I have always loved Kirby Games. I've played Kirby's Adventure on NES several times, and have tried a handful of other games. I read about Return to Dreamland, and thought that I would give it a try. I was blown away!! The game-play is very similar to Kirby's Adventure, and the graphics and powers are amazing. This was an amazing game that I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. However, that isn't to say that this game didn't come with some cons.
The game was really easy. I died a few times mostly due to some last minute errors, and there are plenty of health items in each level. However, the last boss was fairly challenging. Also, the story is really cheesy. I eventually just ended up skipping most of the story cut-scenes toward the end of the game.
Overall, Kirby's Return to Dreamland is absolutely amazing, but it doesn't quite reach perfection. I would consider buying the game, but it is priced at close to $40, which is a little high for a game this short. If it lowers in price, I might consider buying it, but do not hesitate to try it out. If you have the opportunity to rent it or borrower it, take advantage of it. This game is really fun and they are several entertaining abilities to tryout through the levels.
