Christopher Buffa (Prima Games): There’s a lot to love about Super Mario 3D World. Not only does it let you play as different characters with unique abilities, but Nintendo also poured a huge dose of imagination into designing the game’s levels. There’s also the new Super Bell Power-Up that turns your hero of choice into a cat. It’s as cute as it sounds.
That said, don’t go into this title expecting to beat it in eight hours or less, especially if you want 100 percent completion. On that note, here are some Super Mario 3D World tips to help you get warmed up.
