Review: Super Mario 3D Land for 3DS


Super Mario 3D Land is a fantastic game that shows exactly how 3D effects should be used on the 3DS. Its a shame its so short.

Eight different worlds, plus eight secret worlds. You can eventually play as Luigi. There are mushroom, fire flower, Tanooki suit, boomerang, propeller boxes and statue Tanooki suits. If you die five times in a level, you get an Invincibility Leaf to...

Quite short, compared to other Mario games. Have to find lots of coins to unlock certain levels and Secret World levels

Super Mario 3D Land Review


Now this is how you make a 3DS game. After a ten-month period wherein the best title on the new system was 13 years old, little old Mario has come along and whipped the handheld into shape. It doesn't innovate the Mario formula as much as it remixes...

Successfully mashes up 3D gameplay and design sensibility of the Galaxy series with old school Mario, perfect challenge level, incredibly well designed stages, overall polished experience

Not much

Super Mario 3D Land


Note - Due to vision issues, I won't be able to review the 3D capabilities of 3DS games.

3D Land delivers an experience that will satisfy long-time fans of the franchise while also making it accessible enough for newcomers to enjoy. The core game is incredibly fun, and gives you more variety than many Mario games. The scaling-down of the...

Super Mario 3D Land


Super Mario 3D Land is my first 3DS title. This game inspired me to buy Nintendo's struggling handheld, and as I expected, it's a worthy killer app. Super Mario Land 3D is not perfect, but it is without question an essential purchase for any 3DS owner,...

Super Mario 3D Land review [3DS]


The appearance of a new Mario game on any format is a big deal, but when it's the first title in the franchise to appear on a new system, the expectations are huge. Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy – all...

Super Mario 3D Land Review


There's usually always two things you can rely on Mario games for. The first being they're going to be great, since Nintendo doesn't stuff around with Mario's platforming outings. The second thing is that they're usually right there on launch day,...

Super Mario 3D Land


Mario goes handheld and 3D to mixed results.

There are few opportunities to push in 3D Land, to stretch out and find the edge of the world, since it’s always in front of you. When you do find that edge, it’s all too common to just fall off, because there’s so little space to run. There’s fun...

Review: Super Mario 3D Land (3DS)


Finally, a game for the Nintendo 3DS that makes you actually want to turn on 3D.

Lots of game to explore; brilliant 3D implementation; challenging without being punishing

Fixed camera angles make some jumps difficult; 3D can be tiring on the eyes during long play sessions

Super Mario 3D Land Review


Legitimizing 3D, one Goomba at a time.

Super Mario 3D Land represents the first 3DS title to fully make use of the system’s capabilities. With an expertly balanced difficulty progression, dazzling level design and masterful Power-Ups, this is the ideal 3DS experience. Most of the first...

Super Mario 3D Land


A Mario game perfectly suited for portables.

Creativity in spades ; Excellent mix of 2D/3D Mario sensibilities ; More content than you can shake a stick at ; Perfect for portables

Propeller power-up ; Repetitive boss battles

Yes. Going all the way back to Super Mario World, there's always been at least 3 save files.
