Excerpt: Paper Mario is a great game from Nintendo 64 and the graphics are pretty good for such unusual concept. The whole world is made so it looks like regular paper cut out to look like houses, trees and people. The controls are very easy to pick up.
Excerpt: Plot Once again King Bowser the koopa King is up to no good not only is he up to his usual antics of stealing princess peach, but he has also stolen the entire Royal castle, uprooting it from the ground and flying it into the upper atmosphere far from the reach of Mario and his friends.
Mario's RPG outing is a fun one, but newcomers to the genre will appreciate it the most.

Excerpt: Paper Mario originally came out on the Nintendo 64 in 2001 (for Europe) but was re-released on the Wii's Virtual Console in 2007 (which is what I'm basing my review on).

Excerpt: I can't believe that even after so many succesful games I ever doubted Paper Mario. I wasn't convinced by it at all, I thought the idea of a 2d mario in a 3D world would just be weird. Thankfully however I was wrong, very wrong.
Excerpt: Paper Mario fo rthe N64 originally very hard to get hold of in the UK. It is now haowever available for download from the Wii shop Virtual Console on the nintendo Wii. I missed this one the first time round when I owned an N64, and recently downloaded it to my Wii.
Superb Mario adventure with a new style of gameplay
27 April 2006
Excerpt: When I first saw this game on a tv show, it looked a bit too childish for my liking. I loved Mario 64, but this just seemed to be geared at a much younger demographic and therefore I expected it too be far too easy.
Excerpt: I have written Paper Mario review before (not on here) now I’ve completed the game so I suppose it isn’t a bad idea doing another with further insight to the greatest game the N64 has seen in 2001 (bar Conker of course).
Excerpt: Bowser has stolen the star rod, he has imprisoned the 7 star elders, he has lifted princess Peach’s castle high into space and has defeated Mario. All is lost but he has been helped back on to his feet and sets on a quest to gain enough power to defeat Bowser and his star rod by releasing the 7 star...
Excerpt: Paper Mario – the stuff N64 games should be made of Ever thought of an RPG? An RPG starring Mario and other characters, new and old, from the Mario and Luigi series? An turn-style based RPG in which you hit koopa troopas on the head with big mallets, jump on them or set a fire-flower on them, yet...
