EDGE has gone live with the first review of Super Mario 3D Land, the first core Mario title for the 3DS, awarding it eight out of ten.
The notoriously critical mag praised the game’s use of “some of the best, most subtle use of 3D” the console has seen so far, and called it “fresher than any handheld Mario in years”. It was less impressed with the grab-bag power up gameplay.
Super Mario 3D Land launches in November, exclusively for 3DS.

“Below-average games are not being reviewed as often as they once were and, partly as a result, critics have not honed their skills at assigning scores from the lower end of their grading scales. The question of exactly how bad a game has to be to merit a 1 score instead of 2 on the 10 point scale, for example, is not being contemplated with as much experience, care and precision as the 8 versus 9 consideration.
“Even though enduring a 10-15 hour game that has been thrown together must be an excruciating experience for the game critic, picking that game apart in a review with the degree of care and precision that he or she would employ when reviewing a brilliant AAA game would absolutely help to better define a publication’s full scoring scale, making every subsequent score more meaningful.” – Metacritic founder Marc Doyle to GamePro.
