Yeah, going through the game this weekend made me understand how potentially short this game can be.
10 hours in without rushing and I already found like 5 of the seven stars to find. Halfway through Land's End btw.
Though I ain't gonna complain about the length since it mixes up really well with the longer RPGs I'm playing currently.
Game is indeed charming as heck. Bowser's personality steals part of the show as usual but I gotta highlight how emotive Mario is only with the use of his animations. The child playing with his Mario's crew dolls was the highlight of comedy in this game.
Considering the game is short, a manageable difficulty (especially if you choose easy) and I've heard it's great, I have no reason not to get it.
But I'm mulling over if I want to use my remaining Game Voucher for it. I guess it depends if there's some other first-party game I really want to get soon.
I only tried Super Mario RPG for a bit on Wii VC back in the day and was too obtuse I suppose to stick with it.
