Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

As games get ever more realistic and violent it's nice to come across one like Mario & Luigi that values gameplay, originality and gentle humour above other more gratuitous gimmicks. A quasi-sequel to the N64's superb Paper Mario (itself a sequel to the never-released-in-this-country Super Mario RPG on the SNES), Mario & Luigi is essentially an action role-playing game, although it has enough action sequences and mini-games to evade easy pigeonholing.

The game's preposterous storyline involves Prince Peach's voice being stolen (and replaced with exploding speech bubbles) and both Mario and Luigi going off in pursuit of those responsible. One of the main conceits of the game is that you control both brothers at the same time, with the actions of one controlled via the A button and the other by the B button. This results in a lot of jumping on each other's heads and some genuinely inventive cooperative puzzles.

Combat in the game is turn-based and again you control both brothers at the same time, with special "Bros. Attacks" taking the place of magic. This aspect of the game is particularly close to Paper Mario, with both attack and defence being aided by a press of the character's button at the appropriate time. In these cynical times it's something of a relief to see games like Mario & Luigi still being released: it manages to amuse and entertain without upsetting anyone and is one of the very best games to be released in 2003. --David Jenkins

Manufacturer's Description

An epic unfolds in a strange new land as Mario and Luigi team up for the first time in Superstar Saga, a hilarious, action-filled role-playing game. An evil witch has stolen Princess Peach's voice, replacing her fair speech with explosives; as chaos breaks out in the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario and Luigi head for the castle and meet up with Bowser, who just arrived to kidnap the princess. When they find out what happened, these sworn enemies join forces and follow the witch to a neighbouring kingdom. After an aerial ambush crashes their ship and sends Bowser to who-knows-where, Mario and Luigi embark on foot, learning new moves and combining their brotherly might to fight off enemies, as they venture toward the kingdom's castle.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest RPG known to man? 30 Dec 2003
Quite possibly. Unless you count the Zelda series. You may think I'm over-rating this little gem, but you're wrong beyond belief.
The majority of RPGs I've touched in my games playing life have bored the hell out of me, except the Final Fantasy series (which are all incredibly dull to replay) and the two Mario RPGs: Mario RPG and Paper Mario. When I heard about Mario & Luigi, I wasn't too extatic, I was more looking forward to replaying the re-release of Super Mario Bros. 3 for GBA, however, this little beauty of a game turned up on Christmas day and got me hooked instantly.
Graphically this game is amazing, yes, you might argue that bitmaps are unexciting, but on such a small console they impressed the hell out of me, simplistic, but not childish. Soundwise the use of real speech samples is superb (getting Luigi poisened makes an amusing sound), and the use of reworked old Mario game themes is brilliant.
The gameplay, however, is "where it's at," I have never been so engrossed in an RPG as this, rather than the boring static battle systems of your generic rpg, coming somewhere between platform and your generic RPG you get full interactivity with a semi-turn-based system. During battles attacks and defence revolve around use of timing, so you can, if you have the skill, avoid every single attack in this game. The battle system is wonderfully accessible, simple to learn with great depth for an experienced gamer. Wandering around performing quests and finding items isn't irritating, walking into random battles isn't irritating, it seems to lack everything that puts me off most RPGs. Despite this, you do get a "short" experience (speaking relatively) for an RPG, but then again 15 hours of gameplay for any game nowadays is bloody impressive... also, my final point, unlike other RPGs it's fun to replay.
Nintendo love gamers again. I love this game, so should you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mustachio surprise! 25 Aug 2004
By A Customer
I got the game as a birthday present from my girlfriend and wasn't too keen on seeing it was an RPG, they tend to bore me stupid within a few hours and then sit on the shelf for years. But this game was a refreshing change, fantastic graphics, great storyline (Not too serious which makes a change for RPGs), loads of humour, a great control system and variety throughout the game. It was hard to put down.......
Nintendo have incorporated classic platformer skill based moves within the RPG format making this game original and fresh to play.
The start is quite slow and can get a little boring while the game is teaching you the moves, but once you're through the first couple of levels its an absolute treat to play! I've hardly slept the last week as I've picked it up before bed just to play for "1/2 hour" before going to sleep and then wasted 3 hours playing it without noticing the time. Nintendo have hit the nail on the head yet again with a fantastic Mario title.
If you like Mario - buy it!
If you like RPGs - buy it!
If you like to play quality games on your GBA - BUY IT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Please let there be a sequel! 1 Mar 2004
I bought this game for the sole purpose of having something to play whilst I was flying to my Holiday destination back in December, however I spent a good 50% of my actual Holiday playing it!! Its possibly the most addictive RPG I have ever played!. I’ve never been a big fan of the RPG genre, apart from FF7 I’ve never been hooked, the Zelda series was very dull to me, and I played FF10 for a couple of week before it bored me. But this little game is by far the best RPG I have ever played, its got humor , good graphics, drama, and exploration aplenty!! It just falls short of the 5 star mark though mainly because ITS JUST TOO SHORT! Mind you that’s probably because I was so addicted to it I couldn’t put my GBA down for 10 minutes! Seriously I pray to Nintendo every night for a sequel to this fantastic Beauty of a game! Think of every Mario game, thrown into a blender then poured into one little cartridge, and you get Superstar Saga, if you are a Mario fan and/or an RPG fan, I strongly recommend you own this game!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Mario game on the Game Boy Advance! 1 Dec 2003
This is truly a turning point for Mario and RPG games (and gamers) everywhere! This game (as the title gives away) stars the infamous Mario and his ,also famous, brother Luigi as they fight across many land to find the criminal who stole Princess Peach's voice and replaced it (strangely) with explosives.
As the two brothers cross these lands, they meet new and old characters, many who have starred in previous Mario (or Luigi) games e.g.Goombas, Hammer Bros., etc. Like its two predeccessors ,Super Mario RPG (not released in Europe sadly) and Paper Mario, battles occur once you meet with an enemy in the field. However, there are slight differences in the battle system which sets this game apart from the rest, aside from the added vocal sounds from Mario and Luigi, battles become more active. Once you issue an attack you can increase the damage given by this attack by pressing the button at the correct time (as in its predecessors). This also works when Mario and Luigi team up for Bros. attacks. But what really sets it apart is during an enemies attack Mario and Luigi can dodge or counter attack it depending on the speed and timing of your reaction. For example, just before an enemy comes into contact with you, press A to jump and, depending on the speed and timing of your jump, you will counter attack.
If you are a fan of Mario or/and Luigi or Final Fantasy, then this is a game for you.
