Nerdluster: The sticker system goes completely contrary to my nature as a completionist. I rarely use items when I play RPGs, as I constantly wonder: “What if I need this for later?” So, stepping into this was difficult for me, and it was a process that I had to get used to, but it did grow on me. What I ended up finding was a charming and original, albeit flawed game. For those new to the “Paper Mario” franchise, this is a good introduction to a series filled with several gems. If you’re a fan of previous “Paper Mario” titles, you should still get a kick out of this, as long as you level your expectations regarding the story and RPG depth. In a time full of repetitive sequels, “Sticker Star” presents a fresh new take on combat unlike anything we’ve seen before.
