And anybody who has played Super Mario RPG can't help but say that they love it.
I can say that it is the 5th best Mario RPG and soon to be 6th best after I playe Mario & Luigi 3.
The problem with SMRPG is that the game feels like a RPG Square was making and then pasted a Mario theme over it. They throw in an awkward platforming element and some lame original characters (Geno and Mallow suck) and put it out there.
It is a good game but the Paper Mario and M&L series did a far better job with replicating the Mario feel onto an RPG medium.
