Product Information
With a visual style and gameplay inspired by Paper Mario on Nintendo 64, Mario & Luigi teams up the Italian plumbers for an epic adventure outside the familiar confines of the Mushroom Kingdom. A witch has abducted Princess Peach from the claws of Bowser and has taken her to a neighboring realm, which angers Bowser so much he agrees to join the brothers to rescue her. Things do not go as smoothly as planned, however, when the ship carrying the trio crashes and sends the characters in different directions. Mario and Luigi were fortunate enough to stick close to each other, and vow to continue the mission with or without Bowser.

Players will be able to control either character separately or together as a team while confronting enemies, using moves such as the leapfrog, where Mario pushes against Luigi's back like a springboard for more powerful jumps. Battles take place in real time, often requiring the same techniques found in the original Super Mario games, except characters earn experience points instead of a high score. Both Mario and Luigi can also find and use various items in battle, as well as solve puzzles together using their combined talents. Players will meet up with familiar characters as well as few new faces during their journey, which ultimately leads to the witch's foreboding castle.

A top-notch portable RPG worth your time and money

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Superstar Saga, besides being a spiritual successor to the classic Super Mario RPG, is a great game on its own. It's a great adventure full of comedic events and fun gameplay. This is a must-play for any GBA or DS (or even Gamecube) owner.

However, the game suffers from a common RPG problem: its fights can quickly become boring and repetitive, especially in parts where you have to fight the same kind of enemies over and over again. The evade and counterattack mechanic helps fight that problem though. Most RPGs just have you standing there taking hits, but not this one. You also have various different attacks for different enemies. The fighting system is great and easy to understand, and it keeps you on your toes. You can't just mash the A button and hope for the best, like you could in those Final Fantasies (not to say they aren't good games too(the older ones are)).

The game's world is moderately sized with some hidden places to explore. The story is somewhat interesting, especially compared to ordinary Mario games, but still not anything extraordinarily good. Well-written and funny dialogue is worth mentioning, though. Overall quality and detail of the game's world is astounding as well.

As a portable game, Superstar Saga has some flaws. You can't put the game on sleep mode and save points are sometimes far away, so this is not the optimal play-on-go game. Even if you play this at home, near your Wiis and Xboxes, this still holds up as a game, not just as a distraction you pass time with on bus, which is the case with all those new iPhone games and all that cheap crap.

Superstar Saga already has two sequels. I haven't played M&L 2: Partners in Time (for DS), but I have the third one: Bowser's Inside Story (also for DS). Actually I played it before I did Superstar Saga.
SS has more variety in moves and exploration than BIS, but the latter is more refined in many ways. Both games suffer from boringness and times, and other frustrating bits, such as the princess escort mission in Superstar Saga and the train chase in Bowser's Inside Story. Both games are still excellent and fun to play. If you have a GBA, get this one. If you have a DS, get both. Or all three. But I recommend this as the first one you play of the three.

This is one of the greatest games on the GBA, right up there with Metroid Fusion and Pokemon Emerald.

best handheld rpg ever

mario and lugi have been a staple of nintendo for so long, you'd think they had run out of ideas for new games, but they just keep comming. i know i'm writing this long after its been out but still i was just amazed by this game's originality. first, the controls are perfect, they never bog you down but can be pleasantly challenging at times. second is the great depth of play, including many different lands to explore. third, the dialog. i could not stop from laughing through the many hilarious cut scenes. new and old villians apear, and with several plot twists that i did not expect, it kept me interested throughout the game. even leveling the characters is fun because you can choose stats to boost and learn advance combat moves (practice, practice, practice is all i can say) that really keep you busy right up to the final battle. i'd say it ranks up near chrono trigger in my list of best rpg's not for the story per say but for orginality and sheer enjoyment. one you can play over and over just for a good laugh. hope this helps someone decide. as for you people who dont know if you like rpg's yet, i definately suggest getting this game first, its got the best mix of non-rpg elements you'll find. for example the fighting system is reaction based for both offense and defence.
ok signing off,
Chrono330

A fantastic RPG experience

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I originally bought this game on a whim after seeing that it was set in the same style as "Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story", which I adored playing. What I didn't know was that you could probably consider this an official prequel to it! Fawful is a minion to Cackletta, both of whom are trying to take over the BeanBean Kingdom. It's up to Mario and Luigi to stop them, and it's a fantastic trip. Every single one of characters are both lovable and memorable, and Mario and Luigi (particularly Luigi) adds a fantastic amount of their own personal drama and charm to it.


