Top 10 Reasons Why Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time Is Better Than Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

People are crazy preferring M&L: BIS over M&L: PIT. I will show you the true proof why M&L: PIT is God compared to M&L: BIS, which is just overrated and a horrible sequel.

The negatives I have toward M&L: PIT are that it's too hard at times, Princess Peach is so annoying because of her squeaky, girlish voice, her pink dress (I hate dresses in general) and personality (which is prissy, mostly negative, crappy, short-tempered, infantile, unkind, defenseless which is inappropriate for her tall & healthy physique).

M&L: PIT is the Mario & Luigi RPG ever, not M&L:BIS!

M&L: SS deserves a favorable B+. It is a joy to play such a funny game with a nice soundtrack/visuals.

M&L: PIT deserves a stellar A rating.

M&L: BIS deserves an unfavorable D-. It can have many good aspects in it, but M&L: BIS was done wrong with a disgraceful soundtrack.

M&L: DT deserves a bad D rating.
The Top Ten
1 You play as 4 playable characters instead of 3, and the Baby Mario bros. beat adult Bowser

I disagree with that point, since what I like about multiple characters, is that they give us more variety to the gameplay. Bowser in BIS is a good example. He is different enough to give variety to the game yet similar enough to not feel out of place. Meanwhile the babies don't change enough from Mario and Luigi to give true variety. They can go to small places I guess?

Both the baby characters and Bowser are good in their own way and bring on fun gameplay. None is better than the other. Well ok, Bowser is more interesting, but still

2 Its soundtrack is flawless and much more creative

Both are equally flawless and creative in my opinion!

I like Partners in Time, but it has honestly m'y least favorite soundtrack in Mario and Luigi ( didn't play papier jam yet) while BIS has m'y favorite, with Dream Team being a ridiculously close second.

Agreed. A lot more good tracks than BiS

3 Better graphics/engine/visuals

Honestly, I agree with this. The pixels are sharper, and the coloration is better. For the original at least. The remake is much better.

4 You time travel!

Meh time travelling is one of the most overused and boring plot themes ever in my opinion. Although this game does portray it better than most other media...

Well, it is a cool concept with some good execution. Not as cool as going inside Bowser though.

Does that make Sonic 06 good? NO!

5 The levels are much more interesting and graphically perfect.

Now, the levels on paper sure are more interesting in Partners in Time. It's a shame though they're really linear and don't feel as immersive because of the bland map on the top screen.

Bowser's inside story had slightly more advanced graphics but whatever!

Mario and Luigi partners in time is a great game.

6 It has a more serious, mature soundtrack/content

Here is a problem I have with Partners in Time: it is super dark, arguably darker than Super Papier Mario, but where Super Paper uses atmosphere and music to make it sure that you feel the gravity of the situation.

Mature? Mario doesn't need to be mature!

Even though PiT is the darkest mario game to date and I applaud it for that, I still felt BiS was more colourful and immersive.

7 It does not overdose on King Bowser

What do you mean Bowser is overdosed in BIS?

Bowser was the protagonist of bis...

8 Not likely to ever be remade (thus a rarity)

That's the saddest part. I played all of the other M&L games on the 3DS with their remakes, and the graphics amde them feel so alive and immersive. Partners in Time though is stuck with old school graphics. Not that simple graphics are bad, the enviroments and story just don't feel as intense or interesting as a result

It's a rare piece of Mario content that has far as we know will never be replicated unlike superstar saga and bowser's inside story.

Is that a good thing?

Make it, nintendo

9 Shroob is better than Dark Bowser

I agree on that a lot. Dark Bowser is just the Dark Star having replicated Bowser's DNA, and since when haven't we already seen a star of power in a mario game, whereas the shroobs are an alien race who know nothing but destruction and feel more like a threat as a result.

10 Stronger humor

Both games have Fawful and Bowser, so this is hard to say. In any case, Partners in Time is still an excellent game, but it's probably my least favorite of the four games so far. Still, it's a great game!

I never particularly cared for the humour for either game, as I play the games for the story and setting. However, the baby characters kind of annoyed me in PiT so...

I don't really feel it.

11 It's not too popular

It's a shame seeing as how great it is. But BiS is still overall a bit better honestly
