I am a huge fan of Mario and the entire franchise series!! But this game right here...too lengthy, talk too much, challenges are too frustrating and I have been on this game for two months, almost three and still dissatisfied!! I haven't even completed the entire game. I don't care at this point whether I defeat it or not!! Not happy!!!!

Bad

Not for adults, a lot of hand holding/tutorials

This is clearly a game for kids, and as an adult I couldn't finish it. Way too much hand holding and tutorials. The story was just okay, but I couldn't get very deep due to the constant tutorials and text boxes popping up during every single "screen" change. I put 5 hours into it, and probably played about 2 of that. The rest was mashing A to get on with it.

Good

Not particularly dreamy

To my disappointment, I'd have to say that "Dream Team" is the weakest of the Mario & Luigi series of RPGs. The graphics, music, and 3D are all excellent, and it's got some interesting ideas overall, but, as I played through the game, I found that I was underwhelmed and irritated more often than I was impressed. The pacing is very slow, and there's A LOT of talking and tutoring. In this particular regard, it's a worse offender than any other Mario RPG. By the time the support characters finally piped down a bit and let me just play the game, I was well into my fourth hour! Not only that, but the story and characters lack the charm, whimsy, and humor of previous M&L games. The new villain, in particular, is extraordinarily boring. I found many of the late-game boss battles to be annoying because of some gimmick or other that was being pushed, particularly the reliance on tilting the 3DS to steer something.

All in all, I can't justify giving "Dream Team" less than a 7, but I can't go any higher than that either.
