LUIGI'S MANSIONReviewed By: Ron Coley
VOLUNTEER GUEST REVIEWER
“Luigi's Mansion” is a decent adventure game with the only flaw being that it can become very repetitive. The game has has very bright and colorful graphics, with nice and tight controls as well as quality sound. It's not Dolby Digital 5.1, but with the familiar "Nintendo sound", it'll do.
The game's puzzles are not hard at all, with the exception of a few tricky ones. Many seven or eight year olds can handle it just fine. Morally, “Luidi's Mansion” is nice in that it's violence free. Ghosts are sucked up through a vacuum. While even the presence of ghosts for some is labelled occultic, those who play the game will find their presence totally harmless.Most of the ghosts look like Casper the friendly ghost, with the exception of some of the human ghosts that you have to catch. Parents should be ready to impart biblical truth on this issue if it comes up.
In the end, “Luigi's Mansion” is an enjoyable game that is over before you know it (for most veteran game players). It's an experience that you shouldn't go without, but don't drop the $50 on it because you'll be finished with it quickly. Younger gamers will obviously take more time with it, so maybe in that case it would be worth the purchase.
