Luigi’s Mansion 3 – REVIEW (Nintendo Switch)

November 14, 2019


It’s pretty wild that’s it’s taken nearly
20 years to get Luigi’s Mansion up to trilogy status, but here we are. And this time, not only are the stakes higher,
but so is the Mansion too. With Luigi’s Mansion 3, the series returns
to a single mansion format, only now in the form of a high-rise hotel, in which every
floor offers a unique setting for Luigi’s ghost-hunting adventure. It kicks off normal enough, with a hotel lobby,
rooms, and even gift shops, but it’s not long before things take a turn for the weird. As you wind your way up and down the hotel,
you’ll find that the floors only get increasingly bizarre the deeper you venture, with levels
dedicated to a film production studio, a Medieval Castle, and an egyptian Pyramid–remember,
we’re inside the hotel. To help cope with all the paranormal activity,
Luigi’s equipped with the latest Poltergust model: the G-00–oh, I see what you did there
Nintendo. And it has more functions than ever before,
giving Luigi an unprecedented number of ways to interact with the environment. Beyond the usual sucking and blowing, Luigi
can flash light sensors. fire plungers to flip over heavier objects,
deploy a blast to create a strong updraft and hover in the air, use a Dark Light to
reveal invisible objects, and of course, create a gooey clone of himself called Gooigi–that
can T-1000 his way past all kinds of obstacles like grates, fences, and even small pipes
to reach areas that Luigi can’t. And Gooigi might be the best new thing about
Luigi’s Mansion 3, opening up a range of exploration options and adding another layer
to puzzle solving. Swapping control between two is quick and
easy, though it can be a little cumbersome in situations that require rapid back and
forth action. Fortunately, a 2nd player can hop in and take
control of Gooigi at any time for some true co-op gameplay–and it works fantastically. Unlike Luigi’s Mansion on 3DS which shoehorned
co-op into a game clearly not designed for it, it’s much better integrated this time
around–to the point that I might prefer it to playing solo. Sure, things can get a little chaotic with
two of you flinging ghosts around, but the chaos only ad ds to the fun. And it makes puzzle solving all the more enjoyable Regardless of whether you’re playing together
or alone, there are more ways to interact with the environment than ever before–which
goes goes hand-in-hand with the environments also being more interactive than they’ve
ever been. Whereas most everything felt bolted to the
floor in past games, now nearly everything can be spun, thrown, dragged, knocked over,
sucked up, or destroyed completely. It can create quite the spectacle with how
much stuff you can have flying around–especially with two people–and it really makes the hotel
come alive in a way that past games haven’t quite. All these interactions also mean that the
puzzles are the most devious they’ve ever been, constantly testing your understanding
of Luiig’s moveset and how they manipulate various objects. Tracking down the pesky 5 gems hidden on each
floor can prove to be especially troublesome, as some of them are downright nasty to figure
out. I quite liked the added depth and, although
there were times that it felt a little arbitrary in exactly which move I had to to use for
a specific challenge, and I’d sometimes cycle through them all of them just to find
the one required. By default, the controls are similar to Dark
Moon’s, with movement and aiming both handled by the left stick. But there is an option to separate the two,
letting you aim independently with the right-stick, which I vastly prefer. Unfortunately, it only applies when actively
charging the Strobulb or using the Poltergust, so it doesn’t quite offer the complete freedom
of the original game, though it gets pretty close. And it betters the original in one important
way, as every function of the Poltergust is also available via the Shoulder Buttons, giving
you full control without having to take your hand off the right stick, which feels pretty
great, even if it takes a little getting used to. The core controls work well for the most part,
though I did find aiming the plunger to be a little finicky with an overly sensitive
crosshair that awkwardly darts surface to surface. I also found it a little difficult to gauge
depth at times when fighting enemies compared to past games, which is likely due to how
much more expansive the environments can be and how far the camera has to zoom out to
show it–which occurs even more frequently in co-op in order to keep both players on-screen. The ghost capturing mechanics also work similarly
to Dark Moon: Stun ghosts with a charged flash, then start sucking them up with the Poltergust. It works, but it lacks the depth of the GameCube
