I never played a Paper Mario game before. Is this worth it for $20?

Since the game is on sale for $20 @ BestBuy, I thought it'd be worth checking into, especially since I just upgraded to a 3DS XL and planning to expand my library (finally).

I talked to an acquaintance about it and she said she hated it - she's a huge Nintendo/Paper Mario fan and it really surprised me to hear her say that.

What do you guys think?

I'm probly gonna wait till it hits 5-10$ in some sale before I get it, I've heard a lot of bad things about it and the fact that it strays far from the original Paper Mario roots doesn't sit well with me.

She's right. The game is bad. But if you never played any other games in the series,I guess it's allright to get.

I only have Paper Mario 64 and the one on Gamecube. I feel fine not playing the others.

You probably won't like it much.

More villains need to be protagonists. BiS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

It's worth $20.

As a standalone game it is just fine, it's all the people expecting it to be some deep RPG with mechanics similar to M&L that were giving it so much hate.

The sticker system is a cool idea, but it just isn't handled the best way.

It was the first game I bought for the 3DS and put in about 25 hours or so in the first playthrough.

You'd be far better off buying the original on VC and finding a copy of TTYD.

I've played them all and would place this version at 3rd in the series. It is still an enjoyable game and I definitely got my 20$ worth when I got it on sale in February. The stickers really vary up the gameplay.
