What Gamespot Users have to say about Kirby's Return to Dreamland

    Too easy and not as fun! I completed it in a little more than two days. Rent it, check it out, but don't buy it. Boring!

    This game is extremely easy. I completed it in a little more than two days. Rent it, check it out of the library, but not buy it. It's not a game that you'll treasure. It's not as good as Super Mario ...

    Kirby games have always been a favourite of mine, such as Kirby's Adventure being one of my all time favourite games, and even the second best NES game to me. I have played about four Kirby games sadl...

    It's so good to see Kirby return to his roots again.

    Kirby's Epic Yarn left some gamers with a bad taste in their mouth. While the game was not bad, some aspects of it were not as welcomed as one would think. For starters, the inability to lose a life...

    Brings Kirby back to its roots in with flashy new powerups and super fun multiplayer.

    Rated on August 13, 2012 by abHS4L88

    I actually didn't grow up with Kirby, so I missed out on what traditional Kirby games were like (sort of played them before), it was mainly the quirky out of the box type Kirby games I played (Tilt n ...

    There's an inescapable feeling of deja vu in Kirby's latest outing.

    Rated on April 02, 2013 by Anonymoe

    Pros: The gameplay is solid on a basic level; Fun new powers; Full co-op support Cons: Lacks any real "spark"; Controls are alternately loose and sluggish In retrospect, Nintendo really knocked...

    Great game for all, loved by kids, and great multiplayer.

    Rated on June 26, 2013 by 30hanman

    Traded in to get this game for my son, since he loved Kirby's Epic Yarn. I never played any Kirby games until they came out on the Wii. This game is different than Epic Yarn, it's a platformer with lo...

    Kirby's Return to Dreamland marks the return of a classic Kirby game on a home console and the end of the Wii era.

    Rated on November 21, 2011 by rushiosan

    Kirby's Epic Yarn wasn't EXACTLY the classic Kirby that we were used to: he couldn't inhale enemies, the abilities were acquired randomly and the multiplayer didn't work like past titles - for example...
