From the very beginning, you know it's great. It starts out with Fat Mario and Gay Luigi approaching the Mushroom Kingdom holding hands. Bowser seems to find it hilarious that the pesky plumbers have entered the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario then proceeds to question his brother's sexual orientation. Afterwards, Luigi quickly changes the subject to his hope the princess made spaghetti because he's not ready to accept his sexual orientation. Mario then notices the princess is nowhere in sight, and spots a letter from Bowser informing the pesky plumbers that he took over the Mushroom Kingdom and the princess is now a permanent guest at one of his seven koopa hotels. Gay Luigi breaks the fourth wall and points at YOU to tell YOU to help him and his brother find the princess. Fat Mario reminds you to "check out the enclosed instruction book." Already, the intro to this game blows your mind with beautiful graphics, wonderful voice acting, and an outstanding story.
Once you get to the gameplay, oh my god, you'll be amazed. Each level involves the Mario Bros shutting the doors to progress through the Koopa hotels and find the princess. It is hours of endless fun. At the end of each hotel, you must fight a Koopaling as a boss fight. The boss battles are incredibly epic and exciting. Once you finish, you are treated to more of those wonderful cutscenes about the adventures of Fat Mario and Gay Luigi.
Will the Mario Bros rescue the princess? Will Gay Luigi finally get his spaghetti? Will the pesky plumbers stop Bowser?
I won't spoil the rest of the game for you, so you can play it and enjoy it for your self.
Sound effects: 10/10
I highly recommend buying Hotel Mario for the Philips CD-I. If you don't have a Philips CD-I, I recommend you get one as soon as possible.
Thank you for reading my review! :D
Special thanks to Philips for making such a wonderful console with outstanding games!
