Kirby must travel through an assortment of levels, battling an exotic array of enemies (both new and familiar) determined to stop him from completing his mission. Always armed with his trusty ability to swallow enemies and gain special attacks, Kirby can also unite with some of his animal friends and make use of their particular talents. Featuring detailed graphics, challenging boss battles and the distinct charm of a Kirby game, it's no wonder this title is considered a classic. Expand

    You have to go into this game knowing that it is made for kids. Knowing that, what this game has going for it most is charm. The colorfulYou have to go into this game knowing that it is made for kids. Knowing that, what this game has going for it most is charm. The colorful pastels, cute graphics, animals, and adorable kirby as well, this is just an adorable game. While the game play is not difficult, you may have to play through a stage a few times before you solve the puzzle. it is fun to explore the different powers you can get with the different animals. While some powers are utterly useless, such as making a hot air balloon with ChuChu the octopus, that bizarreness right there should be enough for you to want to try this game out. It is not the best game out there by far, but its charm makes it stand out and worth a shot. Expand

A fun game overall, Kirby's Dream Land 3 struggles in gameplay and level design, which both do not quite live up to Kirby standards. The amount of copy abilities seems slightly small, even with the added friend transformations. I personally preferred the friend system with the original 3 friends as opposed to 6, which I feel is too many (although I did grow quite fond of Nago the cat). The heart-star collection aspect of the game seemed forced and very cryptic as well. This is in no way a bad game though. Where Kirby's Dream Land 3 excels is in its visuals, music, and overall charm. The graphics are some of the nicest and most unique I've ever seen in a SNES game, and everything has a nicely blended look to it. The music is excellent, although not always very "Kirby like", and there is always something captivating and unique about it. Lastly the charm of Kirby's Dream Land 3, in my opinion, surpasses that of any other Kirby game. It has a personality in itself that is a product of the combined visuals, music, characters, etc. It is definitely not the best Kirby game, nor the best Kirby's Dream Land, but it is a true kirby game nonetheless, and I still very much enjoyed it (especially the added cameos from games such as Metroid and Gyromite).

I do like this game. Though it can get rather boring. It is a very good looking game, It Goes for a hand drawn style. Which i like. The control is the same as other games, Gameplay is your typical Kirby game. Though it is pathetically easy. I recommend it to you kids and Kirby fans Expand
