We rented this game for my 9 year old. She loved it. It was so hard to get her to stop playing. Its a very cute game, however it gets a little confusing when more then one player are playing. But overall it is an excellent game.
This game is fun,but after a few days it gets boring and it seems like your playing different versions of the same level.So if your the kind of guy who likes adventure,I would not recomend this to you instead try Mario Galaxy 2 and not waste your time.
In my reviews, I give 5 stars for how fun a game is and another 5 for the overall quality.
This game is very enjoyable, yet challenging where it needs to be. I'll admit, getting all of the Energy Spheres seemed nigh-impossible as I played, and I didn't even attempt it since this was a rental, after all, and I needed to return the game eventually. If you loved the classic Kirby platformer titles that came out, including Kirby 64, and Kirby Squeak Squad, you'll definitely love this game. That said, the later levels were frustrating, but that keeps it from being too easy, and the game doesn't really suffer from it. Fun Score: 5/5
The graphics are all fantastic, and the music is just what I'd expect from a Kirby game: fun but dramatic when it has to be, and a wonderful listen. The enemy and boss design is great, varied, and keeps you on your toes during the boss fights. And the inclusion of the new 'Guard' move is a great idea. However, there are minor problems with level design. In the older games, if you walk far enough off screen, enemies that give copy abilities respawn. Fair enough, but here it's with every kind of enemy you can find. I'm not sure what the point of that was, since the plain enemies don't really do anything for you. And finally, I don't think the inclusion of the ability-containing crystal balls was necessary for the actual levels with enemies in them. Jut put the enemies in there instead. The boss levels and the ability rooms on the Starcutter I can understand. But these are more like annoyances than actual hindrances. Quality Score: 4/5
Overall, this is a great game to play, a great rental, and maybe even a great buy if you're a big Kirby fan. Final Score: 9/10
Kirby's Return to Dreamland is a breath of fresh air!! Honestly his previous Epic Yarn was not was real fans wanted, thus the cheep price on ebay for the used buy! Return to Dreamland basicly places you as Kirby but i couldn't help the New Super Mario Bros. WII Playalike with the addition of the 3 extra friends that are there to make this the first multi player Kirby game!! There are a lot of suprizes in this game and honestly don't take it lightly, no matter how you play, unless you get 100% you are not complete!!
Finally calssic kirby is back the last kirby i played was kirby epic yarn and it's nothing like oringnal kirby no sucking up enims to steal their powers there is nothing oringlnal in kirbys epic yarn kirby return to dreamland is a great game you can steal powers my favorite power is the sword the game is really easy but when your collecting all of the small pieces it's a chalnge this game is so great it's worth a buy

This game was a sheer delight. It entertained me, my brother, my little cousin, my Uncle, everybody. This game is literal fun for the whole family, and fun for all ages. It was refreshing in the first place to see a return of Kirby to console. It's been a while since we've been able to play a console game as Kirby where he wasn't fighting, racing, or made of string. The platformer game play was quite enjoyable, especially with the new powers. Nature Kirby, Water Kirby, and the upgraded classics, not to mention the monster powers. The multiplayer ability is fun, as it's always a treat to be able to play as King DeDeDe and Metaknight. Throwing in the new Waddle Dee character just makes it all the more enjoyable, as you get to play as one of the minions that you've been beating, drowning, and eating since the very beginning. The graphics in this game were better than expected from a Kirby game, although anything that has Kirby back in his regular form means better graphics than 'Kirby's Epic Yarn'. Don't get me wrong, I loved 'Epic Yarn', but I really began to miss the old Kirby controls quite early on in the game. Hopefully, this won't be the last time we see Kirby come to console, as this game has proven that Kirby can still entertain in games that aren't on a handheld system.

What can I say, its Kirby. It is pretty middle of the road by the numbers Kirby. I actually really enjoyed Epic Yarn, that just brought some great visuals and added some nice new gameplay elements. Return to Dreamland just feels like every other Kirby game, there is no reason this couldn't have come out 10 years ago on the Gamecube. Not a bad game, but it is pretty meh.
