Review: Luigi's Mansion 2
Michael Plant is chief editor and writer of gaming ezine and blog GamesCatalyst.com, as well as editor of 'The Independent'’s games review printed in the Saturday supplement 'Information'. Established in February 2011, Games Catalyst endeavours to bring its unique brand of fact and satire to the videogaming community and, in tandem with 'The Independent', hopefully turn a few non-believers on to gaming while we’re at it.

The Gamecube incarnation of Luigi's Mansion saw our
hero nervously stalking in the shadows of a haunted house, hunting spooks with
an overpowered vacuum cleaner.
In the intervening years, the game's
supernatural location has been kept from dereliction, utilised in various
Nintendo titles, but only now has Luigi returned, hoover in hand, ready to
puzzle his way through the cobwebs and restore the corrupted Dark Moon to
Evershade Valley. His character remains compelling as ever, cowering in his
dungarees, and the game lives up to high expectations, the 3DS making a perfect
spiritual home for a spot of ghost busting.
