLIP!!
That's when this game comes into its own, this 3rd dimension of game play offers a whole new exciting way to play, you may think you're stuck FLIP! Want to get across a impassable gorge? FLIP! Need to escape a bunch of bad guys,, FLIP!! (and then pray that some aren't waiting for you in that view!) With the addition of the pixels and other convention Mario tools (the drain pipes) this game will keep you exploring levels to find additional items, and Pixels!!
However,,,, the dialogue for the story is way too long!! I mean it will just keep going and going and going!! See what I mean?! The Boss battles are no different from the normal fights apart from being a bit longer, and one of the few real challenges in this game is the pit 100 trials!!! Also I know it's called Super Paper Mario, but you hardly ever use the other characters as most of the time you need to go into 3D to get past obstacles.
