Once upon a time...,
This review is from: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GameCube) (Video Game)
We all love a good story. We all love a good game. Here, you get both.
And let's face it, there are good games, great games, and games so painfully engrossing that you could go for hours with drinking, eating or popping to the loo. Paper Mario is the latter. The gameplay itself is fantastic, but the story is so rich and absorbing that it's like a gripping page-turner that you can never put down. Only in the case of Paper Mario, rather than turn the page, you play on...and on, and on...
In all honesty, you really must play this game to understand its shining brilliance. If you want a game that sells on image but is as shallow as a puddle, please go elsewhere. You won't find any posing, violence or profanity here, just a stormer of a game.
