Review by Enigma-Oni
"Poor, poor Luigi."
You got to feel sorry for the guy... This, if I remember correctly, was the first game Luigi actually stared in. And by that, I mean he was the... Well, technically Mario starred in this one as well. He's gone missing and you have to find him. The game revolves around him, as usual.
DO THE MARIO! Oh... Wait... He's missing.
Oh no! Mario has been kidnapped (or, rather, plumber napped or fat-short-Italian-napped)! Luigi and Yoshi chase after the green shelled fiend only to come face to face with a tall foreboding castle. You dash in through the front gates to save your dear, beloved brother and enter a hall lined with doors. Where do they go? You enter one and see two pipes awaiting you. You hop in through one of them, not knowing what to expect.
You find yourself in a city. "Where am I?" you ask a passerby. As it turns out, you're on Earth, in one of the main cities in that region.
What? The Koopas have invaded the cities and stolen famous landmarks? The fiends! You must return the items to their proper place! You kill troopas by squashing them under your feet (or Yoshi's, if you're riding him). This game was most likely intended for little kids in elementary school, but still... BUT WHAT'S THIS?! The information monkeys deny the return of the items without answering a question based on the history of that item, or things related to it. I hope you've been paying attention to the people in the streets, because they will tell you everything you need to know (and more).
Can't Stop, Can't Stop the Beat!
Now, this is my personal taste, but I despised the music. I mean, yes it is from a NES, but Tetris had better music. Graphics wise, it's just another Mario game, albeit with different backgrounds. The cities look as interesting as that block of ice topped with hair I saw outside a college one summer. Thankfully, it doesn't take to long to beat.
Smash your TV and have adventure!
Unless if you want to be bored to death, or are already bored and want something to do, play something else, read a book, do stuff on the net, or watch TV. IT IS NOT WORTH IT! And if you have it, give it to your six year old cousin. I think he'll enjoy it, for about two minutes.
