Don't get me wrong this game is fun and exciting but it's to easy. You can never die in any level which gives you no challenge. I think this games good but not great, this game is for the person who wants to 100% games. Half of the game is actual game not collecting hidden things. So i give it a 6

Finally Kirby gets his own game for the Wii, and it's a great one at that.

The main draw of this game is the art style, everything is made of yarn, fabrics, buttons, stitches, and crafts! It looks really great and is very colorful.

Your main weapon of attack is a magical whip made of yarn. You'll grab enemies, and can roll them up into balls and throw them back. Kirby's trademark sucking ability is absent in this game, but there's many transformations that make up for it. A few of the transformations include: a car, a dolphin, a driller, and even a giant robot. The transformation sequences were always fun, and the dolphin in particular was my favorite.

The game is pretty easy, as you can't die. You just lose points, in the form of the beads that you collect throughout the level. The game becomes difficult if you want to try to make it out of the level with a gold rank (by not getting hit by enemies). Plus the 3 hidden treasures in each level will add a bit of difficulty and a lot more playtime to the game. You also have a house that you can decorate with the treasures you find throughout the levels.

The game is fairly short, and you'll easily beat it in just a couple of days. Which might make this game appropriate for just renting, unless you're the type who loves to collect everything and frequently replays games.

Either way, don't miss this epic adventure!
