Reviewed: Super Paper Mario

At the near end of the Nintendo 64's run, Nintendo kicked out a game that would spawn a series - a comical look at the Mario franchise known as Paper Mario. A few years later, gamers were treated to a re-imagining with the Gamecube title Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Unlike most Mario series, these weren't one-hit-death games; instead, RPG mechanics from Mario's run at turn-based strategy had been pulled in from the Super Mario RPG series, and the writing was allowed to get as silly as designers and writers felt. The result were games that were well loved by fans, but tended to see a little less recognition from the casual gamer base.

This time around, Nintendo's pulled Paper Mario over to the Wii, perhaps trying to tide things over until they can get Super Mario Galaxy out the door. Instead of a serious Mario game, the Wii edition is about as silly as it can get - a nice send-up of some classic Nintendo games from years past.
