    Solid Mario Gameplay

    ith most of the Mario titles in the past decade, I've always been disappointed to smash my way through them in under a week without having faced any real difficulty at any point in the game. Mario 3D Land turns this on its head at the last minute. Upon defeating Bowser at the end of your standard round of 8 worlds, the game unlocks a new character and a new set of 8 more worlds that are all exceptionally challenging. The second set of worlds gets *NINTENDO HARD* at some points, and even the most experienced player will find themselves burning through dozens of lives on the same stage. The main difference is that there's no real punishment for failure because extra lives are near-unlimited and ridiculously easy to come by. Despite that, at the end of the day the sudden uptick in difficulty is just one of the many ways that Mario 3D Land honors and makes references to its roots. It borrows powerups, stages, tropes, enemies, and music from all throughout the series and ultimately makes this into one that was meant to appeal to the most longtime of fans.

    This Super Mario land 3D is like super Mario world 3D on the Wii U. It is simply now on the go in the new Nintendo 2DS and is a game that’s best on the go! Whether your on the bus or outside is best to play this game outside. You get into it and you feel great. The game has worlds and so many power ups that it gets your day on to a good start. 2 ds plays all Mario 3ds games and this game simply excels on the new 2ds.

    I have only got to the second world, but so far its fun. I am playing it on the 2DS and I haven't had any real issues with judging jumping distances, but the view is pretty much fixed (unlike mario 64). you do have the ability to pan slightly left and right, but it doesn't really help that much. The game feels like a cross between a 2D mario platformer and a 3D mario platformer like Mario 64. But overall, its a great game so far!

    Very Solid 3DS Game

    Though this game is perhaps limited due to its linearity, as compared to "sand-box" Mario games ala Super Mario Odyssey, the game still has a lot of charm and is a joy to play. As is the case with any Mario game, there is much charm, humor, and genuine fun to be had with this title. Definitely worth purchasing especially since it is a Nintendo Selects title now.

    Mario 3d land is one of those games that re dines mario type games. This is not a traditional side platformer style mario. Instead this is a fully 3d platform game just like mario 64 was on the N64. There are some great level design and its easy for beginner gamers. Hours upon hours of entertainment.

    Great 3d Mario game

    While the main campaign is a bit too short, this is a great Mario game for beginners and younger players. The difficulty does pick up at the end, but more for optional areas. Short, well-designed levels make this a great pick up and play portable game.

    What more needs to be said that hasn't already? This is a classic on the 3ds. Mario in a 3d environment with a stage selection that works like the older titles. Its fun, fast and great for quick games on the go. Definitely a must-have.

    I came to this game kinda late since I played 3d World on Wiiu. This is pretty fun and makes itself it's own distinct experience. Controls are tight and the 3d depth works well here. Some games don't. Definitely worth it at $20.

    Purchased when it first came out and loved it. Best it and sold it. Just repurchased it for my step-son and at $19.99 it’s a amazing game. The 3 is actually really cool as well.

    This is one of my all time favorite Mario games. It does a great job of incorporating the best of what people love of both 3D and 2D Marios into an amazing game. Great graphics and ton of fun. A must own for any one with a 3DS.

    This is a great Mario game. This is better than the other Super Mario game available on the 3DS in my opinion. The gameplay isn't 3D in the same way Mario 64 was 3D, but it is an interesting combination of 3D/2D platforming.

    The game has many possibilities within it. My son likes to make levels that arent impossible, but very difficult. You can share your layouts online so others can try them.

    This game is great for all ages. For children it is not that difficult, but difficult enough to keep them entertained. For adults, it brings back memories of all the Mario games from childhood.

    It took me almost 6 years to finally purchase this game and I wish I would have done it sooner. You're not gonna find many games this good at $20.

    The best Mario on a handheld

    The game is just plain fun. I grew up on NES, so I have a soft spot for sidescrollers, but Mario and the 3DS hardware really shines here.
