There's no question – if you own a 3DS, this is the best game on the platform, and instantly worthy of a purchase. It's one of the best portable platformers I've ever played (and I've had my fair share), and an almost shockingly good Mario title on any platform.
It's not just the killer application the 3DS was waiting for, it's also one of the most enjoyables platformers in years, filled with creative ideas and offering a perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
Mario has some restrictions in Super Mario 3D Land, which is why the game comes closer to the original platformers that are all about challenge and focused platform levels. It all works out, thanks to the surprise at the end of the game and the wealth of challenges available here.
Inventive, beautiful and dangerously addictive, Super Mario 3D Land is the 3DS defining game, capitalising on the system's strengths and value of portability, while recalling the best qualities of both 2D and 3D iterations of the franchise. Not to be missed.
Super Mario 3D Land is indeed a wonderful debut on Nintendo 3DS. The 3D effect is fine and helpful because of some camera issues. Mario fans will love this new experience because of the very cool retro elements.
The excellent platforming and the 3D images ensure a creative mixture between the old and new Mario. Maybe a less agile Mario than we're used to, but that has it's charm in some ways. Thanks to the extremely varied environments and the succesful usage of 3D, Super Mario 3D Land is by far the best Mario game for the 3DS.
This game is basically a miniature version Super Mario Galaxy 2 and is also basically Super Mario Bros. 3D. It includes the standard mario design of mario shrinking as he gets hit and requring a super mushroom to become "Super" Mario again. Unlike the other 3D games, this game has a more mario-ish vibe to it and includes regular mario enemies from super mario bros and New Super Mario bros while adding new things that were never seen in the previous games before.
Super Mario 3D Land is without a doubt one of the highlights of the 3DS, but nowadays there isn't really much of a reason to go back to it. My main complaints with this game are it's lack of memorability and the fact that it's a little slow at times. It also doesn't help that this 3D platformer is on the 3DS, making it a little more difficult to play. I still really like this game and think it's a great experience, but compared to other 3D Mario games it falls a little short.
Il peggiore gioco in stile platform di Super Mario che abbia mai giocato. La Grafica è ok, ma il gioco è tremendamente facile e privo di carattere. Non avrei mai creduto di giocare a un gioco di Mario così noioso e dimenticabile, che delusione!
This is my least favorite Mario Game. I am not biased against the series, I am a huge Mario fan, but this game mostly just annoyed me by only being able to move in 8 directions. I also wasn't a fan a being forced to use 3d. I personally think 3d World is better in pretty much every way, so if you have a WiiU, get that. If you don't, I'd recommend New Super Mario Bros.
