Pure Nintendo: "When all is said and done, Kirby & The Amazing Mirror’s strengths also becomes it’s greatest weaknesses. One hit ability-loss is a tough element to get over, but Amazing Mirror does not have the raw difficulty of it’s NES cousins. Even if Kirby’s ability is lost, another is just around the corner. Having four Kirby’s is an interesting element, but its potential is cut short by the Virtual Console. Despite these shortcomings, its strengths far outweigh its weaknesses. Its solid platforming, exploration, and balance of abilities exceed previous entries in the series."
