Con­sid­er­ing Nin­tendo planned to use 3D for its Game­cube, it should come as no sur­prise to learn that con­sole’s launch game looks very good on the 3DS. It’s as good as you re­mem­ber it, too – ex­plor­ing a creepy man­sion in search of Mario and us­ing a souped-up hoover to suck up the many ghosts you en­counter still feels great. The bosses re­main in­ven­tive and fun, and they make good use of the sys­tem’s 3D ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Ghost­bust­ing isn’t quite as easy as it was on the Game­cube, due to the 3DS’S weak ana­logue nub, but the mo­tion con­trols do work with some prac­tice. Grezzo’s im­prove­ments are many, but they’re sub­tle ad­di­tions rather than ex­trav­a­gant changes. Nev­er­the­less, Nin­tendo’s 17-year-old game still feels sur­pris­ingly fresh.
