Paper Mario has always been a great RPG series. While Paper Mario: Sticker Star keeps the trend of being a fun RPG adventure and retains many of the old mechanics, the game also brings with it some caveats. The world map, for example, is similar to Super Mario World for the SNES but with a little more illusion of direction. You are given 4 directions to travel through levels, but most of them require beating the set of levels that come before it. As a result the game is mostly lateral with a little bit of toss up in secret paths. Combat in Paper Mario: Sticker Star is great and still uses the button mashing for extra damage and dodging attacks, however you must use stickers to combat the enemy and many attacks only hit the first enemy in the line-up. That said, if you're good at timing your hits, you can easily get tons of coins to keep your sticker collection well stocked. While this game is a lot more linear than some of the Paper Mario games of the past, the game is fun and full of some pretty great sticker attacks. I would definitely recommend Paper Mario: Sticker Star to any fan of the Paper Mario series.
