Mario and Luigi

Does anybody know anything about this game? I planned on picking it up tomorrow at Best Buy for $19.99 after coupon, but there's not a single review to be found anywhere.

Seeing as I LOVED Paper Mario, I'm picking this up sight unseen.

Me too. I combined it with my ebgames.com preorder for MK: DD, with no tax and free overnight shipping.

I'll be renting it and playing the heck out of it for a week. Looking forward to this After purchasing Fire Emblem sight unseen and hating it (I left it unfinished), it pains me to not be able to pick this up sight unseen as I'm sure it's great.

The story was blah but the gameplay rocked! I'm actually kinda caught off-guard - i didn't realize how soon this game was coming out!

I called BB today and they said they would have it in stock Thursday...can't wait!

After the monumental disaster that was Paper Mario, I have no faith in Nintendo any longer.

LOL!

Seriously, that's cool. I know people that HATED Paper Mario, even though they liked Super Mario RPG.

Sorry man, I couldn't help but throw that in

Actually I enjoyed Super Mario RPG I just didn't care for Paper Mario. Maybe Mario & Luigi will be better? Who knows but at least I'm going to give it a chance even if Paper Mario was a 'monumental disaster'.

So the lesson here is read a review before you buy a game?

Oh man I remember I almost passed on Paper Mario. But then I read the five star review it received from Next-Generation magazine, I had to check it out. Paper Mario is not only a great Mario game, but it's also one of the best RPG's I've ever played.

High praise came from another late great gaming site, The GIA, when many of The GIA editors awarded Paper Mario as best game of 2001, ahead of other great 2001 games such as FFX, MGS2 and ICO!

Bring on Mario and Luigi!

IGN review

Score 9.0


Closing Comments
Paper Mario was a great adventure on the Nintendo 64, and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is an excellent adventure on the Game Boy Advance. The GBA game's an entirely original adventure that shares elements from the past RPG, and definitely does a lot to satisfy that itch many gamers have of wanting an original Mario platformer on the handheld. We're happy to get something Mario related that's not only incredibly fun to play, it's entirely the GBA's own property and opens the door for more in a potential series

The easy to get Best Buy Gamer's Gift Card coupon, good for $5 off any game or accessory at BB or CC. See the FAQ for more

Well, of course I travelled the 30+ miles to Best Buy and they didn't have it in stock yet. In fact, the manager of that department didn't have a clue which game I was talking about: "You mean Mario Advance 4? We've got all kinds of copies of that."

Luckily there was a CC right there as well and they had a copy, though it had to be retrieved from the warehouse. They also agreed to accept the BB $5 coupon.

Gamespot review

Score 9.2

Last paragraph
In the end, Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga is an impressive new entry in the Mario franchise that is not to be missed. Strong visuals, a goofy story, rich gameplay, and a lengthy quest all combine to make one of the best experiences on the Game Boy Advance this year. It's also one that has some merits when played on the GameCube as well, thanks to the game's support of rumble when used with the Game Boy Player. The only beef to be had is with the lack of any kind of multiplayer support, but that's a minor point. As the first entry in what may well be a Game Boy Advance series, Mario and Luigi delivers in every way.

But wait, what is it about?

Saving a princess?

Or becoming an international pop star?

I went to pick up FFX-2 today and I had to decide between a $29.99 limited edition strategy guide or picking up Mario & Luigi for $29.99. It was a tough decision but I ended up going with the game.

I'm about 12 hours into this game so far. I got this and Mario Kart, and Mario and Luigi has been getting a lot more play time, probably because I play video games more than most people I know.

My only complaint so far is that the game's story is too linear. I want some sidequests or something like that. It's almost too easy, even thought it's really fun to play.
