in my opinion, yes. The game is so tedious and boring, that it's a chore to actually play the game. I would watch some walkthroughs on YouTube so see if it's something you're interested in. I completely agree with LM, though. Other Paper Mario games (even Super Paper Mario, which wasn't really a Paper Mario game, but was pretty good in its own right) were hard to put down. I actually wanted to continue to play them. If I could never play Sticker Star again, that would be perfectly fine.

The biggest problem I have with the game is its story progression. Sometimes, the story requires a special sticker in order to progress the plot. That would be fine if the stickers were found in the natural story progression. However, many times it requires backtracking to a level previously cleared to find the hidden sticker. The game gives no clear indication on where to find the sticker in question, so many times the best option would be to go to every cleared individual level and hope that the sticker is hidden in that level--or just use a game guide. There's a difference between being hand holding and overly helpful (Skyward Sword), and not giving you any clear indication on what the fuck to do (Sticker Star). I wish the game had a balance between allowing gamers to explore the world, while at the same time giving them an indication on where to go next.

If you want something like the original or The Thousand Year Door, you've bought the wrong game. Outside of the turn based mechanics, Sticker Star has removed all RPG elements out of the game. There's no party members, no experience points, no character progression, the story progression is confusing and terrible, and the story is horrendous. While I agree that most Mario games do not need a deep story, this isn't just some Mario game. It's a game that's almost entirely based around the story, the characters, the dialog, and the RPG gameplay. The game has removed almost all the staples that are great from the Paper Mario series. What we're left with is a boring, tedious mess of a game.

I want to get it for Christmas. I hear it's a great Zelda 2 clone.

It looks like a prequel to Dark Souls. If you've read much of the lore and compared it to the trailer, that seems like the most obvious answer. There are dragons in the game, opposed to drakes, so it would probably be before the time that Seath the Scaleless betrayed his own kind.

Since it was all CGI, nothing is known about how the game will play. However, I'll willing to bet it will be similar to Demon's/Dark Souls, with some tweaks here and there.

I wonder if Wii U gamers will get a chance to die? I certainty hope so. This series needs to be played by all.
