Alpha Dream and Nintendo have slathered detail on every aspect of the game, expanding the experience beyond what Partners In Time brought to the franchise. Even better, there's little of the repetition or control complexity that bogged down that entry. It's easy to recommend to just about any Nintendo DS owner, a near-perfect correction from the slight misstep that was Partners In Time.
Even if you don't consider RPGs your "thing" it's worth checking out what Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story has to offer, especially if you've never played a Mario & Luigi game before. This is some of the best content to grace the Nintendo DS, a gorgeously produced game that delivers on all fronts. Find a place for it on your list of games to play this year".
