Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon
25 April 2013
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.
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.
Conclusion: Concept: Luigi returns to the spotlight in a portable adventure filled with laughs, a variety of spooky environments, and intuitive gameplay
Graphics: The multicolored specters pop on the 3DS’ crisp screens, and Luigi’s tentative animations are spot-on
Sound: Professor E. Gadd prattles on like a lovable Ewok, and Luigi hums along with the catchy soundtrack
Playability: A clever control scheme compensates for the lack of an extra circle pad, and the ghost-vacuuming...
