Graphics: 9 out of 10

This game has excellent graphics that are good for showing off the high capabilities of the new Gamecube.  The terrific effects and details never ceise to amaze me.  If you are interested in seeing how advanced the Gamecube is, this is definitly the game to rent.

Music/Sound: 9 out of 10
I love the main theme music of this game.  Luigi even whistles along with the tune when he's scared.  The only drawback is the fact that even though the main tune is great, that's all the music there really is.  The game lacks variety in it's music, but the music and sound effects that exists in it is great.

Frustration Level: 7.5 out of 10
This game is semi-frustrating.  There are many easy parts, however, quite a few of the parts can be terribly annoying when you're not sure of what to do next.  Also, the few REALLY  challenging parts can get on ones nerves.

Difficulty Level: 7 out of 10
Not too hard of a game, the typical difficulty to expect in a game.  This game is extremely short, so some people think that because they can beat it sooner, that it's easy.  This is really untrue.  Even though this game can be beated quickly, it has some challenging points.

Amount of Fun:  10 out of 10
One of the best games in terms of fun level.  This game is a great way to start off Gamecubes many years of videogames.  When yo are playing this game, you may find yourself shaking or being nervous about whats going to come next.  It's so fun that you might even get as far into the game as to jump when a ghost comes up behind you (if that even sounds like fun).  But anyway, this game is really fun.

Replayability: 7.5 out of 10  
This game is relitively short and changes ever so slightly every time you play.  As a result, it's pretty fun to play again and again.  If you get bored of playing the same thing again and again, you can simply not play for a while so you'll forget some of the major events the next time you play.

Overall:  8.5 out of 10
This terrific game is a great way to start off Gamecube and give people a good first impression of the system.  Nintendo has once again pulled it off and created yet another excellent game.  Plus, this is Luigi's first starring game (Mario is Missing doesn't count), so you won't want to miss this important event.  I highly recommend this game, and this game is definitly worth buying.
