The overhauled battle system in the Paper Mario for 3DS is probably going to be a bit of a deal-breaker for some, I think. Like, they did away with leveling altogether. The new sticker mechanic is fresh and intriguing and I'm certainly open to it and enjoying the new direction, but I can definitely see the folks who came to previous entries strictly for the RPG elements coming away somewhat disappointed. Aside from that, though, the production values continue to be aces, the writing is as sharp as ever, and the wonderful aesthetics really pop to life on the 3DS (you can tell that they're particularly having fun playing up the paper angle with the system screen's added dimension). If you're a fan of the series and willing to give semi-new experiences a go, there's a lot to like here.
