Summary: A bit slow at the beginning, but that was great since I was new with the game. I'm also glad it starts slow at first because of mario's new moves that I had to master. Also, great boss battle, special worlds were really hard.
Summary: I picked this game up because it is rated one of the best games on the 3DS but for some reason it didn't really resonate with me. Don't get me wrong, I love classic Nintendo games and am coming directly off Zelda: Link Between Worlds (which I HIGHLY recommend and love with the 3D turned up). But the 3D here makes for a really frustrating experience - for some reason keeping track of my jumps in this three dimensional plane is a real pain in the rear.

Excerpt: FAULTY CARD, OPENED IT FROM WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A BRAND NEW PACKAGING AND THE GAME CARD HAD BITES ON IT??? WHAT IS THIS? I DONT PAY $40+ FOR A "USED GAME". NOT ONLY DO I HAVE A DISAPPOINTED BIRTHDAY BOY NOW I HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE STORE AND EITHER EXCHANGE IT FOR ANOTHER GAME OR JUST GET STORE CREDIT??!!! FORGET THAT I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER GAME OR TOY FROM THIS OVER PRICED CHEAP STORE AGAIN.
Another great Mario platformer.Great level designs.

Summary: Super Mario 3D Land mixes the feel and gameplay of the old style 2D Super Mario games with 3D gameplay/style visuals.I found it to be enjoyable and I like how it uses the faster style gameplay of the old 2D Super Mario platformer games but mixes it with exploration that's more reminiscent of the 3D Mario games.To beat the game you'll need to do a bit of exploration and find a minimum of 100 star coins besides just making it to the end of each level.
