  1. One of the most entertaining games I’ve played in a long time.

    It's not quite the flagship title you might expect for a Nintendo launch, but Luigi's Mansion is still a must-have.
  3. The graphics are top-notch, the sound is catchy and simply lovable, the controls are delightful and the gameplay is original and just so much fun. But the whole thing is dragged down by the frighteningly short game time.
  4. When you’re talking about a Miyamoto launch title, "pretty good" just won’t cut it.
  5. Fun. In fact, it's five or six of the best hours you can spend on any system this year. Unfortunately, that's all that it is.

    Like getting socks for Christmas, it's good and comfortable, but not what we wanted. [Feb 2003, p.96]

    If you are a Mario fan, you'll probably walk out of the store with this one anyway, just don't expect the second coming.

Recuerdo que de pequeño me daba miedo y todo. El juego en si es bueno, quizás a la larga es algo monótono pero el diseño de la mansión y de los personajes es genial. El juego que el hermano de Mario se merecía. Expand

    I really don't see what's so cool about some guy in green tights with a vacuum strapped to his back.
