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 allowing simple button smashing... this game requires a bit of strategy and skill.

Not perfect, but close. Nintendo does it again.

3rd best 3DS game

awesome game with great graphics, addicting story, but bad controls. controls can be addaptable, but after a while begin to give you painful cramps. there's a load of content and cool multiplayer also. this is a game worthy for all 3DS owners

What is wrong with the controls?

I have read all of these reviews, and even professional reviews ranging from Classic Game Room to IGN, and they all complained about the controls. Truth be told, I had no problems with the controls. I mean, I just put my thumb along the circle pad, my finger along the trigger, and using my other hand for the stylus, using my extra fingers to hold the 3DS up. What is so complicated about that?

Other than the controls, the graphics were awesome, the gameplay was so much fun, and the story was amazing. For achievement hunters, there is something for you. Also, donating hearts to Palutena does nothing.
