    Luigi's Mansion

    Luigi's Mansion may not be long, but the unique concept and feel of the game make it worth to reach for in the shelves.

    While Mario gets all the fame, Luigi is forced to play the sidekick for his older brother in several games. Yet with Luigi's Mansion, this tradition finally takes a twist for the better of Luigi. Instead of hopping from ... Read Full Review

    It's yet another familiar entry into the New Super Mario Bros series. But it's definitely the best so far.

    Last year has been a significant one for the New Super Mario Bros series, since Nintendo had released two games of it in that year. That isn't to be said it was a very good one. The earlier one, New Super Mario Bros 2, r... Read Full Review

    Fun, but totally lacking in originality, NSMB2 is one of Mario's weaker outings, which of course doesn't mean it's bad.

    There is a big gap between the old classics and the New Super Mario Bros games. While the old ones are full of awesome memories, the new ones try to bring back that classic feel again, while offering the player at the sa... Read Full Review
