If you haven't played Paper Mario Games the 1,000 Year Door or Bowser's Story, you should, if you have then you know how fantastic and fun these games are. This installment to the series is even better still! I'm not even finished and am so so happy and excited to pick it up each time. (I also recommend a 3DXL for any of the great 3DS games, what a difference!) You will not be disappointed, this game is definite must play. Better even than Ocarina of Time, Mario, Super Mario 3D Land and New Super Mario 2!

Poor reviews seem to lack perspective in one of two areas or both....
A) Strategy. You ran out of stickers? Never found the rare item seller/sticker creator room? Don't know how to organize your sticker book, buy or pick up new stickers or stickers specifically for those situations? Then that's you... not the game. This game is another in a long step away from games that make things too easy on the player. Can't handle it? Don't play games anymore.
Good edition to the Paper Mario series. Not great. I'm a huge Paper Mario fan, but the sticker attacks function is a new one that I'm not a big fan of. I played this to the end, great music and visuals, but you'll probably find yourself avoiding battles as you will get no partners and ALWAYS fight more than one enemy in 99% of the battles meaning you're almost always going to take damage in any battle. The "thing" stickers are weird and you never know exactly what will work out or just wont. Worth paying, but for Paper Mario fans only. Even then it doesn't quite work. It's difficult from the beginning. Huge, I mean huuuge game for the 3DS. Check it out. It's cool, but it starts to get annoying and repetitive.
