Paper Mario 64 is a follow-up to Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven stars. It is once again a Turn Based RPG but this time its for the Nintendo 64 and it has great Music and excellent Graphics.
The Story is pretty good but defininatly not new to any Mario fan.
Bowser has a plan to kidnap the princess once, and its up to Mario to stop it from happening, and on the way he meets new people, and gets new friends to help him on his journey. Like I said, the main plot nothing new.
In Paper Mario 64, you are in an eviornment 3D, Just about everything is in 3D, but the characters are 2D, or Paper. Its visuals are very colorful and fun to look at aswell.
I never really had that big of a problem with the controls, besides charging the hammer you get and sometimes accident running into enemys, both are occasionally my fault also. There is not much to speak about the gameplay outside of battling besides walking and spinning, so I'll talk about the battle system.
Basicly the battle system is this: Jump, Hammer, Item, Switch.
Jumping and Hammer should be obvious what you do, Item lets you pick an Item you have, and Switch lets you Switch to your partner. Your Partner basicly has the same move. Instead of Jump and Hammer though, it's just Attack.
You can also level up, but that should be pretty obvious since its an RPG.
You level by getting exp, and when you level up you can choose to get more hp, fp, or bp. HP is your health, FP is what lets you use special attacks, and BP lets you put more badges on.
If the song at the beginning ended, here is another song to listen to.
There is not much to talk about when it comes to the music, it is excellent. If there is one thing about paper mario that everyone should agree on, its that the music is great. It is true that the battle theme does get a little old, but it still is great.
Basicly what im saying is, This is and always will be one of my favorite games of all time. I do not agree with a lot of things Mario789 said in his review.
because it sucks.
Overall review is 9.5/10
