For those of you who have played Kirby's Adventure and Kirby Superstar, you know what to expect. For those of you who haven't, you're going to fall in love with this game.
in this new Kirby installment, an alien ship crashes on Popstar and catches kirby's attention. inside, an alien(if you could call him that) gets crazy over how his ship is wrecked and you have to go find the oars, left and right wing, emblem, and mast.
This game is (almost) everything you should expect from a kirby game. It has variety, very diverse gameplay, and is fun for all ages. The downsides are the facts that it has some pretty difficult parts (note Onion Ocean) to the point where you'll be fuming in your seat while watching a pink ball fall to its death. It's also a pretty short game. it took me two days to complete with hour breaks in between.
To sum everything up, these are my ratings:

gameplay------9.6
graphics--------8.3
cooperation----8.0
controls--------10
overall----------------8.9
This is definetly a rent and mabye a buy. Hope you like the game.

Kirby's Return to Greatness

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.
