I'm interested in both but theyre both quite rare and therefore expensive. By expensive I mean more than 20, but as I buy most games that I do pre-owned thats quite a bit in my eyes.
Any opinions on them? Which is the better purchase? Anyone own both?

If you still haven't decided yet, I've definitely say go for Paper Mario! It'll last you the best part of 60 hours, if you're anything like me, anyway. It'll make you laugh, make you smile. And if you get the the final boss without enough firepower in your items range then you'll be tearing your hair out for sure!

I recently went back to finish off all the little errands in the game while picking up a few decent badges in the Pit of 100 Trials, reaching level 80 and leaving and DYING on 91 without saving!! :@

And this was all inspired by reading NGamer's preview on the forthcoming Super Paper Mario. What are the chances it'll be easier to buy this game on day of release than it will be to find a wii in stock?

Cycloon, go and finish Paper Mario... NOW!!! :)

Paper Mario is probably longer. Both kick ass, I never finished either though :'(

I've got both but not played them. My brother has played them though. From watching him play them, Paper Mario is the longer game but I personally don't think there is much between them.

It all depends on what type of game you want to play.

Umm is there a misunderstanding? I had Pikmin ages ago but completed it quickly and since traded it in. The question here I was asking is between Pikmin 2, and Paper Mario?

Pikmin is more timed than number 2 I think, So if you don't like gaming against the clock then number two's probably better.

Both very good, but Pikmin may last you longer. Pikmin 2 expands on it, though and has 2 player.

GAME tend to have Pikmin or Pikmin 2 around on their Gamecube offer (2 for 3), so perhaps you'll get lucky and get Paper Mario too if there's a GAME nearby.

Ebay prices still seem inflated due to the Wii creating renewed interest for old Gamecube games. Also try Blockbuster or Choices for ex-rental copies.
