Kirby's Star Stacker (Game Boy) review

An inovative and diffinitely a different type of Kirby game. Capture the stars with you friends, in a tetris style way. This was the point of the game, and the beggining it was fun and maybe a little addicting, but for a puzzle game is is dissapointing.

GRAPHICS (4/10): It's a puzzle game, so graphics matter. Not really, and that is good for this game. The screens are fairley blah and not much too them, although stars that come shooting down do not look to bad, however it is still kinda depressing.

SOUND (4/10): The music isn't that bad, except there is only one track throughout the entire Kirby Starstacker experience. The sound effects are not bad either, but the sound of blocks falling and dissapearing may get annoying.

GAMEPLAY (26/55): This is definitely a below average gameplay, but truthfully it could've been worse. The idea was good, trap stars by surrounding them by Rick, Coo, or Kane. Try to get multiple catches at once, and stars coming shooting down. After a certain amount of stars are collected you move on to the next level. This wasn't that bad of thinking, except it is not as fun as it sounds. It gets boring fast, and it doesn't pull you in and force you to keep playing. I just was not thrilled with Kirby StarStacker, a good idea, just not used correctly.

REPLAYABILITY (10/20): Where a puzzle game can become a legend. Kirby Starstacker, however, comes far short from the plateau Arkanoid had created for the puzzle genre. There are many modes of difficulty to try and keep you keep playing, and once you unlock the last one, there is like a million levels. This game might keep you intrigued for awhile, but definitely not forever, and at one point or another it will go away in your college.

DIFFICULTY (3/5): It is way too easy in the beggining. Until you get to the insane difficulty the game is a joke. However the insane difficulty is pretty good in the beggining, until it reaches an unbeatable plateu. So the difficulty is either too easy, or too hard except for a few places.

OVERALL (47/100): It is not that bad of a game, except it could've been much better. The idea was very good, and in principal Kirby StarStacker could've been a puzzle classic, but it was not. It seemed rush, and the idea just didn't keep you pulled in for that long. Not that bad of a game, but I would not reccomend you to buy it!

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic St...

Jak II was one of those experience that every gamer either absolutely loved or completely loathed. The game strayed from everything the first Jak game stood for, in that it took a much serious outlook, and it based itself more on the GTA series, that it's own original concept. Jak III does not change any of that, as it...

Jak II (PlayStation 2)

Jak and Daxter was a platforming game based on exploration, simple fight patterns, cool minigames, and lush colorful scenery. All that has changed in Jak II, for no longer is the Jak series perfect for kids of all ages and instead this game is only a little less intense version of Grand Theft Auto.
