I would like to take this moment to recognize the passing of Nintendo's President and gaming icon Satoru Iwata who passed away on July 11th at the age of 55. He leaves a void in an industry that appreciated his passion more than he will ever know.
Super Paper Mario is one of my all time Wii favorites. There is elegance in simplicity, and the 2-D epic had plenty to spare. Its lovely visuals tied in great with the turn based combat familiar of the series. The twist here was the ability to change perspectives of landscapes from 2-D to 3-D at the press of a button. This made for lots of fun hidden items as well as puzzle solving. Games like this are so fun. Humor and adventure done right, it beckons to be explored and opens the player up for a lot of engagement. I anticipate a sequel will be made at some point, but for now Super Paper Mario remains my favorite. 9/10
