    Here's my official review :

    The game is absolutely AMAZING !!! Very CLEVER !!!

    There is a LOT of reading. A lot, did I mention there is a lot of reading. Oh my goodness. If you can get past that, you will love the game.

    The game is challenging to a point. There are points that you will be stuck at for a bit, but none the less, you will most likely always prevail. I've played for 2 hours and I'm at 1-4, but I've taken the time to read everything thru since this is my first time and I didn't want to miss anything.

    I love the option of pointing the Wii mote at the tv to find hidden doors.
    I love the cleverness of the trickery with the puzzles and clues.
    I love all the added pixls, items, cards, and recipes (cooking potent items)

    To most, this game won't be as challenging as they had wished, but believe me, this game will provide hours of gameplay and even to the person who states this isn't challenging, they will be stuck at some point for a bit of time.
    My 6 year old boy played for 2 hours and made it to 1-2. He loved it.
    I'm 29 and I will be up till 4 am most likely !

    Overall this game ROCKS ! ! !

    I agree the game is definetly fun. A little more reading then I was expecting, but it isn't that bad. I am used to all the other Mario games where you just plop it in and get to playing through levels.

    This is my first Paper Mario and I love the whole flip side world stuff. Cool to see the "other" side of things. Like Pixl said, there are some challenging moments but if you think it through and read the text it pretty much gives you the answers.

    Is it a lot like the old Paper Marios, or is it like completely different.

    I couldn't stop playing TTYD so I just want to make sure I am making a good choice on this game. Cause I plan on getting it tomorrow.

    I wanted this game so badly to be Super Mario Bros. 4, but unfortunatley that didn't happen. However I was left with a charming and smart side scrolling puzzle solving action rpg game.

    As far as negatives for me they would be:

    -Some of the character designs and backgrounds instead of looking stylishly simple like the other Paper Mario games end up looking uninspired, basic, and lazily put together. However not all is bad.

    -Sometimes this game's text can last way way too long, it makes me wonder if Nintendo is trying to make the game seem longer this way.

    -The game feels a little too linear, I wish it let you do more things in your own order or way.

    -The combat and boss battles for the most part have been on the easy side. I wish they required more skill. I haven't beaten the game, but it should be there by atleast the first 3 hours.

    -Not enough Wii controls. Seriously the only Wii stuff I've done is used the butterfly guy to point at the screen for hidden objects. It's obvious this game was meant for the GC.

    Positives

    -Awesome sense of humour this game has, surprisingly not as corny as I expected.

    -2D to 3D flip is an ingenius idea and I love how many layers of awesome it adds to the gaming experience.

    -Great and smart puzzles, I like how they really make use of the flipping of dimensions.

    So far after 4 or so hours it's an 8.5/10 for me. Based on what I've played it's not a killer-ap, but it's definatley worth your money.

    Don't worry, it starts to open up after you get past chapter 2.

    This game is on the awesome side, clever, witty, hilarious
    (especially when the dragon did the wii loading circle and said all kinds of computer errors)
    . The gameplay is easy enough to get the hang off, but difficult enough to where you'll have to do some things more than once to keep advancing
    (such as throwing an enemy to hit a ! switch, that took me a couple tries)
    . The graphics are obviously cartoony, but they're detailed cartoony, except for the backgrounds, which look a little thrown together. All in all, this game meets my expectations, and although it isn't truly a Paper Mario title, I think it does a good job of mixing Paper Mario and Super Mario Bros. Not perfectly, but decently enough to make it an awesome game.

    9.5/10

    I'm on Chapter 4, lol......still think it's a little too linear sometimes. Some people may like this, but others might not.

    hmm, so am i. i was just trying to say that you have more options after you complete the first couple chapters and can walk through the town as opposed to having to go straight to through the first chapter.

    Game is really good so far, but the reading is extremly boring. Infact, it probably added an hour of "gameplay", and i've been playing for about 2h30min so far. I'd say that it's really good, but if you don't like sitting through reading (like me) then you'll miss important stuff when you skip it (like me) and have to go back and do it again!

    The game is very linear. In fact, so is Zelda now that I mention it. During chapter 2 I believe you get a way to get around easier (i wont spoil it) but... even then..you have to do everything in a specfic order, in order to move on...

    How does the reading compare to say the amount of scanning you do in metroid prime?

    Fun game and its worth the money. I love how you could flip 2D to 3D. I also like the humor.

    I enjoy the game so far. I am only in chapter 1-3. I expected to play it for about 10 hours this afternoon, but fiance's parents needed help with stuff.

    I got all giggity when I get the mega shroom thing.

    Love this game, only been able to play for about an hour so far, but love the whole flip thing! FLIP FLIP FLIP! OK, I'll stop now. :D

    IMHO, the 3D thing really opens up a whole new side to the Paper Mario games

    So far I love the game (finished chapter 1). Like others have said...there is ALOT of reading but most of it is clever and humorous so it isn't all that bad. The best part of the game is changing from 2D to 3D. I think the overall design is great, and I don't get the feeling like it "uninspired, basic, and lazily put together." I think the design fits the game perfectly. The controls may not utilize the Wii capabilities as much as other games but I do feel like they are well done. When you hardly notice the controls for a game that is a good thing.

    It uses a good portion of the same characters...some new....but a lot old. Game play is half the same and half not. The turn based battling is gone, but the new battle system isnt soo bad.

    Everyone keeps saying...."Its too much to read" and all I can do is just laugh. When did reading become a bad thing to do? Remember people used to READ for FUN before TV and video games. Reading helps you get into the story and is part of the addiction. Without the reading, and the story, I dont think the game would get as good as reviews.

    So far, I'm really enjoying this game. I just finished the first Chapter 1-4. What I really like about this game as opposed to the last Paper Mario is that the turn based fighting system is gone. I'd rather fight in real time as opposed to letting everyone have a chance to hit me.

    As far as the controls go, I think they're pretty good so far. I don't mind Wii controls like those in Zelda, but I couldn't play Tiger Wood 2007 for more than thirty minutes due to having to stand up all the time. I wish they would have built a regular control mode into that game. That way you could use the Wii controls when you felt like it and conventional controls when you didn't.

    They do, you can use the analog stick on the nunchuck to swing. You just gotta change the options in the menu from the default one.
