My favourite game on the 3DS to date!,
This review is from: Super Mario 3D Land (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
This game is a great mix of new and old mario. The new 3D adds a new dimension to playing, you have to look quite hard to find all the extra coins and lives. But they've also bought in few things I loved from the original games, such as tanooki Mario from Mario Bros 3 on the NES. If you struggle on a level for too long, a white tanooki is issued, helping you to complete the level with a bit more ease.
The graphics of the game are stunning, as is the game play itself. Each level is different and uses different things from previous games. The flipping panels are back, thwomps are there with tanooki tails and also giant bowser with all his annoying fireballs.
Mario fans will love the game for bringing back some of the bits that made previous mario games so great and new players will love that you can simply pick up and play the game. I'd certainly say this is mario at his best on the 3DS!
