[+] Finally got Dark Moon. I can say with complete confidence that Luigi's Mansion is my absolute favorite Game, I've always loved Halloween and Everytime a Game has a Halloween themed stage it's almost garunteed to be my favorite and as one big treck through a haunted cartoon mansion wih a Mario Bros take on Ghostbusters, I can't help but keep returning to it and playing again.

    Which is why it took so long for me to bring myself to play Dark Moon as the very first trailers showed the adventure being spread across multiple mansions instead of focusing on one with a big story set within it like the first title.

    But now that I've started playing it, I am enjoying it though I was right about a couple things. First of all the game is laid out in missions which I don't like, they've basically taken Luigi's Mansion and tried cramming the 3D Marion formula into it.

    Stunning ghosts has also been given an extra unnecessary step, in the game you get a strobe bulb which you use to activate certain things around the mansion which is cool I like tht but now you have to strobeflash ghosts instead of simply shining on them.

    My biggest issue is the controls, everything feels sluggish and Luigi is given a slow walk and an awkward run instead of your speed being controlled by the stick like before.

    And they removedthe twin stick control scheme, which I can understand for the original 3ds but the c stick does NOTHING on the new3DS.

    Overall though, I like it, the Art is colorful and stylized, E.Gadd's humorous dialogue is still there and the levels that I've seen, while I still would rather have one big mansion instead of the game being spread thinly across multiple, are designed pretty alright.

    Put simply, I'm having fun with it...but it's not the original.

    • I loved the original game on the GC. Haven't finished this one yet, but I like it so far. Would love to see a 3 on console.

    • I'm still hopeful that we'll see a 3 but I'd like it to tone it back to one big mansion

Quite enjoyable but felt too sluggish, disjointed and short to be considered great. Certainly a unique title well worth owning but down expect anything jaw droppingly good. Actually the first time I played it I ended up putting it aside for something else. Second time I found myself hooked and unable to put it down

    Second lass boss was a real as the controls were so finicky it made something simple hard. Hate when that happens.. of course it could just be me sucking at the game too!

    Don't think I'll bother going back to find all the gems, boos and getting 3 stars on the levels to get the secret ones.

    • I loved it, it's just a pain in the arse to find decent players online to finish all 25 floors in the Thrill Tower!
