I can't believe some people are complaining about some dialogue. I've played this game three times and I read every single word each time (except the Sammer Guys, they were kinda boring). And if you're not a reader like me, it's really easy to skip. If you guys would grow up and read a little, you'd probably find that you really like the story of the game.
I hope people won't see this game and think it might be fun, read the reviews, and decide not to get it. I really think that you'd love this game if you gave it a chance and got over the dialogue.
This is the best Mario game I've ever played in my LIFE! I was so sad when I mailed it back the other day... I'm def going to buy this game when I get a chance!! This is one of those games you need to have!! It's games like this that keeps the Wii on in my house!!
There is alot of conversation in the beginning of the game... but it's nothing you can't get thru with rapid tapping of the '2' button. The storyline behind the game is EXCELLENT though... the features, music, gameplay... ALL of IT! Don't rent it... BUY IT!!

I played Paper Mario 2 The Thousand Year Door on Gamecube all the way through three times. It was one of my favorite GCN games. I was looking forward to this one quite a bit. However, this one seems to lack the humor the last one had. I haven't laughed quite as much and the humor seems a little too focused at young teens.
I love the mechanics of this game. Switching into 3D was a genius idea and allows for so much more expansive gameplay. All of the power-ups are really cool.
The downside of this game is that some of the levels are just annoying to play and you can't wait until you're done. Like the outer-space level. Also, you don't equip items anymore and leveling up is basically gone. So the aspect of RPG is almost gone from this game. I'd say it's about 10% RPG where it used to be 60%. It's more of a platformer now.
It's a great game. If you are a paper mario fan and you go into this looking for paper mario RPGesque gameplay, you'll be a little let down. The game is fun in itself for what it is, but with what I expect a paper mario game to be like, this just isn't paper mario. Maybe they should have called the previous ones Paper Mario RPG? I like that Mario RPG style.
