"The gameplay is quite solid and pretty familiar to those that played the GameCube title. There are a variety of mansions to play through, and each mansion is divided into five missions. While each mission you have the freedom to explore as much of the mansion as possible, the player can be limited based on the inability to find a proper key or method to proceed. After the five missions, the player will deal with a major boss who possesses the Dark Moon piece. There is a secret mission if the player found all of the Boos within the mansion (one per mission). Basically the player must reveal a hidden object with the Dark Light which a Boo has made hidden. The player then does a ghost battle with the Boo.", writes NintendoFuse.
