Top 10 Reasons Why Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Is Awful

Just when you thought that Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story was perfect...

Well, it sucks and I hate everything about it. Sorry. Mario & Luigi:: Partners in Time is a much better game for many reasons. (Almost) everything about this game is better than that in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.

The Top TenXW

1Princess Peach is annoying

She leaves her hair down, gets pissed, is being useless, seriously lacking grace, having that annoying "HELP ME! Mario! " voice, having let herself die in one scene and appeared in this game instead of Princess Daisy and Rosalina. what?!

Who cares? Bowser and Fawful are the stars, not her! - HeavyDonkeyKong

That's a stupid reason to hate a flawless game.

2How overrated it is

Top Ten Highest-Rated Mario RPG Games of All Time

Top 1: Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (96% like this overrated game).

Top 2: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (94% like this baffling game).

Top 3: Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars (92% like this perfect game).

Top 4: Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (89% like this overrated, unfair game).

Top 5: Paper Mario (87% like this game).

Top 6: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (82% like this game).

Top 7: Super Paper Mario (78% like this underrated masterpiece).

Top 8: Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (63% like this unbelievably underrated gem).

Top 9: Paper Mario: Sticker Star (57% like this letdown).

This might not be true. It is my opinion overall, but Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is too overrated.

Those review scores are wrong. dream team is lower than that and paper Mario is higher than the thousand year door. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Overrated my @$$, this game gets all the love it deserves! Hell I'd go as far to say it's better than Super Mario 64. (Also by the way Super Mario 64 is a great game overall though) - Pikachu7586

Why does this game get more acclaim than Superstar Saga and Partners in Time?! I will always love these worthy predecessors. M&L: BiS is a sequel that needed to be changed.

It isn't overrated at all! It is the best game in the Mario franchise!

Thank you. This list is utter trash. This game is my childhood and all of these Mario and Luigi Partners In Time Fans make crap lists like this. - DCfnaf

3The Bowser minigames

As tedious as they are I don't find a problem with these

The minigames are fun...ALL OF THEM. Problem?

4The voice acting

A game with bad voice acting...*cough* sonic 06 *cough*

Bad voice acting? then turn off the volume and stop having a pointless argument about an extra feature that DOESN'T AFFECT THE GAME AT ALL!

Peaches voice sound sjust like that in partners in time in my opinion! Sheesh! I mean, COME ON! - HeavyDonkeyKong

There is no voice acting. - DCfnaf

5The music

Superstar Saga has 8/10 good music. I love its 32-bit music.

Partners in Time has 10+/10 good music. It's so creative and inspiring!

Bowser's Inside Story has 3/10 good music. It's baffling and sounds like an unfinished music test.

Dream Team has 3/10 good music. It is the worst Mario RPG by far.

What, this game's music is amazing, just listen to In the Final and try to say it's bad

Listen to In the Final and then tell me this game has a bad soundtrack I DARE you - Pikachu7586

The music is awesome. - DCfnaf

6The beginning and ending

That Toad who ran away from school (and Mrs. Ingletoad! What, Nintendo?! ) needs to get strangled by Knuckles the Echidna very badly. And the ending... Bowser decides to kidnap Princess Peach again, and Princess Peach does NOTHING! I hope this game dies!

How can you judge a game just by 2 points in the plot

Well those are just 2 plot points and the ending is a great one - Pikachu7586

7Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is way better than this

The baby bros have no special moves except enhanced jump + hammer abilities. They don't speak much unlike Bowser who by the way has hilarious dialogue. Bowser on the other hand has special moves, punch, flame, and the final KO punch which is the most satisfying final attack by far. I own both games and BIS has a better plot and mood while PiT just wasn't as serious which is okay.

Just think! You play as 4 players in M&L: PIT and only 3 in M&L: BIS. Also, Partners in Time is way better in music and visuals, thanks to the Baby Mario Bros. Bowser's Inside story was annoying, hard and overrated.

Okay, Fanboy, you're Game is horrible. - DCfnaf

8It takes so long to complete

This game is 1 eighths of 100 hours long. And it is a horrible game.

I would rather there be a Pac-Man & Jr. Pac-Man: Blinky's Inside Story or Sonic & Blaze: Blinky's Inside Story.

A long game is better because at least it takes you a long time to clear so you can't complain about everything! I personally liked the pacing not to mention I beat it in 9 days to beat the game and get all the sp moves and items. Try to beat that.

How the hell is this a problem. Personally, it being long is a good thing, considering how much fun this game is

It isn't terrible at all!

9Rosalina's disappearance

Rosalina deserves to be in this game, not Princess Peach. I mean it. This game could be much better. But by far, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is the greatest Mario & Luigi RPG of all time. Yeah, I said it.

You can't judge a game because of 1 character missing

Rosalina is in the galaxy games idiot BIS is to me BETTER then galaxy 1 and 2. yep I just said it, come at me scrub.

11Princess Peach doesn't fight back

That's True She Doesn't Fight Back In This Game. But She Does Fight Back In Some Mario Games.

12Bowser is not willing to be the good guy

Bowser IS the bad guy and he always was. he did what he did for himself only fighting Fawful so he could control the Mushroom Kingdom.

This game is not awful.
Super Mario 64 is not underrated. It's considere done of th e best games of all time! - HeavyDonkeyKong

13Its overdosing on King Bowser

It's because he is the protagonist in this game.

15The soundtrack is bad

I would say that the only decent song in this game is the final boss theme.

And do not pan the soundtrack of this game's predecessors, please.

WRONG! The soundtrack is amazing

16Princess Peach's dress

I want to murder Princess Peach and I hate it when the Globins and Toads in this game call her "beautiful", which Rosalina is, but Princess Peach isn't! Somebody murder Princess Peach and Princess Daisy for having such annoying voices these days!

Princess Peach has no reason to be in this game.

At least she's wearing something!

Why are we complaining about a poor design choice?

17Lack of Donkey Kong

Seriously, you're saying that this game sucks because Donkey Kong isn't in it well guess what He wasn't in Superstar Saga or Partners in Time so why would he be in this one - Pikachu7586

You can't say this game sucks because Donkey Kong is not in it.

Wow... What the hell this list is all so bias

19It ruined the Mario & Luigi series

No, it made it ten times better! It showed that Bowser and Mario + luigi
Who are enemies, learn to work as a team to defeat a higher threat

Actually, it was a big improvement for the series - Pikachu7586

Nope it made the Mario and Luigi series better

20It is a ripoff of Final Fantasy

Which would mean that partners in tiem is ALSO a Final Fantasy ripoff because it is the same style! Please leave the fans of these games alone please! - HeavyDonkeyKong

LOL, thumbing down my comment because you can't handle the truth! - HeavyDonkeyKong

So I Guess Metroid Prime Is A Ripoff Of Halo - VideoGamefan5

Well then, I guess that also means that Castlevania Symphony of the Night is a ripoff of the Metoid series - Pikachu7586
