Dr. Mario gets a taste of its own medicine!
Review written by
June 7th, 2014
Dr. Luigi is essentially at its core, Dr. Mario but with Luigi. While it does introduce new elements, it still falls short of being the same thing rehashed into a $15.00 eShop game. Now this doesn't mean it's exactly bad, in fact it's fun!
Dr. Luigi is divided up into different sections, Retro Remedy, Online Battle, Virus Buster, and Operation L. All of these are unique in there own ways and can be pretty fun to mess around with!
First we have Retro Remedy, which by the name means you'll be playing classic Dr. Mario. This mode is really here just for people who may dislike the new way to play.
Speaking of the new way to play Operation L is now introduced to the series. Operation L is essentially 2 pills packaged in an L-shape, which surprisingly makes the game easier.
Next is Virus Buster where you have essentially the same game, but it is now controlled on the gamepad's touch screen. You can move pills to line up with viruses by dragging the stylus across the gamepad. The mode gives a use for the gamepad, but it is fairly forgettable.
Lastly we have Online Battle. Online Battle is exactly what it sounds like. You connect with other people over the Internet and battle them. It is a nice feature especially for people who can't play locally.
With all these features I feel one mechanic is still missing. The story mode. Their is no story mode prominent here, unlike in Dr. Mario 64. I would've liked to see some sort of story of how Luigi became the doctor, or what happened to Mario.
With all that said Dr. Luigi is still a great game and I definitely recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the Dr. Mario series.
