In my home, we love gaming. A lot. In fact, the clear favorite game franchise in our family would have to be Mario Bros. and their many affiliated games for the Nintendo family of gaming systems. Everyone, from young to ancient, can't get enough of this pair of plumbers and their pals.
So when we learned that the GameCube classic, Luigi's Mansion, was now available for the Nintendo 3DS, we were all really excited. This classic, spooky tale now with awesome 3D graphics?! Sign us up!
My awesome friends at Nintendo hooked us up not only with a copy of this fantastic, retro classic, but also with an adult Luigi costume and a special SUPER bright flashlight, which is inspired by this game. PERFECT, and just in time for Halloween!
If you're not familiar with Luigi's Mansion, check out this official trailer below. It's not too spooky, and is suitable for all viewers.
The kids were so thrilled that they could play this on the 3DS. Our ancient GameCube kicked the bucket quite some time ago, so they haven't been able to enjoy GameCube exclusive games....Till now!
Sophie was the first to try her hand at rescuing Mario in this creepy mansion. She loves the graphics and all of the cool puzzle games. The 3D mode is also really neat, especially if you're used to the old school GameCube version of the game.
This game is a fairly quick play, and most experienced Mario fans can finish the game in a weekend. The storyline is fun, though, the games addicting, and who doesn't love a reason to chill with Mario, Luigi, and their spooky friends?!
The ONLY criticism I have of this game is that the controls are a little tricky to get used to. The adaptation from GameCube to 3DS controls had to be tricky to engineer, and it is a little tricky to get used to. The timing may seem a little off before you get the hang of it. This is easily overcome, though, but is a little odd at first.
Definitely check this out if you're into classic Mario Bros. or are looking to add to your 3DS game collection!
