However, his dream quickly becomes a nightmare when King Boo reveals everything had been a ploy to capture Mario and friends. With the assistance of Professor E. Gadd once again, the reluctant and cowardly hero Luigi traverses up and down treacherous floors of the now-ominous hotel on a quest to save them. Wield the upgraded Poltergust G-00 to slam and blow away the ghosts’ defenses, or summon Gooigi, an all-green doppelganger that can help Luigi overcome obstacles he can’t get past alone. Interchange between Luigi and Gooigi as one player, or grab a friend and control one each. For more frenetic multiplayer action, race the timer to clear various objectives on a series of floors in ScareScraper mode.

    It’s clear that a lot of care, polish, and attention went into making it. It looks fantastic, it plays even better, and it’s simply a joy to play from beginning to end.

    This is a huge step up for a franchise that has always been enjoyable but never felt special. Well, Luigi's Mansion 3 is special.

    Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the best in the series, gooey hands down. Its fully co-op compatible story mode constantly delights and innovates, taking full advantage of Luigi and Gooigi’s vacuuming antics, both old and new. Although the dedicated multiplayer modes ultimately aren’t going to sustain repeat visits, they are a sideshow to the story’s main haunt.

    Luigi’s Mansion 3 is marred only by its ease-of-play and its controls (or lack of variant control options), but is still more-than-playable. It is easily the most progressively designed game Nintendo has made from a tech perspective, while its visual design, comedic writing and overall charm scream “classic Nintendo”. Multiplayer and co-op add value, but the true goo here is in the game’s ever-enjoyable single-player campaign that will keep you checking, checking and checking again under that bed, for that hidden ghost, or that hidden treasure.

    Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a nice spooky treat for your Switch. Anyone who loved the original will love this one too, and the game is easily welcoming enough to rope some newcomers into the franchise as well. How could anyone find issue with a game whose menu screen is a Virtual Boy? Ah, Nintendo. You know how to laugh at yourself.

    Luigi's Mansion 3 delivers up to its expectations, and builds on the first two entries in the series. It has the right level of challenge, varied locales, brilliant animation and comedy. The downfalls are that the base game is relatively short and the free multiplayer can get boring after a while. Nonetheless this looks superb right down to the charming characterisation of Luigi's face, or the stunning environments, and it is well worth a buy.

    Luigi’s Mansion’s 3 is my kind of haunted house — a place that’s more funny than scary. For anyone who likes Nintendo games of the Mushroom Kingdom variety there are many reasons to book a stay.

I really, really don'tI'm very addicted and it is already (three days after publication) on my top ten of the most played games by duration! I really, really don't understand how people can rate this game with 0. This is one of the best games on Switch so far. The level design is full of charm, phantasy and humor. It is always fair. It belongs definitively to the list of the best games and it's a must buy for fans of the Nintendo franchise. What also is special is the team player mode. For once you don't play against the other players. You have to build a team, help each other. And that is so much fun if you finally defeat as a team the end boss. That is awesome! Expand

    Magnifico. Un juego muy cuidado por parte de Nintendo. El tapado para muchos, que se convirtió en una realidad y para otros, una grandisimaMagnifico. Un juego muy cuidado por parte de Nintendo. El tapado para muchos, que se convirtió en una realidad y para otros, una grandisima sorpresa. Mucho mimo y mucho trabajo, el juego de luces, las sombras, el detallado del propio Luigi y su gesticulación facial junto a un gran control y un gran diseño de niveles lo hacen merecedor del podium para el goty 2019. Si tienes una nintendo switch, es obligación probarlo. Expand
