Paper Mario: Sticker Star
Paper Mario: Sticker Star is one of the very few Mario games that I've played that has not grasped my attention. The story, graphics, and the game itself is pretty good. The sticker system in this game, which is used to fight enemies, is not so great. When I first heard of this sticker system, it sounded so interesting, creative, and fun! It turned out to be the opposite. Throughout the game, you collect stickers which are found in stores and in the levels themselves. The stickers are stored in a sticker album to beat enemies, but here's the dumb part. You want to avoid enemies! If you get hit by an enemy, most times, you can just walk away from it and never fight it. What's the point of really playing a game where all you do is collect stickers to basically just fight a boss, but nothing else? To me, this game is basically just completing levels and doing other quests to reach the boss. Their are many other fun parts to the game, but the sticker system, which is considered the most important part of the game, is not that great. It is still a fun Mario game nonetheless, but I recommend you put this game lower on your Nintendo wish list.
