    I'd heard great things about Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, but had never played Luigi's Mansion on the GameCube. That was no problem as they just put you right into the action of finding the missing pieces of the Dark Moon to bring peace back to the ghosts. First off, this game is kind of an atmospheric adventure game with some action elements and a truckload of charm. This is the game that's making me really love Luigi. He's so well animated and you can tell he's scared, but when he does well, his exclamation of "I did it!" makes me so happy. This is a great little game to just go through but also there's loads to collect and there's online modes as well. I highly recommend this game and at the Selects price it's a great value.

    Different, but great sequel

    Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon features a mission structure, allowing you to replay parts of the game whenever you like to search for collectibles and earn a higher score. For fans of the first game, the puzzle-solving, the ghostbusting combat and the beautiful, detailed environments return just as good as ever - all with some of the most impressive graphics on the system. Some may miss the unique portrait ghosts or the focus on just one mansion, but those with an open mind will find a lot to enjoy.

    Not as scary as the original, but definitely fun

    The ghosts are back and Luigi's in for a bad night. In this sequel to the critically-acclaimed Luigi's Mansion for the Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo has dialed back the childhood-nightmare-production factor and instead delivers more on cartoonish "silly" scariness with smooth gameplay that makes the very most of the innovative Nintendo 3DS handheld. This time there's 5 mansions, although some of them really aren't mansions. All 5 of them are greviously haunted, and it's up to poor scared Luigi to suck them ghosts all up with the world's most advanced portable vacuum cleaner. Overall, very enjoyable.

    What can I say about this game... It's awesome!! I used to grow up playing the first Luigi's Haunted Mansion on Gamecube so when I saw this, I just had to have it. The missions are so much fun and as you progress, some of them may be a little tricky but that just adds to the fun! (Who wants to play a game that's too easy anyway?) Luigi is so cute when he gets worried and I love that this game is more interactive. There's so many different ghosts to capture and different places to explore. If you like Super Mario games (more so if you like Luigi) and you liked the first Luigi's Haunted Mansion, definitely get this game! It's literally for all ages and I could spend hours playing it!

    thought I had it all. You know? But it wasn't complete, wasn't nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn't share it with this 3DS game. I couldn't hear it's voice or laugh with it. I miss my -- I missed my game. We live in a cynical world, a cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you Luigi's Mansion. You complete me.

    A Sequel That Is Far Superior To The Original

    Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon on the 3DS is everything you'd want a sequel to the GameCube launch title to be. The 3DS hardware may be limited in its power, but Dark Moon still shines very bright on the 3DS's tiny, standard definition screen. Colors are bright, character models are full of personality, particle effects look absolutely great and the stereoscopic 3D amplifies all of this in a terrific way while adding impressive depth.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the original Luigi's Mansion. To be fair, I played it for the first time only last year, so I didn't play it back when it was new. Having said that, I really enjoy Dark Moon. Not everyone loves the mission structure, but I love it. I've always been a big fan of Nintendo handhelds, and this is a great game that fits right in on the 3DS. A must have game for your 3DS collection.

    Good Hide and Seek Game

    Overall, I have enjoyed the game. It is a good hide and seek game, where items and things you need are hidden and you have to find them. There are some things you have to do to reveal gems that are not at all obvious. But if you are having a particularly hard time, you can always google the solution. It will keep you busy for a while. Just be patient and keep trying different things.

    Takes advantage of the 3D

    This game take great advantage of the 3D, prob the best yet. Wel let she give Mario 3D 1st, then this. Fun game with a fair challenge. Sometimes you can feel a bit lost, but rewarding when you solve the puzzle. So the reason I give this game 3stars, is due to not being able to save your progress mid level, you have to beat the entire level for it to save, and some can take 20 or so mins. Other than that, really fun game. Don't pass it up.

    I have played this some, but haven't beaten it. I get stuck quite a bit and my nephew bails me out. It's been a while since I just really sat down and just played video games, I get to play here and there so I like to play fun games. The more I get into it the easier it seems to get! I start to figure out how the game works.

    I've been holding out on this game since it was never really cheaper than $30. Now that it's on Nintendo Selects I decided to pick it up -- especially since it was even cheaper with Gamers Club Unlocked. I haven't played the original Luigi's Mansion on the GC, but I'm having a great time with this game. The controls are good, the atmosphere is fun, and the puzzles are unique. Overall another solid title to add to my 3DS library.

    There are few games that define a genre and there are fewer that define a console. This game does both. By far the best ghost catching game I’ve played. This is a must play and with the added bonus of download play you can go ghost hunting with friends without the need of another copy of the game. Do yourself and you loved ones a favor and buy this game. It’s the reason you play.

    Really Fun Game

    It's a really fun game, but takes a little bit to understand how to play the game I would recommend it to people who aren't absolute beginners, but if you have minimal experience you will be good. The muliplayer part is super fun, but it can take new players a little while to understand the controls You also have to beat the first 5 levels before you can play multiplayer with other people

    This game still rocks even after being released so long ago! It has awesome graphics, awesome gameplay, and the sound is amazing! The controls can be difficult for younger players to learn at first, but it is easy after they get used to it. Use headphones when playing, the sound is rich and the sounds for each room are unique! Now that this game is under $20 there is no excuse not to buy!

    Kids love all things Mario and Luigi, so this purchase was a no brainer. We got it recently, so you couldn't beat the deeply discounted price. I actually haven't played it with the kids just yet which is a testament to the ease of the controls. They seem to enjoy as they're still playing almost a month after the purchase, and they do have a pretty wide selection of video games to pick from.

    If you've never played "Luigi's Mansion" for Gamecube--I haven't prior to purchasing the sequel for 3DS, just know this isn't a traditional Super Mario game. More like a kid-friendly "Ghostbusters" starring Luigi. It's a fun game for all ages--bumbling Luigi goes around creepy houses sucking up ghosts with a special vacuum, while collecting items--and the $19.99 price tag is a good deal.

    i never got the chance to play this at the launch of the 3ds"s release, but im glad it made it to the nintendo selects, it gave me a chance to try it, it is well worth the purchase, and i can see why the game sold so well. its a must own for any purveyor of handheld gaming. its challenging with its puzzles, and funny with its quirky humor. easily the best purchase ive made in some time.

    I love this game so much, it's very charming and addicting, and in my opinion, better than the original Gamecube game. I also love Ghostbusters... which really only received so-so video games... But when you play this game, the gameplay will never much remind you of Ghostbusters and have you thinking "This is the Ghostbusters game I always wanted"

    I love this game! It kept me very interested and never had a boring down adventure. Plus if have any kids and if you want them to take time out and read. Well this is the game for them in order for them to complete a mission they will have to read the quotes before he or she start playing.
