1. The invincible power-up is optional, why complain about it??

2. This game looks great and is exactly what the 3DS needs, I will buy this soon after launch.

In-game intermissions in which Peach almost escapes? Are you sure you didn't pick up Paper Mario by mistake?
In all seriousness, my 3DS really needs a new game, and Super Mario 3D land seems to fit that bill perfectly.

Now literally the only thing standing between me and the decision to buy a 3DS is if Monster Hunter Tri G is going to make it out of Japan.

I dearly hope it does.

This is certainly gonna be fun!

Timed disappearing-reappearing blocks, a buzz-saw level, and levels with ghastly versions of Mario are all ideas from Galaxy 2. Collecting 3 star coins per level is an idea from the NSMBs. The timer in the corner is from... well, all of the non-3D games.

Considering that all those are in the game's 80-or-so levels, I'm somewhat interested now, even if the name (Seriously, where did "Land" come from?) and the console (A 3D portable is not my kind of thing.) don't make sense to me.

The name harkens back to Mario's old portable platforming adventures, in which they were all tagged "Super Mario Land".

EB Games in Canada is doing a promotion where you get a set of 2-piece pins for buying both Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 at their stores, so I think I'm going to pick this up despite the dire straights November is putting on my wallet. At least it's a portable game, otherwise I'd have no time to play this in between Skyrim and Zelda.

Yes, I know that, but it isn't quite as appropriate of a name as "Bros." would be, even if Luigi isn't in the game. I bet the game doesn't start with Egyptian pyramids nor unusual insects, and Wario is probably nowhere to be seen.

Because its a ridiculous mechanic. Note that it didn't really affect the score, but is worth mentioning as stupid.

but small children and casual gamers will also want to pick up the game and they don't have the reflexes we do.

Did you want to shut them out of gaming? Games cannot solely focus on the core gamers. If gaming did not every allow people new to gaming in, gaming will die with the last of the 80s children. Not everyone has been gaming since they were 4.

And sure, you might think it is stupid, but you'll probably never even see it. And if you do, then you're clearly not as good as you thought.

As for me, I'm probably going to do bad intentionally on some playthroughs just so I can run around in the game ans say, "I AM A GOD! YOU ARE A FOOL FOR THINKING YOU CAN HARM ME!!!" I personally thought that GOD MODE was always an acceptable feature in video games. It's hilarious. I know we had it in the 80s and 90s, so why is it considered a plague that is destroying the video game industry today?

Huh? Why is there a "Play"-button on the review's banner on the main page if there's not a video attached to this review? Or did I misinterpret the "Play"-button the entire time I've been on this website? I always thought that indicated a video supplement to a review.

Surprise surprise, the first Mario platformer on a new Nintendo system is really good.

I've been wanting to pick up a 3DS and this is really really edging me into buying one as soon as I get the money.

Are you serious? How do you think small children and casuals get those reflexes we have? BY FUCKING TRAINING OF COURSE! I started when I was a wee lad playing Super Mario Brothers 3 and Battle Toads. Guess what? I SUCKED! But I improved gradually because I really enjoyed the game and I really wanted to see what was next. Are saying people can't get through games today if they cannot cheat?

I wouldn't mind if it was unlockable cheat to get invincibility and whatnot, but this is just sad.

Yes. This may surprise you, but some people don't want to get frustrated by games. This is why gaming was originally a niche market.

Then they should work out their problems or find some other hobby. Seriously, that's pathetic. And I wouldn't call it a niche market. Gaming exploded in popularity at some point and nearly everyone played arcade games and owned Game Boys, Ataris or a NES. I know it's more popular now, but I think that's more because there is more people in the world and because motion controlled games appeals to a whole new different type of gamers.

No. What is pathetic is that attitude. Just because they don't play the game the same way as you doesn't mean that they shouldn't be allowed to get enjoyment out of it.

Real mature. It has nothing do with playing the game the same way as me or not. It's the fact they can't except defeat and must cheat to enjoy a game (You'll never see them in the Olympics). Don't tell me it's not silly. These people should be told it's just a game and get over it.

Also, I'm suspicious that you mention people like this, because I've never seen or heard of them. If they do exist, then they would be a minority for sure.

They're the majority. They're the people that tried to play a game once, got frustrated and gave up gaming as a hobby forever based on that experience.

(Edit: in previous generations of gaming).

Yeah, because it wasn't in their interest. Now if your talking very very difficult games, then that's different.

If they enjoy a game then they will keep going at it, this goes for everyone I know. Also, you still haven't given me any proof of this majority. I think you just really want to win. Either way, I'm still going to think it's pathetic and they should just get over it and try again (Unless it's some kind of mental handicap).

I would have thought the masses of gamers interested in playing `casual' games was evidence enough, but if you refuse to dig your head out of the sand I'm not entirely sure there's much I can say to convince you.

Bravo! Another insult. Anyway, you still haven't given me any evidence. As for the people who like to play casual games, got any proof that they only enjoy casual games? And even then, how do you know that this game won't sell just as well without invincibility? Remember this is Mario we're talking about, slap his face on the box and your guaranteed to make some sales already.

