this time mario travels... but this time he travels in time! in mario and luigi partners in time. you battle evil aliens in different time periods in some of your favorite pleases like yoshis island and bowser castle. it also has some good clean graphics. and baby mario and luigi can come along in the game. battle is better with bro items like hammer and fire flowers. it is a vary awesome game! 10 no question's!

The first Mario & Luigi for GBA was a blast to play. This one is even funner!

Graphics
Really good for a DS game. I liked them. Just like the first, it had a wacky look to it that made it what it is.

Sound
The music in this game is great. It goes perfectly with it. I don't know what more to say...

Gameplay
The gameplay in this game is a lot of fun! Just like the first, you move from dungeon to dungeon only this time, you have Baby Mario and Baby Luigi to aid you. With this game, you control Mario, Luigi, Baby Mario, and Baby Luigi with A, B, X, and Y. Many times in the game, you need to split the babies with the older Mario & Luigi. That's what makes this game funner than the original. It's more of a "teamwork" game. The puzzles aren't really hard at all. The game is easy, as long as you don't skip all the enemies. However, the game is sort of a "dungeon-crawler" as there are barely any towns in the game and you pretty much go from dungeon to dungeon. That's really only in the second half though. And the time traveling wasn't all it hyped up to be. I mean, it was great seeing Peach's Castle infested by Shroobs in the different time era, and same for the villages and such, but there wasn't enough of it. But what there was, was good.

Replay Value
The game is about 15 hours. After you beat it, you probably won't want to start a new file. But you will come back to it after a few months most likely.

Controls
The controls work very well and it's a fun idea to have each character have their own button :)

Difficulty
As mentioned above, the game isn't too hard. If you skip enemies, it might be a bit harder fighting the bosses, or tougher enemies at the later point in the game, but you probably won't get stuck in the game too much. You shouldn't need a FAQ or guide, because if you do, then you know you really suck at video games.

So overall, this game is worth your money whether bought or rent. Although it's up to you if you just want to beat it.
