A Gift From The Gods

User Rating: 9 | Kid Icarus: Uprising 3DS

This game is blessed with humorous dialogue, a surprisingly deep combat system, and one of the most beautiful soundtracks I've ever heard! The ability to choose a level's difficulty lets newer players progress through the story, while also giving veterans a good challenge. As a lefty, I appreciate the wealth of control customization; these controls may not be what one would be used to (the closest comparison I could make is to Metroid Prime: Hunters for DS). The story mode is filled with memorable characters, quirky enemies, and songs that could be compared to the legendary tunes of the NES classics.
