Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Kirby was in line for a Wii game years before we finally saw Kirby's Epic Yarn , a platformer that turned Nintendo's adorable pink puffball into colored string and changed the series' formula considerably. Interestingly, Kirby's Epic Yarn was not the game Nintendo has promised for all those years -- it was originally an all-new concept that Kirby had been retroactively inserted into.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: With brilliantly imaginative games like Canvas Curse, Epic Yarn and Mass Attack, the Kirby series has proven that it can re-invent itself and pull it off successfully every time. But what about classic Kirby? Aside from Squeak Squad on DS, there hasn't been a traditional Kirby on consoles for more than a decade. Kirby's Return to Dream Land was worth the wait though – it's a perfect example of how to update a classic and do everything right.
  • Pros: Classic Kirby gameplay, over-the-top super abilities, Beautifully detailed animations, Playing with friends
  • Cons: When friends steal your power-ups, Seeing Kirby get hurt, Facing the final boss without friends

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Kirby’s Return to Dreamland is a colorful, family-friendly game with content and a level of difficulty suitable for nearly the whole family. The Entertainment Software Ratings Board has stamped the game with an E10+ rating and cites mild cartoon violence, but this may be a little high.

  • Conclusion: Kong to Yoshi and Link, each new Nintendo gaming system has featured classic character appearances in new titles on the new respective Nintendo system, and selling millions of units of games doing so. Another one of those old-school characters is the pink and plushy, marshmallowy morphing Kirby, who first appeared on the SNES but has since bounced his ball-shaped way onto more than 20 titles since then.

Kirby's Return to Dreamland

Gamer Limit
14 November 2011
  • Excerpt: It’s been a very exciting few years for Kirby fans.  Last year brought us the charming and innovative Kirby’s Epic Yarn , and just recently the equally inventive Kirby Mass Attack landed on the DS.  It would be inaccurate to call the more traditional Kirby’s Return to Dreamland a ‘return’ to its roots, since the game went through a very tumultuous development after initially being proposed once Kirby 64 was released.

  • Conclusion: Kirby's Return to Dreamland is not a bad game, but feels like something Nintendo made as an afterthought. If players really want a new 2D platformer this holiday season, there are better alternatives yet to come.

  • Excerpt: Kirby's Return to Dreamland is the second Kirby installment for Nintendo this year. However, unlike recent Kirby titles, Return to Dreamland follows more traditional Kirby routes. Kirby's Return to Dreamland hosts a highly reminiscent flare of classic Kirby titles. The gameplay, graphics, and music will strike a familiar chord with Kirby fans. Return to Dreamland places Kirby back in his home planet of Pop Star.