game, where the ghosts would drag you all over the room as you battled for control. In Luigi’s Mansion 3, you’re always always
in control–which isn’t a good thing in this case. That’s partly because the common ghost enemies
don’t put up much of a fight, although that’s not entirely their fault, as they’re up
against a new mechanic in which they don’t stand a ghost of a chance: the Slam. After latching onto a ghost for a couple of
seconds, you can slam them into the ground repeatedly just by tapping the A button. If it doesn’t kill the ghost out-right,
it’ll at least inflict some major damage–oh, and you’re practically invincible during
the maneuver too. It seems awesome at first, allowing you to
toss ghosts around like yesterday’s trash while flattening nearly everything in their
path. You feel powerful… too powerful, as it doesn’t
take long to realize that’s essentially all there is to the combat. Not only does it damage the ghost you’re
currently slamming, but it also hurts and incapacitates any other ghost that gets hit
by it too, making means you can clear an entire room by slamming one ghost into a bunch of
others and then latching onto the victims and repeating the process. And this works up until the very end of the
game. The slam is so readily accessible and vastly
overpowered that it overshadows the capturing mechanics that the series was founded on. The tug-of-war sensation, like reeling in
an incredibly angry fish, is completely gone, replaced by a button mashing minigame that
takes almost no skill to use and offers little satisfaction once the novelty wears off. And in case you’re wondering: Yes, I tried
ignoring the move entirely to see if it would help, but it’s clear the game was built
with it in mind, as you’re left defenseless with almost no movement options unlike the
original game. It doesn’t help that you’ll be find yourself
battling the same 4 ghost types throughout the adventure, adding to the repetition. Although the game tries to mix things up by
equipping them with different gear, such as sunglasses that prevents them from being stunned–they
rarely add much complexity as even they can usually be removed by slamming another ghost
into them. It all amounts to a combat system that quickly
grows stale and mind-numbingly simple–which is a bummer considering that’s it’s not
only significant component of the game but a defining element of the series. It also had the effect of making the game
remarkably easy for most of the adventure–especially when you factor in the Gold Bones you can
purchase from Professor E. Gadd that respawn you on the spot. Thankfully, the game’s wide assortment of
bosses prove to be much more interesting, challenging, and surprisingly frequent. With one per floor, they nearly match the
impressive amount of portrait ghosts from the original game, only now in far more elaborate
set pieces. These are proper boss battles through and
through and are among the best the series has to offer. I won’t spoil the cooler moments, but some
of the encounters thoroughly surprised me with how cleverly they used the environment
and Luigi’s moveset. While not every boss is a homerun, with some
being a little too obtuse for their own good, they inject a much-needed breath of fresh
air into an otherwise dull combat system. And while the Final Boss might be a little
disappointing, the build-up to it might be my favorite sequence in a Luigi’s Mansion
game yet. Again, I won’t spoil it, but it all comes
down to character–and that’s something that Luigi’s Mansion 3 has in spades. The hotel setting is an ingenious way of bringing
all of these environments under a single roof, with the scenery changing frequently enough
that no single area ever feels tiresome. Most floors will take around 45 minutes to
an hour to complete, though you can easily double that if you’re looking for all the
gems. However, while I love the diversity of the
adventure, I also feel like the mansion doesn’t make the most of its hotel theme. I was personally hoping for a little more
interplay between floors, such as finding secret routes between them, or objects that
can be carried from one to the next. But outside of a handful of scripted sequences,
there is almost no reason to revisit previous areas besides backtracking for hidden Gems
or Boos, both of which are entirely optional and offer disappointing rewards for the effort. In addition, because you unlock floors sequentially
by defeating bosses, there’s almost no room for free-roaming as you’ll always explore
the hotel in the same linear order. All of this means that the elevator is little
more than an elaborate level select menu, when it could have been used in much more
interesting ways. Imagine the surprise of summoning it, only
