Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon


Luigi is now stuck in a ghost busting job and earning much better than what he used to earn as a plumber. His new jobs takes him to vacuum up ghosts and earn coins, gold bars and cash.

Once again the Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon casts Luigi as an assistant of professor Elvin, an old little man speaking in Japanese and looks like a distant relative of Captain Olimar. This time Luigi has been given the job of busting the ghosts around the city.

Now the question is: Why Luigi only? Well, Luigi is afraid of everything and even its fun to watch him getting scared. Luigi is sent to different haunted locations, where he has to make the places ghost free using his spectral vacuum, The Poltergust 5000. This task is like fishing, where you have to stun the ghost using the flashlight, after which using vacuum you can "hook" them up. Occasionally power boost is required for trapping the ghost completely inside the vacuum. In some or the other way, it looks like a Ghostbusters, which is quite fascinating. It's quite appealing to see ghosts trying to escape from the sucking stream coming out of the vacuum.

Other than hunting ghosts, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is an adventure game, where Luigi is being involved in solving various puzzles for locating new items and opening new pathways. The Poltergust (Vacuum Cleaner) supports various attachments that help during exploration. The "Dark-Light Device" reveals invisible objects whereas a "Flash bulb" activates special sensors. Even the Vacuum cleaner is interesting in its own way. Luigi can use it to suck up rugs and uncover hidden switches.

Talking about the Dark Moon's locations, you will experience everything, from gloomy mansions to deserted mines. Also, there are several hidden rooms and strange devices included in the game that are fun to discover. After playing for a while, the game structure starts dragging. Each location is headed to an open world and all Luigi's goals are broken into several missions and all discrete chunks leads to repetition. Even capturing ghosts become boring after certain levels. All the ghosts differ slightly in their attacking patterns that makes it even easier for Luigi to catch them. Second half of the game offers shorter missions, which might be a disappointing point for most of the gamers.

Even though Dark Moon features three different multiplayer modes, there is no incentive given to the player for working together. Also, there is a time limit option added to the multiplayer mode that would not allow you to apply your strategies. There are few pre-recorded voice clips available but the online communication is unavailable, which may not give you enough reason to play the game again in multiplayer mode.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is all around charming, goofy Luigi himself. The basic idea of catching and busting ghosts using a vacuum is quite appealing. Even the environments are absolutely worth exploring and seeing. The game has scope but after walking down in a laborious way through all the 5 locales, you may end up feeling exhausted.

LEGO City Underworld


The LEGO City Undercover game is pictured in an open-sandbox world. In this game, players will be playing the character of a cop named Chaise McCain who is free to run in the LEGO city, filled with colors of distractions, pedestrians, cars and other collectible items to grab.
 

LEGO City Underworld


 
The game begins with a search mission where McCain moves around the city looking for a criminal Rex Fury and has to complete several missions in between. In order to get closer to the target and enter into LEGO City's underworld, McCain has to pose himself as a crook. The story line is filled with silly humor and stupid jokes that will make you laugh out loud.

The surface-level presentation is what makes this City Undercover game more stronger. Vocal cast is simply superb and an excellent soundtrack makes this game even more interesting to play. The game is well designed and has lots of things to collect, build bricks and start "Super Build" construction. You will be able to unlock tons of costumes and vehicles. The environment of this game is favored with your ability to jump across the car, ride on animals and destroy scenery. But when you will be engaged in the real story mode all your excitement will go in vain. Starting missions involve several chases through the city, followed by some detective work, giving you the same feel of running from room to room, breaking and building things, sufficient enough to make you puzzled. It's not that the gameplay is bad or something, it looks more similar to old LEGO adventures with an addition of sandbox elements. Apart from this disappointment factor, the classic framework of the game will give you consistent entertainment.

Justifying its title (Undercover), the game is all about disguise and moving ahead. Chase will unlock several costumes, each with unique skills. As a fireman, you can open the barricaded doors, as a farmer you can water potted plants to make climbable surface, as a robber you can use a crowbar to get through the doors. Switching between these costumes will help you to clear several levels. Whether its performing running stunts using simple button controls, scaling buildings or spying criminals, the LEGO City Undercover is genuinely blessed with new ideas and you will be enjoying some great fun time. Mostly, GamePad will be used to scan areas for secret dialogs and hidden items. The game is filled with funny incidents as well. There will be a time when McCain will be simply moving around the streets in between missions and will be looking for pigs to fire it out of cannons to ramp off the blocked areas and get access to new costumes.

Even though the controls are stiff, destroying the environment to earn a number of bricks helps in balancing the excessive stiffness of the gaming controls. So even if the car that you are driving is skidding out of control, you will be rewarded with points for that as well. There are certain technical limitations in this game that can hold back your experience. The loading time between the environments is quite lengthy and while navigating the city streets, you will experience frame rate dips as well.

Overall, The LEGO City Undercover is a fun filled game that has the story element to grab the audience across the world. Even though it may lack "Replay Value" due to some hard-to-ignore issues, but the funny animated gaming environment will somehow balance your overall gaming experience.
