So many things to say...hmm, im gonna bullet it!
- Story is as witty and funny as you would expect from a M&L game
- playing as bowser in this game is a very entertaining exp.
- Can be played casually or hardcore.
- If you take the time to explore and do and find everything there is to do it buffs up the playtime from 18 hrs to about 28 hrs
- very polished with tight controls

CONS (super nitpicking)
- just a tad too much (txt) dialouge
- although the game is long "on paper" (20 + hrs) it "breezes by so fast, cause of that old saying about having fun
- WAY TOO EASY, people new to the series might find it difficult at first but vets such as myself might find it 2 easy
- screw the cons BUY / RENT THIS GAME

This game was great, the only Mario and Luigi game Ive play was the 1st one and that was for 5 minute.

Anyhow my younger sister wanted to rent this. well she play it, said it was too hard, and ask me to give it a shot. and I was shock on how good this game was. Anyhow I said it a must rent for any DS owner well let give the low down now

story:5/10 for a Mario game Ive never seen them pull off a story I didn't see coming but then I've play a Lotta RPG's

Sound:7/10 this is one factor that shock me there a good bit of music in the game my only grip was that there like 3 or 4 battle songs for the whole game

Game play:8/10 pretty good for an action RPG reason I don't give it an 10 is dude to fact some items/skill were more useful as others

Replay:4/10 there a lot you can do/find in this game but I don't foresee my self going back to grab every little Item and many of the Items are useless.

Controls:6/10 there parts in this game that your going to wanna rip your hair out. sometimes I would Jump and it wouldn't make both of them JUMP (and in many part you need both of the bro's to jump)

Overall:8/10 with all the Con this is still a good game for younger kids and grown up alike. the thing to me that really saved the game from being a bad game was the Game play and sounds they had.

anyhow this is my Review on the game
