Gamekult review: Super Mario 3D Land

Super Mario 3D Land is the episode that takes the easy road, in every sense of the word. Where the last Wii installments didn't hesite to inject challenge and originality, this 3DS version is the bread and butter, with levels you traverse like a routine, collecting all items without thrills or lasting memories.
Nonetheless, it is hard to drop the game once started, if only to discover its use of 3D, sometimes crafty, often well thought of.
Surgically efficient despite a lack of originality, the gameplay will surely please newcomers and old school fans alike, thanks to nostalgic touches and some alluring displays of fan service.
Demanding fans, for their part, will have to wait for the second half of the adventure and the special levels to finally discover a title worthy of its prestige. We only wish it had been the case from the beginning of the game. (3DS, Super Mario 3D Land) 7/10
