Despite egregious issues with its eShop, Nintendo managed to successfully squeak out its final contribution to the self-proclaimed Year of Luigi just on-schedule, and Dr. Luigi performs precisely as advertised: literally a direct revisit of its namesake in HD and with a few additional game modes. Main among these is Operation L, which has you dealing with L-shaped combinations of two capsules instead of the usual one. This adds a fun wrinkle to a proven formula, but short of this there’s really nothing new to speak of, which makes a recommendation tricky considering the wide availability of an otherwise mostly identical game across several systems and with any number of other variations. Dr. Luigi does exactly what you’d expect and does it well, and if you lack the means to play a connect-four puzzle game this one will certainly fill the void well, but nothing really sets it apart as a must-buy.
