Product Description

Mario & Luigi Show Their Intestinal Fortitude: In his evil plot to take over the Mushroom Kingdom, Fawful tricks Bowser� into eating a magic mushroom. The mushroom causes Bowser to begin inhaling everything around him, including Mario�, Luigi� and Princess Peach�! Do the Mario Bros. have the guts to rescue Peach and escape? GAME FEATURES: � Players are in control of two separate storylines. One features Bowser and his efforts to stop an arch-villain from taking over his castle. Meanwhile, inside Bowser, the microbe-sized Mario & Luigi must muscle their way through challenges and keep their nerve if they want to find a way out. They take action to control Bowser from the inside � but without his knowledge. � Players can switch between storylines at will. What happens inside Bowser affects what he�s doing on the outside. Sometimes Mario & Luigi must solve puzzles and challenges behind the scenes to help Bowser overcome various obstacles and advance the plot. � Players must make well-timed button presses to enhance their performance during battles and challenges. In some battles, Bowser grows so large that players must turn their Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi� system sideways, blow into the microphone or tap on the touch screen with the stylus to keep up with the action. � The game features the same hilarious dialogue that has been the hallmark of the Mario & Luigi series.

Honestly? This is one of the better games I've played this year.

The humour in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is ever present like it's predecessors, only with more Bowser! The combat is simple as ever making it accessible to newcomers to the genre whilst at the same time welcoming back returning fans of this branch of the Mario universe. The sound quality is much higher as well to this time around.

The battle music is slightly... boring. But that can be overlooked quite easily. But if you are anything like me, You'll want to rush through the Mario & Luigi Parts to get to the more entertaining and comical Bowser parts.

A highly recommended buy for the DS this winter!

If you only know Mario from the Super Mario franchise, you must try this game. It takes the fun and action you are familiar with but adds a dallop of humour...assuming you find the struggles of Mushroom Kingdom funny. I've never cared for typical RPG games but Bowser's Inside Story does a perfect job of taking RPG elements and making them palatable for the casual Nintendo gamer. Again, if you like anything Super Mario, you'll immediatlely enjoy this game.

This is what Partners in Time SHOULD have been, a sequel that's actually better than its predecessor. You will be amazed with how much you can do in this game. While Partners in Time was too short, this one can take well over 20 hours to beat. Also, while Partners in Time had you constantly reusing the same concepts outside of battle over and over again, only introducing one new feature in each area, this game introduces something new, even putting a unique spin on the old concepts, every 5-30 minutes. Also, it's not just one plot. What made Superstar Saga interesting was that there was more than one storyline going on. PIT kinda felt rushed as there were few plot twists and they just dove right into the "collect stars" storyline. Also, this game doesn't hand you the three stars. You actually have to work for them whereas PIT gave you the last 2 Cobalt Star Shards after making you deal with all kinds of torment getting the first 3. Also, the Bros Attacks: In PIT, Nintendo introduced this horrid idea called Bros Items. That meant after using a Bros Attack, you'd need to find another copy of it before you could use it again. Luckily, this game brought up the Bros Point system and even introduces more inventive Bros Attacks than PIT had. Sure, they'll never be as cool as the ones from SSS, but at least they did a better job with this one. Anyway, I could go on and on, but I've said enough. You really gotta play this game. This should have been game of the year, not Scribblenauts! It's the sequel we should have gotten from the start.

Bowser's Inside Story stars Mario's nemesis as a playable character. You'll control the Mario Bros too, but most of the time they're stuck inside Bowser's guts.

Switching between Bowser and the digesting Mario Bros is quick and instantaneous. At times you'll need to coordinate what Bowser is doing in order to better explore his guts. In one example, drinking from a fountain causes Bowser to fill up with water allowing the Mario Bros to swim; when you stop drinking the water level recedes again. Basically each area inside of Bowser's body is filled with puzzle-platforming challenges or mini-games that help boost Bowser's adrenaline or pump up his muscles.

Similar to the Mother series there are no random encounters, and you can win the advantage by bopping enemies to engage them. On the flip side if you slip up and let them get the upper hand, you'll enter the battle stunned and open to their attacks.

The battle system reinvigorates the old turn-based formula with alternating rounds of timing-based attack and evasion. Instead of simply trading damage with enemies until one side wins, you can add emphasis to an attack by hitting the button again at the moment of impact, and avoid enemy attacks altogether with proper timing and good reflexes. Enemies will subtly telegraph their offensive strategy, and with careful observation you'll know whether they'll be targeting Mario or Luigi, allowing you to focus on that split-second moment when you need to hit a button to dodge or deflect the attack.

It's hard to find fault in the game's execution besides a few very minor details which don't really detract from the experience, and everything is simple and user-friendly.

Je m'attendais beaucoup de ce jeu. J'avais constamment l'excellent Mario RPG The Legend of Seven Stars en tête, je croyais que ce jeu aurait pu être sur la même échelle de plaisir que ce dernier mais non, pas du tout.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story est divertissant, mais j'ai trouvé qu'il y avait vraiment des longueurs par moment. L'histoire et le déroulement n'était pas assez en symbiose, je m'explique : l'histoire est courte et très simple mais pour avancer dans l'histoire, il faut combattre sans cesse pour gagner des niveaux... Oui, normal vous me direz... Mais à un point tel où c'est handicapant. Il est sensé d'avoir un rythme pour éviter qu'il ait un grand décallage entre le niveau des personnages et les combats principaux au cours de l'histoire... Mais j'ai été souvent prise à faire un tas de combats seulement pour gagner des forces pour pouvoir battre les "boss". Peut-être que je devinais les places où aller trop facilement, je ne sais pas. Plus "d'énigmes", se creuser la tête un peu plus, aurait été agréable pour avancer dans le jeu.

Comme je disais, le scénario était peut-être un peu trop simple à mon goût. Je trouvais que le jeu manquais d'équilibre sous différents plans. Mais dans l'ensemble, il a pu combler tout de même mon envie de divertissement. Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story est relativement long (25-30 hrs) mais aurait pu être très court... J'ai l'impression que Nintendo a étiré le scénario pour en faire un jeu.
