Holy crap — did you guys know that we’re only a week away from the release of Paper Mario: Sticker Star?
Polygon has a review up that paints it in an less-than-fantastic light, but then again, I came across a mediocre review for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door recently in an old issue of Game Informer. A 6.75 for one of my favorite games of all time?!
I’ll just say that I’m ignoring the review score and what’s actually written in Polygon’s review. To me, it sounds exactly like what I’d expect to find in a TRUE Paper Mario game and I cannot wait:
"Paper Mario: Sticker Star’s few problems are written into its very structure as an amalgam of genres. If you go in expecting an RPG, you’re apt to be disappointed by simplified battles and stats. If you’re in it for the puzzle solving, the frequent combat breaks may get on your nerves. But if you can accept those conditions, Sticker Star has something special buried beneath its covers. Nintendo tends toward smooth, straight-forward design, but Sticker Star is the opposite of that. It’s a flawed, offbeat, endearing little game."
