Luigi's Mansion

released on Sep 14, 2001

Luigi steps out from the shadow of his brother Mario and into the gloomy shadows of a very haunted house in this, his first-ever starring role. When Luigi learns that he's the proud new owner of a creepy old mansion, he's thrilled. Of course, his feelings immediately shift when his brother, the storied Mario, disappears from the house. Now, you'll have to help Luigi track his brother down, making your way through expansive 3D levels. Each stage is packed with ghosts and ghouls to put you on edge; and you'll be armed with a flashlight and a vacuum cleaner to help you capture your foes. Armed with a flashlight and a customized vacuum cleaner, Luigi must rid the mansion of Boos and ghouls -- and find his missing brother to boot!

Short, addicting, fun gameplay and surprisingly atmospheric.

Not brilliant but it has some fun moments and Nintendo charm.

I don't love this game like a lot of people do. It is slow and the way you suck up ghosts aren't very appealing to me. This game is memorable, has good boss fights, and has great Luigi charm. I'm sad the series changed its formula with the sequels.
