finished luigi’s mansion yesterday. this was another one of those games i’d started ages ago, got past the first area, and then decided to pick up later. the most common complaint about this game is that it’s too short, but i found it to actually be a good length. there’s only so much they could have put into the game in terms of mechanics with the vacuum cleaner, and if it were any longer it woud’ve just been the same kind of thing. as it is i didn’t bother trying to track down the last 2 ghosts, and wound up getting only a medium ending (apparently 4th out of 8 possible endings). the controls were a bit awkward for me at first which will prob. be a bit difficult for a really young player, but overall it wasn’t very difficult. worth playing? i’d say so, esp. for fans of mario and company. it’s a game that def. has its charms if not a whole lot of staying power or replayability. it would be fascinating to see what nintendo would add if they did a sequel, but that seems highly unlikely. the most we can hope for is another game that stars luigi on his own.
