      Fun but limited mobile version of the Wii U game

      Mario Maker 3DS is a great way to play Mario Maker on the go. Designing levels is a snap, and the game controls well when it's time to play your dastardly creations. The biggest disappointment is Nintendo's very poor implementation of how to share levels in the 3DS version of the game. You're stuck with random levels online or sharing levels locally with other 3DS owners. If you are expecting the full Wii U experience in terms of locating and sharing specific levels online, the 3DS version of this game falls short. It's hard to understand why Nintendo would make such a brilliant game and cut down one of the most important parts of the experience - sharing your creations with others. This isn't a complete deal breaker for me, as I own the Wii U version of the game. I knew the limitations before I purchased the 3DS version and just wanted a way to get a quick fix on the go. But it's still disappointing that even after all of these years, Nintendo still can't get the online/social gaming experience right. I do recommend this game, but ONLY IF you know the limitations and don't require a fully-featured online experience.

      I'm really enjoying the 3DS version of Mario Maker. I like that they added in tutorials and tips on how to build out levels and how to use all the different items to make your level stick out. The only feature keeping me from giving the game 5 stars is that they left out the ability to browse and download levels like you can on the Wii U. As someone who doesn't own a Wii U I was bummed about it, but it wasn't a deal breaker. If I had a Wii U I don't think I would have invested in also having a 3DS version of the game. One other gripe more towards Nintendo.....the game has no 3D! What's the point of the 3D part of 3DS if games aren't going to have that feature....

      Fun but requires a lot of practice and patience. If you have played and or own the Wii U version you will be very disappointed. The lack of online sharing is a MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT! Overall a fun game getting to create your own Mario levels but after spending hours of learning and creating what you and your friends feel is a masterpiece really sucks that you can't share it with the world like the Wii U version. Although the level design is only limited by your imagination. I've made some awesome levels including Metroid style levels as well as Castlevania style. Very fun after getting the hang, just a couple things that hold it back from being great.

      Super Mario Maker Kind of...

      This version of the game runs great and allows you to make mostly the same kind of levels you would on the WII U version of the game, but you can 't upload them for others, you can only share them with friends who also have 3ds's and if they're close to you. Also, this version only downloads levelsf rom the WII U version of the game too. The game just seems half baked because of that, it's still fun to make levels but the other half of the fun was having others pay it and rate them. Only recommended to those who don't have a WII U.

      A skimped port of a fantastic game

      Super Mario Maker for the Wii U set a standard for what this game was all about, creating and sharing levels. While all of the creating tools and setups are here 1 for 1, the sharing and playing of levels created by yourself and others is entirely borked. There is no longer any form of a search feature for playing levels by others, not only that, but you also cannot share your created levels online, absolute madness. One upside from this port of the game is that it comes with 100 premade levels, most of which are full featured in comparison to the 60 Wii U premade levels which were short.

      Fun to Build, But Hard To Play

      All of the worlds that you can play that were built by other players seem to be designed to either be almost impossible to beat or have some hidden path that only the creator would know. Other worlds are just walk through worlds that offer no resistance. In addition each world is played for just that world. There is no progression to a meaningful end like a regular mario game. So playing the game is not very fun but its kind of fun to build the worlds that you've always thought should exist in your favorite Mario games.

      this is a good game if you don't already have the wii u version. if you don't then theres really no need to double dip. let me break it down for you. the pros and cons. this version for the 3ds has a more fleshed out single player campaign, on the other hand, it also has very limited online experience for both sharing and playing. if you don't have a wii u, this is definitely a must have 3ds game. if you do have a wii u, don't waste your time, that version is hands down the most definitive version of the same game.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      The game is exactly as you would expect if you played the wii U version. Except for one BIG drawback, Nintendo cut the social features. So no sharing levels you create or playing ones that others have created. That is one of my favorite aspects to the Wii U version. Looking past that though everything else is still there and still a lot of fun to just sit and play with, and you can take it with you. If you don't have a Wii U, I'd pick this one up, but if you're trying to decide between the two go for the Wii U version.
