BestBuy.com wants you to start your weekend with some much needed self-indulgence, because, like a supermodel slathered in megaprettyoxide-infused war paint, you're worth it. So why not treat your beauticious self to Paper Mario: Sticker Star, going at $19.99, or Kid Icarus: Uprising for $14.99?

Of course, you might feel you're worth that and quite a bit more. If so, you could always plump for Epic Mickey 2 on Wii at $11.99, or Darksiders 2 on PS3 or Xbox 360 at $14.99.

If you enjoy the Paper Mario series, or just Mario’s adventures in general, then this is an essential addition to you collection, even if it just falls short of ‘shiny’ status.

Like a pack of footy stickers, you'll find bits you want and bits you don't. Perhaps not the shiny Nintendo gem we'd hoped for, but a fun return to form.

A colourful, entertaining Paper Mario game with a clever battle mechanical and some smart 3D effects. Be prepared for the occasional frustrating moment and spot of aimless backtracking, though.

#papermario Nintendo's got up a great Iwata Asks interview with the folks behind Paper Mario: Sticker Star that's worth a read. More »

You see miyamoto is a lot like George Lucas, he's and awesome creative director and designer, but never give him the keys to the kingdom or else you end up with super Mario episode 1 the boo menace

it's not like Paper Mario was ever a real RPG to begin woth; there was never any choice-and-consequence, which is what makes role-playing, well, role-playing. plus most real RPGs did away with traditional exp long ago; it encourages grinding, aka repetitive mindless action. it isn't a challenge.

It does prove to be a satisfying enough adventure after becoming accustomed to the mix and match of gameplay styles included, but the back-tracking and frustrating limitations of the sticker battling system fail to impress. The whole package feels a bit 'lost and confused.' With this being the second deviation from the role-playing genre, and with the usual humour also surprisingly absent, all eyes turn to AlphaDream for a new, true RPG with Mario & Luigi 4.

The dudes over at Intelligent Systems have made an entirely new kind of game, an extremely interesting one really, that ends up—through reduction—being all kinds of things that it isn't.

Worlds are unique and impacted by Mario's progress

Cons

Puzzle solving is obtuse and complicated
Reliance on "things" stops all momentum

Indeed, this is a game of great touches. Intelligent Systems takes great care to shape its RPG for portable play. The world is divided into Super Mario Bros-style levels that each pack a tidy little narrative. Levelling is removed in order to keep these vignettes grind-free.

Sticker Star takes a little bit of getting used to, but if you're up for the challenge, and stick with it, you'll find it's yet another rewarding and endearing Paper Mario game.

There's just enough adventure and charm to mitigate the latter, but that's the shame of it; Sticker Star squeaks a pass when it could, and should, be spectacular.

I wish I enjoyed Paper Mario: Sticker Star more. In a lot of ways the game is very likable, but those adorable, charming qualities are mostly superficial. It undermines some of the series' core strengths by making most battles unnecessary and avoidable, and puzzles can be downright maddening in their vagary.
