Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon Review (3DS) | Nintendo Okie

Tony Miller of Nintendo Okie writes, "Way back in the year 2001 a few things happened, well two really. The first was that in March of that year I married my beautiful wife. The second, and more relevant to this subject, is that the GameCube launched in North America. With it came a small handful of games, one of which starred Luigi. People were up in arms because Luigi’s Mansion wasn’t the Mario game that they wanted. That was a game that ended up being very special to me because I was playing that game the day my daughter was born, well sort of. As a result the game holds a special place in my gaming library and I pull it off the shelf at least once a year to play it. There aren’t many secrets left in that game for me to uncover and I can roll through it in a couple of lengthy play sessions. It’s sort of a family entertainment thing for us around Halloween.

For years I’ve been practically begging Nintendo for a sequel to the game and right around the time that the 3DS was announced so too was a sequel to Luigi’s Mansion. Then delays kept happening and dates kept getting pushed. I was beginning to worry that the game was never going to come out and I was worried that being on a handheld meant it wasn’t going to live up to the expectations I had set for it. Well, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is out. Was the wait worth it?" (3DS, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon) 5/5
