    By far one of the most Kirby Games. It is a perfect mix between difficulty and fun. This game is perfect for a car ride or any situation. Creativity, level design, and overall mechanics at its finest..

    kirby: squeak squad is, in my opinion, the best of the kirby games. the way that you can actually choose kirby's colour and upgrade your powers with scrolls and store powers to use anytime

    "Kirby Squeak Squad" is very satisfying and enjoyable. The campaign and cutscenes are just terrible, but the gameplay is one of the most original concepts i've seen. A good DS game that will entertain you till the heart.

    Pros
    +Dual Screen capability allows the ability to combine abilities and items and hold items/abilities for later which brings a new fresh experience to the series
    +The goal of collecting treasures is both challenging and rewarding due to the fact the contents consist of different rewards such as music test tracks, color changes, special enhancements to abilities, artwork puzzle pieces and even methods of increasing health or unlocking stages
    +Music tracks from previous games are remixed alongside new tracks exclusive to the game
    +Extra mode and Boss Endurance mode are included upon completion thus increasing the replay value of the game
    +Fighting a mini boss at the end of each level is a fresh new feature not seen in previous games
    +A few new abilities do show up alongside some of the most memorable abilities that have not had an appearance in a while

    Cons
    -Stages are easy and short
    -Mini games not as exciting as previous Kirby games

    This game is a lot like the games for gameboy advance, it seems like the only difference is the power mixing. It is not the best game I have ever played but it is enjoyable.

    I quite enjoyed this one, along with Amazing Mirror. This game brought back nostalgia even though it was a new release. It went back to the old style while introducing a new fresh story and some new abilities.

    Another kirby game i like a lot, Its what kirby should be in everyway with a stupid plot line, Colourful graphics, Minimal Difficulty and of course a decent array of copy abilities yet this would probably be one of the smallest ammount of copy abilities for all i know.

Somethings i think that ruined it slightly is that the game is incredibly short with only 8 areas and 5 stages (there are EX stages but they arent very hard)with easy to get unlockables and they gave kirby an infinite float which isnt even needed unless your fighting kracko. Overall i think its a great kirby game but with the least content of them all with no The arena or True arena which is dissapointing so i'd recommend it for a cheap price, but I'd say go with Superstar ultra if you want a full kirby game on DS Expand

    This game should not get mixed reviews this game is amazing. Sure it is flawed still and this game is one of the first kirby ds game so it can't be perfect but this game is great.

    Kirby Squeak Squad is by far one of the best entries in the Kirby series, providing yet another wholesome Kirby experience while also adding some welcome additions to the game.

Kirby Squeak Squad plays over 8 different worlds providing over 40 levels of gameplay. In each level, there are multiple treasure chest you can find and if you finish the level with them you will unlock new items that can be seen on the level select screen. These items vary between music sheets, different colours for Kirby, and extra abilities for Kirby's different copy forms. Kirby Squeak Squad adds 5 new copy abilities which are the Animal, Bubble, Ghost, Metal, and Triple Star. Each of these new copy abilities is interesting and are a wonderful addition to the already stellar roster. The game does not provide much difficulty although some may consider it somewhat more difficult than other games in the Kirby series because of the lack of companions. Kirby does not have the ability to have companions in this game, therefore, for each battle, Kirby is all alone. Squeak Squad does, however, add an inventory that serves as being able to carry around healing items and transformation items so that they can be used at a later point. The soundtrack is pleasant just like other Kirby games and the atmosphere is beautiful and very well done. Kirby Squeak Squad mixes up the formula of the series enough to be an absolute enjoyment to play, it may not take you to long to complete the game but with the abundance of collectibles completing the game fully will take some time, luckily each part of the game is so well-developed that it never feels like a chore even if you have to backtrack to a previous level.

    Cons
    No companion system
    Game may feel lacking in content for those who don't care about collectibles

    The only thing we didn't like about Squeak Squad is that it's a tad on the easy side...But there is no denying the ineffable charm of this title.

    Stomach issues and assumption of Japanese linguistic ability aside, however, Squeak Squad is the most complete conventional Kirby side-scroller in some time. Yes, it may not be a "killer app" like Canvas Curse, but it's not trying to be.
  3. Though Kirby Squeak Squad rarely finds a way to challenge you, it's a clever and cute enough platformer to recommend to most DS owners.
