i only got five or six levels into this game and sent it back because i was bored to death, the enemies offer no danger of challenge, i think i was 'hit' by an enemy only once the whole time and it only happened because i let it happen out of curiosity if the enemies were actually enemies at all
My son and I love Kirby but found this to be one game that we did care to find all the secrets too. The multi-player made some of the levels more difficult to play and some boss levels were just plan silly. I would not buy this even to complete the kirby collection of games.
Kirby's Epic Yarn is definitely different from the rest of the Kirby series. For one thing it has a generally less mature nature, the graphics, music, and gameplay are nicer for the younger audience. It also lacks the floating ability Kibry usually has, and the ability to inhale enemies and copy thier ability. But the use of various transformations like a tank, a fire engine, a train, a dolphin, a penguin, a rocket ship, etc. help to make up for that loss. The only other new edition to the franchise is the two player co-op, in which a second player controls Kirby's blue friend, Prince Fluff. Kirby's Epic Yarn is generally a downgrade from the rest of the series, but that does not make it a bad game. It's not the best game in the series, but is it the worst? Absolutely not. If you want to play Kirby's Epic Yarn, go ahead, you'll be given a satisfying experience. If you're either sceptical about it or don't want to play it, you should at least give it a try, it's worth it. Though Kirby's Epic Yarn is generally better suited for the younger audience, it'll still most likely please hardcore Kirby fans.
