guys, they are completely different genres of games. OP, do you want an RPG or an Action/Adventure/Puzzle game?
As for my personal view on paper mario. I hate it. After the success of super mario rpg (one of the best games ever made) they promised a sequel. Well finally that sequal rolled around on another system... and it wasnt mario rpg anymore. It was paper mario, a preschool level rpg where 1's,2's and 3's were normal numbers for dmg and hp. Mario rpg was more 100's than 1s and 2s.
Nintendo tends to forget that if it aint broke, dont fix it. In order to appeal to small children they killed mario rpg and the legacy it could have brought them.
(note, mario rpg was developed by square. They dropped squaresoft and went with a developement team known as Intelligent Systems. Bad move in my opinion)

Prince of Persia was great, I played them on the computer, but once you've played a couple, they aren't all that different. I'm not getting it for wii, not sure if I'm gonna get paper mario either, will wait to see what people think.
its a side scrolling rpg with 2d cutouts in a 3d world. Turn based combat when you run into enemies. It has some sort of story like, defeat the boss of so and so. Level up and your attacks will go from 1 dmg to 2 dmg.
