Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon

Guide 2 Games
5 March 2014
  • Excerpt: It’s sometimes hard for brothers to get along. Things like sibling rivalry often come between the closest of relatives, especially when one is famous and the other is not as noticed. I often wondered if such was the case with Luigi, the brother of the more well-known Mario. Let’s face it, when your own brother is going up against foes like Bowser, Smithy, the Shadow Queen, and so many others to save the world game after game, it would be easy for the green-wearing...

Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon game review

Boys' Life magazine
29 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The last time Luigi starred in a Nintendo game was back in 2001’s Luigi’s Mansion, which was made for the ancient GameCube. Mario’s cool twin brother really deserves more starring roles. The GameCube offering was good, but the recently released Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is even better. Why root for Luigi? He’s the underdog, and face it: Mario is a little overexposed.
  • Pros: Wonderful game design. Super-nice graphics. Varied online multiplayer rocks.
  • Cons: Insanely hard at times. You can’t save when you want. Story needs more depth.

Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon

DarkStation

  • Conclusion: The moment-to-moment navigation and ghost-busting is so innately enjoyable that it often negated my complaints, though. Mostly, Dark Moon is an excellent adventure game that smartly builds upon one of Nintendo’s most unique and underutilized properties. It could have used a little more balancing and little less padding, but otherwise, this is a grand start to the Year of Luigi.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

Auracore MediaWorks
23 April 2013
  • Summary: Some stumbles with new gameplay don't keep Dark Moon from being a fun romp through a ghost-filled landscape.
  • Pros: Lots of personality in Luigi and how the ghosts interact with him; lots of intractability in the environment; multiplayer mode is fun, despite lack of certain features.
  • Cons: No backstories for ghosts, this time around; multiplayer mode lacks voice chat and persistent lobbies; mission structure is pretty repetitive.

  • Conclusion: Show Luigi a little love, even if he’s no Mario. Better than any Ghostbusters game you might pick up.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

Destructoid
9 April 2013
  • Summary: Despite all of the credit it deserves, the original Luigi's Mansion was a very basic experience, which alienated gamers who were left wanting more. Nintendo fans decried everything from the simplicity, to the lack of replay value, to the lack of variety in the game's mechanics. Thankfully, Dark Moon expands upon the tried-and-true, fun formula of the original and in just about every way transcends it.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

The Gamers Temple
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Luigi certainly fulfills the role of the reluctant hero. Filled with a healthy fear of ghosts and a Dr. McCoy like distaste of teleporters, he nevertheless allows the perpetually peppy and perhaps slightly mad Professor E. Gadd to beam him directly into haunted houses to cleanse them of their ghost troubles.

Review: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is spooky, lovable and exudes charm

GameZone
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: With Nintendo claiming that 2013 is the year of Luigi, Mario's mustached brother had a lot to live up to with Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon on the Nintendo 3DS. As the sequel to the loveable, but imperfect Luigi's Mansion on the GameCube, there have been expectations placed on Dark Moon . Fans of the original will be happy to know that Dark Moon does not disappoint. With great gameplay, comedy and visuals, everything in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon exudes charm.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS) - Review

VGChartz
1 April 2013
  • Excerpt: If there's something strange... in your 3DS... Twelve years and two console generations ago, the Nintendo GameCube debuted not with a traditional Mario game, but with a game starring his cowardly brother, Luigi. Instead of stomping on enemies and jumping to and fro, Luigi was saddled with a vacuum cleaner and tasked with sucking up the many ghosts inside a haunted mansion he had won in a contest.
