When playing this game I was disappointed. Kirby can no longer suck up his enemies and steal their powers. However, playing through this game, I enjoyed the risk Nintendo took and it paid off. From the level design to the boss battles, epic yarn reinvents what a platform game is capable of. The mini games are entertaining, but you have to do the annoying room design quest which I did not find too entertaining.
Overall this game is a great rent to try something new or if you are a long time Kirby fan.
I got this game thinking it was going to be boring but i mean as soon i started playing i rated it an 8 then raised to an 9 still debated on 10. it is very fun. simple not to over done. the people who made did the graphics did so good controls are very easy. you can play with 2 players. all i can say is even if your not a Kirby fan put this on the top of your game q. it's fun for all ages. Buy it.
I had great expectations of this title. I thought it would make me smile as much as Yoshi's Island did ten years ago or even like Super Mario Galaxy 2 did just recently.
The game has cute, interesting graphics, but the music ruins it for me, as almost every song is slow and chilled out. That sort of soundtrack works for a game like Animal Crossing, but for an action platformer?
The level design is great, but there is zero challenge to them, as you can't die and most enemies don't hurt you. The levels can get slightly difficult when you try to collect everything there is to collect, but it's not worth doing so due to the shoddy rewards: 2D furniture cut-outs for your in-game pad.
Kirby's Epic Yarn is really more suitable for little kids, I suppose, and not for twenty-something year olds (Unlike New Super Mario Bros Wii or Donkey Kong Returns would be).