What I expected was for the game to be on the easier side like Bowser's Inside Story, but not exactly! Sure it's easy enough to not give you too much trouble, but it's also engaging and successful in keeping you from putting the game down. Considering it's length, this is a good thing! I was fooled into thinking I was done a few times, but they just kept me going. It's such a cute and clever story though, I didn't mind.

The controls are what intrigue me the most, to be honest. Both in and out of battle, you can control each brother separately using the A and B buttons. This creates extremely unique battle situations, along with fun techniques to learn and master as well. It adds a great puzzle factor to the game, as you need to learn different techniques involving brother cooperation to get to certain areas and complete certain tasks.

All in all, a great game and worth playing in your spare time, and thanks to eBay and it's age (has it really been 8 years?), you should be able to snag it for pretty cheap.

Mario RPG on the go!

Recommendations: Ages 6 & up with mild reading skills (for maximum enjoyment)

Background: This game is a fantastic adaptation of the RPG/Platformer hybrid that was Super Mario RPG for the SNES and later on Paper Mario for the N64 (with subsequent installments on the Gamecube and Wii). Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga also spawned a sequel on the Nintendo DS, and a third title in the series will be released for the DS in the Spring/Summer of 2009.

Review: Superstar Saga is about as charming as a handheld title can get. It is suitable for all ages, although it can be a bit text-heavy at times. The majority of the game is spent doing three things: exploring the hub world and towns, solving unique "dual-button" puzzles, and engaging in combat.

Exploring not only advances the story of the game but it also gives players a chance to get to know the various NPCs (Non-Playable-Characters) that inhabit the world of Mario and Luigi. This adds a charming amount of depth to the game and makes it all the more enjoyable.

In addition to their exploring escapades, Mario and Luigi will also come across mildly-challenging "dual-button" puzzles. In these sequences Mario and Luigi are both assigned to the A and B buttons, respectively, and the player has the opportunity to control both of the brothers to solve puzzles and navigate through the game world. These sequences are a fun experimentation of mind-teasers and dexterity, and are rewarding in their own right.

Finally, the combat in the game is most reminiscent of the Paper Mario franchise. Both Mario and Luigi can be controlled in turn-based battles, where they can act separately or together as a team. The combat is extremely fun, and surprisingly deep, while remaining completely accessible at the same time.

I've spent a lot of hours with this game, and it remains one of my favorite GBA games in my collection. Here are some of the pros and cons:

Pros:
-Great Controls
-A Colorful and Rich Graphic's Engine
-Engaging Combat
-Suitable for all ages

Cons:
-Silly Story
-Drawn out Text-Sequences
-A little text-heavy, but nothing too demanding...

All in all, this is a great game, and I would recommend it to anyone owning a Gameboy Advance, a Gamecube Gameboy Player, or a Nintendo DS. You really shouldn't pass this up.

Story: 6/10
Graphics: 8/10
Gameplay: 10/10
Fun Factor: 10/10

Overall: 10/10

mario and luigi in an rpg.....jackpot!!!!!

Mario and luigi go in uncharted territory in this turnbased rpg game.Its wierd seeing mario and luigi in this kind of genre....rpg but this game proves to be one for the records. Princess peach loses her voice so she sends her boyz (plumber heroes Mario and Luigi)on a adventure to retrieve her voice back from the villains.No more side scrolling & jumping on goompas.The heroes ingage in turn based combat.But with precise button presses the player can make thier attacks stronger.

The combat though is spiced up with chances where the player can avoid damage from the enemie when the enemie is attacking.By jumping or using a hammer on the enemie.(During enemies attacks the player can jump or use thier hammer freely)the player is then more active in battle.So battles are more exciting.
This game is all about teamwork.When one of the brothers hp reaches 0 that brother is knocked and cant fight so the opposite brother then carries the other thus dodging enemies attacks is harder.And when not fighting teamwork is needed to get to hard to reach areas.

Plus there are moments where the game is funny(People constantly forgetting who the heck is luigi) Mini games are also strewn across the game story line.This game is great and I recommend it. MAMA MIA
