Top 10 3DS Games: Two Years and Counting #1 - Super Mario 3D Land

NWR: From announcement to release, the tale of Super Mario 3D Land unfolded like a classic underdog story.

It seems silly to ever consider a mainline entry of the Super Mario series as an underdog, but coming out of E3 2011, things didn't look so hot. While few expected it to turn out poorly, the skepticism came from the quality of Mario's two previous outings. How could a new Mario game eschew the scale of the Galaxy games? Is it banking too much on its stereoscopic 3D? Throw in the fact that Super Mario 3D Land was aiming to be the 3DS's savior, and anything but perfection had only left people worrying. (3DS, Super Mario 3D Land)
