To start off are the graphics. The graphics presented to us are very well done. Rich colorful environments decorate this game in a way we've never thought possible on the GBA. Mario, Luigi and other characters are visually stunning. The animations in battle are simple, yet fun to look at. You'll no doubt be impressed by the graphics the first time around.
The music and other sound in this game is also quite good. Music from nearly all the Mario games is mixed into the bunch as well as introducing new tunes. The new tunes are quite remarkable, especially for the GBA. While some tunes get a little repetitive and loop around much too quickly, you'll quickly get used to it, as it is a minor flaw.
The story is that a witch named Cackletta from the neighboring Kingdom of Beanbean has stolen Princess Toadstool's beautiful voice and has replaced it with explosives. Each time Toadstool speaks you'll see a lot of symbols pop up in her dialogue box and then come down to the ground with an explosion. When Bowser comes to kidnap the Princess he soon realizes that she would probably ruin his castle. In short, Bowser decides to help Mario and Luigi.
What was even more remarkable are the voices in the game. Mario and Luigi don't scream, grunt, groan and moan for every action they do, but they're voices are still pretty well done. Bowser's voice is also impressive.Read more ›
Basic plot: too full of twists and turns to explain here. But basically, it's another "Mario & Lugi go on a quest" game. However, it's different from any other Mario game I've ever played (although I'll admit I have never played Paper Mario).
What's particular about this game is that, first of all, you play as Mario AND Luigi at the same time, with the A and B buttons each controlling one of the brothers. Second of all, whenever you run into an enemy, instead of killing it with a jump or battling it in the usual manner, you automatically switch into Battle Mode. In this mode, you each get a turn at attacking the enemy, then the enemy gets a turn at you, and you need to dodge the attack. This initially surprised me, and irritated me: I'll admit I found it somewhat boring at first. However, I can assure you it grows on you. At first, all you can do is jump on the enemies, but as you make progress, you learn new very cool techniques, including Bros. Attacks, in which both brothers combine their forces to inflict severe damage on the enemy. The variety of attacks you eventually learn makes the whole thing very entertaining.
Speaking of entertaining, this game also has a lot of humour. The creators, by inventing the new techniques, enable you to put your characters into rather unusual situations. There are puzzles to solve, which I found to be quite fun (although some people may not like those). And, at times, you find yourself in delightfully funny circumstances. There are quite a few dialogues and scenes, many of which are ironic and very entertaining.
Finally, this is an elaborate game that will keep you busy for a while.Read more ›
Though the game has many, many excellent qualities, perhaps the best is the revolutionary control. Like some other RPGs, you can jump, swim, and dash through towns and wilderness, using Mario and Luigi's trademark moves, as well as recent additions to their super repertoires. The thing that sets Mario & Luigi apart, however, is the manner in which one button controls one brother, while the other button controls... well, the other brother. For example, in the locale screens, you can make Mario jump (or swing a hammer, or anything) with A, while making Luigi do something totally different with B. This dual control is the key to the game, and you'll have to apply it to everything from combat to just getting around the Beanbean Kingdom.
Speaking of combat, it's turn-based, but the extra attacks from Mario RPG have made a triumphant return, accompanied by counterattacks, dodges, and Bros. Attacks that require timed sequences of button presses, which all serve to give the turn-based battles a very active and fun feeling. It's almost an action RPG.
If all this seems to complicated, don't worry; the game does an excellent job of making absolutely sure you know how to use your myriad attacks. Besides, it's really not that difficult. The dual controls give the game a unique feeling that can't really be compared to anything else.
Overall, the game is quite a hoot.Read more ›

Mario and Luigi and the Paper Mario series are all great RPGs. This game is a bit short, but fun, especially the bosses. Mario RPG and the first Paper Mario are my favorites.Published 2 months ago by Michael Cagle
