Which game do you think is better and why?

#2 Posted by darkspineslayer (19790 posts) -
3D land by miles. Effort was put in.

Super Mario 3D Land >>>>>>> NSMB2.

#4 Posted by MrNuttyboh (137 posts) -

3D Land gives you a whole new experiance, while NSMB2 only rehashes a familar way to play but with a new purpose, if that makes any sense.

The coin collecting aspect is cool, but 3D Land is much more of a game to me.

Super Mario 64 DS.

I'm the minority. I love NSMB2 over 3D land. I love the coin collecting aspect of it and the coin rush actually involves strategy and platforming skills. Alot of people don't care for the coins but for a completionist such as myself spent alot of hours into this game, mainly on coin rush (no cheating glitches involved). 3D Land was great but it felt like a lesser 3D Mario game like Galaxy. I know its intention was to add 3D and 2D elements, it just didn't fit well enough for me. After completing the game, there was no incentive to go back. NSMB2 is more or less a rehash but it is still a solid 2D platformer.

3D Land. I don't really like the NSMB series.

3D Land is wayyyy better. Much more enjoyable of an experience. NSMB2 wasn't bad, but the coin collecting aspect was kinda lame.

3D Land by far and even it isn't that fantastic. Fun, sure, but the Galaxy games far surpass it (I only compare because it's the same team). But 3D Land beats out all three of the NSMB games, the original, the second and the Wii game.

3D Land is a bit better. But I'm not a huge fan of either.

I'd agree with that game if the controls didn't suck.

Super Mario 3D Land it didn't feel like a cash in and it was a mix of old and new Mario in 3D.

#16 Posted by IAmNot_fun (3336 posts) -
Haven't played NSMB2 yet, but I doubt it's better than SM3DL, which is definitely one of the best Mario game ever made
#17 Posted by blueydwlf (385 posts) -

I like both but 3D Land comes out on top. I feel it recaptures some of the magic of Super Mario 64. NSMB 2 does feel like a rehash with less effort put in.

On a side note my 2 favorites games in the series are SMW and SM64 and I feel NSMB U will recapture that SMW vibe so Im very ezcited for it.

Yeah but that's not the point of this thread....

I suggest SM3DL.

Or wait untill they make another one.

Mario Kart 7. It's an option now.

#20 Posted by Pikminmaniac (9057 posts) -

New Super Mario Bros. 2 for sure. It has stronger and more clever level design, a really awesome street pass feature, and much longer lasting appeal. Both are great though.

In that case.

Super Mario 3D Land >>>>>>> NSMB2 > Mario Kart 7.

I refuse to consider SM3DL a good game!

MK7 is so much better than 3D Land. MK7 is awesome :). I need to play it again soon.

Personal preference aside, I don't think it's really debatable which is objectively better.

New super mario bros 2.

#29 Posted by chocolate1325 (32539 posts) -

Maybe you should have waited till Paper Mario came out.

#30 Posted by rubber-chicken (2070 posts) -
Same as what everyone is saying. NSMB2 is great, but ML3D felt more fresh (even though we have seen Mario platformers like it before), it wasn't nearly as exhausted as all these "New" Super Mario Bros games, they've made so many that it's weird to even include "New" in the title anymore.

Haven't got the chance to play NSMB2 yet, but I did enjoyed Super Mario 3D Land.

3d land hands down. I don't get the small group who hates the game.

SM 3D Land is my favorite but they are both good. I'm just not that into collecting coins and having 900 lives lol.

THey didn't bother me much really, though yes the 64 version is better in this regard.

#36 Posted by Litchie (16380 posts) -

3D Land was awesome. NSMB2 looks great, but I don't own the game. They're asking 60 bucks for it, and that's not gonna happen, so I wait for better times.

Well NSMB2 is like an expansion pack, a great expansion to a great game in the first one, but still it's definitely not worth 60 lol.

3d land is also easier to jump in and out of. For a handheld game thats a good quality to have

If you play on the 3ds I'm pretty certain the circle pad functions as a 8 wait joystick which I think might have been the same number of directions as the n64. could be wrong though, having not played one myself

Super Mario 3D land for me.
