An Imaginative Paper Mario Adventure with a Sticky Twist

A sticky situation has never been so fun. There's trouble afoot in the town of Decalburg, where the devious Bowser has disrupted the beloved Sticker Fest by causing the Sticker Comet to explode. Now Royal Stickers and pieces of the comet have been flung far and wide, and it's up to Mario and his ally Kersti to set things right by recovering them. This captivating handheld adventure will have new and experienced fans of the Paper Mario series captivated as they navigate colorful 3D environments, defeat enemies, collect oodles of stickers and items, and use them in a variety of fun ways.

Key Game Features

  • Stickers are the key to this imaginative adventure. Battles are turn-based like in the original Paper Mario game, but instead of an attack menu, Mario whomps on his enemies using a sticker to attack. Stickers not only serve as Mario's attacks, but also help solve puzzles throughout the Paper Mario universe when placed in the correct spots. Stickers can be found and collected from all corners of the world, and the flashier the sticker, the more powerful it is.
  • Mario can also spend coins to use the Battle Spinner, which lets him use up to 3 stickers in one turn if the icons are lined up just right. The Battle Spinner can turn the tide in a difficult battle, so collecting coins through the game to use it is crucial.
  • Paper Mario: Sticker Star players get stronger by beating bosses, finding items and completing side missions for other characters in the game instead of accumulating experience points.
  • As players progress through the game, they'll find and use more powerful stickers to boost Mario's attack power. Players can also find HP-Up hearts to further boost Mario's maximum health.
  • The environments in Paper Mario: Sticker Star come to life in this visually-stunning papercraft world on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. They also contain a wide range of objects such as electric fans, scissors and radiators that can be converted into more stickers, which can then be used to solve puzzles or win battles as Mario maneuvers through each level.

2.0 out of 5 stars It hurts me to say this... February 11, 2013
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Please put down your pitchforks, my friends, and give me a chance to explain. I am no Nintendo hater. Quite the contrary in fact, and when it comes to the Paper Mario series, I have always been a massive fan, whether it's the original, classic Paper Mario, its utterly amazing sequel, The Thousand-Year Door, or the more platformer-centric Super Paper Mario, I love me some Paper Mario games. I can't tell you how excited I was when Sticker Star was announced. I bought my 3DS way back when highly anticipating this game, and even though it went through several delays, I waited patiently. All through development, this was promised to be an entry that would take Paper Mario back to its RPG roots, in every sense, and I couldn't have been more psyched. The first two or three hours in, I really enjoyed my time with Sticker Star. It was a blast and the undeniable Paper Mario charm was off the charts. Then, I started to notice some glaring issues, and they became more glaring with each passing moment until I realized something painful, I don't really like this game all that much. Please, put down your torches and pitchforks and let me explain (and I want to be fair to the game and to you, the readers, so this may be a long, detailed review, I'm warning you right now)...

First off, there's a reason why I was hooked for the first two or three hours. There are a lot of positives in this game's favor. Here are the biggest ones:

- The Presentation. The visuals are spectacular, possibly the best the series has ever had, in fact.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game. Not an RPG November 12, 2012
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In honesty I haven't played a Paper Mario game since the first one on the 64, and a little bit of Thousand Year Door. I Did watch the one on the Wii get played but I never played it myself.

To sum it up, PM3DS is NOT an RPG in the sense that All the other paper Mario games are. If your looking for Exp and levels and stats this is not the game for you. It's more like... like Zelda than an RPG. You have a certain amount of HP that can be increased by finding heart containers (+5 HP Per) that's it. your attacks are based on the Stickers you find and they are all one use attacks. Once you use them you can't use it again ever unless you find the sticker again. Now this may seem horrible but actually it creates a really fun strategy game in a way.

You get X amount of pages of stickers, on average you can fit about 15 per page, some stickers are bigger and take up 4-8 slots on a page so you have to be careful. But these big ones are the strongest attacks in the game and are fun to watch. They are like summons from the Final Fantasy series. I say X amount of pages because you gain more of those as the game goes on.

Now as for the stickers themselves, there are 96 combat stickers and 64 "Thing" stickers (These are the Big stickers, i like to call them Summons). Once you find a summon sticker you can buy it again and use it, however you can only have one of the same summon at a time. But they have more than just uses inside of battle, these stickers can (and some times HAVE to) be used outside of battle to open up pathways or to clear a sandstorm etc... and this is where I think the game gets fun. It doesn't hold your hand at all you have to figure out which stickers to use, where they are hidden and if you chose the wrong sticker you do lose it.

2.0 out of 5 stars It really tried, but... December 11, 2012
Format:Video Game
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a fan of the Paper Mario games since the first one came out for N64. The first two games were exactly what they promised: an entertaining Mario RPG. When the third installment came out for the Wii, I remember being so excited, wondering what the innovation of the Wii would do for the series; however, I ended up being extremely disappointed. If I wanted another platformer, I'd play New Super Mario Bros. So when I heard that they were going back to the old formula for the new 3DS game, needless to say, I was ecstatic. Apparently though, that would just be too good. This game is so repetitive and boring, and not the RPG we were promised. Gone are the partners and items, in favor of stickers (a finite resource) for everything that used to be fun. One of my favorite parts of the original two Paper Mario games was going around to different towns, talking to everyone, doing side quests, and just generally exploring. Sticker Star replaced all of this with a structured level design with very few/limited towns. After playing through until around 3-4, the story basically was at a stand-still, and going around to each level just seemed like a chore. I really wanted to like this game--Paper Mario has never looked better; Paper Mario was made to be on the 3DS. It's just so unfortunate that this game was so boring.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Ugly Step Child June 30, 2013
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
A short summary note before continuing:

"Paper Mario Stick Star is a complete waste of a game and an insult to the Paper Mario franchise. There were more gameplay mechanics removed than there were added, and most of what remained in-game as previous mechanics were altered heavily in an effort to make the game "good", but in effect, turned the game into a stinking crap pile sprayed with that deodorant that I liked the smell of. Mmmm, this crap pile sure does smell good. I wonder what it's like? Well... crap. It's crap."

Also, I'd like to add that I had pre-purchased the game, played most of it, saw the ending without beating it myself, and my opinion is valid in the sense that I know what I'm talking about when comparing the game (and gameplay) to the other, MUCH better games of the series.

Paper Mario 64 and Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door were both great games. They both did the job well, were lots of fun, and did not reduce the amount of "fluff" that made the Paper Mario series so good as it progressed. Super Paper Mario, while technically part of this series, obviously went for a "Super Mario" style of gameplay over the tradition RPG style. This is acceptable. It isn't a true turn-based RPG game.

Paper Mario Sticker Star took most of the fun features that I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into, and then tossed them into the garbage pan. There was hot grease then poured into the can, and then the can was promptly lit of fire, shoved down a 30 foot hole and blown up with a grenade. I feel that the extra measures to destroy the fun weren't justified, Nintendo. They weren't justified at all. Why are you so mean to me?
