It doesn't play like a point and click adventure at all, where did you got that from? That is a deeply stupid "consensus"

Pre-loaded copies of Paper Mario Color Splash can be played right now.

Apparently people have beat it, and say its 20-22hours long.

Its super easy mode entire way though. Battles become trival and boring quick.

If judged for its charm, good level design, and as a "Mario point and click adventure game", a guy said he rated it a 6-7 out of 10.

So what a guy in neogaf says is a consensus now, right...

That guy should look up for the definition of "click and point adventure" btw.



80.

"The player clicks to move their character around, interact with non-player characters, often initiating conversation trees with them, examine objects in the game's settings or with their character's item inventory. Many point-and-click games would include a list of on-screen verbs to describe specific actions in the manner of a text adventure, but newer games have used more context-sensitive user interface elements to reduce or eliminate this approach. Often, these games come down to collecting items for the character's inventory, and figuring where is the right time to use that item; the player would need to use clues from the visual elements of the game, descriptions of the various items, and dialogue from other characters to figure this out."

^ seems true enough.

Also there are point & click games with battle systems in them.

I think its fair enough for that dude to say it plays like a point & click adventure game.

Low 80s. This has to score better than Sticker Star, because then people can shut up about it being just another Sticker Star.

It could score 98 and I'd still call it Sticker Star 2.

It has some obvious differences, though.

My copy is already in the mail. I don't know much about the game, I pretty much solely bought it to spite Einsam_Delphin. Now some might say that the last time I did something like that (Star Fox Zero because of spemanig) it backfired hard, but if there's one thing that people can say about me, it's that I do not learn from my mistakes.

Why do you want to spite Einsam_Delphin?



My true form. You like it?

81 exactly. Paper Mario hasn't been a good series since, Thousand Year Door. Once they killed the RPG elements it became a poor spin off series.

81 is not the score of a poor game at all, specially when we talk about a relatively modest one and not a 200 milion blockbuster.

The series is poor overall, but I'm giving this one extra points. 



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

First review comes from Cheat Code Central:

Paper Mario: Color Splash has a lot going for it. Most of the time, it's the kind of game that simply brings a smile to your face as you enjoy the fresh world and amusing dialogue. If it weren't for the tedious side effects of the card system and the disappointingly unoriginal cast, it could be a genuine Game of the Year award contender. As it is, it's still thoroughly worthwhile for its enchanting paper world (and the attendant tunes) alone. This game is about 80% whimsy, wonder, and silly grins – which makes it worth your while to put up with the few ways that it doesn't shine.

4/5



In a matter of minutes there's probably gonna be a lot of review coming so the poll is closed, this is how the predictions ended:



64% Believe is gonna be somewehere between 75 - 84



Reviews incoming, mostly positive by now.



Glad to see it getting good reviews so far. It reassuring to hear this, I will be sure to pick it up next time I go to Walmart... That will be a week or 2 after release though.
