I picked this up, expecting a clumsy Star Fox-y experience and a few hours of entertainment. I was very wrong.

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.

This is a great game for so many reasons. The gameplay is very fun and amazing. The visual and sounds are top notch, and the game is very customizable in regarding a person's preference. You can change the control scheme to your liking in almost every way, but also the game has a difficulty slider that can be used to provide either a causal playthrough or a difficult and rewarding experience. In regards to the controls, it'll take some time to get used to, but you should be okay after the first or second stage. The game divides the fight into flight sections and on foot sections. Flight sections are basically an on rail shooter and are pretty amazing in terms of visuals. The on foot sections are similar to third person shooters and is fun to move around Pit on land, but takes some time to get used to because you have to use the camera which takes time to get used to. Both sections are very fun and great in terms of gameplay, it only takes time to get used the controls that may put some people off. The replay value is crazy good because of the fact that there are many weapons in the game and for those that love to get 100%, it'll you awhile. There are 9 different types of weapons such as blades, staffs, cannons, bows, etc... Each of these of different gameplay attributes that can appease to anyone with a certain playstyle. Close quarter combat, mid range, or long range weapons are here and are all fun to mess around with. On top of buying weapons and finding weapons through playing, there is also an interesting thing called "fusing" where you can combine two weapons that make another weapon that will be a more powerful weapon. Another wrinkle into why this game great. This game has a multiplayer that I only have played little bit, but it was pretty fun.Read more ›

The controls while in the air are pretty good and solid. On the ground it gets messy and annoying. It's something that you can overcome, though and should not stop you from playing this amazing game. You also have a lot of customization options so eventually you'll get it to be more bearable once you get used to how the game works.

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.

I remember back at E3 2010, when the 3DS was being heavily promoted and Kid Icarus Uprising was introduced to the gaming community at large. I included myself amongst the many watching that immediately wanted a 3DS. Now, I own a 3DS and after what seemed forever since I had pre-ordered the game, Kid Icarus Uprising has finally been dropped upon us. Was it worth the wait? Oh heck yeah!

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.
