It is a really good game even though i did not get to finish it because i felt it was a bit to long and plus i did not have enough time to play it is also very funny so really recommend it but if you are left handed you might find the controls a little bit tricky but you will eventually find a way to play it ....

Very Good

A great game set back by a painful control scheme

-Pros: Tons of content, great voice acting, some of the best graphics yet for the 3DS, solid multiplayer

-Cons: The controls are literally painful to use

I had a good time with this game, but I sent it back to Gamefly relatively soon because the game forces you to use the touchpad to aim and move around the stick, which I found to be really painful after a while. Which is a shame, because there is a lot of really awesome stuff in this game.

Superb and Hectic Return for Pit

Pit's return from long dormancy is not met with meek effort. This game is not for the faint of heart, particularly if you plan to play on an intensity of greater than 8. However, if you do and can play at a higher intensity you will find yourself rewarded and feeling accomplished.

This time, pit ditches the 2 dimensional realm for a more interactive and in-depth 3rd dimension. This opens up several new play options including the opportunity to explore, though not as much as I would have liked. This is the games only short-fall in my opinion and the only reason it did not receive a 10.

Graphics in this game are not lacking and definitely use the power of the 3DS. Sound is equally stunning (though the script bit lame/childish in one or two spots.... which I liked because it added comedy). Controls are not easy. But they are easy enough if you don't mind not being pandered like most games do...by allowing simple button smashing... this game requires a bit of strategy and skill.

Not perfect, but close. Nintendo does it again.
