Re: The Official Super Mario Thread
I'm replaying the earlier levels in Super Mario 3D Land to get some of the big coins I missed so I can progress in later parts of the game. Guys, I think 1-1 in that game might be the single best level in the entire Mario series. It's got so much variety, so many hidden secrets, it's just a lot of fun to run around in.
And to get real nerdy, the game design is fantastic. The first area has this straight, left to right path which sort of makes it look like a traditional 2D level, but they place coins and things off to the side to teach new people who maybe haven't played a 3D game before how to move around in a 3D environment.
I'm not quite finished yet (two worlds to go), but so far this is easily my favorite Mario game since Super Mario World.
