Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is the third entry in the Mario and Luigi Series following Super Star Saga and Partners In Time. In this game you get to play as Mario, Luigi and Bowser. The story begins with many toads in mushroom kingdom becoming...

When you play as Bowser you'll only have the ability to punch things. Later in the game you'll get your fire breathing restored and learn how to do a shell stomp or roll around like a spiky ball. Many areas in the map are only accessible by using these...

Review: Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (Nintendo DS)

 

The best version of Nintendo's famous plumbers over the last few years hasn't involved Galaxies, Paper, or new versions of the old games. It isn't Kart racing, sports playing, or anything else that Nintendo has managed to insert its mascot into. For...

If you own a DS and like Mario, get Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. It is one of my favorite DS games this year and one of the most entertaining portable games I have played.

Reaching new depths of awesome.

Surreal setting, characters and sense of humor, bright and cheery graphics, challenging battles, makes full use of the DS's hardware

Adam Sandler once sang in The Wedding Singer,”All I wanna do is grow old with you,” which for many, whether we intended to or not, happened in the case of Mario and friends . Till this day, we can still see small children getting introduced to the ever...

Mario and Luigi return for another fun RPG, this time taking on Bowser's innards to protect the Mushroom Kingdom.

Mario and Luigi: Bower's Inside Story Review

 

Mario and Bowser's rivalry over Princess Peach goes back almost a quarter century and has served as fertile ground for a bumper crop of successful games. Why then change the formula and make these enemies work together? Does Nintendo's new RPG, Mario...

Even with this design-misstep, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is an incredible entertainment value. It looks great, it plays great, and depending on how interested you are in playing all the mini-games and collecting all the stuff, you're...
