Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga

The 8th Circuit
16 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Once in a while, greatness is achieved. The sheer talent of Wayne Gretzky, the creation of penicillin, and the moving speeches of Martin Luther King are such proofs of greatness. While no video game can reach these levels by the standards of today, Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga (M+L:SS) reached new heights in gaming in 2003. The finished product was magical, but not without its flaws.

Review – Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

12 September 2006
  • Conclusion: It seems the best design choice is to follow the greats — you will not see a separate battle engine and game in Civilization 5 — and focus primarily on your main mechanics, or go Jaffe’s and Suzuki’s route of making nearly everything a one time affair. If a game must have more stuff to do, say because the PR people demand another bullet point on the back of the case, follow AlphaDream’s lead.

Portable Review
9 August 2005
  • Excerpt: First off, I'd like to say this: I have never played Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars or Paper Mario, therefore this is an unbiased opinion.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Super Mario 128 Central
8 April 2005
  • Summary: This should be one of the best adventure/RPG titles on the GBA. What makes this game have what it takes to be great is the creative style of combining the Super Mario Bros' abilities to master it. Any fan of the Mario series should definitely purchase this game when it is released.

  • Excerpt: And while one could say the reason behind this assumption is because that Mario is a wildly-popular character in videogames (A result of being one of the most-recognized characters the world over), it may also be the fact that just about every game mario has been in has honestly rated high both critically and publically.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
1 February 2005
  • Excerpt: I agree with Andrew that Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is a pretty strange game. I also agree that, for a platformer and role-playing game (RPG) hybrid, it blends its gameplay styles remarkably well. It's hard to tell where the platformer ends and the RPG begins. As silly as it is, this game is a work of art—and not just visual art, either. There's something almost literary about Superstar Saga .

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga – Review

GameCritics.com
1 February 2005
  • Excerpt: Mario and Luigi have just landed on the strange island of Oho Oasis, and in time-honored videogame tradition, it's time to chat to the locals. Unfortunately, the blob-like inhabitants of Oho are not being all that helpful. "…How much is a chance?", asks one. "I am me.", affirms another. And just when it seems things couldn't get any more peculiar, one inquisitive little fellow cranks it up a notch: "…Are spirits delicious?

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Just RPG
1 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga is an excellent RPG full of humor and excitement. Intelligent Systems gave us the equally impressive Paper Mario for N64. AlphaDream now continues the grand legacy of exciting RPG games set in the Mario world with Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga for GBA. Each of these games have been developed by different companies but all have had their own unique qualities.

  • Excerpt: What could a holiday season be without Mario? This year saw the release of quite a few Mario titles, including Mario Golf, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Super Mario Advanced 4, and Mario & Luigi: Super Star Saga, all good titles in their own respect. GBA alone has seen rehash after rehash of classic Mario titles, many of which all Nintendo fans were getting sick of; Mario and Luigi breathes some fresh air into everyone's favorite handheld.
