2.0 out of 5 stars Is it really that good?, 24 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GameCube) (Video Game)
Reading some slightly delirious reviews of Thousand Year Door makes me wonder what the fuss is about. Maybe its a bunch of guys who have literally just recieved the game through the letter box and have not opened it, but are so excited about how good its going to be that they score it high.
You know the feeling, the "I can't wait to play this game, Im looking forward to it so much that I'm going to go on Amazon and tell everyone how good it is" kind of excited.
For those who want to buy this game, unless your a mad Mario fan and you love turn based games don't bother. Sure, its not a BAD game by any means, its well polished Nintendo fare as one would expect but I found that for an RPG it lacked a lot of depth and was overly simple. I didn't like the way you move from screen to screen instead of the screen scrolling as you move (ala Mario Bros 1,2,3 etc etc) and I didn't like the way you had to do turn based battle every time you touch something, even the cackiest of tiny Goombas you have to go through the massive rigmarole of battling them and it takes ages, even when you opt to retreat.
Usually I consult games review websites before I buy a game and until now I have found that they are accurate and I get value for my hard earned coin, but in the case of Paper Mario, where they all said it was well worth buying, they were wrong.
I traded this game in the end after about a month of owning it and hours of boredom. Don't buy it. Its pants.

1. Most RPGs have to have some sort of loading screen when moving into another area.
2. Most RPGs make you battle emenies in areas, regardless if they are powerful or not. If you are skilled enough, you can actually avoid every non-required fight in the game (of course, you will most likely die at the first boss, but still).
3. THIS GAME ISA RPG, SO THE BATTLES DO LINGER, BUT THAT IS A POINT OF A RPG.

Don't listen to this review, it a load of bullsh*t.
