# of LevelsPrologue, and 8 chapters
Controllable CharactersMario, Goombario, Kooper, Bombette, Princess, Parakarry, Bow, Watt, Sushie, Lakilester, and Twink.
StoryAn object called the Star Rod, that can grant wishes, and 7 Star Spirits have been captured by Bowser! He will be using the star rod to grant his own malicious wishes to destroy Mario and The Mushroom Kingdom! Mario must retrieve the rod and rescue the 7 star spirits in this adventure.

Graphics9This game is very colorful and uses 3-D rendering very well! The only exception is that all the characters are as flat as paper, but the paper effect was done quite nicely, I might say.
Sound6Most of the music in this game got its roots from older Mario games. Sound effects in this game aren't all that bad, but they're very repetitive.
Challenge9Although not nearly as difficult as Super Mario RPG, this game provides nice challenges with quizzes, solving puzzles, and of course, fighting enemies RPG-style.
Replay Value8After you beat Bowser the second time and beat the game, you can play it through again to make sure that you get all of the star pieces, badges, and other miscellaneous things. But once you do all that, I really can't think of any reason to play this game over again.
