While this along with Mario & Luigi Paper Jam are not the best Mario & Luigi games in the franchise by many fans tho in my opinion I think they are just as good as the others and are the best in their own ways. That said, though dealing with the babies obnoxious crying (Baby Peach and Baby Luigi being the worst offenders by this) where it gets annoying, some of the maps are more linear than the previous M&L game, no bros. attacks and you have to use bros. items to perform them instead and have to buy them from the shop, and the babies can only use the hammers instead of the adults are some of the flaws of this game. However the game has it good qualities too, such as the gameplay and story and characters being comical and speaking of the story, it’s actually dark because of the antagonists called the Shroobs invading the Mushroom Kingdom in the past and doing dark things to the Toads and others, E Gadd having a bigger support role in the story and talking suitcase named Stuffwell being less obnoxious and less annoying than Starlow (the one from M&L BiS and the later games tho she is also useful and redeemable) as well as proving gadgets and sync well with E. Gadd at one point. It is one of the Mario & Luigi games along with BiS and PJ that I enjoyed the most and one of my fav Mario games overall. If y’all want to get an RPG game just for nostalgia or for some time travel wackiness and get dark, this game is just for you.
