Default Super Mario 3D Land Review (3DS)

Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: Nintendo
For: 3DS
Genre: Platformer
Features: Streetpass

Story:
! SPOILER ALERT !

Bowser kidnapped Princess Peach yet again. -_- Dang, Peach loves to get kidnapped. Yeah, the story is the same as always, but personally I couldn't care less about the story. I mean, who plays a Mario game for the story? LOL. BEST STORY EVER overall, no just playing. .


Gameplay:
This Ma-rio game is a 3D platformer with a 2D twist. The game is linear that you go all the way to the flagpole without trying hard to find it. You explore the worlds to see if there are any star medals. Star medals let you unlock even more levels, and there are three star medals in each of the levels. There is sixteen worlds in the whole game, 8 normal, and 8 special. The cool thing is that you can also play as Luigi after you beat the first special world. Most of the levels are easy, but they are still LOTS of fun. I also like the power-ups like the Tanooki suit, Boomerang suit, Fire Flower, and a Tanooki suit that can turn into a stone Mario, and there are much MORE suits. The game-play overall is a bit easy, but overall tons of fun!


Graphics:
The graphics are beautiful! They look like Mario Bros. 3 mixed with Mario Galaxy, which is awesome! The 3D enhances the gameplay by helping you know were you should land while jumping, plus the 3D also looks very good. The graphics in this game are nice and top-notch.


Sound:
The music here is nice with some really cool remixes from past Mario games. The music is very cheerful, and can be epic like when you fight Bowser or
! SPOILER ALERT !
Dry Bowser.

I liked the music overall, but this isn't the best Mario soundtrack in my opinion.


Final Verdict:
The game overall is very good, and definitely worth a purchase. The only complaint I could find in this game is that it's a bit easy. Super Mario 3D Land will make you want to play it everyday, it's just that awesome! This game also comes with a 3DS update that improves the friend list by adding a join game button.

+ Lots of Levels
+ Fun Gameplay
+ Good Replay Value
- A Bit Easy

Overall: 9.5/10

Nice review. I've been hearing good things about this game... may have to get it. Then again, I never expected it to be bad.

Nope I finished all 16 worlds, then again my favorite genre is platformers. But I do have to say some levels can be a challenge, and it can be harder if you try to find all the star medels.

it kinda annoys me when you have to play the stages cause you have to get the gold flags with both mario and luigi and you also have to get the star coins although it kinda sucks the stages don't have enough content in them so :/
