Kirby's Epic Yarn

  • 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. But somehow I doubt it. We went completely through this game in six hours. Thankfully I only spent twenty dollars on this game. I would be irritate if I had spent fifty.

  • Excerpt: There's no point in trying to make the plot in Kirby's Epic Yarn sound like anything more than it is: another excuse to play a fun game. As the story goes, a magician made out of yarn comes to Dream Land and sucks Kirby into a magical sock. Inside, Kirby finds an entire world that is made of yarn and similar fabrics. That world has been torn apart by the magician, meaning that anyone who might be inclined to help Kirby is in no position to do so.

Kirby's Epic Yarn review

  • Conclusion: While not the 3D Kirby game that has been teased endlessly over more than a decade, Kirby's Epic Yarn nonetheless deserves a spot alongside the best modern Nintendo franchise titles such as Super Mario Galaxy , Metroid Prime and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess . It's been a long time coming, but Kirby's finally caught up to his peers.

  • Excerpt: If it weren't for the forthright charm of Kirby's Epic Yarn, you'd be inclined to carp its blatant brevity. As it stands: cuteness out the yin yang - or Yin Yarn, as the case may be.

  • Summary: Kirby's taken the LittleBigPlanet patchwork aesthetic and discovered brand new ways to turn that jaded gamer frown upside down. But can technical flaws and a lack of difficulty prevent us from drinking the sugary pink Kool-Aid?
  • Pros: It's hard not to smile while playing this adorable, Takes a style that belonged to LittleBigPlanet and makes it its own., Unique worlds merit exploration, plus, there are felt dinosaurs.
  • Cons: Co-op play can get frustrating. Players who venture away from one another can get trapped., Not much of a challenge, After a relatively short campaign, there's not much else to do here.

  • Conclusion: Kirby’s Epic Yarn is a slightly deviatory franchise installment featuring a brilliant new fabric-oriented concept which takes this platforming game beyond the realm of the ordinary. Although sucking up enemies and stealing their powers is not what this game is about, it’s still thoroughly Kirby in nearly every other tangible way.

  • Excerpt: I�ve always thought Kirby has been one of the most ignored Nintendo characters (with the exception of Kid Icarus). He only seems to pop out and say hello in Super Smash Brothers games, as of late. Thankfully, Nintendo has seen fit to give Kirby a new adventure, although a slight departure from his normal outing. Built as a narrative for the younger audience, Kirby has been transported into Patch Land (through a magic sock) by the evil Yin Yarn wizard.
