    Luigi's Won a Mansion!

    The bad news is that it's crawling with ghosts... and Mario seems to be trapped inside...

    Luigi's in for a spooktacular surprise as he creeps into the pitch-dark mansion he won, armed with only a flashlight and a vacuum cleaner custom-made for sucking up ghosts.

    Ghosts lurk in every nook and cranny. You'll have to master the Poltergust 3000 to vacuum them all up!

    Jewels, coins and cash are hidden throughout the mansion - and finding it all will be worth your while...

    You'll have to solve the mansion's many mysteries to catch a gallery of quirky ghouls, such as the fire-belching Mr. Luggs.

    Deep inside the mansion hide elusive boss ghosts like Bogmire, each with ghastly powers and a ghostly bone to pick with Luigi!

    After collecting special medals, you'll be able to shoot fire, water, and ice from your vacuum cleaner which will help unearth secrets and thwart extra-eerie ghosts!

    It's frightening fun on Nintendo GameCube!

    Luigi steps out from the shadow of his brother Mario and into the gloomy shadows of a very haunted house in this, his first-ever starring role. Armed with a flashlight and a customized vacuum cleaner, Luigi must rid the mansion of Boos and ghouls - and find his missing brother to boot!



    Features



    • Solve puzzling riddles and capture troublesome ghosts to put an end to Luigi's pestering poltergeist.
    • Brilliant special effects include transparent ghosts, mirror reflections, spooky shadows and many more creepy visuals.
    • Outwit resident ghosts like a young woman primping in front of a mirror, a bawling baby, a couple waltzing in the mansion's ballroom, a beefy bodybuilder and lots more.
    • Use a "Game Boy Horror" to access a 3-D map of the entire mansion and a first-person view from Luigi's perspective.


    Awaiting within Luigi's Mansion is a breathtaking (and heart-stopping!) adventure unlike anything you've ever seen on a console. From the brick-walled basement to the gloomy grounds, Luigi's Mansion is packed with chills, thrills and unending surprises.



    As he carefully creeps about the mansion, Luigi will have to find the keys that open the many locked doors. There's plenty of coins, cash and gold bars to be vacuumed up, too. Some money is out in the open, but most is concealed. Luigi will have to use his vacuum to make withdrawals from vases, bookcases, drawers and more.



    Bottom Line



    Luigi's Mansion boasts everything that makes a video game great -- irresistible gameplay, top-notch presentation and first-rate production. A frighteningly fun time will be had by all who enter Luigi's Mansion!
