Excerpt: Kirby’s Adventure Wii actually had to be released somewhere in 2005 for GameCube, but that didn’t happen. Now the game has been transformed into a Wii version and it’s released to fill up a quiet release period.
Conclusion: Kirby's Adventure was one of the premiere titles on the Nintendo Entertainment System, and one that pushed the console to its limits. With colorful vibrant graphics, a fantastic and bubbly soundtrack, and simple, yet challenging gameplay, it was a perfect follow up to Kirby's Dream Land on the Game...
Conclusion: Although Kirby’s Adventure Wii lacks the dazzling visual inventiveness of Epic Yarn, its chunky, vibrant look is never less than charming, and is complimented by a style of play that eschews challenge for a subtly enveloping comfort blanket of Nintendo delight.
Conclusion: However, it is surprise how lacking Kirby's latest effort is when it comes to ambition. After managing to bounce back with the beautiful Epic Yarn on Wii, and the innovative Mass Attack on DS, it's back to basics in Kirby's Adventure Wii . It's basic platforming without any new twist.
Pros: Easy to learn, family oriented, almost no Wiimote waving.
Cons: Low ambitions, boring mini games, lack of variation.
Summary: Time has done nothing to dull the charms of this late-NES masterpiece. Kirby's Adventure is as vibrant, imaginative and fun today as it was twenty years ago; yes, we just made ourselves feel very old by typing that sentence.
Excerpt: Kirby's Adventure Wii sees Kirby returning to his roots and proudly reasserting himself as a classic Nintendo platform hero. It's a gimmick-free return to the themed worlds of Pop Star, each one containing a number of stages capped with an eventual boss fight.
