Das Remake darf als durchwegs gelungen bezeichnet werden. Das Spiel hält noch genauso wie damals bei Laune, und punktet vor allem mit Komik. Die alten Spielmechaniken sind intuitiv und stimmig, und die Neuerungen eine Bereicherung. Selbst die Bewegungssteuerung fällt überraschend gut aus. Einzig und allein der Single-Modul-Multiplayer-Modus hinterlässt einen weniger guten Eindruck. Das Spiel ist jedenfalls eine klare Kaufempfehlung für alle, die ihren Nintendo 3DS noch einmal abstauben wollen.
Luigi’s Mansion is a must play if you’ve never enjoyed it before. If you still own the GameCube version, there really isn’t enough here to warrant a new purchase unless you need the slightly updated visuals and ability to take it on the road. I personally believe this game, like it’s 2013 sequel, Dark Moon, is better suited for a home console experience – and fortunately, we’ll all be enjoying Luigi’s Mansion 3 on the Nintendo Switch when it launches in 2019.

Ghostbusting isn't quite as easy as it was on the GameCube, due to the 3DS's weak analogue nub, but the motion controls do work with some practice. Grezzo's improvements are many, but they're subtle additions rather than extravagant changes. Nevertheless, Nintendo's 17-year old game still feels surprisingly fresh.

Luigi's Mansion is one of Nintendo's most unique games and now that gamers who never played it before have the opportunity to enjoy it on-the-go and with so many cool new features, it's hard not to full-heartedly recommend this now-portable classic.

Luigi’s Mansion proves that there’s still life in the 3DS, even as the Switch seems positioned to become its replacement. This version is so much more than a look at a title from that past. We’re getting to play a lost piece of Nintendo’s history; a game that was originally designed for 3D, but was never fully realised due to the limitations of the technology at the time. After nearly two decades, we're playing Luigi's Mansion as it was originally intended, and it is as fun now as it was when the GameCube launched. If you’ve never played it before, you should definitely pick up this version. If you already have, the added functionality in the 3DS port provides more than enough reason to pick up the Poltergust one more time, although if you're one of those people who found the 2001 original disappointingly shallow (yes, such people actually exist), then this update is unlikely to change your mind, even with the welcome introduction of 3D support.

Now, it's reappeared on 3DS, which is a bit strange considering a sequel to the game hit the system before the original did, but I'm thankful for it. Is Luigi's scary side story a trick or a delicious Halloween treat? Let's just say it's certainly a game you'll want to sink your fangs into.
4Players.de (Oct 22, 2018)
Die Neuauflage von Luigi's Mansion hat auch nach all den Jahren fast nichts von ihrem alten Charme eingebüßt: Es macht immer noch einen Heidenspaß, mit Angsthase Luigi die dunklen Korridore der Geistervilla zu erkunden und es in bester Ghostbusters-Manier mit den frechen Schreckgespenstern aufzunehmen. Allerdings wird auch schnell deutlich, dass die grafische Überarbeitung nicht nur Vorteile mit sich bringt, die Steuerung ohne Schiebepad-Pro Kompromisse erfordert und sich Luigis erster Ausflug ins Spukhaus qualitativ nicht auf dem Niveau des ausgezeichneten Nachfolgers befindet. Daran ändern auch nette Zugaben wie der Team-Modus, die erneuten Kämpfe gegen Gemäldegeister in der Galerie oder moderne Elemente wie Achievement-Trophäen und Amiibo-Einbindung nichts.
Destructoid (Nov 03, 2018)
Some technical and control issues aside, I still think the 3DS version of Luigi's Mansion is a solid option for newcomers or for people looking to revisit this GameCube classic. Catching various ghosts and completing Professor E. Gadd's gallery is a perfect time burner on the go and Grezzo have done a solid job bringing Luigi's Mansion to the 3DS. I just don't know if I'd prioritize playing the 3DS version over the GameCube version in the future.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Oct 31, 2018)
Luigi's Mansion blijft een charmante titel, maar omdat het exclusief voor 3DS ontwikkelde Luigi's Mansion 2 een betere game is, voelt deze port wat overbodig aan.
