Mario has all the glory when it comes to Nintendo. His
brother Luigi had one other attempt at his own game but
that was terrible (Mario is Missing on Super Nintendo).
Nintendo pulled this game out of their pocket and what
they came up with is a ghostbuster type game. Luigi's
has to save Mario for once. There is no princess but one
new character, Professor E. Gadd.
It all starts when Luigi receives a strange letter from
Mario saying he won a mansion in a contest, even though
he never entered any contest to begin with.
Then the game starts where your inside the mansion with
no clue what is going on, or what to expect. Then enters
Professor E. Gadd, the small bald genius who explains
everything to you.
The game has a lot of humor, and its fun sucking up the
ghosts. The Poltergeist 3000 has many uses. It can also
be used to shoot objects or spray a variety of ammunition
such as fire, ice, and water and of coarse suck of the
gouls.When it comes to levels, the game is just one big
level. You go from room to room capturing ghosts and collecting
keys. Some rooms have bosses. Each boss has their own
unique character traits and weaknesses that you have to
figure out. One boss you have to trick into playing an
old familiar song. Also a ghost taking a shower.....
I am not going to give away any more. I recommend buying
this game, a Players Choice, which usually go for $19.99
or less for used. It is a good game for any Mario and
Controlling Luigi's and his Poltergeist 3000 (vacuum cleaner)
can be tedious at first. Once you have the controls figured
out your golden. The game is made for mainly Nintendo's
younger crowd, it can be fun for anyone though. Sadly,
it only takes 6-8 hours to beat, that's also with getting
all the hidden secrets.
The Lighting is real nice, Nintendo takes full advantage
of their hardware with mirror reflections and lighting
effects. Then the main enemies of the game are mostly
transparent, sometimes to find them you have to find their
shadows or shine them with your flashlight. Its interesting
to play a Ghoul game with Luigi as the main character,
with great graphics.
