Mario and Luigi - Partners in Time by BrendanCorris Mario and Luigi - Partners in Time by BrendanCorris
Here's my tribute to Mario & Luigi - Partners in Time. I'm pretty pleased with how this one came out. The only thing that kind of bugs me is all the work I did on the Shroob army in the background mostly ended up being blocked by Princess Shroob. Oh well, I'll soon post process step pictures on my blogger account.
I wanted to put E. Gadd in this picture because he's such a cool looking character but there wasn't really any place for him.
Here we have Mario and Luigi backed by their infantile selves taking on the ghoulish Shroobs and their lovely, curvy queen, Princess Shroob. This game may not be as awesome as Superstar Saga, but it's still a freaking awesome game with an incredebly fun and interactive battle system. It's major flaws in my mind are it's lack of an overworld, making the game seem very short with little exploring to be done (I still think we should have at least been allowed to play all the locations in present day as well). It also introduces far less new interesting places and characters than it's prequel. With the exception of the Shroobs, most new characters aren't terribly interesting (Toadburt and Kylie are just a couple of this game's unoriginal character concepts, and that stupid talking suitcase takes the cake for worst character ever). The game is also too damn easy. Even the final battles are incredebly easy as long as you keep your bros. items in a steady flow. The time theory in the game also makes no sense at all. I know the game is a comedy, but how the hell can the Shroobs take over the past Mushroom Kingdom and have no effect on the present. Ah, whatever. All bitching aside, this is an awesome game definately worth checking out.

You have the most honest opinion about Partners in time. And I love you for that! Not only did you Capture the magic that is the Mario & Luigi series. But you have also made Princess Shroom the most Beautiful and scary alien that I've ever witness in all my years as a Nintendo gamer. I didn't start playing any Nintendo Products until I brought my first GameBoy and later on GameBoy Advance SP. it was one of my first introduction to the Mario & Luigi RPGs. (The first one for the GameBoy Advance, later two on the DS, and the recent one on the 3DS. But it's preowned and I'm waiting until I get my sister to buy me the 3DS game on Amazon prime.) Five Stars for Visionary, Impact, Technique, and Originality for the win! You deserve a sticker. 😎

I love the series too. Play Superstar Saga if you ever get the chance. It's on Virtual Console these days, and I feel it's the best in the series.

I don't really think so. I never finished Bowser's Inside Story, and I didn't think it had enough interesting new characters to do a picture for. I've never played Dream Team, as I don't own a 3DS. How is the 4th one? I haven't heard any reviews of it.

4th is completely different than GBA and DS version.  Well almost.  Some move are same.  Some battle move are same.  But when you are in Luigi's dream in battle move, it different.

Yeah.  But some boss in Mario alone, it little bit hard, but you will make it to beat it.  If you cant beat it, then you can use easy mode to more attack and defense.

BrendanCorris Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013
Nah, I never finished that one, it lost my interest. While I thought Bowser's dialogue was hilarious in the game, the actual gameplay was too scattered and senseless to me to keep me playing. It seems they are trying to direct the series away from its RPG base and turn it into another gimmicky series that just uses a bunch of random mini games, mostly involving special features the console has.

yeah and the final boss only has 3,000 hp
and shooting star can take him out in 3or2 tries
trust me i beat that boss up to 12 times
but you have to agree the special moves are kinda
funny and so are the enimies but yea the story doesnt make much sense seeing how they dont explain what happened to the suitcase guy how bowsers body is even like that or how even some of the characters make any
sense,

The Princess is so deliciously curvy. To be honest I believe she deserved more English dialogue, a real name like Shroobella, and that her elder sister was unneeded.

Oh my this very well done and I like the curvy Princess Shroob. However I think both her and the Elder Princess Shroob were the hardest final bosses of the Mario and Luigi series.

I have faced both, Junker wasn't that bad, Cackletta was hard but I was also younger when I faced her for the first time, while it wasn't long ago I played PiT for the first time.

This looks absolutely Epic to the Max degree of Epicness possible! Princess Shroob WAS very underrated as a villain. She was cool and I agree, he was kinda hot (or had the potential to be~) Your Curvey Princess Shroob is Amazing and very intimidating, and The Shroob army in the back is amazing. So much detail <3
Story wise, yeah the Time thing didn't add up. I suppose maybe the Shroobs taking over the past didn't effect the future because Marios and Luigis would end up defeating them and thus not effect the future? but then wouldn't they know about this already and be ale to prepare for it? I'll stop before I short circuit my brain XD
Amazing work, sir. YOu have once again outdone yourself!

They missed a shitload of great oportunities with this game, If it had a overworld, wouldn't it be nice If it had the same Light World/ Dark World concept from A Link to the Past? Well....at least Bowser's Inside Story had a overworld....but It was too big ( probably because of Bowser ) and empty, so far Superstar Saga is the best in the series.
Also, the shroobs' actions didn't had any effect in the future because the bros defeated them.
Speaking of which....are you going to do a tribute to Bowser's Inside Story?
