Mario jumps into 3D
Those who love Mario games will find everything they want and much more when they play Super Mario 3D Land. The game reinvents the platforming adventure of the series and brings it to the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS.
Not only does this mean you'll get a 3D Mario game that plays just like a 2D Mario game, but you'll also experience a level of distance, depth, and speed that is truly exhilarating, making running, jumping, and stomping on your enemies across all the fabulous levels of the game seem that much more fun.
As with all the games developed specifically for the Nintendo 3DS system, you can also enjoy it in 2D. However, to better judge depths and distances across various environments, you may want to indulge yourself in the full 3D effect. Not only does this element offer another reason to buy Super Mario 3D Land, it also helps more accurately judge things like how far it is to the next platform or question block!
There are plenty of features to enjoy, with outfits including the fan-favourite Tanooki Suit, which allows you to attack your enemies in a unique way or just float gently down from greater heights. This kind of accessible yet challenging gameplay will go down well with those who buy or download Super Mario 3D Land and want familiar gameplay, as well as those looking for a new adventure.
So head for the end-of-level flagpole and make full use of Mario's signature moves, new skills, and ability to find hidden shortcut and secrets as you take on new enemies like tall stacks of Goombas, ink-spitting Piranha Plants, and Goombas with tails!
Features of the game:
- New and familiar abilities add unique gameplay strategies to the adventure. Mario can perform a rolling somersault attack or run fast with a dash move. Or, as Tanooki Mario, he can use his tail to hover or perform floating jumps and attacks.
- The circle pad gives players complete control to confidently move Mario through fun and challenging environments.
- New enemies include Goombas with tails, tall stacks of Goombas, and a Piranha Plant that spits ink to obscure the player's view.

Graphically it's very close or on par with the Mario Galaxy titles. Colourful, bright and full of life. Which is what you would expect. I was very impressed when playing.
The game starts off very simple, it eases you in over the 8 basic worlds of levels, slowly increasing the difficulty as you progress. This is great for people new to the series, as they can become accustomed to the controls. In terms of gameplay, the levels are mostly obstacle course levels, with a mix of 3D roaming and 2D scrolling gameplay, which require you to reach the flag pole at the end. There are plenty of powerups to aid you against enemies and tricky jumps. The tanooki has made a triumphant return, and they allow you to test it out almost straight away. Harder challenges are unlocked later on, but I'll let you find that out if you get the game!
For a bit of extra challenge, 3 collectable star coins are scattered around the levels, and these are required at times to unlock later levels. The coins are easy to collect for the the first few worlds, but get harder to obtain later on, and are hidden well in some places.
Hardcore Mario fans will probably breeze through the first 8 worlds with very little difficulty, but as I mentioned earlier, challenges do pop up later on if you get that far.
The soundtrack is a nice collection of tunes, some original, and some are re used from the Galaxy games. I have no issue with this.
I don't think I need to convince Mario fans to buy this game, but rather those who are perhaps new to the series and are looking for a worthy, fun 3DS title suitable for everyone.
It truly is a triple A 3DS title, and look forward to more from Nintendo in the future.
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!
You have different power ups to aid Mario in his quest to once again, save Peach. These include a Tanooki Suit, Boomerang Flower and more!
The levels are quite big and you can wander off the trail to see what might be hiding in a corner(ranging from star medals to an extra life) so you can take your time going through each level. Yes, you do have a timer but you do come across the odd time extender(100 extra seconds) so you have more than enough time to check out the level as much as you like.
The music is typical Mario, flawless and perfect, very happy and uplifting.
I will play this time and time again, it's a real treat. Plus this game has been designed with the 3D to really help in levels, sometimes it's the difference between making a jump, and falling down a hole!
If you are looking for the perfect 3DS game, this is it! Well done, Nintendo!

You should know the storyline off by heart. Plumber with a mustache needs to save a princess from a giant evil turtle thing.
The storyline is not important (though it is pretty funny).
This is all about gameplay, and this title really delivers.
I've been playing this for a few hours today and am now up to World Five.
My God, this is THE game to spend your hours on.
I never thought the 3DS was disappointing, but this really makes up for the lack of decent games being released.
There are 8 worlds, but once you've completed all those, you can play the same 8 in an alternative 'Special' mode, I hear.
Note, this doesn't mean 'Special' in terms of... 'Special olympics' or ... 'Special needs'.
Special, in Nintendo language, means 'Harder'.
So far though, I've been having lots and lots of fun. It draws you in with some easy levels, and then they get harder.
I have over 30 lives because it's easy to pick more up, but I have died quite a few times too.
You really have to give it to the makers of this game, because they know how to develop something special.
This is, as you will most likely know, a platform game.
There have been quite a few 'Mario land' style games since this legend entered gaming, yet this feels so fresh and exciting.
I don't want to give much away, because you have to experience it for yourself.
If you've played the 2D SNES Mario games, you'll know the basics.
You go from one side to another and jump on a flagpole for no apparant reason.
This game has an edge though. It still consists of the same, but it's not just side to side. It's a cross between Super Mario and Mario 64/Galaxy.Read more ›

Simply a must own for anyone with a 3DS. This game has seen me through countless train journeys to and from work, my only regret is I've now completely 100% finished the game.Published 2 days ago by Matthew B.
It's a good game and you probably buy it.
Peach gets kidnapped (yet again!) and Mario has to save her. Luigi comes in after beating the game.
Really fun game, I would say this is better than super mario brothers 2. Loads of levels and the 3D is amazing. 10/10Published 9 days ago by James Blake
A very good game, with some interesting and challenging developments. However for experienced players each world has very few levels with in it unlike super Mario Bros, but some... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Film Fan
