    All I get when I play the 3DS is a stabbing migraine, just like all those 3D movies.

    you can turn it down, or even off. btw, my experience is the more time i spend playing it the less eye strain i get. i think its strengthening my eyes.

    I know you can turn it off but then you're stuck with basically an Nintendo DS, doesn't seem worth it if you ask me.

    No, the 3DS is a lot more powerful than the DS, even without the 3D on.

    Same here. Something odd is that if I havent played it for a week or so and I turn the 3d all the way up I will get drowsy after 45 minutes or so. It's a nice way to get ready for bed though.

    I picked it up on launch day but I havent had a chance to play it. I'm gonna crack it open tonight.

    I got my copy of the game as well and it's VERY fun. The levels are very linear, but the way that things are hidden throughout is very clever from what I have seen so far (I've whipped through worlds 1 & 2 so far).

    The pacing is really great; the length of the levels is ideal for playing while commuting... even though the iPhone is easier to hold while drinking a morning coffee...

    I want to get my way through Zelda OOT3D, but Mario 3D Land keeps pulling me back in. It's a ton of fun.

    Has anyone done any of the street pass stuff? I turned it on but don't really know what it does yet...

    And yeah, it does make my eyes go a little wonky though...

    Nope - I've never received any Street Pass hits. It probably works great in Japan with its population density, but here in Canada, nuthin

    Yup. I've completed all the puzzles and am at the final boss in the dungeon crawler. I've met almost 200 people. You just need to take it to the right place. I did an anime convention earlier this year. It was like gang busters. Did CA Xtreme as well, got another 20-30 there too. Just remember if you do go to a place like that, that you can 'store' up to 10 new hits at a time before you need to use them, so use em, get the pieces, do the dungeon crawler, and then put it back to sleep. It does take some time, but you can rack em up quick under the right circumstances.



    You can earn 10 coins a day by walking around with your 3DS on in your pocket. You'll get to 1k steps pretty fast. You can then use those coins to get the puzzle pieces or do the dungeon crawler. I'd recommend burning them on the dungeon, as you'll eventually level up those L1 pups and cats that fight w/ you and thats a bigger help than building the 4 or 6 puzzles that don't do anything.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Speaking of Street Pass, does it work with software/hardware from different regions? I was considering getting a JP 3DS.

    Just completed the 7th World in Super Mario 3D Land, breathtaking game that really utilizes the 3D features especially when you get beyond World 8 from what I hear. Simply put, if you own a 3DS go out and buy this game now =D I love how it combines the gameplay of New Super Mario Bros with the style of Super Mario 64 and there are plenty of references and throwbacks to almost every classic Mario game. The street pass and gyroscope features are a nice touch as well. The Boomer Rang suit is a nice addition to the franchise as well!

    Heh.. do you also think the GBA is the same thing as the Gameboy as well?

    They did do the 3DS a disservice by focusing on the 3D aspect of it.. people (like you obviously) just think it's a DS with 3D tacked on.

    So, I'm bumping this thread from 2011, because I was just recently playing this game while on vacation, and I think this could potentially be a modern day video game masterpiece. Seriously, no joke. I'm talking potentially one of the best Mario games of all time. I'm talking right up there with Super Mario World, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario 64.

    Anybody else think this is an instant classic ?


    Also, just wanted to mention, I normally would never this quickly start calling something a classic, it's only been out a few years, but man, this game is blowing my freaking mind. It's absolutely overflowing with that magical Nintendo quality.

    I have to agree. Super Mario 3D Land is easily one the best Mario games ever. It takes the classic 2D gameplay (persistent power-ups, small Mario) and combines it with 3D stages that don't feel like I have to retread 5 or 7 times like you do in all the other 3D Marios. Its the closest 3D Mario games have ever gotten to the 2D version of gameplay. And the stage designs are all fantastic.

    And there is a TON of levels, the Hard World alone makes this game feel like a challenge.

    I head 3D World is just as good, if not better. But for my money 3D Land is just... how all 3D Marios should be.

    Eyes don't work like that. You're just getting used to it.

    Yes. Careful though, you might get your USA 3DS stuck with a puzzle only available in other regions. Depending on where you find piles of people with 3DS's, it could take a while to fill those out.

    It's a good game but the off angle viewing in a lot of stages is a major issue of the game. Whether the 3D is on or off, there are a lot of jumps that you'll end up making that look as if you'll land where you plan but you're at a completely different area. It makes suits like the Raccoon and Tanooki suit 100 times better than anything else in the game since you can hold x and make sure the shadow of the character is on the ground. There are a lot of 3D games with off angle viewing that don't have this problem, you'd assume Nintendo is a developer that could avoid this problem.

    Really? I never had a problem landing a jump properly. In fact the stereoscopic 3D did wonders for generally knowing where your character was actually going to land in 3D space since it gives you depth perception.
