    A great game, lacking replay

    This is an excellent game, typical Nintendo creativity all over the place. 3D is directly utilized into the gameplay messing with perspective and what not.The only issue I have is it lacks replay value or variety. Mario ... Read Full Review

    Because you gotta have the plumber wherever you may go.

    You can always count on Mario delivering the goods, at least it seems. Nintendo has been one disgusting company for quite a while now, releasing obnoxious games in a landslide, but Mario is Mario, you can't miss it. Lack... Read Full Review

    The FIRST original 3D Mario Game masterpiece that I've enjoyed playing!

    It has actually been some time since I've played and beaten this game, but I've been so consumed with trying to play and beat EVERYTHING that "Super Smash Bros. 4" for the Nintendo 3DS and all it has to offer, that I did... Read Full Review

    " 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
