So have any of you made it to the special world yet?

Have you?

@TaliciaDragonsong: Yes, and my mind was BLOWN on the first level.

Do you still have to collect stupid stuff like in NSMB Wii?

#5 Posted by Hizang (9360 posts) -

@AlmostSwedish: There are three coins in each world to collect, there not to hard to collect.

Liar. Unless you pre-programmed a robot to type these messages your mind is still intact. Thus, you have not reached the special world yet :D

Maybe you're the dragon just want our gold!

@Hizang: Is this game worth buying a 3DS? I would really love a new Mario platformer to play but I can't decide.

@Hizang: So "yes" then? :)

I'm sorry I don't mean to be rude. I just find that mechanic to be incredibly boring and ancient. I only ever had the patience to unlock the first level in the Wii version. I don't get why they hide good level design behind collectibles. I beat you game, just give me the levels. Heck, I rather they have you complete each world under some certain time limit instead. At least that way the challenge is somewhat consistent.

The special world after you beat 8-6 or whatever? or do you mean something else because yeah, Ive beaten the first special world and gotten Luigi etc.

I finished the first 8 worlds while sitting at the Honda Dealership. The game is ridiculously easy.

Most of it is, but theres definately some tricky parts in that last world.

@Rappelsiini: This game alone is not enough to get a 3DS, but with the whole DS library available, a few good 3DS games and hey the future (Mario Kart 7) you may as well get it. Oh and Super Mario 3D Land is one of the best Mario game I have played.

@GunstarRed: Ok so there seems to be some confusion, for people that don't want to know don't read.

On the first level there is a poison mushroom and a Tanooki suit that can turn you in to a statue.

Haven't gotten to the Special World yet, but the white invincible Tanooki Suit you get the choice of collecting when you die too many times is GODLIKE.
