Kirby: Mass Attack
Worth the Money.
I had been waiting for a new Kirby game to come out for the DS since Kirby Super Star Ultra. But Kirby was restrained to the Wii. But then Kirby Mass Attack came along. This game has incredible gameplay, an pretty good storyline, and is just filled with the stuff that makes Kirby awesome. One day, while out in a different planet, Kirby is confronted by a evil Skull thing. He then is split into 10 different copies of himself. And since all the Kirbys only had a 10th of the original Kirby's power, they were easy to defeat. And so Kirby travels across worlds, eventually getting lots of coins. He is confronted by new and old enemies. The controls are easy to understand, and by the time you have all of the Rainbow Coins, you won't be able to put the game down. Overall, this game is worth the money, and lots more money. This game is something I never want to forget playing.
Kirby Mass Attack is a Massive Success
Kirby Mass Attack is another non-traditional Kirby game whose gameplay is controlled entirely with the stylus. While some people may get turned off by this, it works really well (after all, it worked with Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks). The graphics are nice and colorful, as is common for a Kirby game. The sound is also nice and there are many remixed music tracks from the game Kirby Air Ride for the Gamecube. In every level (excluding the bosses), there are anywhere from 3-5 gold medals that will take skill and quick thinking in order to get. By acquiring these medals, silly but fun minigames are unlocked and can be played at any time. On top of that, you will get a bronze, silver or gold ranking based on how many Kirbys survive throughout each stage. Rest assured, there's a a strong amount of replay value in this game as it will take even experienced gamers a while to acquire all the medals and achieve a gold star ranking for each stage. The only downside is that the Kirbys can sometimes be a little unresponsive and may not move or act in the way you want them to. Despite that tiny flaw, this is a fun game that all Kirby fans should check out. It doesn't follow the classic Kirby formula, but it's a fun and addicting game nonetheless.
Had Doubts About Its Overall Idea, But I Was Wrong
Beginning: To start out, I did have doubts about this game. I saw the cover with nothing on it except Kirby: Mass Attack. It sounded like a cool title but I decided to wait. When the official cover came out I had doubts. It had you using the stylus the whole time and I don't usually play those kind of games. I also thought the idea of it wasn't a good idea. They were coming out with Kirby: Return to Dreamland, and I was going to reserve it, but then I asked a guy at GameStop which game he thought was better. Kirby: Return to Dreamland, or The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He said Return to Dreamland would be epic, but Skyward Sword would be legendary. I liked the legendary feeling better and changed my mind. Yeah. But what about Mass Attack? Didn't want any part in the game and didn't think about it. Then for Christmas, I got Kirby: Mass Attack. I was disappointed, but I said "Lets give it a try." I tried the game and found out my assumptions were wrong and it was an amazing game. Let me explain my experience.
Game-play: The gameplay overall was very fun. You had 10 Kirby's and you controlled all of them. You flicked, and attacked. Those were Kirby's main attacks. I liked the idea of using fruit to get more Kirbys. My problem with it was that sometimes not all the Kirby's were alert, and attacking took too long. If you had 10 Kirby's it was quick, but the attacking was sort of a waste of time. I did understand for boss battles though. The whole plot was fresh also.
Graphics: Would've loved it in 3-D, but for this kind of game, side-scrolling is the way to go. They make their graphics like old Kirby games, but there's something that seems different about it. Its revised, new enemies and bosses, and more fun!
Sound: The beginning theme is the most addicting DS theme that I've ever heard! If you listened to it, you'd think the same thing. They returned fun, classic enemy music making it better.
Lasting Appeal: One of the longest games I've ever played on a DS, or should I say the longest! It took me 4 months to get through the game. Challenging. Yes. Levels took like 10 minutes or more to complete. The game does sound easy if you count 4 worlds times 10 stages equals 4 worlds times 10 levels equals 40 levels, then you add 5 stages in world 5 equaling 45 stages which comes out to a total of 450 minutes. Sounds short, but once you complete world 4, you'll see why it took me so long.
Conclusion: Overall, great game and my doubts were wrong. Buy this game because all of the above makes paying $35 for the game worth it!
The game was realy good, I think its adventures and has awsome sounds, it'll last you a while befor you get bored. The only thing I wish the game could do is let you play without the pin. Over all, its a good game.
One thing I really wish this game had was to be able to use the real controls instead of the stylus but other wise it was great! The story is scary and fun and I had a great time playing it! It lasted me a while and was very entertaining. This game's difference from previous games is good and the game is still true to Kirby's origin. Love it! :D
fun, very fun
it was a fun game. the controls are not bad but i wish i could use the control pad instead of the stylus. i started playing it but it got boring after a while . it is not that addicting. either way it was fun, very fun.
This game is great. But sometimes it gets to hard for me, and a little bit to repetitive.
Ten kirby's stand a better chance than one!
In this action-packed game, with multiple kirby's, ten kirby's face an adventure to become 1 kirby again. This action-packed game is also filled with awesome unlockable extras! AMAZING!
One of the best and last DS games
A lot of replay value in this game with all the mini-games and medals that you are challenged to collect. This game looks cute but is challenging once you get to later levels. The use of 10 kirbys adds strategy and can make some creative puzzles throughout the game. Also, do not be driven away with the idea of moving with touch controlls. The use of touch controls is utilized very well and makes controlling 10 characters possible, quick, and smooth. This is a must buy for any DS owner.
A great game with some flaws.
I'll just get to the point. Kirby Mass Attack is a great game overall. It has a great idea behind it, but with some clumsy controls. I personally don't like the Kirbys' AI, which is comparable to Pikmin, as they tend to get stuck behind walls they can very easily go around. This can be a bit of a problem when dealing with the game's many puzzles and hazards. While the it's quite fun at times, it can also be very challenging. I prefer to play the sub-games unlockable by collecting medals which, in my opinion, out-rank the main game itself.
