This game is big. Freaking HUGE, considering its genre. Not really sure where to begin, in fact. I believe I'll leave out everything concerning the storyline, except for this little tidbit: if you are the kind of person who can't stand constant banter while playing, there's an option to turn it off. However, I LIKE the constant banter, it breaks the fourth wall constantly and doesn't take itself seriously, allowing cheesy lines to just work.
EDIT: all this talk about the complexity of the game and I didn't even mention how it looks. Silly me. Anywho, this is easily the most diverse and prettiest game on the 3DS yet. You'd think "aerial battle" would leave little room for variety, but each chapter has constantly shifting environments that go from pretty to trippy to occasionally creepy. Sometimes you will fly gracefully and be able to take in the sights, other times the camera will spin you 360-degrees while ten floating eyeballs fire at you nonstop. Animation is extremely fluid and framerate never drops in single player, with online rarely hiccuping at the 6-player chaos going on. That's all pretty impressive considering I cranked the 3D up at all times.
Well anyway, the game plays like 1/3 Star Fox and 2/3...I dunno how the hell you'd describe it. Super Smash Bros. in three dimensions comes close, as you run around, shoot/swat at anything that lies before your path and dodge projectiles that can (and will) block the entire screen. The air parts are the easiest, as it shares similar-yet-advanced controls with Star Fox 64 3D.Read more ›
It has the highest replay value of any 3DS game I've played yet. There's a lot of modes to play, lots and LOTS of stuff to collect. There's attention to detail in this game.
In short, it's a VERY solid game. Sure, the controls are irritating, especially considering that you should be able to use the Circle Pad Pro for it PROPERLY, but once you get over that hangup, there's an awesome game to explore.
Top 5 3DS game of all time and that is despite the control issue.
First, you gotta praise Project Sora and Nintendo for breathing a new kinda life into a long-beloved but under-appreciated franchise. Kid Icarus has obviously never looked better, and thanks to the 3DS hardware it's really hard to turn away from once you have the game in your hands. However, when reviews began going live and critics started squabbling about the stylus-heavy controls, I got nervous. Being a lefty, I hadn't had the chance to obtain a Circle Pad Pro so I hoped all week long that I'd be able to adjust to the controls without getting completely cramped up.
Now that the game's here, I can say for the most part that my hopes and prayers were answered. Like Game Informer said, this game comes with a plastic stand for a reason: Unless you really plan on playing this game on the go right off the bat, you NEED it. This stand has been a huge relief for me, especially being a lefty. The stand has rubber grips on the bottom so it never slides all over the place unless you get really clumsy with it. There's also space so you can put on headphones and/or charge while playing. yes, it kills the portability, but it's honestly the best way I can think of playing Uprising right now, being a gamer that prefers couch gaming to on-the-go gaming.
Anyway, using the stand I didn't notice any severe cramping.Read more ›
