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: 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!
Great fun; more deliberate and less action/jumping than a Mario game

Summary: I hadn't played the Gamecube Luigi's Mansion game but it turned out that the game is still quite fun without. You have a flashlight, a Ghostbuster-style "ghost sucking" device to capture ghosts with, a few other gadgets and then just your wits. The ghosts are not so scary that kids would be completely spooked out but this is definitely not your standard bubbly fun Mario game. In fact Luigi can't jump at all here (must have skipped leg day).
Summary: Our five year old spends a lot of time moving Luigi from one room to another and trying to sort out the puzzles so he can advance to the next stage. It's still a little advanced for him, but it won't take long and we don't mind helping him out in the meantime. I recommend this for anyone that's a fan of the Mario games. It's a great way to entertain your child, at home or on the go, and it's always a blast to see how Luigi is going to react to any given situation.
Summary: I bought this for my 9 year old and he plays it as much as we'll let him. He loves it! It's a good game that easily holds his attention and is just the right level of difficulty for him. He is a pretty experienced game player.
