    It's not quite the flagship title you might expect for a Nintendo launch, but Luigi's Mansion is still a must-have.
  2. One of the most entertaining games I’ve played in a long time.
  3. 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.
  4. The animation is first rate and there are no load times to speak of.
  5. 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.
  6. 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]
