My Review: Best game from Nintendo

Honestly, i believe that Kid Icarus: Uprising was the best game that Nintendo has ever come up with. The weapons were in a large number, even the same exact weapons had different strengths! The campaign mode kept me busy forever and it never got boring. Most of the missions in campaign had a Zodiac chamber, which had you scrambling to find even newer weapons. The Flight battles and the land battles in every mission differed in many ways. The boss battles at the end of every single mission really tested your skills as an angel, and were very fun. But the best part of the game was the multi-player. It allows you to compete with other players around the world to test your angel skills in two different modes, Light vs Dark and Free-for-all. These two modes really differed. The Light vs Dark was like a team Deathmatch. You team up with 2 other players and face another team with 3 people. Depending if your on the Light or Dark side, your player will be either white or black. You don't always play as an angel. At a certain point, some one on your team will turn into either Pit or Dark Pit.
However, i personally enjoy free-for-all more. It keeps you on your toes. As the name says, its one man for themselves. The arenas for both of these modes are the same, but they almost always change after every match. Kid Icarus: Uprising, You have gotten my first 10 for a rating. The Best Game EVER!

Best 3DS Game I have Played

This is a great game to have on the 3DS. The story is very enjoyable, and has many suprises for you. The only issue is how much the characters talk. THEY DON'T SHUT UP...EVER! Not to say voice acting isn't a great aspect to a game, but this is over the top.

There are so many weapons and powers in this game that more than likely you wont encounter anyone else with the same set. There are nine different types of weapons: staffs, bows, clubs, orbitars, blades, claws, palms, cannons, and arms. Each weapon has its strengths and weeknesses, like staffs can snipe people easily from a great distance, but have very little melee ability. As for powers, they allow anything from exploding jumps to countering attacks thrown at you. Getting good powers and combining them with weapons makes all the difference in online matches.

If you hear the controls are terrible, they aren't. Its only a new concept to get used to. Actually, the controls work quite well for any part of this game. Its a combo of the circle pad, the left shoulder button, and the touch screen.

Now, for the best part of the game, Together mode. I play online with this game all the time. It has barely lags. My Wii lags when online more than this does. Its outstanding, though Free-For-All gets a little chaotic with so many players going at it at once. Light vs Dark is great not only because its a team vs a team, but theres a little bit of strategy to it. The team has one big health bar. Each time someone dies the bar goes down. How much value your weapon has determines how much of the health bar goes down when you die, so big strong weapons are impossible to use unless you are so perfect that you can't die. Once someone dies with no team health left, they become the teams angel. If they die as an angel, their team loses.

Overall, the only problem I had was the amount of talking during the story. Though its unnecessary, it doesn't take away from the fun to be had while playing this game.
