Today appears to be the day when the North American Kid Icarus Uprising reviews go live, and so far they appear to be a mixed bag of reactions. Seattle PI claims that the game is borderline unplayable when Pit’s feet hit the ground. The review also states that Kid Icarus Uprising is virtually unplayable in 3D without perching the 3DS on the included black plastic stand. The publication awarded the Kid Icarus: Uprising two and a half out of four.
While this fast-paced 3-D adventure is certainly a hearty reintroduction of Pit, unless you already own Nintendo’s latest hand-held gadget or have been anxiously awaiting Pit’s return for the past 20 years, there are fundamentally too many flaws with the game’s handling to make “Uprising” worth sacrificing any money to buy a 3DS.
