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

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.

Expert Review

Realm of Gaming
27 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Back in 2001 Luigi was given a chance to step out of his older brother's shadow and face off against spooky specters in a game meant to show off the capabilities of the Nintendo GameCube: Luigi's Mansion . It would take almost twelve years before Luigi once again returns to the ghost-catching business in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for the Nintendo 3DS. Several changes have been made to the gameplay mechanics of the first game.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

GameTrailers
21 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Usually content to tag along and back up his more famous brother, Luigi hasn’t been in the spotlight since his ghost-busting antics on the Nintendo GameCube. The soft-spoken sibling must have remembered that busting makes him feel good, because a decade later the other Mario brother is back in Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. It’s a pro job all around, providing a solid balance of kooky and spooky with plenty of ghouls to grab and puzzles to ponder.

  • Conclusion: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is a completely different type of game from the first, and it’s better in every single way. It’s tougher, lengthier, more creative, more varied, and just plain more fun. Regardless of how you felt about the GameCube original, this is easily one of the best games on the 3DS to date. The only scary thing about it is that it took 12 years for Luigi to finally see stars.

Luigi’s Mansion 2

Spieletester.com
26 September 2013
  • Summary: Sein Leben lang im Schatten des eigenen Bruders zu stehen, führt bei vielen dazu sich möglichst deutlich daneben zu benehmen, um wenigstens ein bisschen Anerkennung einzuheimsen. Nicht so der grün-hosige Luigi, der sich nun schon zum zweiten Mal im eigenen Rampenlicht beweisen und reichlich Gutes tun kann. Dass er dabei mehrmals bis zum Herzinfarkt geängstigt wird, ist nur eine Begleiterscheinung seines erneuten Ausfluges in die Gruselgefilde des Professor I. Gidd.
  • Pros: Super sympathischer Luigi, Viele Rätsel, Überall gibt es etwas zu erforschen, Tolle 3D-Darstellung, Taktische Scharmützel, Fordernde Boss-Gefechte, Langzeitmotivation, Extrem abwechslungsreich, Kurzweiliger Multiplayer auch ohne Vollversion…
  • Cons: …mit etwas zu wenig Modi, Keine Sprachausgabe, Ungenaues Anvisieren, Nerviger Professor I. Gidd
