And damn, is Kirby ever slow. Youíve got to double-tap a direction on the d-pad just to make him bolt at an adequate pace, and even then thereís the unwavering sense that heís wading through invisible mashed potatoes."

Itís just that trademark stability that motivates my purchase. No Kirby games have let me down thus far, and as you can already guess from this blatant presentation, this one bears no exceptions. "

ratking says: "It will probably take me the same amount of time write this game, as I did to beat the game. Ok, it's not that bad, but it is short and way to easy. Of course this seems to be the story of all Kirby games. However this game is really fun while it lasts, and puts a few innovative things into Kirby without changing the game. "
