Game Beaten Jan 4,2016
1:3D platformer puzzle fighter all environments are beautiful and like handmade from paper from the mountains trees oceans everything its so awesome
2:Music is very upbeat and the off color songs are also just so well done excellent soundtrack to listen too
3:Combat is similar to sticker star a little better because you build a deck then can use stored paint to paint them making attacks stronger etc...
4:Things that suck
Things are back and have to be used to beat the boss at the end and its hard when to use them even if you have the right one which you could play a boss several times before you finally know when to use the item.
Shy guy this is the stupidest thing in the game you can in every level fill in void color spots to try a colorize the whole level which can take hours to find all the spots you would think Nintendo would value your time and be like oh man that sucked thank goodness you don't have to do it again. WRONG PSYCHE! We made an enemy that appears on the overworld and can suck a whole level dry if you can't make it to him which makes a level it look like you didnt colorize anything haha. I swear whoever came up with this dude i just want to punch in the kidneys stupidest game design ever! Destroying players progress for no reason is so dumb beyond dumb.
Fighting doesnt give exp! You instead get hammers which can up your max paint which you had to do but it was a missed oppurtunity and took out the rpg elements of the game
Combat could have been fixed with the deck say you use 3 cards on two goombas and only take 2 to beat the goombas just because you threw out that 3 card even though went unused is gone which is stupid i lost so many good cards by underestimating the damage output per round on some enemies. It should have given the cards back that went unused back to your hand instead of destroying them its like the developers didnt even test the game or just didnt care i dont get it but the next game better go back to super paper mario's combat or thousand year door or the original because paint splash and sticker stars formula for fighting is just plain terrible and unfun to execute.
5:Things that rock
1:Storyline and dialogue some of the most funny and well written dialogue ever
Music very well done and lives up to legendary paper mario
Graphics very paper marioish and just a plain visual pleasure going through the game
Level design so beautiful from colorizing things to forests mountains sailing a pirate ship volcanoes haunted tea mansion courtyard beach parties and much much more
combat is pretty well done but the card system sucks almost as bad as sticker star
FINAL BOSS FIGHT! No spoilers but this felt and played out epically one of the best fights in paper mario history. Takes skill a good deck and a little luck
Every Big Paint star you get is a little celebration that makes you generally feel like you are literally changing the world for the better and a huge ego boost to the player feeling appreciated. When you clear the game a giant parade in your honor one thing about in Nintendo games especially mario you feel like a total bad apple plumber and so good about what you accomplish in the game its an epic feeling even though its just a game.
Verdict Rating-ABSOLUTELY MUST PLAY/BUY-This is not sticker star improves on a lot of areas that sticker star lacked some things still suck but i would regret everything if i passed this game up one of the best story lines and dialogue in a mario rpg hands down you don't want to miss this Mario Paint adventure in Prism island.
