I did pick up a Nintendo 3DS a few months back when they dropped the price. But I really hadn’t played any of the 3DS titles on it just yet. There really wasn’t anything that great that had been released in my opinion.
However, when Super Mario 3D Land was released I was sure to pick up a copy right away. I mean, it’s Super Mario in 3D after all. Something I’d of given many rupees years ago to of experienced.
The game was great, and really showcases just how amazing 3D gaming on the 3DS can be. Nothing felt forced or gimmicky, it just works. The production values are top notch, like you would expect from a top tier Nintendo title.
At first the whole 3D can be a bit daunting, but just a few minutes in you’re easily immersed Â and can judge jumps like a pro.
The first bBowser fight was really impressive to me. The fire that he throws at you really jumps off the screen and adds an element of hurry to your actions. I felt like a little kid, it was great.
The only drawback is that the game isn’t very challenging to a Mario veteran. However, it’s not so simple as to bore.
An amazing game and a reason in itself to buy a 3DS. Very impressed and looking forward to more A-grade titles.
