What Gamespot Users have to say about Super Mario 3D Land

  • User Rating 7.5

    Mario's latest debut has enough charm, innovation and depth to make it a welcome addition to the franchise.

    No one can deny the Nintendo 3DS's poor software line-up. With little to no first party titles released upon launch and an indefinite date given for Mario and friends to make their debut, the latest N...

    Mix of Super Mario Land 3 for SNES and Super Mario 64 conjoined into one!

    Rated on February 17, 2012 by pianistkaida

    I heard several word of mouth as well as written reviews on this game. It got a lot of positive, and so I decided to play it. The game is a LOT better than I thought it was. I thought it was purely 2d...

    A Strong Case For The 3DS, But Not For 3D

    Rated on February 19, 2012 by fmobliv06

    Super Mario 3D Land is the game that should have launched alongside the 3DS. Unlike the rest of the games on the platform, it is of indisputably high quality and makes good use of the system's 3D capa...

    Game is right inline with other Mario titles

    Rated on March 06, 2012 by Otto6327

    Game is similar to most Mario games that have been released to date. Just enough new to keep you playing without losing the classic feeling that made you pick it up in the first place. 3D is not a gam...

    If you don´t have any choice on what you´re going to buy to your 3DS, this is one of the best (for all ages)

    As any Mario game, the princess Peach is kidnapped... AGAIN! In the beginning, Mario and some Toads were walking in the Mushroom Kingdom, when suddenly appeared a flying letter. You open it, and you s...

    Super Mario 3D Land for the 3DS amounts to another expectedly enjoyable offering from Nintendo.

    Rated on May 06, 2012 by malachi_27

    Although Nintendo's 3DS lineup at launch is nothing to gawk over (which isn't necessarily uncommon for gamers when new consoles make their retail debuts) the much-anticipated Super Mario 3D Land was w...

    If you're looking for the perfect 3D, 3DS game, this is it!

    Rated on March 29, 2012 by Sniper-Gamer

    Super Mario 3D Land is the first Mario game that was "made from scratch for a portable system." When Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president, said these words it got me thinking. And I reali...

    A fun and charming platformer, but can be tedious to complete.

    Rated on April 10, 2012 by ILuvAnju

    Pros - The 3D effect is very well implemented. There is a great use of obstacles to take advantage of this 3D effect. For example, at one part, there is a thick spear that shoots out towards you. ...

    Super Mario 3D Land is a very impressive game from start to the end especially the special game you unlock in the end.

    Rated on April 14, 2012 by spydayx1

    Combine New Super Mario Bros. with Super Mario Galaxy, and you get the best portable Mario title to date.

    Rated on April 22, 2012 by gamefreak197

    Mario never ceases to impress when it comes to providing us with quality platformers. This time around Mario enters into the true third dimension in order to save his beloved princess (again....). Wha...
