When I heard about this game, I was stoked.
Paper Mario (1) kinda invented the whole series. No biggie. Thus, it did alot right and few things wrong.
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year door was amazing. It took the first game, gave it a better story, a little improvement of gameplay and...Flat humor.
Yeah, yeah. I'll be sitting in the corner.
Super Paper Mario...Well, it tried to take Super Mario bros. and stick RPG Elements to it. Add to this a Mission-based game and it...Still worked! The Story was amazing, the game looked and sounded great and the gameplay was atmost okay.
But as I said - it worked.
And Paper Mario Sticker Star...Took away the awesome story. Alright, we'll get something cool in exchange right? Gameplay? Yeah. Actually this is Paper mario 1 but without the cool fighting. We got Items! ...Only items.
This doesn't work. Bosses can be killed easily by using 1 huge item and if you don't have that specific one...Well, just spam the other ones and the Boss dies. The end.
So...Shallow gameplay, a bad story...What DOES it have? Nice visuals and the jazziest Soundtrack ever.
Does this make up for having nothing else? No.
This game is a disappointment and I hate it for taking the place of what could've been another great Story.
6/10. From my side, that is.
