Top 10 Reasons Why Paper Mario: Color Splash Will Suck

The Top TenXW

1It'll be the same thing as Sticker Star

Here's the thing...it looks better than Sticker Star, and it looks relatively fun, as all Mario games do. The problem isn't the game itself, more what's missing: Paper Mario greatness. It may sound entitled or spoiled, but it really isn't. I'm willing to give this game a chance, but I know it won't be original and immersive the way the first three Paper Mario games were. I think it's going to be as good as it can be under the terrible principles it's being created on, which are focusing solely on the paper gimmick and whatever new gimmick is added and reducing most of the RPG elements. But the original Paper Mario games were THAT good that it's worth protesting and waiting for years only to be disappointed with a similar game as one that eliminated most of the magic from the series. Paper Mario was our best shot at having more original story, characters, bosses, locations, e tc. a nd just being a more immersive, intense experience rather than just another Mario game, and while Color ...more

Same gameplay, same map as always. But the gameplay will be focused on getting paint and painting things that are not colored. Nintendo is running out of ideas to me. - bugger

If I was the head of Nintendo I would kick Miyamoto off the development team of the Paper Mario series.

Its not the same thing

2The game has a darker look of the characters

Nintendo just made the characters slightly darker now. Why's this a problem. Things will be dark and gloomy - bugger

It's better than the bright boring nature of sticker star. - DCfnaf

3Still no partners in the game

Just the Paint bucket that helps you. Kersti was useless in Sticker star and now the paint bucket. Come one Nintendo, the partners in the Paper Mario series are good. Bring them back. - bugger

Hopefully this will be BETTER than sticker star. - DCfnaf

You get a bucket for a partner, but he/she is basically gonna be the Kersti of this game. When are gonna actual partners with unique personalities again?

4It will be Splatoon in a nutshell

Splatoon sucked in my opinion. Ok this game is Sticker Star and Splatoon combined. This game will be so unoriginal - bugger

5Rosalina will be in it

I do like Rosalina, but not how she appears in everything. Rosalina is appearing in so much games in a row. I wished that this is the only game where Rosalina ends her streak because I'm always tired how Nintendo is putting her in every game now. by the way, she actually appeared in Mario and Luigi Paper Jam as a battle card cameo. Her streak did not ended. - bugger

You said you don't like Rosalina but it says in your description that your favorite character is Rosalina. Make up your mind. - DCfnaf

I do agree that Rosalina is a good character, but she's becoming overused, appearing in every Mario game now in SOME capacity. - LarkwingFlight

This doesn't mean the game will suck. Also, she was not confirmed to be in it. - DCfnaf

UH Rosalina is not in it so...

6Princess Daisy will not be in the game.

Princess Daisy is my second favorite princess in the Mario series. Can Nintendo just add her in a single Mario RPG game? - bugger

Ok, just because some random Mario character isn't in the game, it doesn't make it bad! Look, I'm not happy this game is out, but I'll give it a chance and judge it based on important reasons rather than this. I find Daisy annoying, but even if I didn't, I still wouldn't be against a game BECAUSE a good character wasn't in it.

Ahh here it is. Yeah Daisy should be in a Mario RPG. That would develop her character. However, Nintendo is not going to do anything with her because she's not their character. Plus I like her in the RPGs and Rosalina in the main series. - DCfnaf

I never said I didn't want Daisy in games. I just said Nintendo doesn't seem to be doing anything with her. - DCfnaf

7It has the TTYD beginning plot.

It doesn't even really have the TTYD plot. Frankly, that one was fantastic and original anyway, while this one is not great, at least by Paper Mario standards of having AMAZING stories anyway. This plot is just mediocre, although better and more original than Sticker Star.

Nintendo, choose another plot and we hate unoriginal stuff - bugger

It's better than Sticker Star's Story.

8No playable Luigi

Yeah this is bad, but the first two Paper Mario games were EXCELLENT, and Luigi wasn't a playable character there. I'll admit that I did like Luigi being playable in Super Paper Mario (as well as Bowser and Peach in addition to Mario), and I wish he were playable in Color Splash, but that doesn't mean the game will be bad because Luigi isn't playable. I'm not thrilled about Color Splash, but at least give it a chance on make-or-break aspects and judge it from there.

9Same controls

You use a hammer but it paints, nothing new to me. - bugger

10The bosses are the Koopalings

And people seriously complain about Rosalina being in everything. Rosalina is a great and developed character. The Koopalings are not. Stop giving us the same trash boss battle OVER AND OVER AGAIN. - DCfnaf

Ok, this one's hard to defend. In some ways Color Splash does have SOME originality, but it still has some of that feel of "just another Mario game" like Sticker Star did. This is one of the biggest examples of this, along with the world map, and it makes it seem like Nintendo doesn't care about adding originality any more to Paper Mario. Bring back the soul that the old Paper Mario games had!

Nothing here but koopalings, Kamek and Petey... So lazy.

12Shigeru Miyamoto's Direction

I guess Miyamoto has never acknowledged the Sticker Star backlash.

To think that the man who've had created such amazing franchises would learn to make good RPGs from experts when clearly he has become cheap, lazy, and unoriginal.

13Bowser is gonna be the main villain and final boss again

I do sometimes like Bowser as the final boss, but does he have the final boss all the time nowadays?

14It'll also be TTYD in a nutshell.

Ok, this comment is almost like an insult to TTYD. Look, I like Color Splash, although I'm not happy about how unoriginal it is compared with old Paper Mario games. If it were TTYD in a nutshell, it would at least be good and feel special, even if it were a rehash, which would be a little disappointing. The games are not at all similar (although the hub worlds do share a BIT of similarity) due to the lack of originality and intensity in Color Splash, and overall, they're just 2 different games for whatever good or bad reasons there are! Just judge them separately, and if you dislike one, give the other a chance! (although I LOVE TTYD so it'd be hard for me to understand someone hating it, but I would respect that opinion)

15Over-abundance of Toads

I hear there is gonna be these Toad rangers, but they're still Toads so who's gonna give a crap?

I like Toad a lot, but you can't have THAT many Toads in a game.

16It's nothing like TTYD.
17It's nothing like Paper Mario 64
18It's nothing like Super Paper Mario
19It's nothing like Sonic Boom Rise of Knuckles
20It's nothing like The Legend of Zelda
