Summary of this Video Game...
After an alien named Magolor crashes his spaceship into Dreamland, its up to Kirby and his friends to help find the pieces of Magolor's spaceship so it can be repaired.
The gameplay is classic Kirby platforming. Kirby will explore numerous levels while dealing with traps, enemies, and platforming challenges. As always, Kirby can copy the powers of the enemies he encounters and can use them. New to this game however is four player support. Up to four players can play as King Dedede, Meta Knight, Waddle Dee, or another Kirby at one time. Also new to this game are super abilities. There are more powerful versions of Kirby's normal copy abilities and they are used to clear our screens of enemies and uncover secrets.
This type of Video Game is good for...
Anyone who wants a quality platformer or is a fan of Kirby games.
I especially liked...
The levels are well designed and encourage exploration, the copy powers are fun to use, the music is catchy and upbeat, the four player co-op is enjoyable and the super abilities are a blast to use.
I didn't like...
While the super abilities are enjoyable, they can often force Kirby to drop a useful ability that he might already have. Also, the game plays it fairly safe when compared to other recent Kirby games like Mass Attack and Epic Yarn
This Video Game made me feel...
Happy due to its upbeat design.
I recommend this Video Game because...
Its a quality platformer that shows the classic Kirby games are still fun to play.
I don't recommend this Video Game because...
If you've never liked a previous Kirby game, then this one won't change your mind. Also, it plays it pretty safe so there is the chance it might come off as a rehash if you're played previous Kirby games.
Overall, this is a fun platformer that has upbeat music, good level design, many ways to experiment with the wide array of copy powers, excellent multiplayer, and is fun to play though. Its also not as hard as other games, so it will be easier for young children to beat this games.
I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed New Super Mario Bros or Donkey Kong Country Returns.
