The last deserted island I visited had smoke monsters and polar bears, not crippling debt and tents

The missions were definitely in place to stop the game from overwhelming the humble 3DS: this was an expansion of a not-too-distant home console game, albeit a launch title.

I would agree with this had we not recently had that same console game on the 3DS!

I do own a copy of LM2 but I've never found myself chomping at the bit to go and play it. It's not really discussed, is it? The original gets mentioned from time to time, but I hear very little chatter about its sequel. Maybe people will start chatting about it more once LM3 hits shelves.

I know what you mean, Smurf and Jim (Jay, go play it - it's still great): it's the second game I've bigposted about in a row where I really enjoyed it, but I can't actually remember that much. Eh? I think (I may be talking out of my bottom here) that's because the key factor was the charm and the atmosphere, and as Smurf says, not so much about level set-pieces (bosses aside). It's a great game when you're plugged into your headphones, but take them out and it's hard to remember all that much about.

The exceptions are the soundtrack and the Polterpup moments though. Love dat pup. Love

I'm very much up for that.

This really is another KIU, isn't it? Everyone who's played it loves it, but nobody can remember any specific moments.

My favourite:

Happy to see this thread back - good stuff Balladeer. Thumbs Up!

I didn’t finish Luigi’s Mansion 2. I think I dropped it somewhere in the fourth mansion. It was a long time ago now, but what I remember of Luigi’s Mansion 2 was that it had some fun moments between some sadly boring backtracking. The opening moments weren’t up to much, IIRC. I agree up to a point about it’s charm – it’s really nicely animated, and I maybe found it quite amusing at times – but…I’m not sure. It just felt like it lacked those sparks of imagination and the freshness that the original Luigi’s Mansion had.

I thought the first one was a lot nicer to play on the GameCube, and definitely a lot nicer to hear and play. On 3DS, there were a lot of small differences in the sound, appearance and even in the way it felt. Luigi’s Mansion just felt so right on GameCube. I never thought that the 3DS had the guts to do Luigi’s Mansion justice though. I always thought that this would have been a much better Wii U game, much better off on a system with the hardware to deliver it.

This really is another Kid Icarus Uprising for me!

That's me told! Laughing Damning, Cappa, damning; but possibly fair.

I wonder if my more positive view might incorporate the fact that I wasn't all that impressed with the original Mansion? It did some nice things, but it felt a bit like a launch stopgap, what with its use of a secondary character and its short length and small map and emphasis on replayability and score chasing and and and. I was young and foolish and might be more kindly disposed if I played it for the first time now, but at the time it felt a bit throwaway for The Big Launch Games.

Then LM2 came along and improved on those areas. Luigi, the secondary character, was not only established as a 'hero' in his own right by getting a sequel alone, but he also conveyed a boatload of personality ('Bad doggie!') in this game. Meanwhile we got more mansions, a bigger title, and a game that didn't expect you to replay 4h of content to get a decent amount out of it. The original was too short but the amount it expected me to replay too long, and the sequel had neither problem. That probably endeared it to me more than it would to big fans of the original, who would concentrate more on the areas where it fell down in comparison. LIKE THOSE CHUFFING BEAM SEGMENTS.

Also I don't mind backtracking!