to find the doors open to an empty shaft, or how having to await for the elevator to
arrive could have added tension to a battle happening right outside its closed doors. Or, maybe you could lure a boss onto it in
an attempt to trap it on a different floor. It could have been a seriously cool gameplay
mechanic instead of just fancy window dressing, and the missed potential is unfortunate given
the otherwise brilliant setting. And speaking of brilliant, Luigi’s Mansion
3 is a sight to behold with spectacular large environments and what might be the best lighting
effects on Switch yet. I often just had fun playing around with Luigi’s
flashlight, watching how it painted shadows of every object onto the wall–even picture
frames if you get close enough! It’s some really impressive stuff. You’ll find all kinds of neat real-time
lighting effects throughout the hotel–I especially love the blinding blue glow of these orbs
that illuminate Luigi and everything else nearby. You’ll find a ton of reflective surfaces
too, like marble floors that add to the hotel’s grandeur. The animation is also top-notch, whether it’s
Luigi’s consistently hilarious scaredy-cat reactions or Ghosts desperately clawing to
avoid being sucked up. The cutscenes, in particular, could almost
be mistaken for a Luigi’s Mansion movie at first glance, especially with how many
there are–just check out the texture on Luigi’s clothes! The attention to detail is just fantastic
throughout the adventure, like how Luigi blinds himself every time he unleashes a charged
flash or how rats cling to the floor to avoid being sucked up. Performance wise, the game seems to maintain
30 frames per seconds most of the time with occasional small dips when things get a little
hectic, which seemed a little more common when playing co-op. Unfortunately, I found the music to be entirely
forgettable throughout, lacking the catchy and memorable tunes found in the prior two
games. Beyond co-op. Luigi’s Mansion 3 also offers a couple of
multiplayer modes. ScreamPark offers a trio of minigames playable
by up to 8 people locally, but perplexingly are entirely team-based, meaning you’ll
need an even amount of players to make it fair, and there are no CPUs available to make
up the difference. As I was only able to try it out with a handful
of friends, I can’t definitively say whether they’re worth getting a large group together,
but I can’t imagine it’d be worth the effort as they felt more like Mario Party
rejects during my time with them. The ScareScaper fairs better fortunately,
allowing you to explore a 5 or 10 story tower with a team of 4 people–or 8 if you count
their co-op Gooigi partners. And it’s playable both locally and online. And every session offers something slightly
different, wuth the maze-like floors are randomly generated, requiring you to learn them on
the fly as you go about completing each floor’s objective before the time limit elapses, whether
it’s capturing all the ghosts, collecting a set amount of money, or rescuing Toads. I played through the ScareScraper probably
close to a dozen times or so, in both the 5 and 10 floor variants and while I had fun,
it’s still subject to the same mediocre combat system that can be found in the main
game. And even though I was playing with 3 other
people, it rarely felt like the mode required or even incentivised much teamwork, beyond
splitting up to try and cover more ground faster, which kind of undermines the point
of working as a team. Disappointingly, it only takes a few playthroughs
to see every challenge this mode has to offer–and it offers shockingly few options compared
to the original version found in Dark Moon, even scrapping the upgrade system that gave
your coins purpose. It also doesn’t help that the boss fight
at the end is always the same, which is even worse considering it lifts most of its attacks
from the game’s real final boss. On the upside, the online worked well in my
experience, with no real notable lag issue. Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a beautiful-looking
adventure full of great puzzles and cute moments. I enjoyed exploring the hotel’s eclectic
floors and unraveling their many puzzles, especially with what Gooig brings to the table. But the entire experience is stunted by a
shallow combat system and repetitive ghost encounters that aren’t particularly fun
or exciting–outside of boss battles–when is especially disappointing considering that
used to be a series highlight for me. Overall, I Liked Luigi’s Mansion 3–I just
wish it had better combat and went a bit further with the hotel concept. Thankfully, playing co-op with a friend makes
these issues a bit easier to overlook, while letting you better focus on what the game
does well, which is great set pieces and some awesome boss battles. And with that, thanks for watching and make

