Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition
Family Friendly Gaming
22 August 2014
Excerpt: I have said it before and I will say it again. I hate when companies expect us to purchase the same games on multiple systems. Especially when they are download only games. Hey I bought it on the NES, I should not have to pay for it again on the Wii, Wii U, 3DS, etc. At the same time I like compilations of older games. Especially when families may have missed many if not all of them in the past.
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.
Conclusion: The lack of extras is disappointing, and Nintendo could have given us more bang for our buck. There’s not much of an excuse for leaving so much out. Kirby has a rich history of games and media. Why not use it?
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: If you’re an old school gamer, Kirby’s Dream Collection is the sort of product that hardly seems like it should even need a review. Anyone who grew up playing Nintendo’s games was bound to run into a title featuring the pink puffball at one point or another, perhaps even several times.
