I for one really enjoyed this game for the new 3DS. The gameplay is not only bright and colourful, with the new 3D screen which really leaps out at the player and put's you right in the middle of Mario's world, but the gameplay is lively and challenging enough to keep you playing. In my opinion the only down side would be with the console rather than the game itself, as watching the screen from an angle (like looking over someone's shoulder) did give me a slight headache. Although the 3D settings are adjustable and i didn't receive any of this playing the game myself, I would definitely recommend Super Mario 3D Land as a great christmas present for children and adults alike. It surely kept me playing for a good few hours before i had even realized the time had passed.
