Really Bad

NOT VERY FUN

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
