Topic: Ranking Mario’s 3D Adventures

Posts 1 to 20 of 88

There are 7 3D Mario games in total, and I thought it would be better to rank those than EVERY Mario game ever existed. Here’s my list:

7. Super Mario Sunshine

A lot of people like this game, and while it was graphically a lot better than 64, the game was very redundant and had over the top difficulty.

6. Super Mario 3d land

3D land is a great game, but 3D World is sadly everything 3D land has, but better.
Better controls, better graphics, better power-ups, and better stages, plus a lot more.

5. Super Mario 64

The 3d game that started it all is original, and has its moments, but is definitely not all it’s hyped up to be. It’s aged horribly, and some of its levels are rage-quit level difficulty.

4. Super Mario Galaxy 2

Super Mario Galaxy is a truly original and beautifully fun game to play. But, in a way, the magic of it all fades away, and it starts to look like just a regular game.

3. Super Mario Odyssey

The newest title is the most groundbreaking, there’s loads to do, collect, and Nintendo is still making ads for it! But, even if it was a blast to play through, the next 2 games are immediately better.

2. Super Mario 3D World

The game is just awesome. In general. The music, atmosphere, bosses, levels, everything is just so much fun. And compared to 3d land, everything is even better.

1. Super Mario Galaxy

Ahh, the grand finale, and honestly the best game of all time. The music is beautiful. The stages are gorgeous. The bosses are amazing. The hub is glamorous, and basically everything else is just supremely better than all games. The best Mario game of all time, and very well may be the best game. In general.

So what did you guys think? And what are your opinions?

@Apportal_SMM2 you but Galaxy in twice, I’m assuming one was meant to Galaxy 2.

64 > Odyssey > 3D Land > 3D World > Sunshine. I didn't own a Wii, so I've never played either of the Galaxy games. And the only reason I don't have Odyssey at #1 is because of the mandatory motion controls for some moon acquisitions.

@jump whoops, yes 4 is galaxy

@Qu0te nice list! I think 3d world is low, but hey, opinions, right?

Made an error at number 4, now everything is right

@BabyYoshi12 sorry lol I didn’t say it was a bad game, which it certainly isn’t, but 3d world and galaxy are just so much better.

@Magician Hey mate, thanks for your ranking! I appreciate you taking the time to do that!

Another unpopular opinion, but 3D mario games in general... aren't good! Ok ok, that's not a fair comment. I haven't enjoyed a 3D mario game ever, and that's just me. So me ranking them is not a good use of everyones time. But I give them 7 Tingles out of durian.

Would really like to play 3D world.

@Apportal_SMM2 I’d put it higher. Here’s mine:

UNQUALIFIED- Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Super Mario 64
I haven’t played these.

5- Super Mario 64 DS

4- Super Mario Galaxy

3- Super Mario 3D Land

2- Super Mario 3D World

1- Super Mario Odyssey

I also don’t classify myself to be allowed to rank the first two, as I couldn’t get into them. So this thread really isn’t for me. 😉

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

Thanks for the photo @1UP_MARIO !

@Anti-Matter I’ve never actually played a Ratchet and Clank game. Mainly because I’ve never had a console outside Nintendo lol. I’ll have to try it sometime!

@Ninfan it’s a great game. I’d highly recommend waiting for the deluxe port that will probably come soon.

Mario odyssey, galaxy series, and 3D world are the only 3D games I LOVE. @BenRK

Right now I would go with:

7. Super Mario Sunshine: Mario Sunshine's a good game ultimately, but it has some real questionable levels and the core gameplay just went in a direction that I find less engaging than a normal Mario game.

6. Super Mario 3D Land: On its own, I think this is the best "hey remember the old Mario games" game they've ever made. The levels are really fun, the music is a return to form that I would've assumed was done by Koji Kondo if I never looked at the credits, and its a nice nostalgia bomb. The problem is that this came right in the middle of Nintendo over-relying on that type of Mario nostalgia, which kinda made it harder to appreciate. It also felt a bit too much like linear Mario Galaxy levels at times without all the interesting gravity and space things.

5. Super Mario 3D World: Honestly, this might be a more flawed game than 3D World because of its attempts to appeal to co-op gameplay with its weird camera issues among other things. But it was a more creative, interesting game, which at least when I played it, made it better than 3D Land.

4. Super Mario 64: Tough call. I still adore this game, and while I feel like people underappreciate how much better it played than other 3D games of its time, its dated enough that its flaws are at least more noticeable than they were at the time.

3. Super Mario Odyssey: This would've been 2, but looking back on it, it is another game so utterly stuffed with content, not all of which was needed exactly, which makes me wonder how much I should've played it in hindsight, even though I enjoyed it. But regardless, its still a joy to play, a breath of fresh air and a wonderful experience with some of the best first 15 hours I've gotten out of games in ages.

2. Super Mario Galaxy 2: Its more Mario Galaxy, which is wonderful...

1. Super Mario Galaxy: ...but the original came first. What a joy this is to play, outside of the occasional questionable level (which is only questionable by this game's standards), its is borderline perfect. And I do put it above 2. I can't say definitively which one is objectively better or whatever, but this one came first and its most creative elements were more novel and new...here. So it wins out.

My ranking is similar to OP's but I think mine would be:
7. Sunshine
6. 3D Land
5. 64
4. 3D World
3. Galaxy 2
2. Odyssey
1. Galaxy

They're all fantastic games, obviously, except maybe Sunshine which I haven't finished yet but would currently rate as merely 'very good'.

Wow, feel like I should try Galaxy again. I was planning to, but then Mario Remaster Rumours came along and I think I’m going to wait for it on the Switch. 😉
