Super Mario 3D World review | Negative World

Jamie P from Negative World writes: "3D Mario games have taken quite a journey since Super Mario 64. Looking at all of the 3D Mario games, from 64, to Sunshine, to Galaxy (and Galaxy 2), to 3D Land, it is easy to see how Nintendo has strayed more and more from the "playground" blueprints that Super Mario 64 created. Even after the exceptional Super Mario Galaxy (and its sequel), it wasn't until Super Mario 3D Land where Nintendo finally went "back to basics," so to speak, with its flagship franchise. Nintendo had finally created a 3D Mario game that combined the three dimensional gameplay of Super Mario 64 with the tight, linear, "point A to point B" nature of the original games. Once again, players were nabbing Fire Flowers and Tanooki Suits, bashing blocks and climbing up flagpoles. With Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo has taken what they started with Super Mario 3D Land and made it even bigger and grander." (Super Mario 3D World, Wii U) 9.5/10
