Although unorthodox, it's well pulled off,
This review is from: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA) (Video Game)Honestly, when I first read about Superstar Saga, I never truely believed that a Mario RPG could ever be pulled off. The original Mario RPG (on SNES, if I remember correctly) was a bit of a flop.
But, with my strange fearless in Nintendo's work, I decided to buy it. Never looked back.
I've never really been an RPG fan; the furthest I've gone is FF Tactics Advance, and I enjoyed that, but not immensly. This changed my perspective.
Music is as Mario should be, fantastic. But what strikes me, is that there's a lot of jokes in Superstar Saga, although naive; they're quite funny.
In short, buy it. It's perhaps the BEST GBA game on the market; the only letdown is the lack of a Co-Op option. I was quite misled by the box in this one, as it said '2 Player Option', so me and my good friend bought it; only to find it was the old 'Mario Bros.' game Nintendo have smashed into every Mario game on the GBA. Don't buy it if you think its co-op. Still, we enjoyed it thoroughly.
