There is no need to rent this one it is 10 times better then the other Paper Marios. I did not play the N64 version but if this did not have so much reading they could add more chapters and this would be a 9. I will buy it! Every Nintendo title is Award Winning!

In this game you explore a 2-D classic world, just like you would in super mario bros. that was a hit for the NES. Except now Nintendo has added the extra cool 3-d flipping control. You must use it at times to explore and area to find a hidden trap or pipe that will lead you closer to rescuing peach and bowser. The game looks and plays fantastic. The only downfall that I find with the game is that there is little use of the unique wii controller, besides pointing it and shaking it, that pretty much wraps it up. I just wish Nintendo would have used a little bit more ideas in that area. Other than that, this game is going to go down as yet another Classic Hit Mario Game that people will be talking about for years to come. A must own for wii owners.
I was a huge fan of the N64 Paper Mario and then the Gamecube's Paper Mario:The Thousand Year Door, but this might be better than both of those. I really like The Thousand Year Door but it was just too long and I felt liked Super Paper Mario's length was perfect. At first it feels really weird going back and forth from 2-D to 3-D but it really is an excellent improvement. The story line is pretty strong, the "weapons" or as they are called Pixls are a great addition and multiple playable characters appear again. The game isn't difficult, the only really hard part is finding out where to go. Not very long either, it took me about 15 hours. Overall, I highly recommend renting or buying it because it is a very worthwhile game with plenty of memorable moments and characters.
