Super Paper Mario
Platform: Nintendo Wii
ESRB Rating: E for Everyone
Story: Princess Peach has been captured (Again)! Except this time, it wasnt Bowser! In Super Paper Mario, you take control of multiple different characters to save not only the Princess, but all dimensions from a strange yet very evil Count. You must use your new dimension flipping powers to save everyone from this evil villain!
Graphics: Super Paper Mario keeps the classic side-scrolling Mario feel, but than allows you to flip into another dimension, and view the world from a totally new, Three-Dimensional angle. When thinking 3D, you'd usually imagine an actual person-like feel. This isn't really the case here. Characters look like pieces of paper, so much so that there is even an ability to turn sideways, making you completely invisible.
Sound: Each world has a unique set of music that matches the surroundings, you can expect that classic Eight-bit Mario music in a level, but than a more rock-based track in the next. Most music in the game, however, keeps that classic Mario feel of making you move fast and keeping you upbeat.
Controls: Most Wii games have annoying controls that take a long while to master, this isn't the case here. The game utilizes only the Wii remote, not the nunchuck, and the entire game can be played using only five buttons. The game rarely uses the remotes motion capabilities, except for when charging up powerful special attacks.
Extras: On your journey, you may sometimes find a playing card with a character or enemy on it. There are over a hundred of these cards spread throughout the world, hidden from plain view, but can be found if you pay close attention to your surroundings.
Overall Rating: 9 out of 10
