Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD is a welcome return to an old haunt

Luigi's Mansion 2 HD is another strong Nintendo remaster which doesn't mess around with the original too much, but delivers enough improvements (particularly in terms of visual detail) to make it a worthwhile release. The controls still aren't perfect and Luigi's Mansion 3 is the better game but the sheer charm crammed into every crevice means it's still absolutely worth a look.

  • A notable visual upgrade compared to the 3DS version
  • Luigi's animations (and humming) make him an endearing protagonist
  • A decent length campaign, with plenty of replay value
  • ScareScraper mode is a nice change of pace
  • Controls are still a bit fiddly
  • Lack of 3DS depth can make it hard to aim at floating objects
