Edge- Super Mario 3D Land Review

Edge: "It may have been developed by EAD Tokyo, but Super Mario 3D Land isn’t a 3DS spin on Super Mario Galaxy. And it might have that familiar raccoon tail wagging at the end of its logo, but 3D Land isn’t really a sequel to Super Mario Bros 3, either. What 3D Land is, then, is Mario, not quite as you know him today, but perhaps as you faintly remember him from days gone by.

Super Mario 3D Land is a magpie of a game, but it fuses its 2D and 3D influences to make a Mario that feels fresher than any handheld Mario in years. It’s not a new Galaxy, but it’s an ideal companion piece to EAD Tokyo’s Wii games. Whereas they pushed up against the edge of the universe to show us what an unfettered Mario can do, Super Mario 3D Land does the opposite. It homes in, with a clockmaker’s precision and a playful gleam in its eye, on what Mario does best." (3DS, Super Mario 3D Land) 8/10
