>>323434743 I like backtracking in games, but making it so that you have to rescan an area you already scanned because the collectables are placed differently in each mission was fucking infuriating. Such incredibly bad design.
Never thought I'd say this. The game is too long. The first one was better because before it got any more repetitive, it ended. Dank Moon, however, takes twice as long to beat. Maybe even more than that.
>>323435076 But I actually enjoyed that. I thought it was fun to go through the same level but have to look for the slight variations from the last one to find all the collectibles. Like those "spot the difference" visual puzzles but you're a scared shitless and sometimes humming Luigi playing ghostbuster.
>>323438056 >Also no more portrait ghost was a bummer, This killed the game. >Make a sequel >Don't bring back a core mechanic that was teh best part I swear, what the fuck is wrong with modern nintendo.
The worst part of the game is having to go back to base after every checkpoint.
What we could have had:
>Luigi go to this mansion! >I'll bother you every once in a while with new info >you explore the entire fucking mansion if you want
What we got:
>Luigi we need the key >get the key >okay come back >luigi turn the power on >turn it on >okay come back >luigi you need to unlock this door >unlock it >okay come back >luigi you need to etc >etc >okay come back
repeat for several mansions.
That and the multiplayer is fucked
>Climb X floors! >if someone disconnects you're one less luigi for the rest of the run >you'll be lucky if you can climb 5 floors without losing someone
>>323434743 The first game had far more creative 'portrait' ghosts. Second game felt like they made it in the most lazy way possible, several essentially identical levels. Plus the interconnectedness of the mansion in one really made the game. I just marathoned luigis mansion on dolphin yesterday, even after playing it god know how many times over I still cant gold frame boolossus
But it made things easier to do and search without needing to go through a long and annoying time waster to get there
I don't understand why people pretend this design is bad
It's to push the "Pick up and play" experience and it's not like it's fucking Mario Sunshine where you can do things before entering a level, you had to walk for Atleast 5 fucking minutes every time you open a new area in Luigi's Mansion
>>323442239 >more lighthearted atmosphere no. the game came out in 2001. most of the people in this thread were probably like 9-12 when it came out. LM1 looked "scary" to us because we were kids. Playing it now both games are light hearted as fuck
>>323442474 It's all about the exploration and the setting. Even if it's cartoony and silly, the first game had a nice atmosphere to it. The mission structure absolutely kills all that and all the pacing, and built for a handheld my ass, the missions end up being long as fuck, since you're pretty much forced to explore the same areas over and over again. It's terrible design and padding.
The 2nd game had way better puzzles, more difficult and engaging boss battles, and a much larger variety of areas. The 1st game had much better atmosphere and slightly better controls. Overall I prefer 2.
>>323434743 It was shit and I'm tired of Neotendrones defending the work of pussywhipped Canadians. Next Level Cucks stopped being worth a damn past Punch-Out on the Wii. Ever since then Miyamoto and friends have had them on a leash.
I'm sure you guys will unironically enjoy and defend that piece of shit Federation Force too, because that's how things work around here, isn't it? :3c
