There are fun games for the Wii, and then there are those games that are reminders of the reason you bought a Wii. Kirby's Epic Yarn is one of those games that Wii owners need to add to their collection.
If you enjoy games such as New Super Mario Brothers, Mario Kart, Zelda, Metroid Prime, or Donkey Kong, then you probably already know that Nintendo makes the best games for the Wii. Kirby's Epic Yarn is what you have probably been waiting for.
GRAPHICS: Beautiful - puts next generation games to shame at times. MUSIC: Catchy, cheery, and ready to create nostalgia all over again. MULTIPLAYER: VERY FUN. The team play is again a staple of Nintendo. DIFFICULTY: You will never die, but the challenges can be tricky. CONTROLS: Perfect use of a Wii-mote. Thank you Nintendo!
This is a great game for the young at heart. It is very long, but has so many neat things that Kirby can morph into, you'll be anxious to see what the next level holds! This is a definite purchase if you have $50.
My 5yr old son loves it mostly for the fact that it's 2 player but it is also pretty fun. The parts where you turn into stuff like fire truck or UFO's is probably the best feature. He also like collecting furniture to decorate his room. Definitely a good game for little kids.

kirby epic yarn is a great game. it is VERY different than the games gamers know and love but in this case it pays off. the yarn is not a gimmick and the graphics are amazing. there is one dud thought-the difficulty, you will never die its just about getting a good score. this game has a new super mario bros wii feel to it and is a great platformer. 9 out of 10
