Review: Luigi’s Mansion (GCN)

Everyone loves a good scare! That’s exactly what you get in Luigi’s Mansion. You play as Luigi, who has recently won a mansion in a contest that he never entered. For some reason, he still accepts this reward and arranges to meet with his red-hatted brother at this mystery mansion, only to find that it it’s haunted!

Luigi’s Mansion is a skill game in which you must catch ghosts using the Poltergust 3000, an overpoweredvacuum, and a flashlight. You fight through the legions of ghosts to find the “Boss Ghosts”, hoping that they will lead you to your brother in this “Mario is Missing” adventure. There are times when the game becomes quite tiresome, like when you must re-search rooms to find more elusive ghosts. However, most of the time, the game is very fast-moving and action-packed!


The main character is, of course, Luigi. He is our friend with a green hat, and a tender, easily frightened heart. This makes him perfect for a scary game like this.

Professor E. Gadd is a scientist who studies ghosts, and also the inventor of the Poltergust 3000. The flashlight, however, was created by Conrad Hubert.

Mario went to the mansion before Luigi, and, having no way to defend himself, was captured by ghosts. He is only in the game as a prisoner in a painting, as most of the ghosts were before the game begins, according to legend.

Peach isn’t actually in this game, but her presence is very much felt in her “Toads”, who act as one of the only ways you can save in the game.

King Boo is the main enemy in the game, and is Mario’s captor. He is powered by the “Boos” that are hiding throughout the mansion, 50 in all. You must capture all of them before facing this “King of Ghosts”.


This game is an amazing option for anyone who enjoys a fun game that can be played through in a day or two, or if your looking for a scare, turn up the volume and turn down the lights. You’ll feel the adrenaline pumping. The game is definitely worth the money you will spend on it! But don’t take my word for it, check it out yourself!
