Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Reviewed by Slimu
One day, Princess Peach was sitting outside of Mario's
house, when suddenly, out of nowhere, Bowser came and
swept her away!
Mario rushes to Bowser's castle to confront him for the
millionth time, only this time, to find his fight is on
chandeliers. After a rather quick fight, Mario comes and
saves Peach...but, suddenly, the castle started to shake
and a giant sword comes crashing down on the castle,
flinging the inhabitants in different directions. The
Goombas! Koopas! Shysters! Bean Stalks! Giant Swords! A
Dinosaur Paradise! This is the wacky world of Super Mario
RPG for the Super Nintendo! Also featuring the best
graphics seen in any RPG for the Super NES, and the best
Mario story ever! With super duper Music Compositions! This
makes the game one of the best RPGs ever made!
The graphics are the best seen in Super NES! ACM graphics!
The first time anybody used ACM graphics on an RPG! A
Tremendous success that became of. All characters are
beautifully rendered, and features a wide variety of
humorous impressions. The spells in the game look wondrous
and beautiful, but somehow, some other games' magic spells
look better. But that doesn't matter. The point is, the
graphics in this game is the absolute best!
The music Compositions of the game are wonderful! At least
20 beautiful soundtracks for the whole game! Mostly all
better than Nintendo 64 game music! They are all upbeat,
and cute, and perfect for the world it's in...but the
"Better than N64" thing pretty much tells you how good the
music is, doesn't it?
The sound Effects of the game are as good as anything! Even
though none of them are really natural sounds, all of them
are silly and funny and I like that. Never annoying, no
voices, correct sound volume for different situations, perfect.
The controls of the game is a bit awkward. Your in a 3/4
view, which means the camera is aimed at a kind of 45
degree angle. To go the direction the game is going, you
need to use the top-left, top-right, bottom-left, and
bottom-right. But it is very responsive and only takes a
matter of seconds to get the hang of the strange, yet
normal controls. But when it comes to battle time, the
controls rule! It's very easy to change to a different
option, and the text is large enough for anyone to see.
The game's Challenge is pretty weak. Even if it's the best
RPG, it's still the easiest RPG. You can't exactly make any
wrong turns, because you follow a route such as in Super
Mario World. You can only reach up to level 30, which
stinks, and all enemies are weak and easy to beat without
any strategy. I'm not trying to sound mean about this, but
it's just the natural truth. But I do know that this game
can not be finished in 2 hours. Maybe at least 5 hours.
The game's replay Value...I am doing a review on the game
two years after it's release, and yet, I still have a bunch
of good comments on it. And your asking for the replay
value?! Oookay. Lots of mini-games, fun graphics makes
running around fun, jumping on people's heads is fun, and
talking to people is fun too :). The game is virtually
perfect and fully funpacked. A very good game. A great
game! A wonderful game! I'm not going to take myself any
The game in one sentence is: The most funpacked RPG and
Mario game ever made for the Super NES! And overall, the
game is a great all around game, and a worthwhile buy.
