kirby has been around for a long time stating off on the gameboy then to the snes. now kirby comes to the n64. when I frist saw the game's screenshots I thoght it whould be like super mario 64. no it truned out to be a 2d kirby game with 3d graphics. the story is pretty good it tells that dark matter the villon of the kirby games taking over a planet. the people of the planet give the crystel to a young girl who escapes the planet. the drak matter splits into 3 ballsof darkness and chase after her. she gets attacked and lands on pop star kirbys home world. kirby is looking at the sky when the girl lands and the cristel is split apart. so kiby goes to help her find the shards and save her planet. gameplay is simerler to other kiby games. the game is not open like other 3d platformers. you are on a path from begging to end. with platformers that are 3d and open this game is kinda dissapointing that they stick to a 2d platfromer. kirby can still suck up enimes and gain there powers. there is one new thing added to kiby 64. and that is you can combined 2 powers togahther. sound ios tiplcal kirby alot of old scool tunes. the game is about 15 hours long but in order to get the true ending you need to get all the shards. there is some multiplayer but it is not that fun. overall this game is for kirby fans.
