Despite my love for the Mario & Luigi series of RPGs, I had only recently managed to finally beat the very first entry: Superstar Saga for the GBA; a game that came out 12 years ago (look I’m slow, alright). I honestly consider it the weakest game in the series; something I know a lot of people will disagree with me on, but I won’t deny the charm it had. It had a great script, an interesting new world, fun combat and, of course, good music.
The GBA may not be able to play orchestral-levels of music but damn it, it tried and in many cases, it could pull off a perfect track, such as today’s pick. It’s intense, intimidating, and it makes you want to tap your toes even when you’re staring down a beast twice your size.
