"The Paper Mario series has always been one that brings innovation and a unique style. I have come to truly love the series over the years, even though I'm not much of an RPG fan. The games in this franchise always bring such a fantastic sense of humor with them. It's easy to see just how much care goes into making stories/dialog that really feel warm and engaging. A charm you just don't get anywhere else.
Within the confines of the Paper Mario series, Nintendo has taken things in some different directions. Super Paper Mario really did away with almost all of the RPG elements that had been a series' staple up to that point. That didn't sit well with a lot of people. That also puts the pressure on Paper Mario Sticker Star to twist things back in the previous direction.", writes GoNintendo
