  1. One of the most entertaining games I’ve played in a long time.
  2. The mansion is beautiful. From the vacuum cleaner sucking up dust and objects such as tablecloths, to the mirrors and lighting effects, Luigi's Mansion is very impressive.
  3. If you can overlook the strange nature of this title, the gameplay is brilliant and up to par with Miyamoto's best. [Nov 2001, p.114]
  4. This game was created with gamers in mind it combines a great mix of fun with a great story and best of all a franchise character to suck you in.

    It's not quite the flagship title you might expect for a Nintendo launch, but Luigi's Mansion is still a must-have.
  6. The animation is first rate and there are no load times to speak of.

    It's a very nice mansion. I just feel sorry for the ghosts that have got captured. I love the things about the mansion. The mansion is big and I love it! I wish they do a second game of it. Full Review »

    Great fun! Despite only having six hours of gameplay, unlike other games, you never get bored towards the end. Nintendo have finally used Luigi without Mario hobbling beside him like he always does. Highly Recomended! Full Review »
