Summary: I am not really a video game player. In fact I tend to avoid video games at all cost because I tend to find them boring as well as painful since I have arthritis in both hands. Kirby's Epic Yarn though is not only fun but easy on my hands. The controls are simple to use, the movements are fun, and overall the game is just adorable. It's appropriate for all ages and since you can advance simply by reaching the end of a level it is not as frustrating for younger players.
If you are looking for a Kirby Game, look elsewhere.

Summary: I think that this game would have been better if it was not labeled as a Kirby game. It has rave reviews about the gameplay and the like, but I do not like the stark deviation from the Kirby formula. If this was released as a different IP, then I think I might have enjoyed it; but as it stands, I don't think that it's a solid entry in the series.
Summary: This Kirby game is great! My boys are 4 and 6 and they are just getting into playing Wii. We are not "gamers" but this game is perfect because it's not too difficult and the levels are fairly easy to beat. It is also awesome that there is the 2 player option. The music in the game is very nice too; not irritating and annoying like some can be.
Summary: Game type: Side-scrolling 2D Platformer This game was tailor-made for the sewers and quilters of the world, for the fabric lovers and the deft weavers. And what a fun and delightful game it is, easy enough for almost anyone but packed with so much to collect for the completest that they'll spend a lot of hours traveling through the cotton folds trying to obtain everything. And it is endlessly inventive and fantastically creative.
Summary: a beautiful game that long time/hardcore kirby fans will overall hate a slower paced, easy game you cant die in that's also super short 6 hours played straight though if your not into collecting things or going for high scores this game is a must avoid even at a reduced price
Excerpt: I have played a lot of kirby in my life and I have to say besides Super Mario Kirby has to be my favorite game series. It's just so exciting,so wonderful,so so awesome! Kirby's epic yarn includes new elements of gameplay than other kirby games like you probably know he now turns into yarn and has different abilities and his surroundings are all so homemade looking and awesome in an kirby kind of way.
Pros: Challenging, Cute, Easy to learn, Fun To Play, Good Audio, Graphics, Kid Appropriate, Multiplayer
