It's fun from the start to finish but it is also very short. It's around 10 to 12 hours total your first time through. The graphics are decent but look more like GBA quality than DS. The battle system is the same as the previous game (all real time execution of move) and never seems to get old.
I loved this game. It had fun gameplay. Definitly plenty of replay value. It gave me about twenty hours of continuous gameplay. The movie sequences were funny, the story line was great and it kept to the style of the first game. I give the game a 10, for its great gameplay, excellence graphics, for a portable, and the fun it gave. I hope that Nitendo makes another game in this series.
First off, love the battle system. However, it's still not on par with the paper mario battle system
Another thing is the stylus never really comes into play, which i think could have been used in some points. I would have adored that. Game's really well paced and never gets repetitive or boring because of the unique battle system.
This is deffinitely one of the many great games for the DS.
