          Super Mario 3D Land is like all of the great Mario games but, with a twist. Imagine, Mario 64 combined with any of the classic Mario games, there you have this game! It plays like most Mario games but, you can go frontward and backward. You go and get mushrooms and smash Goombas like any other Mario title. It sure is addicting!

          The story line is basically the same as all the other Mario games. Princess Peach gets kidnapped by Bowser, you have to save her by going through various worlds, defeating Bowser’s minions, and eventually rescuing the princess. This time if you beat the main story you unlock bonus 8 worlds where you have to save Luigi. The multiplayer is basically sharing best times on levels over street pass.

          Overall I think this game is one of the best that the 3DS has to offer. It has great game play and a compelling story. Also it has great hidden items and extra levels to keep you coming back after you beat the story. Really, the only problem I have with this game is that they could have easily put in a multiplayer vs mode or something but, it is a wonderful game nothing less.

Review: 9.5/10
