Pros
+Unique combination of RPG and platformer gameplay aspects that mesh well together
+4 playable characters with their own special abilities alongside additional assist characters who give you even more special abilities
+Great environment and setting to explore and playthrough in both 2D and 3D Point of View
+Colorful cast of characters and narration just like the first two Paper Mario games
+Actual post game content that becomes available once finishing the game

Cons
-Game is too easy in terms of both puzzles and boss fights
-Game is very short, can be beaten within 12-15 hours compared to the previous games which give you 20+ hours
-The badge system and level up system from previous games are gone (minor issue)
-Too much back and forth between areas
