SUPER MARIO 3D LAND (G)
3DS, $69.95 ★★★★★ Super Mario 3D Land is another assured outing from the plumber. Levels are short but inventive, veering from classic platform challenges to delightful one-offs. Nods to Mario’s past abound, from donning his Tanooki suit to the flagpoles at the end of each level. The game is also a showcase for the system’s 3D display and uses it to great effect to complement its consistently clever level design. While not quite up to the heights of the Galaxy games, this is a 3DS classic. Out now.
