Super Mario 3D Land Review

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Tue Aug 07, 2012 11:17 pm

Ah, Super Mario 3D Land. I played it really often at it's release on my 3DS. Problem was it was very short so it's appeal didn't last too long to me.

Basically it was a fun game. Every level was cleverly designed. Some gave you a lot of exploration for trying to get all of those star coins among other things. It also had a great intro making you think the game would be fantastic. The first level despite being totally easy was actually pretty well thought out and fun. So it really pulls you into the game.

It had new and old power-ups. With the return of thr Tanooki Suit, I was thrilled. I love the tanooki suit and it adds so much to the game for me. Hammer bro. suit was okay, though I didn't particularly enjoy it. Fire Flower was more fun to use in this one for reasons I can't really explain. =/

Controls were good and makes very good use of the Slide Pad. I had no problem with them while playing.

For flaws in the game, it was way too short. They added in an entire extra world and star coins attempting to make it long, butbit didn't work. It's mostly because the game was so easy you had no problems completing the levels which made them short. There are way too many 1-ups. So many it's like they're trying to make it so you can't die.

Overall, a pretty good game. Not the best Mario's had, but still very fun despite some levels not being so good.

Yeah 3d land was so easy but some of the star coins were hard to get.

Razor reviews? How long did it take you to come up with that?

Very nice but short review, Zero. Short but sweet~

I agree with the most part, and I also might have a reason for the fire flower thing, it's the first time the fire flower has been able to be used in 3D to my knowledge... with that much freedom anyway...

I wont go too much into this game though, as I do plan to review it myself at some point probably!

Nice review and I too have to agree with your score. It's a pretty decent game and at least stands out and is memorable as a 3DS Mario title. XD

But does it stand out as a Mario title on the whole?

No... not so much. In my opinion anyway~

Thanks for compliments, but I don't like the way I did this review, so I might redo it...

Does that mean you're planning on replaying the game?

^ Perhaps I will, that would make sense actually.

Yeah, maybe take notes while you're playing, that's what I'm doing. :3

I actually like the review. If you're gonna redo it, I also suggest making some pros and cons and experiences of the game, which is something I didn't do for my TTYD review.
