    " An excellent spin on classic mario action."

    Super Mario : 3D Land is another one of Nintendo's classic Mario action reboots. Is this a bad thing? Not at all. Though there may be a repetitive and just plain simple storyline, the game-play more than makes up for... Read Full Review

    A bit too easy

    I'm noticing a pattern here with Nintendo games now. Of the last three Nintendo games that I've bought (Link Between Worlds, Pokemon X and Super Mario 3D Land) all of them have been extremely fun and fantastically desig... Read Full Review

    Mario really gets innovative this time around

    This game will blow your mind. It will be amazing to see that such a big world is in such a small console. Super Mario 3D Land is the closest you will get to an open-world portable Mario game. You can't compare it to Ga... Read Full Review

    Am I late to the 3D Mario review party?

    I try to beat all of the games I review before I review them, but usually that just means getting passed the storyline and perhaps uncovering a few secrets or at least researching the rest. This game is no exception, as ... Read Full Review

    Plumbing is where the Money's at

    Talking about the past is a hit or miss. I'd rather avoid it all together. I was on a date last night and she wanted to know about everything. Does it matter? I'm here in front of you babe. What you see is what you get.M... Read Full Review

    Nintendo's latest innovative achievement? Don't bet on it. But there is much in the fun factor.

    Seeing a slew of other releases at the time, it's not hard to overlook this game. Its concept is simple and its plot – to be honest – generic, with all the characters taking over their reprising roles and it ... Read Full Review

    Ever wondered what a 2D mario would be like as a 3D platformer?

    After Super Mario Galaxy 2's masterful achievement, I was hoping for a bit more. Super Mario 3D Land feels a bit like a digression. But there's no denying it's a excellent game anyway. It's just disappointing. Here's the... Read Full Review
