Kirby's Adventure really shows off just how good an NES game can be, and Is immediately recommendable to anyone.

I soon found out that I'd missed out on one of the finest, most polished, smoothest, and most playable games of its generation. I'm pretty certain HAL squeezed every last drop of juice from the NES hardware to make this game. Smooth and parallax scrolling are used extensively, and some sprite movements seem almost like the SNES' heavily utilized Mode 7 rotation technique. The environments are colorful (although 16 isn't very many colors), and there's no noticeable flicker, contrary to what an NES fan would expect. Astute players will even notice certain things that later made their way into HAL's Super Smash Bros. series relatively unchanged, and that just goes to show how well this late-era entry stacks up to games available today.
From a gameplay perspective, the controls are tight and responsive, and aren't going to allow you any deaths that aren't entirely your fault. It doesn't hurt that the Wii Remote is a better NES controller than an actual NES controller, either. It's not a particularly difficult game, but it's challenging enough to be fun, and with all the 8-bit eye candy, you'll likely find yourself completing it within a week if you play with any regularity.
Simply put, Kirby's Adventure really shows off just how good an NES game can be, and Is immediately recommendable to anyone with a Wii and five bucks.
