Luigi's Mansion- Nintendo 3DS Review

Luigi's Mansion for the 3ds is a remake of the original on the Nintendo Game Cube. I have not played the original so I can't really compare the 2 but I heard there is slight differences plus this version has a co-op mode.

The Plot

Luigi won a mansion through a contest but there is a catch, the place is full of ghosts! On top of that, Mario who went ahead of Luigi to check out the mansion got captured by King Boo inside a ghost painting. It is up to Luigi to save his brother and capture the ghosts in his Poltergust 3000.


You can control Luigi with the circle pad, and the Poltergust 3000 with the R button and reserve suck with the L button. To aim the Poltergust 3000 you can use motion controls, or the D pad. This game doesn't use much of the stylus except for looking through the mansion map and item screen.

To beat the game you have to go through 3 floors of the mansion, plus a basement, and catch all the portrait ghosts and boos. Once you complete the 3 main areas the final area key unlocks the room where you can go and defeat King Boo and save Mario.

My Review

I loved this game from start to finish despite some parts being frustrating for me. Even though, some parts were hard to complete I never gave up and I'm glad I did. I liked how each portrait ghost had a different way to beat them and it was sort of puzzle to figure out their weakness. I give this game an 9/10.
