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.
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.
Excerpt: The last time I remember anything related to Luigi's Mansion was back on the Gamecube. Nintendo gave the man in green a shot at being the main man for a launch title. Nintendo is giving Mario's brother another shot in what they have dubbed the year of Luigi.
Summary: takes everything the GameCube version did and either slightly improves it or at least keeps it consistent. Sure, some things from the last game were lost due to being a mobile platform now, but the game is still a solid entry and one Nintendo fans should check out.

This time, Luigi isn’t searching for Mario, he isn’t constantly bombarded with poison mushrooms, and he’s practically kidnapped by E. Gadd to fight ghosts. Terrif...
Cons: Nothing pairs better with a touchy 3D screen like tilt controls, am I right? You don’t have to move your 3DS to aim Luigi’s Poltergust 5000, but you’ll definitely want to after trying to trying to look up and down with the X and B buttons while holding down the right bumper to suck in ghosts.
