Super Mario 3d Land review (3DS)

Super Mario 3d land is a 3d platform game for the 3DS (its also in 3d if you didn't figure it out). Its is developed and published by Nintendo and is also one of the systems best sellers.

The gameplay feels unique, but it still feels like Mario, where it is a well designed platformer filled with powerups, enemies, and flagpoles. However what makes it unique is that most 3D Mario games are less linear than the 2D games and focus on collecting certain items rather than making it to a goal. This changes that, and when you play it, it doesn't feel like a 3D Mario game, it feels like a 2D game in a 3D environment, and that gives it a really unique feel. That changes also makes levels shorter and requires less searching around, which fits a portable game more nicely since you don't have a lot of time to find stars or red coins while sitting on a bus. The game has a very casual feel, which is nice for a portable title, but perhaps a little too casual. The game gives out lives at a very fast rate, and its easy to finish the game with over 100 lives. The levels also aren't extremely difficult, there may be a few that cause you to die and lose some lives, but after a few tries anyone can complete the levels, no matter how well they play video games. This makes the game more accessible, but I would of liked some more difficult challenges for hardcore players such as myself, there is a special world after you beat the game, but even that doesn't offer a lot of challenge. However its still Mario, this isn't meant to be hard, just fun, and it succeeds at that. The graphics look very good, everything is clear, there is a good 3d effect, and everything looks great. It is nothing that will blow you away, but it is still very pretty and is filled with color and and depth. The music is mostly remixes from past games with a bit of original music thrown in, its upbeat and enjoyable, but pretty forgettable. The story is no different than any other Mario game: Bowser kidnaps Peach, you rescue her, thats it. That is a old story but it works, its gives me a reason to hop and platform all over these fun levels, and thats good enough.

The game takes 10-20 hours to beat, and is extremely replayable, it is a game I go back to regularly despite beating it on many occasions because it is so much fun. It might not be made for hardcore gaming, but its great for anyone who wants to sit down for a while with a fun, relaxing game, or just for someone who wants to play a few short levels while waiting for a cab. It may not have the best story, but it is one of the most fun games on the 3DS. It cost 30-40 dollars, which can be a lot, but for what it offers it is well worth it, since most people will go back to it quite often.

9/10

Paper Mario: Sticker Star review (3DS)

Paper Mario: Sticker Star is a RPG game and is the fourth games in the Paper Mario series. I have played Paper Mario 2 and 3 and I am a big fan of both those games. I did prefer the turn based style of the second game and when I found out that the latest Paper Mario was going to return to that style I was excited. Now that I have played the game, I am disappointed on how it turned out, I do not regret my purchase or think that it is a bad game, but it is lacking many things that made previous entries great.

The game is a turn based RPG but there is a little more strategy in this game than in other turned based RPGs. You do not have unlimited attacks like in other games and you have to collect stickers in order to attack, the stickers are plentiful and can be found all over the place, so you won't run out very often, however this can add a little strategy in the game, since you may want to save your more powerful moves for tougher enemies or bosses. Another little thing in this game is you can't select what enemy to attack, if you are fighting a group you can only attack the person in front of you, its a very small thing but it makes a very big difference. These new features can make the game a little deeper and add some strategy into the battles, but it can add unnecessary frustration, I often skipped battles in order to preserve stickers or because battling multiple foes (and most enemies fight in groups) can be a real pain unless you have certain stickers, which are usually harder to get then regular stickers, but the changes to the battle system do not ruin the game and can help the game feel unique compared to previous Paper Mario titles.

The biggest problem with this game is actually not its fault, and you might not even have this problem if you haven't played the previous Paper Mario games. The problem is that it lacks the charm and depth that the other games offered. The story is very basic, and basically it just boils down to Bowser using the power of the Sticker Comet to kidnap Princess Peach and cause trouble. The previous entries had much deeper stories than the other Mario, while Sticker Star's plot feels like something from one of Mario more gameplay based platformers, which I have no problem with in other games, but not in a RPG. The other Paper Mario games also had a lot depth and charm in the characters and locations, the locations are very basic, and the hub town is very small, instead of layered and filled with secrets and unlockables, this is disappointing, and its is somewhat understandable since the game is on a portable system, but the 3DS does pack some power, and I have seen some pretty deep games on the 3DS, but there are many levels and the game is long, so the developers probably wanted to focus the game on the levels instead of exploring the hub. There is also a certain charm that was in the previous titles, and while it exists in this game, its not as strong, it has a smaller amount of characters and the lack of depth and basic story doesn't help either. There are many moments where the humor and charm of previous games is present. but these moments aren't present throughout the entire game, and there are also moments where the humor feels a little forced, and the game feels like its trying to be like the previous games, but just can't get it right.

The game isn't as good as previous entries, but it is still fun. The game kept me wanting more and made me want to come back. It is still enjoyable and if you can look at it as its own game rather than comparing it to other games, its great. The game also has some nice music that is enjoyable to listen to and the graphics look nice, but not amazing. I got the game for $20 and it last 20 hours. At most places I've looked it cost a little more, but I'd say anywhere between $20-30 is a fair price if you enjoy Mario and RPGs.

7.5/10
