samskivert: Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga – GBA (4)

11 December 2003

Hallelujah! Someone has finally made an RPG that I have enjoyed. To be honest, this was at least one-third old-school Mario Brothers platformer, but it was definitely an RPG. They said “Level up!” a good fifty or a hundred times. This game is like the Bugs Bunny cartoons of old, it appears to be for kids but actually demonstrates a sophisticated and clever sense of humor. In many ways this game was way funnier than any episode of Bugs Bunny I’ve ever seen. Between this and Advance Wars, I’m having more fun on my GBA lately than I’ve had on any platform ever.
