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

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
This game is not overrated, Call of Duty is
Most of this list is true. And I do agree that PiT and SPM are perfect games and are underrated. But I also think that Bowsers inside story deserves all that love. I had a lot of fun playing it. But that doesn't mean you have to like it. It means you have to understand the fact that just because you don't like it doesn't mean that it is overrated, it means other people like it and you don't.
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.
How Many Times Are You Guys Gonna Complain About Peach? - VideoGamefan5
Bowser is much better than the babies.
I love both of these games, PiT is better.
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.
The minigames are fun...ALL OF THEM. Problem?
As tedious as they are I don't find a problem with these
I loved these minigames - Pikachu7586
They are awesome. Not bad at all
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!
What voice acting? - Pikachu7586
There is no voice acting. - DCfnaf
Really?! YOU DON'T LIKE A VIDEO GAME BECAUSE OF WHICHEVER CONSOLE IT'S ON?! - The Ultimate Daredevil, the former hater of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story/the man who originally created this list and regrets making this list just because he doesn't love it as much/find it as strong as its predecessors
*cough In the final and Tough Guy Alert *cough.
The music is one of the best parts. The final battle music is such a good beat!
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
Ooo fox say hello
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
They're fine. - DCfnaf
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
Nope it made the Mario and Luigi series better
Actually, it was a big improvement for the series - Pikachu7586
In your dreams in my opinon! - HeavyDonkeyKong
That's True She Doesn't Fight Back In This Game. But She Does Fight Back In Some Mario Games.
When did this even matter? Oh yeah, that's right, IT NEVER HAS! - Pikachu7586
She does in the begginning! - HeavyDonkeyKong
She fought back in the first three paper mario games! And those 3 are masterpieces! SCREW THIS GAME! I'M GOING TO PLAY SUPER PAPER MARIO! ROT IN THE UNDERWHERE TO ANYONE WHO HATES THIS GAME!
This joke is so funny that my ghost is actually typing right now. Honestly, I played partners in time as a kid and boy, it was hard. still is now. Later, I played bowser inside story the same way I played partners in time and guess what? I actually enjoyed it and finished it! Now I have finished every mario and luigi games and now that I am better at mario and luigi games I returned to partners in time and it was still hard! I forgot to say that I was always playing the european version of the game which is made easier. It was hard and still is, I can imagine the nightmare that is playing the american version. I just can't understand people that says that partners in time is easier than bowser inside story
Partners in time is harder in my opinion! But I love partners in time too! - HeavyDonkeyKong
No It's Not. It's Actually Kinda Easy.
With the Challenge Medal equipped during the Energy Hold segment, yes - xandermartin98
Problem number one: it's a time limit boss. I have never found one actually good time limit boss due to their reliance on stalling you out for an instant game over.
Problem number two: you can only use Bowser's fire breath against it. No variance in attacks here. I guess Bowser hasn't learned to punch downward.
Problem number three: said fire breath attack requires the DS's awful microphone. May whatever deity you believe in have mercy on your soul if you have asthma.
Problem number four: you have surprisingly little room for error. Sure, there's some added chances for hits toward the end, but you need to constantly get Excellents when the train isn't in the mechanized mountain. Anything less and you'd might as well restart to save you the time.
Problem number five: when it is in said mountain, if that mountain isn't on fire, the train heals itself. That means that you can't punch the mountain without risking losing.
Problem number six: in order to ...more
The remake made it much easier, tapping the screen at the right time activates Bowser's fireball.
The only part of the game that was frustrating because of the bad fire controls.
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.
Why does this even matter? - Pikachu7586
How the hell is this a problem. Personally, it being long is a good thing, considering how much fun this game is
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.
Actually it's 1/5 of 100 hours long, and it's an amazing game if not a perfect game. - Pikachu7586
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.
A one hour game is the worst!
It's because he is the protagonist in this game.
Duh, he's the protagonist! - HeavyDonkeyKong
That's because he's a main protagonist in this game dumb@$$ - Pikachu7586
Duh! He is the protagonist!
I was not talking to you, Pikachu7566. I was talking to the guy that called Super Mario RPG "just a Final Fantasy game with Mario characters". I understand that I am a rabid fan. - The Ultimate Daredevil aka Kieran Glen Harris Stark
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
Lol WAAT?! This is such a stupid reason!
I actually never hated the graphics of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (at least since 2015). I just find them to be very run-of-the-mill compared to its predecessors' graphics. One major reason why is because it does not remind me of the Mall of America or areas with deserts. While the graphics of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story are very standard, I feel like Nintendo at least put effort into the backgrounds.
They are the same as partners in time! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Well... That's True They Actually Are The Same.
I guess you've been playing too much Bubsy 3D - Pikachu7586
HOW?! Fortnite ripped of this instead of the other way round.
You've got to be kidding me. Fortnite was made AFTER this game came out!
Mario and Luigi bowsers inside sorty is a ripoff of fortnite because it has gunx
Does this affect the game, NO!
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
"The Giant" is also a good one too.
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
The stereotype of toads not looking identical.
This game is not racist at all!
What stereotypes? - Pikachu7586
The minigame was hard but it doesn't make the game bad.
Its just to hard
Beat it first try. heck even the tower of Yikk was harder (ps: beat it first try too.)
But really. More bowser please
This is not a hard area ata all
-1st special move
-your argument and any other argument you'll ever have is invalid. I rest my case
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!
She Is So Useless.
Remember Super Mario RPG and Super Paper Mario? Probably not because you were too busy hating a game for a stupid reasons. - Pikachu7586
At least she's wearing something!
Why are we complaining about a poor design choice?
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
Dk isn't in any m&l games I ever heard of so...shut up
Well you are blind because someone else said the same thing already!
It's in partners in time too. - HeavyDonkeyKong
It's the 3rd area in the game of course it's not gonna be as exciting as areas like Bowser's Castle. But why hate a game because of 1 area? - Pikachu7586
The bosses are way too easy
Lol what?! They are actually very very difficult
Not All Of The Bosses In This Game Are Easy You Know. But Half Of Them Are.
There are WAY too many bosses in the M&L series in my opinion!
Not as bland as thus list it seems like! You're hating ona game for all of the wrong reasons it seems like! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Still less bland than this list. Dear God where do I begin with this list? - Pikachu7586
Shut Up! You're Bland!
Um same with you
Well, she is! Do you got any proof that she isn't? - HeavyDonkeyKong
Well they aren't lying. - Pikachu7586
Well it's the same design of the previous games and you don't hate them for that reason do you? - Pikachu7586
What bugs are you talking about? You mean like the bug bosses Scutlet, Wiggler, and Durmite, or techinical bugs? If you mean the latter then there are few and far between. - Pikachu7586
When bowser has to drink from the god forsaken fountain, you get to do a very tedious section of the game.
