Super Mario 3D Land (3DS) Review
Who wants to upgrade their childhood?
Super Mario 3D Land is here and holy crap! It is a mix of a few Mario games, the main ones at least, and it is still it's own game at the end of the level. It is if the original Super Mario Bros, Super Mario 3, Mario 64 & Super Mario Galaxy all had one baby, this would be it. Nintendo really keep their promise on this one, the 3D is really good. It does give the levels depth, but at other times, the 3D can be REALLY good. Like pop out the screen good. The gameplay really reminded me of other 3D Mario games like Galaxy & 64. There are some levels that are more side-scroller-ish and play out like a 2D side scrolling Mario game and instead of being like Mario 64 and getting gold coins at the end of a level, this game uses the flagpole at the end of the level so it's easier. All these are good things. The music is my favourite part about this, the music is either redone tunes we've all heard before or some still the same. Some levels go from really easy to really challenging but it's not too challenging and you'll fly through the game in a few hours. There is a street pass feature which does show replayability, but alot of the levels show alot of replayability on it's own, what with 3 gold coins to collect in every level. Some are easy to find & get & others are too hard to figure out where they're hiding.
Now back to the 3D, even without the 3D this is an excellent Mario game but since it has the 3D it makes it all better and again, it mainly gives the levels depth but the 3D can be really good at times. Pop out the screen good. That being said, if you own a 3DS then you own this game. If you own a 3DS and don't own this game then go out and buy it right now! This is a great Mario game and this is the reason to buy a 3DS and this game. I highly recommend Super Mario 3D Land.
