Super Mario 3D Land: Best game on the Platform!
on July 27, 2013
Super Mario 3D Land is a great game that I highly recommend for gamers old and new. There are 8 worlds packed with fun unique levels, cleverly designed bosses, hundreds of coins, classic enemies from the first era to this era (Some enemies have toonoki tails!), and a big blast of 3D fun. If some levels are too hard, you can get a permanent invincibility power up or visit a toad house for even more powers and practicing. The 3D effect in this game rules (3D can be controlled via the lever on the top screen or by pressing down or up in game) and is a good way to start the fun on the 3ds.
While the game is a great edition to the 3DS there are still some downsides. First off, the game's storyline and partially gameplay is just getting old. On almost every Mario game it is the same: Bowser kidnapping Peach. The 3DS is a big start for a new generation in Nintendo gaming and I personally think Nintendo should start making a different unique storyline for each game (I won't say that about the new Wii U Mario game as you can play as Peach!).
One other downside is the lack of multiplayer. I think if this game was multiplayer, IT WOULD RULE. The camera might struggle a bit if multiplayer existed, but I think it would be a great fresh start for the new 3DS.
Other than those two simple downsides, I highly recommend this game for any gamer. It will glue you to your 3DS and make you a reborn Mario fan if you have given up this great franchise.
