Summary: I felt like I needed to be 20 years younger to enjoy the game more. Don't get me wrong, I think it's cute and creative with the craft elements, but after a minute of playing it with my gf, we both could tell it's really meant for the younger crowd. Kirby is my favorite character, and I was looking forward to trying this game out. Now that I have, I don't a think I'll play it again. I'll be checking out Dreamland and the 20th anniversary games soon enough, however.
Summary: I've always been a fan of Kirby. Saw this one pop up for $10 so i figured why not... the first half hour or so starts slow, and is so easy its pretty much impossible to lose a life. As the game goes on it gets a little harder but not exactly more interesting, Kirby cannot mimic other monsters, he just grabs them, unties them and turns them into a throwable ball.
Summary: It is a good and fun game. My only thing is that it should be for about 7-10 year olds. I am 14 and i finished it in about a week while still going to school. It was a bit challenging but it would be perfect for a younger child.
Summary: Got this game for my daughter, 12, who had wanted it for Christmas. After playing it with her a little bit, I can see that this is a great introductory game for youngsters, very mild violence, expected challenges. Although she enjoys it, she states that it could be more exciting. Great graphics, nice game for 8-12 year olds.
Kirby's Epic Yarn? More like Kirby's Moderately Satisfying Yarn

Summary: I bought Kirby's Epic Yarn for two reasons on the day it came out, it came with a credit towards a future game purchase and I had heard nothing but good things from the few places I care about ratings online. There are some minor spoilers ahead (no major storyline revealed, just gameplay aspects). Right of the bat, the game's unique visuals grab your attention after the very short introduction to the reason why Kirby is made of yarn.
Summary: First, I'd like to say that I'm wasn't raised on Kirby. I didn't play Kirby until ten years after it was originally released, so I might be less likely to enjoy this title. I'm a Mario and Zelda fan and, as far as I'm concerned, titles like these can do no wrong, so if you don't like those games, it might be wise not to listen to me too much! The graphics were fine--nothing good or nothing bad about them. I thought that the gameplay was a bit weak.
Summary: My 10 year daughter likes this game alot but said it was a bit easy to complete,but is still fun to play.It is great for younger players, when she will let her 6 year old brother play he does struggle a little bit.
Summary: I wouldn't wish to be overly critical...Kirby looks great and there's clearly a lot of invention in the game....but this really is one for the little ones. My daughter (who's 11) isn't a big gamer but she quickly got bored with the lack of any real challenge in the gameplay and the disc has been left to gather dust. So basically it's great for the very wee ones....not so hot if they're on solid food.
