Topic. People are just upset that the game went in a different direction and changed things up. They wanted a game like thousand year door and they didn't get it. If you wanted to play a GameCube game, then you should have just plugged in your GameCube and done so. True fans of the series will be able to see the game for what it is: a fresh, new, and interesting entry in the Paper Mario franchise.

So why is this the go to argument whenever I see a lot whenever it gets brought up that people didn't like Sticker Star? As someone who did, in fact, thoroughly enjoy the game, I don't understand this. Yes, there are people who do get upset at sequels simply because things were changed. But I see this comment used even after somebody who dislikes the game give their reasons. I have rarely seen someone state that they wanted a "port of the GameCube game". Most people just say that they didn't like the watered down combat (which is objectively was), the lack of a story, the fact that the main villain didn't talk or have any dialogue, the final dungeon not being much of a dungeon, etc.

And to be honest, this applies to pretty much any other sequel in any series.

Yeah change stuff to crap.

All attacks are item based. No unlimited normal attacks. Limited amount of space for items too.

Battles are pointless.

At times I want to avoid battle so I don't have to use half my inventory.

I have no desire to play an RPG where there's no reward for battle.

Fresh: They used the same overworld map they've been using for 20 years. I thought we were past that kind of layout when we developed open world games, but they keep going back to that. I feel like it's a cheap and easy way to get around having to integrate the parts of the world.

Interesting: Paper Mario and TTYD both had great stories that made you want to keep playing to see what happened next. The only reason I even completed SPM was because the characters were dynamic and interesting. This game doesn't have ANY story aside from "go collect some things" and I was sorely disappointed by this. Did I want a TTYD clone? No, but I wanted a story.

I have never played a Paper Mario game before, so I thought I'd be fine with the game, but after about four hours I got tired of the sticker bullcrap.

This. Get it right, people.

Sticker Star is basically a jumble of boring old elements from the past Paper Marios and NSMB, poorly made and lazy attempts at being innovative, and a pinch of actual quality.
More villains need to be protagonists. BiS proves it can work.

I can understand why certain folks would be unhappy with it but it's really not a bad game. It's alright.

I enjoyed Sticker Star, I don't think it deserves the hate that it gets, but oh well. I'll just enjoy while having the entire 3DS board screaming in my ear "THAT'S A BAD GAME."
