Great Time Spent Playing

Summary: While I never got to play Luigi's Mansion on the GameCube, I can honestly say this game made me want to find a copy. It was both fun, frustrating, and adorable. It was easy to control for the most part, however some segments of the game seemed rather cheap--such as overloading Luigi with ghosts to capture, sneak attacks that were impossible to avoid unless you had prior knowledge of the hidden ghost, rat, or bat, and certain boss battles that didn't feel very fair when...
Innovative game play from most games I've played before

Summary: Ive never played any of the other Luigi Mansion titles, so this one was my first, and I cna say, it was quite refreshing to play. The game play was a stray from most other games I ever played, and I liked how you were rewarded with upgrades along the way. And don't let this game fool you. It's not a kiddie game. There were some pretty hard challenges and puzzles in the game. This is a great game if you are the type to pick up and go.

Summary: It's almost okay. In comparison to the original Luigi's Mansion, this game doesn't feel nearly as fun. I think the way the game is mission based makes it tedious because you end up going through the same zones repeatedly. The inability to save the game except after missions is also lame. Additionally, the enemies in the game are all quite alike and it was boring to kill the same ones over and over.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprise by this game. Usually I do not get engrossed by Mario (or Luigi) games, rather I find them mindless fun to enjoy for a few hours. On the other hand, Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon had me entertained, laughing, and wanting more! I would recommend this game for children and adults alike. It is a must own for the Nintendo 3DS!
Summary: This game is fun, but it became so hard that I had to play it with my laptop opened up to "cheats" to get through the levels. I made it through quite a few levels with help, but it got so hard that I gave up. No fun to be so frustrated.
Summary: Feels like doing the same thing over and over. I find it hard to play because it seems like this game was made for a different system. Sometimes you are looking for things that are off of the screen and you don't really know where to go. Not very intuitive. The old Luigi's mansion didn't feel so repetitive and boring. The graphics are great but the controls are too complicated. I really can't hold 4 buttons at the same time and walk Luigi around with the control stick.
Summary: The Good: Fantastic visuals and attention to detail, great combat systems, exploring the areas is fun The Bad: Repetitive objectives and enemies, gets too frustrating towards the end, game runs out of steam less than half-way Luigi’s Mansion was a cult hit back on the GameCube, but didn’t see much commercial success. The 3DS seems like a perfect home for the sequel so Nintendo went for it.
Summary: I got this as a b-day present to myself to play on my new 3DS. While that goes without saying, this is a fun game. But IT IS FRUSTRATING! I had to go to youtube to figure out what to do as the directions are very vague. The graphics ARE amazing and playing it in 3D is nothing to sneeze at, though I recommend taking breaks as you might get a headache. I like the haunted house feel of the game, but I wish there was a save button!
Summary: If my New Super Luigi U review was any indication, Luigi is my favorite Nintendo character. 'Nuff said. As for my back story: in early 2002, my parents bought me a Gamecube for my birthday in first grade. With it, I got Wave Race , and, oh yes, the original Luigi's Mansion . His scared and nervous attitude was absolutely hilarious and the game was even frightening at some points. I even required a relative to come over and play the game with me.
