Not for me....
on 22 January 2004
Unlike other people who have posted reviews, I simply did not like this game.
When I purchased it, there was a choice between Mario Advance, and Superstar Saga - I chose wrongly. Here why:
1. Controlling 2 characters - I thought this was quite a novel idea when I saw it. I don't think its featured in many games before, and I hoped it would work out on SS. But, in my opinion, it just makes things more difficult. You have to jump twice on every occassion, avoided enemies twice, and generally have to take more time to do things.
2. Battles - When you meet an enemy (which, as I mentioned, is pretty hard to avoid)you are taken to a battle screen. Usually, even if you only collise with one thing, there are 3 or so in the battle. You have to wait for your turn, choose the move, then execute it. This takes an age, as you have to kill all three enemies.
Ths kind of strategy battle may be some peoples cup of tea - not mine.
I suppose there are some positives with the game. Good graphics with a 3D-type effect, and the Mario Brohters, which together, should mean a good game.
But to me, it isn't.
