| Platform: GameCube |
According to the plot, our hero through the machinations of some obtained the rights to a huge mansion, whose value was, however, marred by location - primeval forest. Unfortunately, the building has turned out to be banal and the haunted house. Well, to top it all disappeared Mario himself, who, according to Mr. Miyamoto, waiting for you somewhere in the game.
Those who expect to see 3D-platformer a la Mario 64 or Sonis Adventure, will be severely disappointed. What should be written in the column "genre"? It's not Action / Platform, not Arcade and not quite Action / Adventure. There is only one option - simply Action, and not because of dullness and unprincipled game gameplay (as in most cases), but rather because of the originality of LM, which follows from the successful application of the "new - it's good redesign. At one time, Konami thought of the ideas of Metal Gear and created a masterpiece in the form of MGS. Nintendo likewise examined the library of old games, and borrowed a lot of products for the N64 and pulled out Luigi.
Lantern operates on all the local creatures, but some ghosts thick-skinned enough to withstand long its light. I'm not talking about bosses. However, Luigi is not hard a target. Throughout the game for his wonder-cleaner learned to hurl water, fire and ice ... of course, pre-sucked ammunition. As soon as the specter of lost orientation ... in the trash (or whatever is inside) it! Hoover also has another purpose - find the secrets, of which a great variety of game (that's the third component of gameplay). Of course, most found not so necessary for passage, but a variety of treasures will add points and improve your overall ranking. Particularly ambitious gamers recommend pay attention to it.
As a something stupid to say, whether or not to buy the game when there is little alternative. I can only express his dissenting opinion (confirmed by sales) that LM - not exactly the right product for the launch of the new platform. Being the second after the next incarnation of Mario, he would have easily went platinum, but for him to buy GameCube are not everything. Solo career - a risky thing, however.
