Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions
The original Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga was a fantastic adventure, and this remake has not harmed it. You'll find the same fun and challenging gameplay accompanied by the same witty dialogue that first appeared on the Game Boy Advance in 2003, but now everything looks and sounds much better. The new content, Bowser's Minions, is not good enough to warrant a purchase by itself; however, since it's completely optional, it's also not a reason to stay away.
Nintendo's updated take on Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is a worthy remake of the series' initial entry, bringing with it a fresh coat of paint and some fun extras.
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is still the best game in the series, and a must-have for 3DS owners that haven't played it before. Charming, great value and tons of fun.

My time with Superstar Saga has been a joy – filled with hearty laughs and exciting boss encounters. Even though I can't say whether it's a remake worth revisiting to those who finished the original back on the GBA, I can say with confidence that those who missed it the first time around are in certainly in for a good time.
Beautiful game design, great mechanics, a variety of gameplay situations, sparkling humor of varying degrees - almost everything is perfect. But being a remake of a game, which was released 14 years ago, this project does not offer anything new to the old fans. Bowser's Minions turned out very funny, but not impressive in terms of gameplay. But for all newcomers and today's fans of the series this game can be safely recommended.

Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions is still a fantastic RPG fourteen years later. The Bowser's Minions side story is an enjoyable, if occasionally tedious, diversion. But the main quest is better than ever with the same addictive combat, laugh-out-loud story, and a few modern polishes to the gameplay.
Simply put, Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions is a fantastic RPG for the 3DS.
A great remake for one of the most beloved Game Boy Advance games.

Thank goodness for "kiddie" games. The original Mario & Luigi game returns with a fresh coat of paint and an extra mode that celebrates Bowser's charming and adorable lackeys. Exploration could be better and the Bowser's Minions mode could be a bit more fleshed out. Its highly amusing dialogue, however, combined with its charming visuals, music and characters make this the perfect tonic after a long day on the job. Jump into it if you're itching for a Mario-themed RPG.
Although Bowser's Minions falls short of adding value to the package, Superstar Saga is still an excellent Mario RPG and one that holds up very well in today's 3DS catalog.
