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

  • Rating:9

    Bigger and better than its 3DS predecessor, Super Mario 3D World is fun all around

    Super Mario 3D Land was a major success for Nintendo and the 3DS. Re-imagining 2D Mario platforming in a 3D environment and taking as much chances to push the envelope with their handheld hardware turned out to be a good... Read Full Review

    The perfect mix of platformer and 3D environment

    I'm safe to say Super Mario 3D World was the Mario game I've been waiting for since Super Mario 64. This new addition to the Mario series is as great as my inner child wanted it to be, being, in my opinion, the perfect m... Read Full Review

    Awesome game that I didn't expect it to be...

    Anyone remember seeing E3 and Nintendo presented their next Mario game for the Wii U. I remember how disappointed I was, how that first trailer was, to me, uninteresting. It's until I saw the last trailer before this ga... Read Full Review

    Combines aspects of classic 2D and 3D Mario

    Shortly after starting the game, you are introduced to the new cat power-up which features prominently throughout the first part of the game. When you do have the cat power-up, you do feel overpowered. As a cat, you run... Read Full Review

    The best Mario game since Galaxy 2. Need I say more?

    Apparently Nintendo read my review for New Super Mario Bros. U (hey, a guy can dream, can't he?), because they went on a whole different route in terms of story and characters you can play as. Thankfully, it paid off. Su... Read Full Review

    Solid, but it's time for a change.

    I've been a Mario fan since the late 80's and haven't played a single one I didn't enjoy (specifically the 3D games) and while I enjoyed this game too, I found myself suffering a little Mario fatigue........I have to a... Read Full Review

    HD Mario in all its glory

    The Mario series has recently got repetitive and unimaginative. I was worried this would be the point where it stopped being the perfect example of game design it once was, but Super Mario 3D World proved me wrong. Super... Read Full Review

    A game that I hope persuades many people to buy a Wii U because it is simply the best

    This is a fantastic game and EVERY Wii U owner should buy it right now.The story is very different from usual Mario games. Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Blue Toad (who must have bribed Peach to keep him and throw out yellow ... Read Full Review

    One of the most creative, most memorable Mario game you will ever play.

    I know what everyone thought when they first saw this title during Nintendo Direct, “oh boy another mediocre, dilapidated Mario game that will be identical to past 2d Mario games, even though it was announced as a... Read Full Review

    beautiful, but too cute for a Mario game

    This is the closest thing to Mario 64 but it's not as great. It's a mix of Mario 64, Mario World and Mario Bros 1. Although it has the same design as Mario World(SNES), it does not have the same originality, nor does it ... Read Full Review
