I) Introduction
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Paper Mario was the long awaited sequel to Super Mario RPG for the SNES. I remember
reading about it in magazines and looking at screenshots of "Mario RPG 2" and then I
finally got my hands on it. While the commercials make it look like an Elmo game, Paper
Mario is an immense RPG that doesn't focus on the graphics, but the gameplay. Even
though you might beat it in a week, Paper Mario's star pieces and badges will keep
you coming back.
