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

8/10

This is easily the best of the Mario RPGs, IMO, but not having any sort of fast-travel system made backtracking a humongous pain in the ass.

9/10

While a very good game that improves on its predecessor in many ways, it suffers from one big flaw, in my opinion: Backtracking. Good lord, the backtracking in this game is ridiculous, and extremely noticeable on subsequent playthroughs. It's not even a matter of backtracking to an area you tackled a couple of chapters ago -- it's backtracking through the same area over and over again during a chapter. Heck, even between chapters, you're forced to visit the Thousand-Year Door each time.

Other than that gripe though, the dialogue is well-written, entertaining and funny; the battle system is simple to grasp but has some nice nuances and is quite fun; the soundtrack and visuals are great; and there are lots of unique and interesting situations and locales in the game that give it a lot of charm.

A great game, pretty good RPG with really nice dialogue and characters(except Flurry I guess), would have got a 9/10 from me if it wasn't for the backtracking, it was so tedious and is one of the games that quickly makes you see why other RPG's without a world map implement quick travel(or Fly in Pokémon).

8/10
