Summary: Kirby's Return to Dream Land is a side-scrolling adventure game where you can play on your own or with up to three of your friends. Kirby, in his many guises, is in control of the infamous foursome. Help him use his powerful Copy ability to inhale, spit or transform as enemies rise to the challenge.
Conclusion: In designing everything around the delightful textiles of Patch Land, co-developers HAL and Good-Feel have ensured that Kirby’s latest and greatest transcends any concerns of style being prioritised over substance – the substance of Epic Yarn is in the style. There are other, equally fine, games for those looking to test their co-ordination, or bathe in the rays of nostalgia.
Excerpt: Like Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow , Kirby’s Epic Yarn bears little resemblance to the series it claims to continue. Shadow ’s flimsy connection was merely in letting you play as a Belmont descendent. In Epic Yarn , similarly, you control the titular doughy pink puff, but he lacks his hallmark abilities: no gobbling up enemies and absorbing their powers, no flying, and no inhaling. This malarkey is dealt with early on, and hinges on the charming arts-and-crafts visuals.
Summary: Kirby staat opnieuw volop in het spotlicht van Nintendo. Eerder gingen we al aan de slag met Epic Yarn en Mass Attack, maar beide games brachten niet de klassieke Kirby tot leven. Dat wil Nintendo deze keer wel bereiken met Kirby's Adventure Wii waarin de roze stofzuiger zich volop mag uitleven in een gloednieuw avontuur.
Pros: Klassieke gameplay, Multiplayer, Extra’s
Cons: Iets te weinig uitdaging, Rare multiplayerkeuzes
