    GHOSTS! GHOSTS EVERYWHERE!!!

    Luigi's Mansion is a rather unusual Mario game. Firstly, Luigi finally gets the center stage this time around and second, there is no platforming. In fact, it isn't a platformer at all. It's a run of the mill adventure g... Read Full Review

    It was a great start to the gamecube.

    Luigi's Mansion was one of the first games released on the gamecube and i thought that it was great that the creators of Mario thought of something new instead of the same 'Mario saving Princess Peach'. This time its Lui... Read Full Review

    It's innovative, imaginative and interesting, yet Luigi's Mansion suffers from a lack of variety and ultimately falls short of its potential. The game starts off when Luigi receives a letter saying that he's won a ma... Read Full Review

    Does this capture the fright-geist of the gaming age and does it stand a ghost of a chance against other Cube titles?

    It’s hard to think that people got in such a hissy fit over this launch game. Luigi took centre stage over the infinitely more popular Mario – it was akin to being offered an ice cream and being served Tesco Value Soft S... Read Full Review

    I ain't afraid of no Boo. But Luigi is.

    Luigi's Mansion is great, but its just too short....

    Ok Luigi's Mansion for GC its a great game, but the downside is, its extremely short, the average gamer could beat it in about 6 to 9 hours. Dispite the fact of how short the game is, the visuals of the game are good, an... Read Full Review

    Luigi's Mansion is a sharp and interesting new take for Nintendo.

    Luigi's Mansion was a game I had heard about and I fancied giving it a shot. I was surprised to find that it had a very unique storyline in the Nintendo series, and one that didn't fall apart or was too complex to unders... Read Full Review

    Luigi's second solo appearance does not dissapoint.

    For his second solo game ("Mario is Missing" being the first), Luigi makes quite a show for himself in this game. Not only does it manage to live up to the standards that were set by the other games in the Mario series, ... Read Full Review
