Okay...the game is cute. Its not a compelling story that will entice you to play for hours on end. It is a simple story based on our beloved mario and luigi. The combat is ....just as simple as the characters themselves. But as simple and this game is, its is just as much fun. The story doesn't keep you playing , but the fun of the game does.
Whats funny about the game is that in the classic mario world....jumping on the head of your opponent knocks it out...and that is the way battles work here. You bop them on the head and it is seriously...funny. If you pick this up..you are guaranteed a fun time.
Overall a good game. Its drawback is the sometimes complex timing system used with the attacks. The graphics are good and the maps use of the dual screen is excellent. It does help if one has a players guide for this game since some of the end characters are very hard to defeat without one.