    Hey guys! First, the "censored" boss is NOT who you think it is. It's just a normal boss from the ScareScraper.
    Secondly, to the "nostalgia goggles" peeps. I literally replayed and reviewed the original game just a year ago:

    You mentioned that the fights in this game aren’t extremely difficult, but in my opinions that’s ok. I never really thought of boss fights and defeating enemies as the main challenge of luigi’s mansion: dark moon. That game’s main challenge was solving the puzzles. All the mansions were like big escape rooms. I hope that’s the case in this game, because I though that was unique for a Mario game.

  • Reply Fire Dust October 29, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    Although I'm still willing to give this game a shot, one thing I admittingly have to agree with TheBitBlock on in regards to this games visual design is that this game REALLY needs to dim the lights. Luigi didn't have a flashlight cause it was cute, but because the mansion was nearly pitch black, only giving you a vague idea of what your surroundings are. A lot of areas in "LM3" are a little too bright, kinda rendering Luigi's flashlight completely pointless. Either have it automatically turn off in those certain areas, or maybe have a function where the flashlight has this ability that can uncover hidden goodies that when in the brighter lit areas, can only be seen through a secret seeking mode in the flashlight. Kinda like those old Halloween activity books where you have to fight a certain object using a specially made flashlight accessory that came with the book. Also it would've been nice if Next Level Games took a page from "Luigi's Mansion 3DS Remake" and have the slam function be its own separate mode, similar to how in the LM 3DS remake, you could chose between the original games mechanics, or play with the mechanics of "Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon".

    I'm disappointed, I was hoping this would have more engaging combat similar to the original, but it seems the smash attack is broken and overpowered, and combat seems boring, ghosts are too weak and a threat at all like in the orginal. Sigh…. I'll wait until I get this on sale used, also it had framerates issues at 30fps? I guess there was no hope's of 60fps like with Zelda links awakening.

The detail and charm in the game is just amazing, and I just want to see what the story turns out to be. The combat system does look pretty nice, I just hope it doesn't have me fighting against the ghosts so hard I feel like I'll rip out the Joycon's stick, Dark Moon had me like that all the time 😂

    LM2 OST was as forgettable though it really wasn't good. At first you think it's good because it's not midi but instrumental. But the OST is over the top and the melodies are either bad or non existent (that shitty main theme constantly playing seriously). Anyway I see all my fears regarding this game being full Dark Moon style and not like the original were sadly proven true. Also the devs really made fun of the people who complained about Dark Moon's mission system lmao. "It's gone… but actually it's still there, just a little bit more hidden"

    (My opinion) Luigi’s mansion 3 is the best switch game so far I really just hope it doesn’t take another 20 or so years to make another 3 Luigi’s mansion games actually if they do it right they will continue the series within 2 maybe 3 years max

    Honestly what disappoints me the most about Luigi's mansion 3 is the scare scrapper. Its pretty much a nerfed version of dark moons version of this mode. Plus the slam move does make the towers feel less challenging then before since 8 Luigi's can cause an uno reverse card to the ghost. Sure its not laggy and there is an option to play with the same people but I feel their should have been more modes for online like having players play as ghost while the others have to catch. Or even better just have a mode where one player can play as king boo and hunt down the Luigi's and put them in a painting within a time limit. And the other Luigi's can free there comrades by using the dark moon device.😌 I hope they will update this game with more modes because right now I'm not seeing this game be worth the online

    I'm wondering if limiting the slam to once every charge would have been a better implementation of the mechanic

  • Reply spartandud3 November 3, 2019 at 5:40 pm

    Why can't they just put the original game on the Switch with good controls?

    K so i just beat Luigi's mansion 3, and its a solid 8/10, reason being that the controls are garbage, the frame rate is an issue, there is a lack of continuity cause polterpup should have pupils but he doesnt, and the jumping machanis is a spammable not die button but its use in puzzels and interactions is not well defined, and some floors are literally just a boss fight and nothing else, which sucks cause these floors themes were all cool and i wish they had more in them. Also lm3 had the worst boo catching mechanic in the series. The biggest sin is the annoying ass low health sound, which is by far the most annoying low health sound i have ever heard in a videogame. Its 2019, even pokemon removed the annoying liw health sound come the fuck on. These are the only flaws, the rest of the game is fucking amazing and well worth the 6 year wait.

