    This Luigi's Mansion game is exactly like the one you just (or should have) played 17 years ago.

Whereas the Luigi's Mansion game on the GameCube manages to become a very great game to collect in your average GameCube collection, this Luigi's Mansion game has missed opportunities to add more features to distinguish it from being another generic port with nothing new added and give it more replay value. In short terms, there's hardly anything new added to the game to make it more than just Luigi's Mansion on the 3DS. Expand

    This was my first game cube game that I owned and I played the game alot having a blast. What confuses me is why release this on the 3ds and not switch? 3ds port has terrible graphics and it lost potential as a switch game. At least they added some bonus contntent for it.

    The same game you already know but on 3ds. If you really really loved the original, or feel you missed out on a bit of history not playing it at the time, then this game will have something for you. It's a basic port with a few issues, but Luigi's Mansion still remains a charming and enjoyable game.

    What should be a good game is held back by frustratingly bad controls and a lack of reliable fast-travel throughout the sprawling map. If Grezzo and Nintendo had added more quality-of-life features from the vastly superior Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (a very good game which you should play), we'd have a great remake of a GameCube classic.

    Luigi está de vuelta con una aventura que mejora a aquella mítica aventura que pudimos disfrutar en la GameCube.

Por otra parte, la simpleza de los desafíos y la escasa duración que posee pueden llegar a jugar una mala pasada en su contra, ya que a la larga es un título muy poco rejugable. Pero, aún con eso, Luigi's Mansion es uno de los imprescindibles del catálogo de 3DS. Expand

    A short yet sweet charming game that will have you hooked every minute. A perfect Halloween game!

    First time playing a Luigi's mansion game and this was a nice start. The game didn't exceed my expectations or anything but it was fun to go through. The controls were a bit annoying though and didn't feel smooth or accurate, that was my biggest issue with the game. Loved the music and the feel of the game though! It was very charming.

    Short but sweet perfectly sums up Luigi's haunted quest. Very little has changed in the transition from GameCube to 3DS, except for slightly inferior visuals and way worse controls...unless using the Circle Pad Pro. With the added benefit of the attachment, Luigi's Mansion plays exceptionally well, and is an enjoyable, if easy, romp through the spooky mansion that really kicked off Luigi's gaming career.

    Luigi's Mansion 3DS brings back the old classic of the GameCube for both players that never played the original and players that played it hundreds of times. That Luigi is easily scared makes him a perfect guy to play around in a ghost mansion.

    3DS - It wasn't simple to bring a gamecube title to a portable console, and at the end of its life, but Luigi's Mansion on 3DS has something to tell on this generation of console. Some problems of the original game remain in the porting process, especially backtracking and clunky controls, but they don't ruin the experience with the game.
