Kirby's Epic Yarn

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I have to admit that Kirby’s Epic Yarn was a disappointment for me. I played this at E3 in the year of our Lord 2010, and was very excited about it. Fast forward to when I could afford the game, and the novelty had passed. Maybe if I was reviewing it six months ago, the outcome would be different.

Kirby's Epic Yarn (Wii)

2 May 2011
  • Excerpt: One day, Kirby is enjoying a peaceful walk through Dream Land, and spots a strange looking tomato, which turns out to be a magical one called a Metamato. As he sucks it in a strange new villain, Yin-Yarn, tries to interrupt him and fails.
  • Pros: Excellent 2D artistic style; fabulous music; very high quality storybook voice acting; heartwarming story, and game, all around
  • Cons: If you die, there is very little punishment, as you just lose some beads (like coins); not overly challenging, especially in the early part of the game; short if you do not collect everything

Kirby's Epic Yarn

1 May 2011
  • Summary: When Kirby's Epic Yarn was announced, many people thought Nintendo was stringing us along, that the game would be poorly stitched together or otherwise patchy. A 2D platformer with a cute gimmick runs the risk of being threadbare, but it would appear that developer Good Feel has it all sewn up.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn Review

Cheat Code Central
20 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Kirby's Epic Yarn is definitely up there with Super Mario Galaxy 2 as a must-have Nintendo game this year. However, what separates Kirby from everyone's red-capped plumber is that there were some serious risks taken with Kirby, and the result is something totally awesome.

Kirby's Epic Yarn Review

12 April 2011
  • Excerpt: I write this as someone who is immune to twee. The tedious, contrarian part of my brain sees cute and screams: It's a PLOY . I look at those adverts with talking cats and hiss: you're a marketing scheme .

Original and beautiful platformer is one of the year's best.

10 April 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Kirby’s Epic Yarn is a creative and original platformer safe for anyone old enough to be able to understand how to play. The youngest players might become a little afraid while facing off against some of the game’s larger monsters, but it’s not exactly the stuff of...
