"Mario may be known as a trailblazer of platformer, karting, doctor-themed puzzle, and mascot fighting games (among many others), but there is one genre where he has become an unexpected standout – role-playing games. Since the Super Nintendo era Mario and his pals have set the standard for spin-off RPGs, all of which have been created, at least in part by Nintendo, a company that's not traditionally known for crafting games in that space. These classic titles has evolved into the Paper Mario series, which includes the latest entry, Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Introducing new mechanics, while adhering to the franchise's unique aesthetics and witty writing, Sticker Star takes the series into a new direction while retaining many of the aspects that fans have grown to love.", writes MTV Multiplayer.
