The best of the Kirby games
7 January 2017 | by jwwalrath-227-85487See all my reviews

Hands down my favorite Kirby game. Rather than being one long game, it is split into several allowing a lot of difference in format between the games. This would be the last Kirby game directed by Masahiro Sakurai whose games like Smash Bros. and Kid Icarus have always had a unique flair to them. No Kirby game is as robust and detailed as this one. There are some very creative parts, such as an RPG villain boss fight and and a space shooter homage fight. Always liked how you could create a partner in this.A second player can even play your partner. Excellent music and vibrant, color graphics. Mini-games are simple but fun.
