By David Swan VINE VOICE on December 5, 2005
The brothers Mario have been reunited again following the fantastic `Superstar Saga' and this time they're joined by their own baby versions. They may be tiny and they may occasionally cry fountains of tears but that doesn't stop them from being formable fighters who can hold their own with their adult counterparts. The hook in `Partners in Time' is the time traveling between the past and present versions of the Toadstool kingdom. The Kingdom of the past has been attacked by aliens, the adult princess has been kidnapped (shock) and the Cobalt Star (the McGuffin of the story) has been broken into various pieces that need to be retrieved.

`Partners in Time' carries on that tradition of legitimately funny scripting set by `Superstar Saga' and most of the play mechanics remain the same. Much like the RPG console versions the handheld games are all about timing. Fights are turn based affairs requiring the player to time out strikes and defends. Players with difficulty getting the rhythm down may find themselves having some difficulties. Each creature type has a slightly different pattern and sometimes multiple attack sequences. It can take some fast reflexes but like most Nintendo games `Partners in Time' is designed to be beaten even by players with modest skills. One of the issues I have is the fact that it can be very difficult to manage all four brothers during combat even after hours of practice. It's actually even harder when the adult and baby version are separated because the adults uses X and Y while the babies use B and A. I found it challenging to get used one set of buttons and suddenly switch to the other especially when you need to switch between adults and babies quickly.

The Mario RPG's have always taken an aesthetic minimalist approach.

I was a bit nervous to get this game because I am not really a big gamer and there are not two but four characters to control but I was pleasantly suprised but how informative the game was on how to control the players' different attacks.

The game also has a lot of funny parts that will definitely make you laugh and there is never a repetitive and dull moment.

The only drawback is that once you are done with the game, you can't go back and redo any of the levels.

The smash success of Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga on the GBA is now followed by another smash on the DS. The game utilizes the touch screen greatly, and gives new innovation to an already golden formula, making it platinum.

You will once again take control of Mario and Luigi and save the Mushroom Kingdom and Princess Peach from danger. The thrat this time is a race known as the Shroob. Their home planet is no longer bursting with life, and so they decided to leave and check out your home. They're all lead by Princess Shroob, and they think the Mushroom Kingdom is the perfect place to conquer.

The events that take place in the game will take place in the present, as well as the past. Using not only Mario and Luigi, but baby Mario and baby Luigi. The game is full of as much love and heart as the previous title, being funny and having some of the most engaging gameplay ever presented in an RPG.

As with the GBA version, Superstar Saga, you'll control Mario and Luigi. The A button controls Mario and the B button controls Luigi. Just the same, the X and Y buttons control baby Mario and baby Luigi. And using all four characters isn't all that bad at all. The younger versions of our heros can be given piggyback rides to speed things up a little. You may find yourself having to use the children more often than not. They can fit into places their adult counterparts can't, and they can also be flailed to places the older brothers can't reach. You'll most likely control both sets independently, and that's fine as well.

Both sets work in different ways, however. Mario and Luigi use toned down versions of special abilities found in Superstar Saga.

A Kid's Review on November 25, 2006
Mario and Lugi Superstar Saga was a legendary GBA game, even though the graphics were a little grainy, me and my friend play that game almost daily at lunch time, being excited about the 2005 release, I bought it right away without thinking. Mario and Luigi Partners in Time is NOT, i repeat NOT a remake of the GBA game Mario and Luigi Super Star Saga, created in 2003. Which is a good thing, mainly.

The game has the second-most creative plots in a Mario game (The first goes to Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door), where Peach goes in a time machine back to the past, and this alien race called the Shroobs conquer the past Mushroom Kingdom. Mario and Luigi have to go save the past Kingdom from all the evil, but this time they have some... uh friends...

Their (ahem) "friends" are actually their own younger selves from the past when they were still babies (Toddlers, at least, since they can walk and jump). You will learn some moves for each team, they younger bros. will get hammers, which will work equal to the hammers in Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga.

A familar ability is in this game as well, stomping baddies before battles will give them extra damage, but if you jump on one with flames, spikes, etc. you'll actually take damage. If you've never played the GBA original, you can counter and dodge moves when foes attack, making this an actually exciting RPG, and not a boring one where it's 100% turn based.

The Bros. Points have been removed, MALSS (Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga) you had to use Bros. Points to operate special moves, which were quite tedious, since you had to get an extra power up called Syrup to recover them. MALPIT (Mario and Luigi Partners in Time) gives you Bros.
