Storyline

The brothers travel back in time to retrieve Princess Peach, only to come face to face with baby versions of themselves, the princess and Bowser. Teaming up with their young selves will soon send Mario and Luigi on a quest of lunatic proportions as players must control both the adult AND baby versions of the Mushroom Kingdom heroes. Players use the top screen to study the land, keep track of the pair of brothers not under their control or maximize combo moves in battle. Written by MarioFan

The Brothers are finally back!
29 December 2005 | by Tuco_88See all my reviews

Although I never played Mario and Luigi, I know that it was released mainly out of necessity because there were no more Mario side-scrollers to port to the GBA. Its sequel, Partners in Time, also delivers the first new Mario adventure on the DS. The eponymous partners are actually AMrio and Luigi paired with their younger selves by means of E. Gadd's time travel device. Although the action commands prevent battle from being boring, they also seem a little unfair at times, with just average enemies being a one-hit kill if you don't dodge properly, rather than just shaving off a few points like they did in Papar MArio 1 and 2. Another problem I have is that you don't spend much time wandering around towns talking to the inhabitants, as that was one of the most fun parts of Paper Mario. Nevertheless, the story is funny and the gameplay is fun, so if you're a Paper Mariio fan, or a Mario and Luigi fan, this is definitely a must buy.
