    - Mario & Luigi 3 (9/9/8/9, 35 points): This is the highest-scoring game of the month (outscoring both SFIV and Skate 2), and while there are "no dramatic changes," Famitsu's reviewers could find very little to complain about. "The fun action and lovely pixel art of the previous game has been further polished, creating a game filled with the sort of fun only the DS can provide." The M&L-touring-Bowser's-body gimmick is lots of fun, it seems, and while one reviewer "would ask for a little more length," this is still "a great game, one that serves as an example of how games should be made."

    That was the famitsu review of the latest entry in the Mario and Luigi series. [​IMG]

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Anyone know what what the last M&L game got for a comparison?
    Pumped for it now Famitsu have given it a pretty good review [​IMG]. Might even play the Japanese version seeing as I'm far too impatient.

    I'm curious too, what did they rate Partners in Time?

    Who cares about Famitsu's rating? They said Pokemon battle revolution was superior. And it sucks more than anything else...

    There's simple logic behind getting this game- don't knock it till you try it. It's not like many of the people here will have to waste money on it.

    Glad to hear. I usually agree with Famitsu's reviews, so this should be good. I feel kinda lame considering I haven't finished any of the portable Mario RPG titles yet though, so I probably won't be playing this one any time soon.

    I like that the game will be more like a platformer RPG when you're in Bowser, will make it more fresh rather than just another sequel.

    It seems like its coming out too soon to be honest, even in Japan.

    I am definitely looking forward to it. I hope it either uses the touch screen really well of doesn't at all. I was puzzled when you were asked to use the touch screen in PiT as you never used it before or after that part.

    It does use the touchscreen. Looks like it uses it well too.
