Both excellent games. Each entry in the New series gets better, I'd put NSMB2 miles beyond the original DS game in terms of level design and polish, but a bit behind NSMBU.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star is another fun entry in the series and the sticker mechanic, while different, is still quite fun.

Funny enough, one gets bashed for being more of the same while the other gets bashed for not being more of the same.

NSMB2 is great fun a good 2d mario platformer no more no less if you liked SMW and SMB3 youll like it paper mario is a good turn based game and is really fun decent length 20 hours but it does have some flaws as in progression is more zelda like as in you find health upgrades and you also use items to attack

I haven't done SMB2 but wth with all this about the gold coins? I don't play Mario to get rich. That what Wario is for.

There is a full game beyond collecting coins with 8 worlds like regular NSMB games so it's not like you're forced to collect a million coins if you don't want.

NSMB2 is a lot of fun if you haven't gotten bored of the Mario platforming formula yet. If you liked NSMB or NSMBWii, get it!

The Mario fan base is not some giant hivemind; the different subsets want different things from different series with different genres with different histories in different situations. Why don't people get that?

Paper mario is bashed because its stripped down, not because its not more of the same. Its no longer an rpg, its an rpg lite, which is y ppl bash it.

NSMB2 is bashed cuz its exactly the same as the wii versions and its handheld prequel, save for a few additions. Some ppl feel its too similar.

With rpgs, its ok to be similar because u are focused on other things, such as story or character progression. With a platformer, not everyone wants more of the same all the time. Basically the NSMB series is 4 very similar games that the casual eye would assume to be the same without looking at the title.

Anyway, im only disappointed because NSMB2 doesnt hav online play :(
