Super Mario 3D Land

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Always bet on Mario. It's a given that Nintendo rarely fails when dealing with its mustachioed mascot, and there's no denying that when a Nintendo system is in trouble, everybody's favorite plumber can bail it out. The 3DS is in need of some competitive games with Christmas around the corner, and once again Nintendo has gone to its pipe-delving hero, cap in hand, looking for help.

Test Super Mario 3D Land

Generation NT
22 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Ce Super Mario 3D Land s'exprime totalement une fois les premiers niveaux dépassés. Nintendo livre à ses joueurs une belle surprise et une autre expérience de jeu que celle offerte par son "introduction". L'enthousiasme à parcourir ce nouveau titre Mario est toujours récurrent, d'une part puisqu'il livre un vrai souffle de bonne humeur et d'autre part parce que le confort de la prise en main s'affiche tout au long de cette aventure.
  • Pros: Ambiance toujours gaie et joyeuse, Le level design, L'usage de la 3D, Prise en main confortable, Huit niveaux supplémentaires déterminants
  • Cons: Huit premiers niveaux trop simples

Super Mario 3D Land Review

3 January 2012
  • Excerpt: For all the controversial moves made by Nintendo over the past decade, one thing has never been more apparent: the Big N maintains a commitment to fun. While many developers are focused on implementing the most impressive visuals into their games (and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that), Nintendo remains fixated on the most important reason why we game in the first place — captivating gameplay.
  • Pros: Great level design, Perfect use of 3D tech, Unique and original gameplay
  • Cons: Uninspired soundtrack, Too easy for too long

Review - Super Mario 3D Land

Game.ie
29 December 2011
  • Summary: Despite sporting one of the most ungainly titles for a game in recent years, Super Mario 3D Land may just be the first title for Nintendo’s somewhat flagging 3DS that makes the system worth buying. Following a troubled time for the device since its launch, mainly down to the fact that there were so few games worth buying, it’s great to see that Nintendo’s much loved first party development teams are starting to churn out the good stuff once again.

Super Mario 3D Land (3DS)

  • Excerpt: Before I get started I want to show my appreciation to the one that opened my eyes to the world of gaming, the man that inspires all plumbers to be all that they can be, that shows that a Gomba can’t hold him back, that makes jean over alls a fashion statement. If you haven’t figured it out yet; I’m praising the short and stubby plumber himself, MARIO! Now, you think I’m over idolizing this moustached mascot? Think about it.
  • Pros: Now this may not be one of Nintendo’s remakes but it definitely has familiar elements that keeps fans wanting more. Since the Super Leaves are cast throughout the kingdom it brings back the much loved Tanooki suit, and Mario isn’t the only one wearing it. You see that Bowser and his Gomba henchmen strut their stuff with Tanooki tails, this was a nice added touch that Nintendo added. In Mario fashion, one suit doesn’t get the princess in the end so Nintendo added a cou...

  • Excerpt: Super Mario Bros . isn’t about a pudgy Italian and his never-ending quest to foil a dragon’s attempt to abduct blonde royalty. The games aren’t about turtles, fanciful worlds, or unusually catchy tunes. Those things are the icing on a delicious foundational cake of physics. In side-scrolling incarnations, Mario games are about the crazy joy of momentum, the simple pleasure of controlling an object as it leaps and rushes through space.

  • Excerpt: Super Mario 3D Land wastes a bit of time up front with some levels that are a little too basic, but once it gets going, it reveals some terrific moments that make the 3DS make sense.

Review: Super Mario 3D Land Plays It a Little Too Safe to Truly Excel
