In Luigi's Mansion, Luigi steps out from the shadow of his brother Mario and into the gloomy shadows of a very haunted house in this, his first-ever starring role. When Luigi learns that he's the proud new owner of a creepy old mansion, he's thrilled. Of course, his feelings immediately shift when his brother, the storied Mario, disappears from the house. Now, you'll have to help Luigi track his brother down, making your way through expansive 3D levels. Each stage is packed with ghosts and ghouls to put you on edge; and you'll be armed with a flashlight and a vacuum cleaner to help you capture your foes. Armed with a flashlight and a customized vacuum cleaner, Luigi must rid the mansion of Boos and ghouls — and find his missing brother to boot!
 No Shadows
Shadows are missing, significantly reducing the ambiance of many scenes. See issue 4674
 Sound Problems
Constant slight crackling may occur in the background and when enemies and friends make noises. Use DSP LLE to fix them.
This game doesn't need specific settings to run properly. If you want to get an overview about settings related to performance, please see the performance guide. A full list of config options is available at Template:Config/doc

|3.0-221||Windows 7 X64||Intel Core i7-2620M @ 2.7GHz||Intel HD 3000||Close to perfect. Do not run in DX9 or OpenGL for it will crash or have black-screen. Running at 720P at 30fps consistently. No hitches with game play but use DX11 for Intel HD Graphics. No slowing down during boss fights either. Also running on a laptop.||cohn|
|3.0-235||Windows 7 x64||AMD Phenom II x6 @ 3.2GHz||AMD Radeon HD 5750||Perfect, but normal settings caused weird graphical problems. The screen seemed to have purple EFB problems. Disabling EFB turned them black. Checking "Ignore Format Changes" got rid of them.|
|3.0-151||Windows Vista x86||Intel Pentium P6100 @ 2GHz||Intel HD graphics||Works normally and fully playable but the graphics is all pixelated. To get a rid from the pixels is needed to change the resolution to 1280x720.|

|3.5-392||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i5-3570k||nVidia GeForce 560 Ti||Fullspeed, good sound with LLE, no shadows glitch makes it unplayable for me as it ruins the atmosphere of the game.|
|3.5-402||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 680||Fully Playable without any lags with TXAA on from the nVidia Control Panel and in 1080p!||StarDave|
|4.0||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i5-3570K||nVidia GeForce GTX 560||Works well but shadows are still missing, atmosphere of the game is ruined because of this.|
|4.0.1||Windows 7 X64||Intel i5-3570K @ 4.4GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 460||Game is 100% playable. Shadows do not work in 4.0.1 still. OpenGL backend AA and AF are 100% working. Game runs just fine. Set EFB copies to "Texture" to help with low resolution mirrors and keep texture accuracy to fast to give you a speedup.||Kilobytez95|
