Luigi's Mansion User Reviews

9.0

| - [ Nintendo-based Horror/Fantasy at it's Finest ] - |

The good:



- Wonderfully thorough game play with a touch of creepy, cartoony suspense

- A great soundtrack throughout, especially while navigating the corridors of the mansion

- Vibrant, creative, and personally unique boss portrait ghosts included

The bad:



- The simple, cloned ghost enemies contained in this game are quite a bore as well as a nagging annoyance

- Your character lacks a lot of basic 3D-wandering adventure-based mobility

Summary:




[ Introduction ]

This certain Gamecube game was one of the first to really get me hooked onto the whole GCN-based adventure perspective, as well as the aspect of the whole horror/suspense genre, but I doubt I'll be taking it any farther than this title. It was both a creative, colourful puzzle as much as it was a Super Mario-based 3D roaming video game, since the main object of the game was to catch every "portrait ghost" that had been released into the spooky mansion thanks to King Boo and his minions. I also believe that the entire gaming environment centered throughout an old abandoned...

Short Spook

Summary:

For Nintendo it seemed as if each console that make has to be launched with Mario title. Technically the Gamecube managed that too, but the actual game released wasn't quite the one people expected. For a start it's not a platform game, and the starring role belongs to the eternal understudy, Luigi.

Luigi wins a mansion in a contest he didn't enter. Of course nobody in the Mario universe finds this in the least bit suspicious, so Mario says he will meet his brother at his new pad (not quite the same as having a princess waiting for you though). When Luigi does finally arrive his brother is n...

Spring Cleaning.

The good:

Luigi is the main character; being able to play as Luigi.
Decent Graphics.
Fun concept.
Puzzling at some points.
Large variety of ghosts.
Catchy tune.

The bad:

Too simple.

Summary:

Luigi finally stars in his own game for once, after being overshadowed by his brother for so long. In Luigi's Mansion, Luigi is the one that's doing the saving; and this time, he's going to save his brother, Mario! With a fun and innovative concept of capturing ghosts at a haunted mansion where his brother is trapped in, Luigi's mansion is one of the earliest games for the GameCube, and one of the best, in my opinion.

The character has to wield a vacuum cleaner called the Poltergust 3000 (Which makes an appearance in Mario Power Tennis as Luigi's Defensive Power Shot as well as Mario & Luigi...

Luigi's the Hero?

The good:

1. Luig's first platform, and it's actually worth playing!
2. It's something new and unlike all the other Mario games where he is the hero always trying to save Princess Peach from Bowser.
3. The music fits the game well and makes it more lively and creepy.
4. There are different ghost types then just one making the game more exciting and unexpected.
5. Collecting money for a prize mansion at the end adds to more fun you'll have in the game, this will also give you more determination to collect as much money as possible.
6. For this game to be only played on the Gamecube the graphics are fairly good.
7. Nice storyline that appears just enough to get you by throughout the whole game, from beginning to end.

The bad:

1. The graphics could look more lively so to make you think you are actually there in the game.
2. Bosses and ghosts themselves could be more hard and not so easy to beat as they already are.

Summary:

When the Gamecube was first released Luigi's Mansion was the first game I bought to play on that console. Not only did I really enjoy it but it was also a really fun game that was worth playing. I was also interested in playing the game when I saw that this time it was Luigi's turn to play the part of the hero in the game, no longer was it Mario himself. This opened up the game to something new and not so alike the other Super Mario Series games.

At the beginning of Luigi's first platform game, Luigi starts out searching for this mansion he has mysteriously won from a contest that he didn't ...

Luigi the Hero

The good:

+Luigi's the hero this time!
+Graphics are amazing
+Gameplay is excellent
+Good storyline
+Controls are easy

The bad:

-It won't take long to get sick of

Summary:

Usually it is Mario doing the saving, but this time it is the other way around. Luigi has won a mansion in a contest that he never even entered! His suspicions tell him something is up so Mario volunteers to go and check out the mansion to see if it is alright. Luigi doesn't hear from Mario in a while and goes to check out his new mansion himself. While on his way he runs into a funny looking man who gives him a special machine, the Polterguest 3000. This backpack vacuum is only good for one thing, catching ghost.
The gameplay takes you through loads of levels in this huge mansion. Th...

Mama-Mia! Luigi finally gets-a his own game-a!

The good:

Incredible Graphics
Unique Gameplay
Everything Other Than The Game's Length!

The bad:

Slightly Too Short

Summary:

Finally, after years of waiting, the green Plumber finally gets his own game! And what a game it is!

Luigi has won a mansion in a contest which he didn't even enter. He invites his brother, Mario (who is away at the time) to visit him at the mansion. Upon arriving, Luigi finds the place haunted! He speaks to a Toad, who accompanied Princess Peach to the mansion - but Peach ran away scared! Luigi heads up the stair and encounters a group of Ghosts, before a little Professor named Elvin Gadd appears with a vacuum cleaner named the "Poltergust 3000". This device is capable of sucking in Ghosts ...
