Amazing. Hilarious. Insightful. Unbelievably perfect. (I gave it a ten, so expect some big compliment words.) This game was incredible. For four reasons:(1) Bowser was PLAYABLE. I learned a lot about him because of playing as him.(2) The controls were easy to execute. I had a hard time with the previous two, so this game was a relief.(3) The game's golden humor was shown in more ways than one. I laughed more at this game than I did at the previous two.(4) The special moves not only wowed me, but made me bust a gut. My favorite was the snack basket. Plus, thanks to this game, Bowser has become one of my absolute favorite characters. And guess what? I ended up BUYING it instead of just renting. This is an exceptional game, and I recommand it to all mario lovers. BUY THIS GAME. (!!!!)
It's not an action-adventure, it's a mediocre RPG.

I rented this one because it's labeled "Action Adventure" and the screenshots show some classic Mario action (or so I thought). Really, it's a slow-paced RPG title minus the epic storyline, character development, and strategy elements.
If you enjoyed the Mario RPG games, you'll be only slightly disappointed with this one - it features lots of interesting bad guys to fight and some funny dialog, but serves up a less-interesting world to adventure in than you're probably expecting.
