Summary: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is a stellar example of a 3DS game that utilizes the hardware to its known limits, providing both a single- and multiplayer experience that is unique, engaging and worth coming back to time and time again.
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.
