I was hoping that the higher difficulty of the bonus worlds would extend the play long enough to make it to my vacation starting in a couple weeks (which is the main reason I got my 3DS now instead of waiting for this fall when the games that I'm really looking forward to are coming out), but all it has done is made me want to play even more than before, and threaten to finish up this second set of stages even faster than the original, easier group. I made it all the way to world 6, encountering more open levels than what was found in the original, more cleverly hidden star coins, and a proper haunted house stage, complete with maze-like level design. There are also races against the clock, and stages where you have to avoid a poisonous doppelganger on your way to the goal. It's more challenging and more fun than the first half of the game by far.

Is the game worth getting? I plan to pick up a 3DS in a few days and i was thinking of picking up this and Ocarina of Time, the latter is a no-brainer, the original is one of my all-time favorite games and i've been itching to play this *ahem* HD version :P
But not sure about Super Mario 3D Lands, i usually like Super Mario games, but i've heard the game is kinda short :\
@Phantomizer It is a little bit on the short side (probably 12-15 hours), and the first half of the game is pretty easy, but it's honestly worth it just to play something a little bit new and different in a Mario platformer. The combination of 3D Mario gameplay with 2D mario level design is extremely fun and perfect for portable gaming. The game also uses 3D in a way that actually makes a strong argument for it's existence on the 3DS: the depth actually makes hitting platforms and enemies much more intuitive than without the effect. In essence, the answer is yes: if you like Mario, than this one is absolutely worth getting.
Cool, thanks :)
