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.

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.

I was very excited when I got this game. Although it's fun to play there is so much story that doesn't play through on its own that I just lose interest. Occasionally I turn it on play, struggle to find a save point and put it away for a long peroid of time.

If you're looking for a quick moving game this is not for you.
