Trivia

Great, funny, exilerating, Easy to learn, and easy to get hooked on.
5 April 2002 | by Squirelly JoeSee all my reviews

My first GameCube game. I put it in, played, and was soon dazzled by the graphics. This new masterpeice can be funny, jumpy, and suspensful all at the same time. Nintendo could have just as easily made this a big gore fest, scary for the little kids, and the basic formula of putting Luigi and a cast of Mario characters into a Resident Evil game. But that's what amazes me is that they didn't and they had to pre-check it so it wasn't frightening. It's like making pufferfish to eat. You know what parts to keep in but you put just a little bit of the poison to tingle the taste buds. (Yes, they do that in Japan by skilled chefs). The only thing I found scary was that a first gen GameCube game can look so good. I only had a beef about it being too short and the extra Hidden Mansion too easy.
