description

Up in Star Haven, there exists a Star Wand that allows the stars to grant wishes to those who are pure of heart. The Star Wand is looked over by the Seven Star Spirits, who protect it in its sanctuary. However, Bowser attacks Star Haven, steals the Star Wand, and locks up the Star Spirits so that they cannot challenge his power. With his new powers, Bowser defeats Mario and lifts Princess Peach's castle into the air, taking her and all her guests as prisoners. Now, the only way to challenge Bowser's unbridled power is to rescue all seven Star Spirits, which have been imprisoned all over the land.

Paper Mario is the follow-up to Super Mario RPG: Legend Of The Seven Stars for Super Nintendo. Basically, this is an RPG set in the Mario universe. Mario has the ability to gain experience and grow levels by defeating enemies and bosses. Mario also has the ability to recruit teammates to help him out in battle. As well, Mario can collect badges that will help his combat abilities, star pieces that he can trade for badges, and more items that he can use throughout the game. The Star Spirits will also aid him in his quest.

Like Super Mario RPG before it, Paper Mario's graphics are very unique to any other game. All the characters are 2D within a fully 3D world. This gives the feeling that each character is made out of "paper".

Mario Story
Fantastic Mario RPG. Only drawback is that it is in Japanese. That doesn't change the fact that this is a brilliant game. Highly Recommended.

Great Action / RPG game!!!
It may not be as good as Super Mario RPG, but Mario Story is a great game!

The paper graphics may be a little strange at first, but as you play, you tend to get used to it.

The story to this game is amazing, but easy enough for kids to understand. King Koopa has broken into the sacred area and stolen the star rod which is used to make him invincible and have incredible power! While this is happening, Princess Peach invites Mario to her castle only to find out the King Koopa has built a castle under Princess Peach's castle and raises it to the sky. Mario tries to stop King Koopa, but fails. King Koopa throws Mario out into the sky and takes a long fall to the ground where he is visited by the 7 star spirits. Mario must save the 7 star spirits, each giving Mario new unique star spirit abilities used to help him in his quest. Meet many allies like Goomba, Bombette, Koopa, Parakoopa, Boo, Watt, and Lakitu each with special abilities during battle and outside of battle.

The battle system is action and turn based. Mario usually goes first and like in Super Mario RPG, you have to press A at the right times, rapidly press A, hold down left, etc.

This game isn't too long, but is not that short either. It is enough to keep you going for quite a while and has many secrets to keep you playing and eventually make it to King Koopa and show him who is boss!

Fantastic game where knowing Japanese will help, but if you have played Paper Mario before, Mario Story will be easy. They are basically the same game. I have not found any differences between the Japanese and American versions other than the Japanese title screen loading quicker.