    I remember buying a game cube with the first Luigis Mansion.
    This looks like a great first game for the Switch 🙂

    Luigis mansion 3 is too easy, the ghosts are shit and the hotel feels boring. Theres no ominous vibe that the first game had and the second game had but to a lesser extent. The bosses are great and way better than Luigis mansion 2s bosses, but that's it's only upside. I mean I still love it and think its great, just not on par with 1 and even 2

    Hey Andre, there are plenty of parts in the game where you can get away with not using the slam move.

  • Reply MrFandango Jimmies November 5, 2019 at 9:13 am

    I feel like Andre is the ultimate boomer. He can try to say he isn't because he played 1 a year ago but man the stroking off of 1 as if it was flawless is super frustrating.

    Great review, as much as I like this game I agree with the game’s problems brought up in this video.

    honestly I originally started with 2 played the 3ds remake last year pretty quiick game honestly not aa good as dark moon and it's pretty clear still a solid game this one seems to be the best one though

  • Reply Jayden C November 6, 2019 at 7:19 am

    ok you said the flashing mechanic here lacks depth from the original which was more tedious then anything…what about dark moon?which even if you do get them it's still annoying

    The problem is the at the end of the game, it doesn't safe the win! Also it leaves you at the rooftop save so you can't collect the rest of the boos or gems, I also wanted to go into the collection myself and see king boo in it!

    I've never played a Luigi's Mansion game before, and man, I'm upset at myself for waiting this long to try one. Luigi's Mansion 3 is EASILY one of the best games of the year. It's a genuine masterpiece. Combat is super fun, the puzzles are fantastic, and the story/presentation is amazing. Don't hesitate to get this, it's GREAT.

    I told you that I can never buy this game as I said from my last comments. Even Link's Awakening Remake has a much better deal than this game(Even with some issues like framerate inconsistency, stupid control issues since it's not like ALBW or even previous 2D Zelda games like Oracle series & Minish Cap, certain dungeons aren't fixed for the better like Eagle's Tower & Turtle Rock, and Chamber Dungeons can go fuck right off.). But if you ask me about my favorite moments in my Switch life, I'll take Super Smash Bros Ultimate's Smash Mode over anything.

    @Cartoon Critic

    THAT NOT WHAT I MEAN, YOU BROKEN FANBOY! WHEN LUIGI’S MANSION 3 GOT A “LIKED” WHILE LINK’S AWAKENING REMAKE GOT A “LIKED-A-LOT”, IT MEANS THAT LUIGI’S MANSION 3 GOT MORE PROBLEMS THAN LINK’S AWAKENING REMAKE! YOU GOT IN MY WAY THUS I HAVE TO BLOCK YOU! FUCK OFF!

    @Circunflexo
    WRONG REPLY, YOU DUMBASS BROKEN FANBOY! YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO UNDERSTAND MY OPINIONS ABOUT LUIGI'S MANSION 3 GOT A LOWER SCORE THAN LINK'S AWAKENING, NOT GIVING ME SHIT OPINION! THE REASON WHY I MADE A CAPPED COMMENTS IS BECAUSE I'M NOT HAPPY WITH BROKEN FANBOYS WHO GIVE ME STUPID REPLIES FOR FAILING TO UNDERSTAND MY OPINIONS! AND SINCE YOU INTERFERE WITH ME LIKE "CARTOON CRITIC" BEFORE, YOU LEFT ME NO CHOICE BUT TO BLOCK YOU! NOW FUCK OFF!

  • Reply Nate Crane November 13, 2019 at 5:03 am

    Yeah, I loved this game, but I was really hoping something would happen with the Elevator, Luigi hits the button to call it, and nothing happens, so E Gadd calls him and says he's working on fixing it or something, and Luigi is cornered by a ton of ghosts and has to survive. And I totally agree with what you said about the combat, it gets pretty dull. I didn't feel like I was too strong, but I just wish that like in the first game, you and the ghost would be dragging each other all over the room. My overall opinion: 9.6/10

  • Reply Steve Spud November 13, 2019 at 9:50 am

    In addition to the shallow combat the overall enemy variety was lacking as well. My only complaint with an otherwise fantastic game!

    Having never played any of the previous games one of us who will remain nameless struggled with the controls but we have been having a blast playing.
