Conclusion: Overall, this game has many good qualities, but like other games there are its flaws, so never expect perfection. There are many factors I may not have covered here that can be mentioned, so there is always room for improvement.

Excerpt: Does anyone remember Super Mario RPG for the SNES? I probably won’t get a resounding “Yeah!” from the general gaming populace. But Mario’s RPG adventures have always been some of the pudgy plumber’s most memorable moments.

Excerpt: Some games come and go. They're quickly forgotten in the rush of other releases and fail to stand up to the test of time. I played Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door years ago, but when I slipped it into my Wii for this review, I was a little bit concerned that it might turn out to be one of those games. I think you'll see just how wrong I turned out to be.
Excerpt: There really are no other RPGs like those crazy Paper Mario games. They really like to take wholly different approaches on the genre, and that’s a nice breath of fresh air. The best part of a Mario RPG title, though, is the humor, and this one’s chock-full of in-jokes and crazy happenings.

Excerpt: Paper Mario? Its a funny name isnt it? Its at times like these you ask yourself who else would dare try such a concept other than Nintendo?

Whether it was during the battles or the in the dialogue the feeling of Nintendo was hard to shake.
Excerpt: Nintendo's unassuming little mustachioed mascot stars in one of his greatest adventures yet in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, which follows in the footsteps of last year's Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga for the Game Boy Advance, as well as the original Paper Mario title for the Nintendo 64.
