Its pretty easy to sum up this game;
What else could it be really? Its an RPG with heavy platform elements set partly inside the body of Bowser. Its basically the Inner-Space of Nintendo games.
The scenario starts crazy, and gets crazier from there.
You explore and manipulate the inside of Bowsers body, which effects Bowser on the outside - who you also control.
You switch between the inside/outside to progress, getting to see the story from both the brothers as well as Bowsers point of view - who, to make things better, has no idea his arch enemy's are inside of him.
The inside is a 2D side-on world, the outside 3/4 like a traditional RPG. The whole structure of the game is metro-vania esq. Thus there's constantly bits where your thinking "how to I get there", only for a new ability to later make to possible.
While the game initially starts of fairly linear, there's plenty to explore when it opens up, and exploration gets rewarded.
The diversity of the games challenges are striking, the battle system solid, and the game is backed with "wtf" moments which are frequently hilarious.
Recommended for fans of RPGs, Nintendo, or just plan mad inventive games.
