Whether you're catapulting Bowser with a Shy-Guy slingshot or filling Luigi's face with picnic food, the whole game is a ton of fun. A couple of the bosses require too much tedium, and the game does drag a bit near the end, but these are minor complaints. It's rare for an RPG to incorporate so many different types of gameplay, yet Inside Story does so without sacrificing the quality of any individual part. Bowser and Mario's respective sections could theoretically stand alone as separate titles, and perhaps that's why their collective adventure is filled to the brim with thrills and giggles. Put on a scowl and get out your spikes: being Bowser is a total blast.
