    Decent rental and Overall game.

    The best pink ball of fluff to hit the N64. Great game play and cheery scenes combine to be amazing.

    I've always appreciated Kirby, from the original GameBoy game to newer entries. While the handheld version is really fun, this N64 version ramps up Kirby's cheerful disposition and generally fun nature. *Story* Stran... Read Full Review

    After all these years, Kirby 64 still stands as a unique and fun platformer for everyone to enjoy.

    Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards was one of the most unique Kirby games out of the entire series. First making its debut on the Nintendo 64, players took control of the little pink puffball Kirby as he along with Waddle Dee... Read Full Review
