Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

If you thought their last adventure was insane? In this sequel to Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, the brothers travel back in time to retrieve Princess Peach, only to come face to face with baby versions of themselves, the princess and Bowser. Teaming up with their young selves will soon send Mario and Luigi on a quest of lunatic proportions as players must control both the adult AND baby versions of the Mushroom Kingdom heroes. Players use the top screen to study the land, keep track of the pair of brothers not under their control or maximize combo moves in battle. With twice the Mario brothers and twice the laughs, this massive sidesplitting adventure could only find a home on the dual screens of the Nintendo DS.

By Dr Evil TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What can I say about this game other than "amazing!". The 2 DS screens are filled with colourful and sharp cartoon graphics. The music is some of the best ever to come out of a Mario game and the script is absolutely hilarious with real laugh-out-loud moments, that is very rare with games.

'Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time' is the sequel to excellent Gameboy Advance RPG, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. The brothers travel back in time to retrieve Princess Peach, only to come face to face with baby versions of themselves, the princess and Bowser. Teaming up with their young selves send Mario and Luigi on a quest of lunatic proportions as you must control both the adult and baby versions of the Mushroom Kingdom heroes to save the Princess and her castle from the evil Shrooms.

The game will probably take you about 20-25 hours to complete, depending on how much you want to explore and spend battling enemies to gain items and to level-up, so there is plently of content there to get your money's worth. It is also a game where once you start playing, you will be completely engrossed in the story and will be unable to put it down.

The battle system is turn-based, where you will need to take control of all 4 characters (the adult and baby Mario and Luigi) and learn new attacks and use various items as you progress through the game. This is quite a normal way to battle in an RPG game, but some of the boss battles (especially the one at the end) do drag on a little sometimes.

My only minor niggle about M&L:PiT would be that the game doesn't take advantage of the DS's touch screen controls. The game is played entirely using the d-pad and the buttons.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superstar Game 3 Feb 2006
Mario has always sucseeded when he teamed's up with his hilarious brother.This, as a game delivers a variety of challenging puzzles that will show you hard nintendo's games can be. Not just a succsefull puzzle game, it is also an RPG (role playing game)and is fun watching the two brothers level up. The moves you can use challenge you to use all your skill and knowing were all the buttons are on the DS. Some moves are so creative you just laugh. An amazing game overall and perfect for ds owners FIVE STAR!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Doubt, Absolutely Fantastic! 12 Feb 2006
Verified Purchase
As a DS owner I have not been very impressed by the games for the DS in general.
I have found with the DS that my favourite games tend to be based on the classics. Like Mario Kart, or Mario DS. This game is something far ahead of anything seen on the DS thus far. As a proud owner of Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga this game was long awaited by me. This sequel is a very strong advance on the origional.
This game includes a fun, puzzle based, and RPG like storyline, and most aspects of this game are extremely enjoyable. Although graphics were not advanced at all from the previous game the gameplay is still fantastic, and I really like the battle style, which includes a turn by turn sequence, allowing you to avoid and counter attack throughout.
The touchscreen is not used very much at all, (which i liked) and the controls were based very much on the ABXY buttons, which is a nice change.
All in all a very strong good game, and I highly reccomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nintendo hits another one out the park 1 April 2006
The brothers Mario have been reunited again following the fantastic `Superstar Saga' and this time they're joined by their own baby versions. They may be tiny and they may occasionally cry fountains of tears but that doesn't stop them from being formable fighters who can hold their own with their adult counterparts. The hook in `Partners in Time' is the time traveling between the past and present versions of the Toadstool kingdom. The Kingdom of the past has been attacked by aliens, the adult princess has been kidnapped (shock) and the Cobalt Star (the McGuffin of the story) has been broken into various pieces that need to be retrieved.
`Partners in Time' carries on that tradition of legitimately funny scripting set by `Superstar Saga' and most of the play mechanics remain the same. Much like the RPG console versions the handheld games are all about timing. Fights are turn based affairs requiring the player to time out strikes and defends. Players with difficulty getting the rhythm down may find themselves having some difficulties. Each creature type has a slightly different pattern and sometimes multiple attack sequences. It can take some fast reflexes but like most Nintendo games `Partners in Time' is designed to be beaten even by players with modest skills. One of the issues I have is the fact that it can be very difficult to manage all four brothers during combat even after hours of practice. It's actually even harder when the adult and baby version are separated because the adults uses X and Y while the babies use B and A. I found it challenging to get used one set of buttons and suddenly switch to the other especially when you need to switch between adults and babies quickly.
The Mario RPG's have always taken an aesthetic minimalist approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the future? No! 18 Feb 2006
This game is great, it is a lot like Superstar Saga that came before it, but is a lot more funny,the backgrounds are nicer, and if you think it is rubbish, you couldnt be wronger. It is one of the best games on the DS, and has hours of puzzling fun, loads of enormous bosses, and is very, very long. you can take control of 4 unique characters, including those legendary plumbers, Mario and Luigi!
