I think M&L PIT would've been more fun if there were seperate lands to visit instead of being stuck in a cursed forest. Also, there are no towns to visit.

Well, Bowser's Inside Story rocks so it doesn't matter. Not that I've played PiT.

Partners In Time, despite the underutilized time travel, no SP, and non-free roaming gameplay, is still a very good DS game

I sold my copy it's the worst mario game in my opinion. Superstar Saga is wayyy better.

It's definitely the worst Mario & Luigi game, but I don't know about worst Mario game PERIOD... I intend to replay it after I finish with this playthrough of Superstar Saga, anyway. A quite enjoyable game even if it ISN'T the best. Real shame it's so rare nowadays, though.

I think it would've been more fun had Stuffwell and the nigh-endless stream of tutorials not been included. i know, i'm exaggerating, but it really felt like every time I turned around there was some new power to learn, and a cheesy tutorial session to go along with it. whatever happened to just letting people figure things out on their own? tell 'em the power is there and then let 'em go?

The tutorials are getting annoying just playing Superstar Saga, but such is the norm nowadays. You don't let people try to figure stuff out on their own, because too many of them are too stupid to do so! You think I exaggerate? Just watch random people trying out the Wii demo in Gamestop sometime. It was especially bad with Wario Land: Shake It! (hold the controller sideways, morons!) and Punch-Out!! (everybody kept trying to treat it like a normal punch-at-random game and not learning that it doesn't work like that!)

It's especially annoying with Pokemon. Every single game they have to give you the complete basics on how Pokemon works. They should really provide a "Have you played before?" feature.

I agree with that. I also would have enjoyed Super Paper Mario much more if it had a "Do You Even Give a Crap About This Story?" feature.

that would be so nice. or at least an option to turn the tutorials off or otherwise skip them. I don't know why they got away from that -- you can totally skip tutorials in SMRPG, which is awesome if you're like me and have played that game 963498573948750394875 times already and know half the dialogue by heart and how to complete every single side-quest and get every extra item and yadda-yadda, but i couldn't skip them in PiT.
edit: @Chicken_Brutus: hahaha, the main story was pretty lame for SPM... i'm glad the bosses were quirky enough to keep it going. :3

Bowser's Inside Story is much better than Partners in Time.

I don't skip the story in games. I always want to know what's going on, whether it's what you guys would consider good or not (I have nothing against the story in Super Paper Mario at all...in fact, I rather like it). Now...little touches like "skip the cutscene" for if you die are important, but such things are usually not necessary in Mario games (at least not for seasoned gamers).
I think it's stupid that you can skip the battle tutorials at the beginning of Superstar Saga if you want to, but the jump/hammer/hand power tutorials are unskippable. And move too slowly. sigh

I second the opinion that SPM's story was good.

definitely something I want to hear.

At least SPM has a fun expanded play mode. You can replay all the levels with no tutorials, cutscenes, or any other annoyances.
@Stuffgamer1: I, too, sometimes watch the cutscenes, even if they're skippable. In Sonic Adventure DX, I accidentally skipped a cutscene featuring Sonic and Amy. I wished I hadn't. Sometimes the dialogue really helps.

I thought about getting this game....
But then Bowser's Inside Story was announced

It's great. Just get it. It's Mario.
