Default Prime's Lucas Stephens: "Your enjoyment of Paper Mario: Sticker Star is going to be correlated to how well you can accept what kind of game it is. It’s no longer a traditional RPG with the lack of leveling and no partner tagging along keeping you company. You may or may not care for the consumable sticker battling system. You might dislike how the world is set up, segmented into levels like a 2D platformer. If you can embrace these changes, however, you’ll find that Sticker Star is a very fun game to play."
