    It's not a good game at all. It's just dumb.

    This game's graphics are pretty good, but the sounds are downright atrocious! The controls are fine, but the sounds are downright atrocious! Don't play this unless you worship Kirby.

    This game is possibly the worst thing I have ever played. Don't buy it ever. It is just a piece of crap. I still wonder why people pay so much for it on Ebay. I burned mine in a bonfire. NEVER EVER PLAY THIS GAME. its just dumb. Who wants a side-scroller on a 3-D system??

  1. The only knock on the game is that it is not particularly lengthy when compared to a behemoth like "DK64."
  2. Whatever the reasons may be, just rent Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, ignore any qualms about difficulty or length and for the few days you have it proceed to bask in the glow of great fun emanating from your TV screen.
  3. Simple, enemy-inhaling fun that's accessible but won't hold your attention for very long.
