Kirby Star Allies – Nintendo Switch

Time for a video game review!

Kirby games are simple and relaxing.. With beautiful levels, nice music, and a colorful atmosphere.. This game has all that plus some! While yes, it seems easy at times (if you don’t add as many allies it’s much harder) I still found it fun.. My wife and I had a better time with just us and no CPU players.. With us and two CPU players, we had earned over 29 extra lives in the first world! Second world was just as easy so we stopped making allies and played as just us.. it got much harder then..

Another thing to point out is the similar world’s folks keep complaining about.. Kirby, like Sonic, and like platforming Mario’s to an extent, always recyle the world’s.. it’s what makes them special!! While the worlds and zones are the same, Nintendo always does a great job making them unique game after game!

Where this game shines is couch multiplayer!! While the switch has been advertised as a multiplayer machine, the star games for the switch aren’t really multiplayer!! Even Mario had a stripped down multiplayer (Cappy isn’t a full character on two player). This game, 4 folks can play at a time and can control their characters.. They can attack, they can defend, they have full control just like player one.. they just can’t get to far away from player one or they will warp back to Kirby (player 1)

So while this game isn’t the caliber of Mario or Breath of the Wild, it’s a good game.. it’s a fun game.. it’s designed to be a multiplayer game and if played that way, it’s a knockout!

The last thing I want to point out is the reviews complaining about the price.. This is a full game, it feels like a full game.. Mario platfromers have never been long, sonic games have never been long.. what makes platform games special is the hidden items in each world!! If you compare the game to Mario or Breath of the Wild, you might be let down by the price.. but just because those games have so much content, doesn’t mean other games need to be offered for less money. While I wish they were less expensive, there are a ton of games out that cost just this much, with much less content. Games that were received very highly!

I think if you come into this game with the expectation that it’s Kirby.. they didn’t try to do anything special with it, didn’t try to change the formula, you will love this game.. That’s what Nintendo has done here, made a Kirby game with the same basic Kirby formula we all love!

A+ game here! I highly recommend it.
