    My second favorite Kirby game!! I give it a 10. The game play is cool and Flagship really did it this time: THEY HAVE OVERLOADED MY SYSTEM WITH GRATITUDE! THIS GAME MAY HAVE YOU CONFUSED AND LOST SOMETIMES, AND THE LAST BOSS MAY BE KIND OF HARD, BUT IT'S AWESOME! BUY IT NOW!

    This is one of the great Kirby games in my opinion.It had tons of playable hours and so many places to explore.A must play for any Kirby fan.Had a decent replay value with unlocking all the areas and getting all the treasure chests.Enough to keep you into the game for awhile.The only downside of the game is the easiness of the bosses.Most of them hardly challenge you.You get more of aThis is one of the great Kirby games in my opinion.It had tons of playable hours and so many places to explore.A must play for any Kirby fan.Had a decent replay value with unlocking all the areas and getting all the treasure chests.Enough to keep you into the game for awhile.The only downside of the game is the easiness of the bosses.Most of them hardly challenge you.You get more of a challenge with the normal areas.A small flaw non the less.The controls are about the same as any other Kirby game and the visuals are bright and colorful.One of my favorite parts is the great soundtracks in the game.It keeps you going through the long time exploring.If you have never played this game before I highly recommend it.

    There a select number of people who don't like this game and I don't understand why. I enjoyed the 'Metroidvania' style of exploration and progression and the controls handle well. The graphics are very colorful too. As far as actual gameplay goes, it plays like most other Kirby games.

Anyway, this game deserves some more attention and love as it is usually overshadowed by other Kirby games, but it's great game nonetheless. 9/10 Expand

  1. 9 / 10 / 9 / 8 - 36 platinum [Vol 798; 2 Apr 2004]
  2. Has Kirby on the right track and, for the first time in years, starts to evolve the series. It just doesn't quite live up to its ambitions. [Nov 2004, p.118]
  3. It's no Super Mario World, but compared to its predecessors this game is huge...finally, Kirby has a game he can be proud of. [June 2004, p.122]
