Super Mario 3D World
Super Mario 3D World is the latest WiiU must-have game, starring the world’s most famous gaming icon – Mario!
Following on from the success of last year’s New Super Mario Bros U, it’s a bright, colourful and wonderfully playable leap forward for a series that spans generations.
With hundreds of levels that take you from familiar green fields, to fantastic new locations like a floating carnival, everything looks better than ever thanks to the extra power of Nintendo’s Wii U console.
Presentation – Visuals, Sound and Theme
The gameplay feels updated too, sitting comfortably between the 2D of classic Mario games, and the full-blown 3D of something like Mario Galaxy or Mario 64. If you’re one of the thousands of gamers who got their introduction to Mario with the Wii, it’s a great way to ease into a deeper game world that you’ll love to explore.
And there’s plenty of exploring to be done. New power ups like the awesome catsuit or mind-boggling, multi-Mario, hidden in every nook and cranny. There’s tons of stickers, stars and coins to collect that it can seem like an impossible task for just one pint-sized plumber.
Multiplayer in the Gamewagon
Lucky then, that Super Mario 3D World supports up to four simultaneous players. You’re all bundled in together, as either Mario, Luigi, Toad or Princess Peach, working together to make it through level after level for imaginative fun.
So, who would’ve thought, with the bombastic launch of Sony, and Microsoft’s new massive consoles (with their massive price tags), we’d be talking so excitedly about a 30 year old series on a 2 year old machine? Super Mario 3D World is a pure gaming challenge for the hardcore, and the very best family gaming experience for the casual gamer.
