    Unless you want a mega-dose of pink cotton candy, you'll likely be bored stiff.
  2. Unfortunately though we can't really see Kirby's latest adventure lasting anybody for particularly long, multiplayer games and secret hunting notwithstanding.
  3. While it's admittedly too easy and a little simplistic in structure (albeit with plenty of extras to unlock), it's nevertheless ideal for young ones or anyone looking for an easy-going few hours.
  4. Kirby is over far too quick, but it's a decent romp while it lasts, and one that I wouldn't mind playing through again.
  5. A short-lived romp through vibrant, sugary sweet worlds that will leave players -- much like its pink protagonist -- with an insatiable hunger for more.
  6. 60
    It's a short run-through -- especially if you don't seek out the secrets -- and probably won't test the skills of experienced gamers.

    This game made my sweet ass vegan body sweat because of its beauty. The design of levels and bosses is beyond amazing and made me drop tearsThis game made my sweet ass vegan body sweat because of its beauty. The design of levels and bosses is beyond amazing and made me drop tears when Kirby finally stuck the star rod into the fountain of dreams to bring back the dreams to dreamland. Even the mini games made my pubescent little dick rise higher than Bill Gates pile of money when Kirby drifted to victory on his pimp ass star cart. Full Review »
