I've been a Kirby fan since Kirby's Dreamland on Nintendo, and this one does not disappoint. First off the graphics are amazing, smoothe and crisp, everything just flows together wonderfully. Second, if anyone has ever played Kirby Superstars on SNES, you'll feel a since of nostalgia, they brought back some of the favorite copy abilities and revamped them considerably. Although they took out some of my personal favorites, :(, I still thoroughly enjoy this game, a definite buy for any Kirby fan, or rent for a good jog of memory.
Nintendo seems to be going through a trend of reviving old classics. With games such as New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Donkey Kong Country Returns. It only makes sense that they would take this trend to a franchise as classic as Kirby. Kirby's recent games like Epic Yarn and Mass Attack are both unique and entertaining in their own ways, but they lack the traditional Kirby style. The last traditional Kirby game we got was Kirby Super Star Ultra on the DS, which was a remake. Now we finally get to see a traditional style Kirby game on a home console that still manages to bring some fresh new ideas to the table. The biggest new addition is the four player co-op, where three other players can take control of Meta-Knight, King Dedede, and a Waddle Dee. Each of these partners have their respective weapons, as opposed to Kirby being able to copy the abilities of his foes, they're stuck with them. However Kirby can lose his copy ability when he gets hurt, the other players can't lose their weapons. But if you still prefer Kirby's copy ability, any of the three extra players have the option of playing as a clone of Kirby. The four player co-op is a great improvement over that of NSMBW. You spent most of the time bumping into the other characters and they were more of a hindrance than a help. Here you just walk through each other rather than bounce off of them. And you can jump on top of other players like in NSMBW, but the player carrying the other has all their attacks. As opposed to NSMBW where you were rendered defenseless. The Super abilities are also really fun to use, they're like the final smashes from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. They range from giant swords, to giant flaming dragons, to giant rolling snowballs, to giant hammers, to giant magic energy balls, and are a lot of fun to use. The only downside with this game is the easy difficulty. But this is Kirby, it's supposed to be for kids, it always has been. But it's still a classic nonetheless which is why I enjoy it.
