User Rating: 9.5 | Mario & Luigi RPG 3!!! DS
It has been quite a while since Luigi played a significant role in a Nintendo game, but it surprised me when Luigi was shown at his brother's side, sleeping through the only Bowser Battle that he was ever present for. Mario and his scaredy-cat sibling must journey through different areas of the Mushroom Kingdom, completing many quests and leveling up in order to gain access to some of the fancier stores in Toad Town. Much of the fun I had with this game is Fawful, the weirdest (and craziest) villain I have ever seen in my life. There isn't much replay value after you complete the story, however it is very satisfying to collect different badges and styles of gloves, boots, and shells. Shells? Oh, yeah. In Bowser's Inside Story, you get to play as....BOWSER! The Koopa King can scorch anything's eyebrows off (whether it has eyebrows or not) and punch rocks and crazed wildlife. All in All, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is a great addition to the franchise. It has much more replay value than you'd think, and like Pokemon before it, it grows highly addicting.
