One day, Princess Toadstool, or Peach, is on a trip to Rougeport, the town of pirates, theives, and other assorted criminals. Peach's trusted caretaker Toadsworth is, of course, making sure she stays out of trouble-but he is also not letting her have any fun. So she sneaks away while she is not looking at and a street vendor catches her eye. The mysterious vender tells her that he has a box that only a purehearted person can open, and inside is the key to vast treasure! Peach succeeds in opening the box, which contains a map. She sends the map and a letter to Mario...but by the time he gets to Rougeport, Peach is gone! Mario begins to search for her, and eventually discovers that the map can lead to the seven Crystal Stars-the mystical keys to opening a door far beneath Rougeport that is said to contain the greatest treasure in the world-The Thousand-Year Door! Mario then sets off to gather the stars, and find Peach. Along the way, he meets new friends and makes new enemies-all in his... Written by Anonymous

In the scene where Peach takes a data disk from Grodus' room and puts it in his computer, the image shown on the computer screen is the start-up theme for the Famicom Disk System, an add-on for the Famicom (a.k.a. Nintendo Entertainment System) released only in Japan. The Disk System used floppy-like disks instead of cartridges and helped to pioneer the concept of saving game progress. Some of Nintendo's most famous games, such as Metroid and The Legend of Zelda, were first released on this add-on system. See more »

A worthy successor to Paper Mario
7 November 2004 | by (Cape Cod) – See all my reviews

The story is more complex than any other Mario game, it even has an ongoing sub plot about Luigi's adventures. I laughed out loud at some of the stuff Luigi claimed to have done. There are a lot of laugh out loud moments, my favorite is when at the beginning of the game when you ask where the Princess is, a thug responds 'Why are you after this chick anyway? She owe you money?"

The main villains, the x-nauts, seem like a clever parody of overly sci-fi Sonic baddies. You play as King Koopa in a few wonderfully done special stages that mimic the original Super Mario Brothers, and peach teaches a computer how to *love* in an early story scene. If you loved Paper Mario, or even if you didn't, or even if you just want to see Mario get involved with the mob (it happens) Then this is a MUST-HAVE game. If you have a GameCube, you owe it to yourself to buy this.
