I am a huge fan of Mario and the entire franchise series!! But this game right here...too lengthy, talk too much, challenges are too frustrating and I have been on this game for two months, almost three and still dissatisfied!! I haven't even completed the entire game. I don't care at this point whether I defeat it or not!! Not happy!!!!

As a fan of the Mario and Luigi games ever since Superstar Saga, I have to say that this game is great. Visuals are great, gameplay is smooth (for the most part), and the storyline isn't too boring. However, once you get to the last phases of the game (roughly near the part where you are about to gather the parts for the ultibed) the game starts to decline. The rest of the game feels repetitive, tedious, and unnecessarily long. It took me 44 hours to beat the game, which includes time spent collecting collectibles, and at least 20 of those hours were spent from collecting the parts of the ultibed all the way u the final boss. Overall, this game would be a 9 or possibly even a 10 if the end phases of the game weren't so poor
Mario and Luigi may not seem like good RPG heroes, but that doesn't mean they aren't. The gameplay is great, just like previous Mario & Luigi games, the sprites and 3D environments meld together perfectly, and the quirky humorous story telling of the spin-off is awesome as always. Don't miss out.
