  1. If you don't play Kirby Super Star Ultra, you're missing a great game. It looks great, it plays great, and there's lots of variety. What more could you want?

    Kirby and company are just too damn cute and cheerful. If Smash Bros. piqued your interest, Ultra's your next step.
  3. It's rare for a title to achieve truly universal appeal, but it's hard to think of any gamer who wouldn't enjoy Kirby Super Star Ultra, and with 15 games in one, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal. [Nov 2008, p.100]
  4. Nintendo puts a lot of care and attention into its handheld ports and remakes, and Kirby Superstar has aged very well over the years.
  5. With all the small issues asides, Kirby Super Star Ultra is still a magnificent title.
  6. 90
    Kirby fans and lovers of the platform genre in general should certainly not miss out.
  7. Kirby Super Star Ultra is really just an enhanced port of an old game, but that doesn't mean it's bad. It's actually quite good.

    An excellent upgrade to an already awesome classic Super Nintendo title. This time around, the compilation includes all the games andAn excellent upgrade to an already awesome classic Super Nintendo title. This time around, the compilation includes all the games and mini-games from the SNES release along with even more new games (Including one starring Meta Knight) and mini-games than before! The graphics and audio have been updated from the original release and new features have been added, there is also new music tracks, bonus video clips and even more bosses that where not in the original version. You can play this game multiplayer by using two game cards and a download play demo with minigames and Spring Breeze but both players have to share one DS screen. With all the high quality content crammed into one cartridge along with multiplayer support, any fan of Kirby should not pass up this amazing compilation. Full Review »

This is one Kirby game that will not disappoint any in terms of length. The partner system is unnecessary and makes the game even easier. Just the same, it is appreciated for its two player capability. With a wide variety of powers and multiple ways to use each, it is easy to forgive the game for erring on the easy side of things.
