While this game isn't worth going out and getting a 3DS for it, it was an enjoyable enough experience. Graphics wise, the levels look phenomenal and the 3D effect is used pretty well. Stage design can range from uninspired to crafty. Gameplay is standard Mario fare, jump on the enemies heads, defeat Bowser, and repeat. Most of the normal stages are quite easy, but when you unlock the special stages the difficulty ramps up, and if it wasn't for the special stages it would probably only take an experienced gamer a few hours tops to beat the game.

If you are a massive fan of Mario games this one is worth checking out, others may find the low difficulty a tad annoying.

   Back in the days of the original Gameboy, the Super Mario Lands were hailed for being relatively different from the usual Mario experience. Sure you were still stomping and such, but you faced wildly different enemies and got some very different power ups. Super Mario 3D Land is not a sequel to those games in anyway. But like the Super Mario Land games, it takes a different approach to the Mario formula while keeping in sync with what has made it successful. Here the change is mostly …