Don't split it up, it gets too messy after awhile.

1) Your head is in the sand, meaning your ignoring it or your ignorant. Not the way you talk to people if you want to make friends.

2) I know you didn't say it. I just brought it up because it's still directly on topic. Do you honestly think all these people who play casual games can't enjoy games that are challenging? Get it now?

3) That's not the point. If it still sells just as well, then your wrong. I would hope that your underestimating this mass you speak of and that they can enjoy a good challenge. We don't even know if this game is even going to be hard, like actually hard.

2) I didn't say that, either. They should be given the option though.

3) It's going to be Nintendo hard, by definition [/joke]. It's hard enough that Nintendo apparently thought that enough of their potential audience wouldn't be able to reach the end without the help to invest (what I imagine was) a significant amount of play testing and development into the Tanooki suit.

Children and casuals are not core gamers. They don't HAVE to train to play games. Not everyone has fun playing a game when they are dying every other opportunity. They think it is stupid. part of a game is to have mindless stupid fun. You're thinking of a sport. Eventually they will get board of the invincibility and try to do better. It is supposed to encourage new gamers, not punish them.

Also, games were a lot easier when we were younger and we got to gradually get better as games evolved. 3 dimensions are really confusing in video games. You don't think so since you've played them for so long, but the reality is that it is complicated, way more than our 2D and 2.5D days. I've seen people new to gaming play, It's not pretty. Lots of walking and dying, and that was in 2D. In 3D they gave up because it was just way too difficult. New people need this since they don't have our advantage of training.

Interesting, sounds like a cross between Mario 64 and one of the level-based one like SMB3 instead of being hub-based. If they really wanted to harken back to the bizarreness of Mario Land, maybe try making a 3D version of this...

1) It's a figure of speech, it means it's rude and no one would like hearing it. You say it to your friends and see how long they respect you for.

2) So you've giving me no evidence. Just fluff and your belief.

3) Then they can make an easy and hard campaign. Really, it's not that hard, especially for a billion dollar business.

I wasn't a core gamer starting off as well, and neither were my parents when arcades came out. You should be able to have fun even when you lose. I swear, you people make this up as you go to suit you. I really believe people can love a Mario game trying to solve puzzles and over come difficult challenges, that's the most fun part! Like everything in life, you improve the more you practice/play. And if your not enjoying it from the beginning, then it's not for you.

Also, games were definitely not easier when we were younger. I've beaten more 3D games than 2D games easily. You really are making this all up. "New people need this because they didn't have our advantage of training?" You can't be serious. How do you think we became more experienced? It wasn't because I had easy modes in Super Metroid and Metal Slug, that's for sure. In fact, arcade games are still very difficult and popular so I really doubt these casuals your talking about are at some disadvantage.

Yes. This may surprise you, but some people don't want to get frustrated by games. This is why gaming was originally a niche market.
There's not getting frustrated, then there's making your consumer lazy.

My little brother (I'm 24, he's 5) used the "play for me" button in both Donkey Kong Country Returns and NSMB. Now if he loses once in anything, and nothing comes along to bail him out, he quits the game and won't play it ever again. Is this what we want our kids to do?

I speak my mind and my friends respect me for that.

What would you accept as proof?

Yes, yes it is. Much harder than just implementing a god mode. It would require dual development and at least double the work load and playtesting.

It's hard enough that Nintendo apparently thought that enough of their potential audience wouldn't be able to reach the end without the help to invest (what I imagine was) a significant amount of play testing and development into the Tanooki suit.
1) It's a figure of speech, it means it's rude and no one would like hearing it. You say it to your friends and see how long they respect you for.
I speak my mind and my friends respect me for that.
2) So you've giving me no evidence. Just fluff and your belief.
What would you accept as proof?
3) Then they can make an easy and hard campaign. Really, it's not that hard, especially for a billion dollar business.
Yes, yes it is. Much harder than just implementing a god mode. It would require dual development and at least double the work load and playtesting.
1) You insult your friends, and they respect you for that? whatever.

2) You should know. Oh, forget it.

3) I feel so sorry for them, it must be really difficult to add an easy and a hard mode. I can't blame them, it's not like they've never done it before 100 times.

Yeah, this is going nowhere. Forget this ever happened.

I want a Mario game where you can play as one of several characters - similar to what they did in Mario 2, but maybe make it a more open world like Mario World or Mario Galaxy where you can choose your path.

Must not be many people that want that, cause they haven't done it since (at least that I can remember playing).

Yeah well that probably is because super mario bros 2(american and european version) for the nes wasn't an official Mario game. In japan there was an other mario game released but NoA deemed it to difficult (later that game was released as the lost levels). They took an unknown game and turned the 4 characters into mario/luigi/peach and toad(officially the game is named Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic) .

Funny how some of the monsters from that game are integrated into the mario franchise.

Again, I don't think you know what that word means.

*shrug* If there's no evidence that would sway you, then I guess there is no point.

Really? Most Mario games only have one difficulty level.

I'm afraid I have to agree.
