Not really. Super Paper Mario was vindicated by history and became a cult classic (like past Zeldas post-OoT) and while most still do hate Sticker Star, Color Splash's reception is moving up from being mixed only because the hatedom have an active target against The Origami King.
Paper Mario is going through the same trappings Zelda's been through. People always disliked new Zeldas because they weren't Ocarina of Time 2 or OoT-ish enough until Breath of the Wild silenced that (for a time). And with Paper Mario, people are always disliking new ones because they're not The Thousand-Year Door 2 or TYYD-ish.
