US Reviews for Kirby’s latest clay inspired adventure have started to pop up on online review aggregator Metacritic. I know a few of you aren’t too keen on the site, but Nintendo seems to love it. Anyway, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse currently has a Metascore of 74 based on ten critics. It’s not a bad score, but it could be better. Here’s a sample of some of the reviews that are currently out there.
By its very nature, it feels more at home on a handheld. Just in this case, it’s a handheld system that’s tethered to your living room console.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse shines because it’s a simple game that delivers superbly on a simple concept. You’re repeating many of the same actions again and again, but with each new stroke it feels more refined, more graceful.
Nothing about the gameplay feels broken, it just feels soulless this time around.
