Now, onto the point of the 3D. I'll admit I'm not a fan of the 3D that the 3DS provides. It makes me dizzy and I don't recommend playing games with it on. With this game however, I think the 3d works. I don't use it much, however, it doesn't make me dizzy like other games do. I also found that sometimes I needed the 3d on because I would get confused as to how far away something was. So in that aspect, the 3d was helpful. The graphics look gorgeous as well with the 3D both on and off, so that's always a plus.
Overall though, I recommend this game if you want to play something to kill time. Otherwise, it may not be the best game to get. I got it and I don't regret my purchase since it is a fun game to play when I'm bored but don't want to play anything serious.
Even though this is a 3D Mario title, it pays homage to previous linear side-scrolling Mario adventures including the original Super Mario on the NES. Each level ends with a flag pole. Some tunes are based on previous Mario games. There are also a lot more brick and "?" blocks than seen in previous 3D Mario games. It really feels like home, as if it's a logical progression between Super Mario World's linear gameplay style and Super Mario 64's open-ended objective based goal system.
This game utilizes the 3DS in creative ways. Some levels allow you to scope out the levels using a viewing system controlled by the system's motion sensors. The system's response to motion is very accurate. The 3D effect is also used very creatively. I couldn't help but smile the first time I hit a "?" block in true 3D! While the game can be played with the 3D effect turned off, many areas in the game all but require it to judge the depth of some platforms.
The first few worlds are really fun but also very easy. The difficulty increases as you go and some challenges are pretty tough. For inexperienced players there are a few mechanisms to help you along if you get stuck so don't give up!
Overall this is a great game suitable for just about any game player.
Great products for sure !
