People hated the original Luigi's mansion?

Everyone I knew and I loved it when it came out

It received quite a bit of criticism for being too short, having lackluster gameplay and others even labeled it "not a real Mario game" for some reason.

I can understand reviewing anime-styled games on the site, but Luigi's Mansion seems to be a little out of the realm of stuff for ANN to review. Is there just a dearth of manga/anime for the site to review?

Anyway, I never played the original Luigi's Mansion for GCN. I found the idea of using a vacuum to suck up ghosts stupid as a kid (having not seen Ghost Busters until I was around 13), although I did have a friend that loved the game. I might play this game, but it still doesn't seem particularly interesting to me. Maybe I just have to play it to see the appeal.

Nope, we have plenty. There's a new review up every day.

We review Nintendo mascot stuff because the crossover audience is massive and people who care about anime also seem to really dig Nintendo stuff. It isn't completely irrelevant - these are characters developed by a gigantic Japanese entertainment corporation that have been featured in anime and manga many times. Why restrict ourselves when the audience is so obviously there and the connection between the two is plain as day?

I think purity tests are really silly, but it's not like I don't get your point. However, it's not like we're suddenly reviewing Game of Thrones or something. Then I could see the complaint.

Aren't Mario and company technically anime style in some sense?
