In recent years, Kirby has had quite a few rather interesting outings that took everything we came to expect from his games and threw them out the window for a number of unorthodox directions. He was racing on stars, he was turned into yarn and thrown into an adventure comprised entirely of crafting supplies sans trademark enemy copying, and most recently he's been split into ten versions of himself and controlled only with stylus. While those (and a few other radical departure games for Kirby) were actually pretty excellent in their own right, it's great to see the adorable pink puffball return, not only to Dreamland, but to his roots (there are lots of "return" puns here. I make no apologies for them, or for the fact that this is a "long" review, get ready). This is Kirby at his purest, most concentrated traditional "Kirbiness" in years, and that alone makes this a fantastic game. However, even without looking at that aspect alone, this game is amazing on its own.

The story in Kirby's Return To Dreamland is simple, but functional. An alien has crash landed on Pop Star, and due to some truly good Samaritan impulses, Kirby and the gang decide to help their new extraterrestrial friend rebuild his ship. The story plays out in typical Kirby fashion, that being extremely charming (near cotton candy vomit inducing, and for once I mean that in a good way), and never gets in the way of why you and I pick up a Kirby title to begin with: gameplay and style.

This Kirby platformer is sickeningly cute, and fun as all heck, especially with more than 1 player. Multiplayer plays like Kirby superstar/ultra meaning the secondary player assist without having to worry about dying which is perfect for an adult who wants to game with a younger person. It's not really difficult (it IS a Kirby title) so I'm sure nobody will be frustrated. It's also very colorful and detailed and the overall presentation is great. Basically it's a return to Kirby's roots, so expect nothing more or less.

I've read many reviews stating that this game is too simple, too easy, and almost pale in comparison to previous Kirby games. My guess it that these reviewers played through the first handful of levels simply so they could write their review and get their paycheck. I waited until I finished this game to give a full review. That was a good idea.

This game features traditional Kirby platforming, which includes jumping, sucking, floating, copying powers...all the stuff you'd expect. I must say that this has never been done better. Kirby is an extremely fun character to be, as he has endless ways of interacting with the environment and enemies around him. This versatile arsenal of moves and attacks comes at an odd game play sacrific; Kirby is too powerful for the enemies around him. Until you hit world 5, there will be times when you're ditching copy abilities because you're getting bored of being able to demolish everything in your path so easily. It takes away from the game play, and it's a bit of a shame, for the final few levels raise the difficulty quite a bit and show you how much fun the game can be when the bar is raised.

Don't dismiss this as a simple children's game; there's depth and detail found here that makes it a respectable title. You'll have to play the game quite a bit before things get interesting, but it is worth it. The game is a solid length and has a ton of extras to unlock and master. Beat it once and you unlock a more difficult version of the main adventure (which should have been the definitive form of the adventure in the first place).

The reason most Kirby fans will be disappointed with this game is a funny one.

I remember playing Kirby games on my NES. The game play was amazing back then and the games were ahead of their time. This is the same game play and quality but with upgraded graphics. You'll recognize all the same aspects as in the previous games. You can inhale and swallow enemies, steal their powers, fly, float, swim and slide your way through a dizzying map of worlds and characters. There are the familiar bosses you fight at the end of each stage. If you were a fan of Kirby before, you'll love this game.

I have never played Kirby before. This is really a fun game, its not real hard,and then there are places that are more of a challenge,and makes a person want to achieve getting through the game. Its really what game playing should be. Would I recommend Kirby, you bet,this little guy can be come anything in the game.

My daughter loves this game. I grew up playing Kirby only on the Super Nintendo so when I played this with her the first time it took me a moment to get use to using the Wii remote, but it didn't take long to get the hang of it. I think it's fun too, and does justice to the classic Kirby games. It's fun but also kind of challenging at different parts. One thing we enjoy about it is how one player is Kirby and the other can choose to be Waddle Dee, Meta Night, King Dedede or yellow Kirby. The point of the game is to help a little guy (Whose name I forget, sorry) repair his ship. You have to find missing parts-which you get by defeating the boss in different lands. You also have to find hidden gears throughout regular levels to unlock fun skill challenge doors. Each door gives Kirby a power (Such as whip) and you collect coins using that power through an obstacle course. You get as many coins as you can in the time limit they set. At the end of each level they do this thing where you shoot Kirby on a slingshot up onto some clouds. The better you shoot, the higher he goes. If you get him high enough they give you bonus stars. If you collect enough bonus stars it'll open more bonus rooms where you can play mini games (Like throwing at a moving target.) Overall I think it's a great game with a lot to do.
