Pure fun...Love it...I thought I'd be late to the party(since I just purchased a 3DS last month) but this game still has a great following and some pretty cool courses and features!...The game itself is quite fun (it's Mario cart right) but the best part is it allows a friend who doesn't own a copy to play online with you!!

Compete with up to eight racers for fierce competition with your friends or other players around the world. The race is on.
Not bad...Spot on....Overall, this version for the 3DS will likely be overshadowed by competitive crowds for the Wii U version with its upgraded visuals and more precise controls but it is a worthy addition to the series and a fantastic implementation on a handheld platform....There are enough modes and things to experiment with between Smash Run, Classic, and All Star mode on top of the Stadium games, power and move customizations, Mii fighter creation suite and hundreds upon hundreds of trophies to keep a person occupied for a long, long time.

Mario fun...It's fun...As for as the actual "3D" effect, I usually keep it turned down, as I don't find the gimmick worth the eyestrain, and aside from one special room in each world, it's not really used by the game....Super Mario 3D Land, maybe aside from Zelda: OoT or Star Fox 64 (both of which are remakes, anyway), is the best original game on the 3DS, hands-down, and it combines everything gamers adore from Super Mario Bros 1 and 3, and Super Mario 64.

Good pace...Great buy...Very popular between teenagers....The main game itself has also been updated and overall streamlined, doing away with HMs and making traversing from place to place much less of a chore, making it so there's never a dull moment in the Alola region.

Dive right back into the Mushroom Kingdom for another classic gameplay experience with everyone's favorite characters,
Mario and Luigi. Of course, Princess Peach has been kidnapped yet again by the malevolent Bowser, but the

You can still count on the action-packed fun that the Super Mario bros. franchise always brings to the table, but this time, with added golden opportunities like turning enemies into golden versions of themselves and a gold flower that gives Mario the ability to turn almost anything in his path into gold. This game keeps a running tally of every gold coin you've collected across all the levels so you can monitor your progress. Team up with a friend who can play as Luigi in the new two-player mode that allows you to use wireless Internet to tackle the adventure.

Great fun...Great buy...So I already own this on the wii u and I normally don't rebuy games that are the same for another system but this game is a must have for the 3ds!...It is still fun to play the Nintendo levels that come with the game but once you beat those there is little use besides designing levels that no one will ever get to play.

Great fun...Its fine...I only recommend this game if you have a friend with a copy who you can communicate with through another means outside of the bizarre fake communication built into the 3DS game interface....You can play locally with friends (easiest mode because you can actually talk to your friends), online, or solo, which is the most challenging because you have to control all three heroes by yourself.
