Un-frickin'-believable. The best Nintendo game since Ocarina of Time.

The Bad: Come again?
Short Review: If you don't have this game, go out and buy it. Now. I mean NOW. Drop everything, grab your wallet and go. If you have a car, take it. Find the nearest stockist and buy it. Then play it as soon as possible. It's that good.
I'm sorry, I got a little carried away there. But, seriously, this game is that good. Rarely do people say this sort of thing, but this sort of game deserves it. Nintendo, for all their quirks, brought out this absolute gem of an RPG. Now, let's delve!
First off: The graphics. The first thing you'll notice is the colourful world of the world of Mario. Now, you may be thinking it looks 'babyish' and to a certain point, it sort of does. However, you soon get used to the look, as the fluid sprites and humourous animations bring light to your little GBA.
Now, let me introduce you to something quite enchanting indeed. The battles. Sure, they're turn-based, with the occasional item. But their biggest feature is the button system. If someone attacks you, you can jump on their head or hit them with a hammer. You can add to attacks by hitting the correct button at the right time, and you can do incredible damage with Bros. items, the new version of the Bros. attacks.
Okay, I've gone over the game. Now let's go over the story: It's the Mushroom Kingdom, and Mario is called to visit Princess Peach after an emergancy. Aparently, an evil witch called Cackletta from the Beanbean Kingdom has stolen Peach's voice and replaced all her words with explosives. Hilarity ensues.
Okay, I may not be saying much, but take my word for it: This game is good. Very, very good. So go out now. Take my word for it. Go buy it.
