    For those who haven't had chance to play it, there is no better recommendation in 3D line Classics.

    It was fun then, it's still fun now, and if this is a taste of what's to come in future 3D Classics titles then I'm greatly looking forward to them.
  3. If you've already got this from the Wii Virtual Console, the 3D doesn't justify the price, but for everyone else this is another ace Kirby game.

    I just wish they'd taken this project all the way, instead of stopping with "good enough."

    Hidden exits, fun minigames and fantastic stage design all come together to make this an endlessly replayable experience, but the 3D Classics upgrade doesn't really bring much to the table in addition. In fact, aside from portability, there's really nothing to recommend it over the Virtual Console release, and that's a shame.

    We've always praised this game for its catchy music, bubblegum graphics and likeable hero. Nothing here has changed our collective opinion. If anything, this is the definitive Kirby's Adventure.

    Kirby's first outing puts the Wii game to shame - pity it's so crushed onscreen. [Christmas 2011, p.81]

The whole "3D Classic" selling point, if you want to call it, that isn't anything to write home about, however, the gameplay here is the one that impacted the perfect Kirby formula we know today. This was the first game to introduce us to Kirby's ability to absorb his enemies abilities, in some cases this is situational, although generally the wide capacity of useful ones enhances the tight gameplay. This system had been perfected in further installments, namely Super Star or Super Star Ultra, although it's still very fun and a unique concept here. Kirby has never been a difficult or even challenging, and it isn't much different here, although the shorter life bar than in modern games will keep you from taking to many risks and focus on conserving your health. The music is classic Kirby, upbeat, memorable, and very catchy, and the presentation is quite nice, especially in this rendition. It's an easy and calm game to jump in if you don't want to test your gaming skill, and is one of the greatest NES offerings in almost all aspects, and I'd say this port is the best you can get for the original experience.
