Super Mario 3D Land

A sting in the (tanooki) tail?

One of the greatest injustices in modern gaming is 2D Mario's success over 3D Mario. As Mario Galaxy mines the magical depths of the human imagination, it's New Super Mario Bros - safe, reliable New Super Mario Bros - that does the business.... read more

THIRD!

Toying with the idea of buying this bad lad and a 3DS for Xmas.

Something to anti-socially play as I sit amongst my family on Xmas day, rather than engaging in conversation, listening to my uncles "jokes", my nanas "anicdotes", watching the queens speech and wanting to throw myself headfirst out the window and into the cold snow.

Ive been pondering over whether to buy a 3DS for this and Mario Kart but because i would only be playing this at home (i would be too scared to wonder the streets with a brand new 3DS) ive got a feeling i would breeze through it including the hidden worlds in a few hours. As a veteran of Mario 64, Sunshine and the galaxies, a few hours of joy may not be worth £160 :?

Should've been the game the 3DS launched with.

Can't wait to play this, haven't played a Mario game for ages considering this is my first DS and I skipped the Wii

I'm liking the look of this! If they confirm the new Conduit game to be coming soon I may just buy a 3DS.

Sonic Generations?
Pfft!
Had this on preorder longer than I care to recall and I can't wait.
Mario's always bested Sonic - right from the early 90's and it's still doing it now.

Sonic and Mario were NEVER in the same league, and I like Sonic.

I'm looking forward to this, will be busy with Skyward Sword though so it will have to wait until chrimbo. With this, Revelations at the end of January and Luigi's Mansion 2 inbound it's a good time to be a 3DS owner (now there are some words I never thought I'd type).

Loving the melding of New Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Galaxy visual styles. Still a bit perplexed by calling it "3D Land" - the 3D bit I get, before anyone says something stupid, but the land aspect? It isn't worded to riff off of Super Mario Land, I don't think, unless Nintendo are using the name to launch a new series. Now there's an enticing prospect! Bring back real flight!

I find it odd that when the article says half of the game just isn't good enough, the music was bitty and you have to hold the B button throughout the entire game, that this game receives a 9 out of 10. After reading this review, I was half expecting a 7 or even 6 (that is if 5 still means average). It just goes to show kids that you should never judge a game by it's score, always read the review.

Also, there was no mention of the garish colours.

This is a Nintendo title Mike, you have to take the reviews with a pinch of salt (or weed really) unless you're a fan.

Well i wouldn't call many of mario's games challenging.. since they went 3D they have been pretty easy.

Sonic Rush is more challenging than any Mario game i've played lately.

and unfortunately Mario 3D land looks like it's worth buying second hand.. a 4 hour game is pretty short, so that tells me it's probably made for kids in the difficulty department

Mario and Sonic are both good games. I mainly prefer Sonic over Mario b/c of the faster game play and awesome soundtracks. I'm still trying to decide on whether or not to buy a 3DS, video games have really become boring for me, but this Mario is looking pretty damn good. I just hope that they will release a a version of Sonic generations on the 3DS, b/c I really have no play to buy a PS3 or Xbox 360. And then again, there is Halo. :?
