5.0 out of 5 stars Excellence in an otherwise unfortunate industry, November 3, 2010

This review is from: Kirby's Epic Yarn (Video Game)
I love video games. I work in the video game industry. So with those two caveats out the door, and regardless of if you believe either (not my problem) I will give the short and sweet things that make this title fantastic.

The emotion it breeds in you is one of comfort and genuine happiness. Titles like this are exemplars of how games can be a fantastic artistic medium (and I'm not saying that just because it is cute, Bioshock is a fine example on the uglier end).

The story is told in a great children's book manner.
The characters are incredibly approachable even though they are all made of a few strands of string.
The levels of creative in ways that is often not seen outside of the indie scene.
The storyline is simple and yet you still want to see how it ends.
The gameplay is easy but still engaging enough to keep you playing from end to end, the level of stress this game produces is freakishly low.

If you play this thing late at night it can quite literally put you to sleep. I'm not saying that as a negative, it's that perfectly bound up. It aims to create a "dreamworld" and leaves you unconscious with a wii controller in your lap.

I can be a cynic at times, some titles leave me utterly in awe at how terrible they are. I wonder if the developers had ever even played the title they developed.

But this...I can say with the utmost certainty that if you buy this, you will enjoy it, the odds of you not liking it are so fantastically slim that I would nearly bet money on it.

Nearly ;).

I think you were looking for a FPS. There are plenty out.
