Is Super Mario RPG any good?

I saw it on Club Nintendo and desperately searched through all my Nintendo games for codes to input.

Now I have enough coins. Is it worth it?

It is. Wish it was actually for Wii U though. Unlike the 3DS, some of the Wii U download codes are misleading and make you have to play the games in Wii mode.

It's not bad. I completely agree with zado above that Paper Mario is better, but still it's not bad.

The thing is, Super Mario RPG is just a 90's-era Final Fantasy game with a Mario skin on top. If you decide to give it a chance, be aware of what you're getting into.

Yeah it's pretty good. It has the timing based blocking and hitting mechanics that the rest of the Mario RPGs ended up using as well.

Seven Stars?

Yeah, that's the best Mario RPG out there. Developed by Squaresoft. In fact, I'd call it one of the best Mario games period.

Nintendo unashamedly ripped off its gameplay for the watered-down Paper Mario series.

It's better than Paper Mario, but not as good as Thousand Year Door. A really good game overall.
