Product Description

Product Description

Join Luigi as he searches for Mario in this blockbuster game for the Nintendo Gamecube. Review

When Luigi's Mansion was first announced many assumed it would be a title to follow in the legendary footsteps of Super Mario World and Super Mario 64. It's nowhere near as epic as either of these titles, though, and also unlike them will never be accused of being the "best game ever". Once you get over the shock of the game being on such a small scale, though, its various charms do become obvious. The game involves you, as Mario's brother Luigi, trying to exorcise a haunted mansion of ghosts by sucking them into a vacuum cleaner. If only Bill Murray and the Catholic Church had realised it was so easy. Except it's not really that easy at all: the complications and cleverness of the game come in with the use of light and shadow. Many ghosts cannot be seen unless you reveal their shadow or manipulate the objects in a room to make them appear. These imaginative--but never frustrating--puzzles add to the otherwise simplistic process of catching the smaller ghosts by freezing them with a beam of light and sucking them up the Hoover. It's only a minor classic but Luigi's Mansion does a good job of showing off some off the Gamecube's graphical effects and providing a game which all the family can enjoy. If only it was a bit longer... but then, knowing Nintendo, if it was longer it wouldn't have come out until the space year 3050.--David Jenkins

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, but incredibly sweet 13 Aug. 2002
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Nintendo have done the unthinkable - launched their new console with something other than Mario. Initial impressions may be that having Luigi kick start the Gamecube is a poor gimmick to avoid being overly formulaic, but thankfully there are differences here other than green clothes and a thinner physique. Luigi's Mansion invites you down an alternative road to Mario's platforming adventures, and offers a more puzzle based quest.
Equipped only with a hoover and a flashlight, and little in the way of bravery, Luigi ventures into his newly won mansion to rescue his portly brother from the escaped ghosts who inhabit the place. In the simplest terms, you're asked to hoover them up so that the local lunatic professor can return them to the paintings they came from. Along the way, you're advised to hoover up hearts to stay alive and money to... well. That would be telling.
This game demostrates the Gamecube pad's brilliance instantly. The control is tight and refined, and very easy to grasp after a few tries, meaning you'll be hoovering ghosts up with ease in no time. You'll also find your hoover being used in different ways will unearth bonuses and solve the wealth of puzzles in the rooms.
The structure is simple - you can access a room to begin with; defeat the ghost(s) in the room and you'll often find a key, which will let you advance to another room. Repeat. Sound boring? It's anything but. Many of the puzzles are brilliantly ingenius, making solving them immensely satisfying. Sometimes randomly vacuuming various things will obtain results, but more often than not serious thinking will go a long way. It's hard to explain, but each room is so littered with surprises that a huge grin will weld itself to your face. Trust me, it's a golden experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luigi's Mansion 11 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
The world's first Hoover 'em up? This game has brilliant 3D graphics. Luigi wins a mansion in a competition he didn't enter. It is unfortunately full of Ghosts which love the dark. You have to save Mario who has been captured by King Boo and trapped in a portrait.You are armed with only a flashlight, the Poltergust 3000 and a gameboy horror, Professor Elvin Gadd's invention, you must suck up all the ghosts you can. There are 3 medals to collect which enable you to shoot fire, water or ice from your vacuum. It is a superb game overall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Luigi cleans up 7 May 2002
Format:Video Game
For all die hard Nintendo fans, this is a must buy. In this release game, it's not the usual Mario brother bashing the badies. This time it falls to Luigi.
Luigi's won a mansion in a competition he didn't enter, something dodgy going on there!! When he gets there he finds the place riddled with ghosts, and no sight of Mario. After a quick look around, and some other worldly experiences, you meet Professor E. Gadd, inventor of the Poltergust 3000, your weapon to fend off the ghouls. This game gives you good insight of the capabilities of the new style controler, you need nearly all the buttons to play this game. After a brief introduction to ghost catching, it's off the mansion for some serious hunting.
Walking in and out of dark rooms, you can hear Luigi nervously whistling or humming the theme tune. The graphics are lovely. When Luigi shines his torch about you can see dust floating in the air. The flickering candles and the dripping taps all add to the atmosphere.
Catching the ghosts is quite easy, once you get used to the controls, and herein lies one of the main faults of the game. Once you've caught one of the big ghosts, other than trying to find new ways to surprise them, you've caught them all. The most challenging ghosts to catch are actually the Boo's, once you've released them that is. To catch a Boo you have to direct Luigi with the control stick and the 'c' stick.
The game is also surprisingly short. It's possible to finish the game in a couple of days of serious playing.
The idea behind the game is fresh though, and you'll be laughing after 5 minutes play. If this is any indication of things to come from the big N, we should be getting excited.

4.0 out of 5 stars Centre Stage For Luigi. 5 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Luigi's Mansion, lets face it looks amazing. The whole mansion is wonderfully created by Nintendo's Secret Magicians. The 'cartoony' style works perfectly, and the character animation is simply astonishing. But its the attention to detail that really makes Luigi, the lighting effects are just mind blowing; the transluscent ghosts, Luigi's trusty torch. Class.
The sound is equally fitting, after only a couple of hours I'm whistling along with Luigi as he explores the dim, creepy mansion. The music itself is typical Nintendo, enchanting and contageous, but with a darker slant.
But, playability is arguably the most important aspect of any video game. And Luigi has it by the Hoover Bag Loads (sorry). Luigi is an absolute dream to play, who would have though vacuuming up gosts could be so much fun - and thats what games should be about Fun. This is easily one of the most playable games in recent years. Its style harkens back to the 1990's 2D platformer, but that aint a bad thing.
There is one little bit of bad news... Longevity. Luigi is short, some say it'll last you about 4 hours, but I (an experienced gamer) would say closer to 6 or 8 hours. And I'd bet you'd go back for some more, anyway (its just so damned FUN). But, if your looking for a good, fun wholesome game, oozing playability and style, Luigi is your man.
