Mario and Luigis inside story for the nintendo ds is a great role playing game. The series started on the super nintendo with super mario rpg and then on the gameboy advance with super mario saga. It is a great mario rpg, not as good as the paper mario games but still amazing. BUY IT NOW Read More

This RPG series has always had unique gameplay. The length is also really impressive as you'll get dozens of hours out of it. You constantly visit new locations which keeps the whole game interesting. It's cool to see the abilities advance of your characters too as they become more powerful. I'd recommend it! Read More

Review Although he's caused Mario and his friends all kinds of headaches, King Bowser has slowly evolved into one of the most lovable characters in the Nintendo universe. He's lived in Mario's shadow for most of his career but he's finally getting some much deserved time in the spotlight in Bowser's Inside Story, a wacky RPG that centers on the self-centered and willfully stupid monarch...The beauty of Bowser is that he is not burdened with an excessive backstory nor is there an ill-conceived attempt to give him a complex personality. Bowser is a struggling 'everyman' who only wants to get some respect in a frustrating world. Easily tricked and abused by his enemies, it's hard not to feel sorry for him...Your mission in Bowser's Inside Story is to help him stop failing at life, if only by a little bit. In battle you'll help Bowser maul his foes with mighty punches, scorching firebreath, and swarms of his tiny minions. When he fails, Bowser is often helpless until Mario & Luigi-accidentally devoured by Bowser earlier in the game-can do something to help him. They might play a mini-game to give Bowser a burst of strength or use an adrenaline rush to grow him into a lumbering giant...Battle and mini-games in Bowser's Inside Story are all about grueling precision, in stark contrast to the cartoony graphics and goofy plot. Even common enemies demand careful counter-attacking and blocking. Most activities boil down to your ability to press exactly the right button at exactly the right time. These challenges are rewarding if simple. Other bits that involve frenzied button-mashing or stylus-swiping are far less memorable.

Players Must Make Well-Timed Button Presses to Enhance Their Performance during battles and challenges. In some battles, Bowser grows so large that players must turn their Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi? system sideways, blow into the microphone or tap on the touch screen with the stylus to keep up with the action.
