Kirby's Dream Collection

2 September 2013
  • Summary: My love of Kirby is known far and wide. While the games themselves are incredibly simple, the sheer charm of the titular hero and his colorful world makes for endearing, unforgettable adventures. Kirby has also seen some of the most dramatic changes of any Nintendo franchise -- from the total visual overhaul in Epic Yarn to the ten-Kirby puzzling of Mass Attack , it's a series that's not afraid to be different.

Set of classic kids games may be more fun for older players.

Common Sense Media
16 November 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition is a compilation of six older Kirby games that include mild cartoon violence. Kirby is a pink blob who swallows fantastical enemies to absorb their abilities, so much of the combat is pretty tame. However, he occasionally wields semi-realistic weapons -- including a sword -- and one battle against a giant eye includes reddish damage that could be interpreted as blood.

Kirby’s Dream Collection game review

Boys' Life magazine
26 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Kirby is back! I love this air-sucking, sometimes-floating pink ball with a can-do attitude that just turned 20 years old. If you don’t know a lot about Kirby, I suggest you check out what will probably be the final Wii game before Wii U console comes out: Kirby’s Dream Collection. When you turn on the game (which features six different games), you’ll find a fascinating timeline of all things Kirby.
  • Pros: Six great Kirby games; excellent small book; some new, extra levels.
  • Cons: There should be more games and cartoons.

Kirby's Dream Collection (Wii) - Review

19 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Nintendo has this odd habit of putting Kirby games out on consoles at the end of their life cycles. This usually means that many of Kirby’s games have been skipped or ignored by gamers who have already moved on to the new hotness. So, it is quite fitting that Kirby’s Dream Collection is looking to be the last first party offering for the Wii before the Wii U gets all second screen up in here.

Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition review (WII)

16 September 2012
  • Excerpt: While the classic content doesn’t benefit from the same attention to detail that Nintendo might once have lavished on it, however, there’s some new content that’s quite cool. When you first load up the game, you can check out a special mode that presents a timeline of the franchise. It lets you know what was happening in the world around the time that each title hit stores, and there’s also video of games in the series that weren’t included in this particular collection.

Expert Review

Nintendo Life
30 September 2012
  • Summary: There will inevitably be Kirby fans who will complain that more Kirby games weren't included or that none of the titles got any type of visual makeover, but it's difficult to complain too much given how many amazing Kirby titles have been collected onto one Wii disc, not to mention the fun bonus items and mini games that are also included.
