Kid Icarus: Uprising
Amazing soundtrack, fun gameplay, lots to do.
To start this all off, I just want to say that I am IN LOVE with the soundtrack for this game. The music is extremely well done. When I first picked up this game, I was a bit skeptical to be honest. I had heard that people do not like the controls, saying that they are too buggy. After playing it for a couple hours, I can say that I have gotten plenty used to the controls. I do agree they were a bit odd at first (touchy), but after adjusting the settings (sensitivity, stop speed, etc), I have no problem playing the game at all. The gameplay itself is awesome. I do enjoy Air battles more than Land battles, but that's just me. I really like how many different weapons there are, and that you can pick the ones that fit your playstyle. I have not played much multiplayer yet, but it looks like it will be a lot of fun, with the ability to earn weapons to take back to the solo play mode. The inclusion of some side minigames was a good idea too. I enjoy the “treasure hunt” system, giving you a sort of “achievement” and reward system. I also really like the “Fiend’s Cauldron”, allowing you to adjust the difficulty (scaling the rewards with it). Some people complain about the graphics of this game, but it doesn’t bother me. The visuals are engaging enough that I don’t realize any imperfections people like to point out. The dialog is also quite entertaining, causing me to actually laugh out loud a couple times. It seems like the game will have quite a bit of lasting appeal with the inclusion of a multiplayer mode, and with the ability to hunt down powerful weapons. If you were like me and were a bit on the fence about getting this game, don’t be. Just go out, get it, and enjoy the heck out of it!
This game, is honestly the best thing since Pokemon, Mega-man, and Digimon. I was so disappointed when I found out they weren't going to make a sequel to this! The game is original in the sense of gameplay, but at the same time allows new aspects such as fusing weapons in order to make stronger ones. Plus, the graphics were unbelievable even in 2D! You need to play this game if you're an anime fan or if you played the original kid icarus. Again, I am hugely disappointed that they're not going to make a sequel to this.
Not at all what I expected
I got this game because of all the hype building up for it. I never played the original game and I was expecting a good first party game from Nintendo. However, once I got it it was horribly not suited to my style. I like video games because they have either really good storylines, strategy, and exploration as a part of them. With Kid Icarus Uprising, I got a game where you fly around or walk around in a confined space not able to explore the world around you. The controls were really hard to manage and I just got bored of it after a couple of days. To this day it sits in my cabinet collecting dust. I have no idea why there isn't a price drop. I honestly just don't understand this game. Basically you go around in a confined space shooting or hitting enemies and getting some type of points for it at the end. The only cool part about the game is that you can merge weapons together and get some cool combinations. If Nintendo decided to ever add to the series they should make some serious changes starting with where you can explore around and go as you like. Some people love the game. I don't understand it. Read some other reviews and if it sounds like something you would enjoy, by all means try it out.
This game plays great and leaves you in control the entire time. For any one looking for a fun game they can play drop and then pick up the story again without much struggle this is it!
This game is one of the best in the 3DS library. First of all, the control is great and if you are left handed you can get a circle pad pro for twenty bucks. Second, the story mode and multiplayer really kept me playing and wanting more. I really felt that you could like the characters and that they had lots of personality. The game has a variety of weapons, and you can customize your character in multiplayer. This has to be my favorite 3DS game yet. If you don't have this game, what are you waiting for?! P.S. , Nintendo should release a DLC for this game...
Wasnt sure at first but i love this game!
I finally got a 3DS three years after they had came out. I have always been a nintendo fan and grew up with my SNES and N64 before going off to the handhelds. Since then ive been a handheld nintendo fan! I did not have any games for my 3DS as i had some DS games but one day i strolled down to Gamestop to look for some used games. I talked with one of the employees who seemed fairly nice. I picked up Pokemon Rumble Blast and also Kid Icarus caught my eye. I knew of Pit from Smash Brothers but did not know (until i played the game) this was based of a 80s game! He promised me that i would love it and if not to give him a call and he would help me find another game i would enjoy. Four months later? Im totally addicted to this game! I love how cute Pit is, and defeating Medusa and Hades. Trying to get up in the higher difficulties and love how there are other places to explore and mini-bosses to beat when your difficulty is higher. Gives each level another reason to explore! 10/10 for this game!
I HATE IT
So hard a boring the most worst game ever I hate it I sold it DO NOT GET THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the best shooting 3ds game i ever played
This is the best 3ds shooting game i have ever played this is the favorite game that i got for christmas
KI:U is the perfect 3DS before Luigi's Mansion. A Package containing a holder, Ar Cards, and a download code! Plot is A Little twisted, And the dialogue would make me put my name on all 3 files.118 weapons in all of the game. 12 in each category. 9 categories. The only thing that bothered me was the unlocking to acquire a weapon. But otherwise, A Good edition to your collection.
A very sophisticated game
Well to put it in brief terms: You have the fully orchestrated sound track, the insane gameplay difficulty that would make it implicatively a rated M game.. I mean with the level of violence.ha ha! But with a story that is full of Greek mythology ( HUGE FAN) it becomes a interesting tale that takes humorous and incredible turns. But aside from that I praise this work for having great content and similar setup to Smash Bros brawl which was what I immediately noticed the first time I played the game. I lot of content to make you say "I will try this again" or "eeeyeah I will come back to this". It challenged me until I became frustrated.With it's provoking gameplay you can only appreciate it only after you complained to yourself how unfair the Reaper's Hideout was. I can say more but I said enough. This has to be one of the most valuable titles to have on the 3ds.
