One Hit Pixel Review: Luigi's Mansion 2

One Hit Pixel: "With the release of the Nintendo Gamecube, many had anticipated a follow-up to the system seller for the Nintendo 64 - Super Mario 64. What they got was Luigi’s Mansion, a spooky action game where Mario’s often side-lined brother got the spotlight for the first (official) time. Despite not being the classic Mario we expected, Luigi’s first foray into ghost-busting was a bit of a welcome departure, offering plenty of atmosphere and action in the face of its rather short run-time. Over ten years later, in what Nintendo have dubbed “The Year of Luigi”; the moustached green hat plumber dons the Poltergust and a flashlight once more in Luigi’s Mansion 2. Is this an inspired sequel for one of Nintendo’s forgotten gems, or should it be left in the attic gathering dust?" (3DS, Luigi's Mansion 2, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon) A-/A+
