  1. With fantastic level designs, great enemies and power-ups, as well as the addition of some fun and entertaining multiplayer modes, Kirby is a must have.

    My point is this: Kirby good. Me like. You buy. All happy. [Jan 2003, p.122]
  3. The extreme fun will end with a short trek but you'll get true gaming bliss during the process.

    Better than most platformers out there...The only beef we have with this title is that it's too dang short. [Spring 2003, p.35]
  5. The execution of NID is spot on – you can't fault it for any control issues or presentation – and it's totally inoffensive and suitable for kids.

    Unless you want a mega-dose of pink cotton candy, you'll likely be bored stiff.

    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.

    Awesome selection, maybe not as good as Kirby Super Star. Still, great game.

    The very many power ups and unique level design keep the gameplay fresh as you blast through the game.

Beating the game is a little too easy, but at least getting 100% completion is more of a challenge. Expand

    All kirby games are the same, which makes this one incredibly boring and the easy bosses add to its boringness.
