While fun, exciting and entertaining, if the turn based battle system isnt re introduced i wont buy the next game
it seems jumping and using 'pixls' is all you can use, unless your bowser. The always helpful and interesting sidekicks were scratched and replaced.
Although it wasnt all that bad the storyline was nothing compared to the others, like in the Thousand Year Door, while there were 7 stars to memory, you didnt just go there, you had to get there somehow, there were extra things to do, and it was longer.
It just seemed that it was a Paper Mario Wii version of the New Super Mario brothers, but you could look at the screen side on. and really if you think about it, that doesnt really make for the game we're used to.
So although the newest installment provides a somewhat good level of play and entertainment, it is heavily hindered by the loss of the brilliant RPG gameplay that veterans of the series love. It might be good, but why cut out all these other factors that made its previous games brilliant.
