    Hey guys, Im buying one of these two games but I cannot decide which one to get !
    Does any of you own both of these and if so, which one do you like more?

    I really enjoy finding secret coins, is that the case in Mario 3d world too? Or just Super Luigi (mario) U ?

    Luigi is cheaper, but more like an expansion pack for New SMB U (though the retail release plays as stand alone).

    I'd say Mario 3D World. It has green stars and stamps hidden in every level that more or less function as hidden collectables (even though you'll need the green stars to progress through the game and not all of them are exactly hidden). It also seems like a more varied and overall enjoyable experience.

    Mario 3D Land, the soundtrack alone is a good reason, okay, and the fact there is a lot to collect :D

    I forgot to say that I havent played New SMB U and money is a big factor for me.
    60€ vs 40€

    which of these is longer, and which has more fun 2 player mode?

    I had super Mario 3D world and did not like it.. So I changed it to new super Mario Bros U and downloaded super Luigi u. I think multiplayer is funnier and more challenging in nsmbU than in 3D world.. But it's your choice, you decide :)

    3d worl is going to be longer, assuming you are collecting all the junk there is to collect

    would not suggest luigi u because the game consists of 100 seconds courses which makes you rush all the time.You miss the fun of exploring and looking at the beautifully designed background images.

    go with the 3d world

    Mario 3D World.

    I've tanked in quite a lot of hours already just to collecting all the Green Stars and Stamps but I'm yet to finish the Champion's Road and Mystery Box Marathon.

    I'm guessing that a lot of players won't get to even reach the Final World because it'll be too hard to them, not to mention, I see on Miiverse that they enjoy the White Tanooki...

    This is all the Green Stars I've collected so far on Mystery Box Marathon:

    Super Mario 3D World, that game is truly amazing, especially with friends. My bro and I went on a 2 day spree playing that game like, non stop until we had it 100% completed. It's decently long if you do all the side stuff, and it's too long if
