Nothing will ever capture the magic of Paper Mario for the N64. However, Paper Mario Sticker Star is a very enjoyable handheld version of the series. After the terrible Super Paper Mario for the Wii, this was a very welcome addition to the series.
I wish there were more than two towns in the entire game, and the towns that are in the game are very limited. I miss having companion characters. The plot is seriously lacking.
However, if you don't try to compare this game to its predecessors, you may find it to be a very entertaining, enjoyable Mario game with replay value. I have played it twice now and really enjoy it.
They replaced the item/attack/special attack/ menu with a single menu of collectible consumables for your attacks and items. This is fun and interesting. However to progress in the game you have to find hidden exits to levels about 30% of the time. I found this irritating and got stuck.
