    HAL Laboratory have developed an adventure with amazing puzzles, exporations, unlockables and bonuses. Everyone with a Nintendo DS ought to own this game.

    This is delicious game design, and a fitting sendoff for a device that forced game-makers to think in unusual ways.

    Kirby Mass Attack rewards you for replaying it many times over, with several impressively polished mini-games (my favorites being the RPG and pinball ones), big fruit bonuses, and very frequent references to past Kirby titles.

    Lacks Nintendo's usual grace, but the sheer amount of ideas easily makes up for it. [Dec 2011, p.79]

    Its stylus control is one of the tightest on the system. [Christmas 2011, p.117]

    Mass Attack is a game of invention, wit, and leftfield surprises, in other words, and it all adds up to a near-perfect send off for Nintendo's aging DS. Kirby may not be getting any cuter, but if he continues to star in adventures like this, he can be sure of his place alongside the likes of Mario and Zelda for years to come.

    It's sad to see that Kirby this time around has lost so much of his former playfulness. The varied arsenal of creative attacks has shrunk down to a pathetic gang fight where the player plays the passive role of a bystander. The game never offers a proper challenge, and even though the visuals and audio are heavily 16-bit-inspired and charming, Kirby Mass Attack never really makes you want to keep playing.

The game is a blast to play, and it's especially rewarding to unlock all the music, and mini games. If you enjoy platformers with a touch of cuteness then you need to own this game. I also give it a 10 because well it is an amazing game. :) Expand

    Ever since I played Kirby's Return to Dreamland on the Wii, handheld traditional Kirby games just didn't seem up to par with me so I decidedEver since I played Kirby's Return to Dreamland on the Wii, handheld traditional Kirby games just didn't seem up to par with me so I decided to try out Kirby's more unique experiences and since Mass Attack was the latest entry and as far as I know, received raving reviews, I gave it a shot and I'm super happy I did. I typically don't care for touch screen exclusive games, but Kirby's Mass Attack does it in a very fun way that's similar to Pikmin and Little King's Story. The visuals are cute and colorful and the sound/music is great. I haven't finished it yet, but I'm having loads of fun playing it. Expand

The ingenious puzzles are fun to solve, and the sharp graphics are nice. The best thing about this game is its challenge (your BOUND to die at least ONCE in this game) and the unlockable Extras. Ranging from vertical-scrolling shooter Strato Patrol EOS to the pinball-esque Kirby Brawlball, the Extras could be made into seperate games in their own right. This title is not to be missed. Expand
