Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars
Reviewed by Princess Zelda
This is a review of the Super Nintendo game Super Mario RPG. This is my
favorite game for the SNES. This game is FUN!!!
Graphics 12 out of 10
The graphics are presented in a 3/4 perspective, not quite overhead,
not quite parallel with the ground. The graphics are smooth and detailed.
One of the scenes in the ending sequence looks like an N64 shot. The shadow
effects are good, and the 3-D effect produced by the perspective is quite
realistic. In the "Moleville Mountain" ride, the graphics are fast-paced
and exciting. All of the backgrounds are STUNNING in this game! Overall,
the graphics are better than any other SNES game. The only game that
comes close to this level of quality is Star Fox.
Music and Sound 11 out of 10
The music is catchy, and has good rhythm and beat. All of the music
has multiple instruments and rich over-and-undertones. The music
that you hear is very appropriate to what you see. The "Culex" and
"Smithy" music is especially good, as well as the Factory and Nimbus
Land music. The sound effects are clear and crisp. They are well made
and CUTE! The effects in the battle sequences are particularly impressive.
Game Challenge 6 out of 10
This is not a particularly hard game, but some aspects of it are rather
difficult. For instance, getting all of the hidden treasure chests without
a cheat list or Player's Guide, beating Culex, and getting the Attack
Scarf and Super Suit. This game is fun, and even though it is not all that
hard, there are always things left to get or do. There are all sorts of
cute little quirks built into the game. They make it more challenging.
But it still remains fun.
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
THIS IS A VERY VERY VERY FUN GAME!!! I do not know exactly why it is so
much fun, but whatever the reason, THIS GAME IS FUN!!!
This game is not very frustrating overall, but it can be a little irritating in
places. It is hard to be frustrated by this game, because when you have a
problem, the solution is not that difficult to find.
Replayability 10 out of 10
For some reason, probably the level of fun this game presents, you will
never get sick of this game. It is simply not possible! Even when you
have beaten the game, you will want to play it again to get that one
item or chest you missed, or to try out this or that new trick you learned
from a friend. Even when you have gotten everyone to level 30, found
every single hidden chest, found every secret area, boss, and
item/armor/weapon/accessory, gotten a time of 02:00:00 on Moleville
Mountain, gotten 999 Yoshi Cookies stored, and basically done EVERYTHING
THERE IS TO DO, you will still want to do it all again!
Game Value 12 out of 10
This game is really worth it to buy. You will love this game!
You Know You've Been Playing Super Mario RPG Too Much When:
