Kombo - Kirby's Epic Yarn Review

Every once in a while, a Nintendo franchise will attempt to reinvent itself and try to do something different. Sometimes (like in the case of Super Mario Galaxy), the change is for the better. Other times (like Yoshi's Story), the change is most definitely for the worse. Unfortunately, Kirby's Epic Yarn is closer to the latter...

The story is too old to be commented.

Uh oh

Looks like the review has been accepted on metacritic, lol.

I can't even see the review.

As Dark Charizard knows I'm not big on sites giving Kirby Epic's Yarn the undeserved score of 9/10 and higher. I think it's being overrated simply because of the art style, and older gamers have suffered from the nostalgia of the old NES games. And I have nothing against the NES, but that day and age has come and past and a new generation of gamers are here and just like "Neutral Gamer" below me said,

"A review is where you give something a grade based on how much it lives up to those expectations that the game is trying to give...

Not based on how much this type of games pleases him/her."

And people are reviewing this game simply because of that.

But this is ridiculous. It may not be for everyone, and it may be just another of the 50+ side scrolling platformers Nintendo release every year, but it's not a 6.5/10.

The game is an 8-8.5/10 (using the 0.5 tenth scale) and that's a fair score for it.

I hate reviewers like this guy...

A review is where you give something a grade based on how much it lives up to those expectations that the game is trying to give...

Instead this guy review the game based on how much this type of games pleases him...

Notice: "It's a kids' platformer..."

Have Nintendo or the makers of this game at any point claimed it wasnt a kids game??!

BTW didnt read the review since link is dead... Got the quote from the metacritic Kombo submission...

bananlol2928d ago

I give Kombos Epic Fail a 11/10, seriously where the fuck is the review?

mushroomwig2928d ago

I expected so much better.

handheldwars2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

Hey hotstuff, wanna make out?

below: lol, sorry about that! Nothing personal, you just look hot :P

On Topic - Check the metascore of this game.

mushroomwig2928d ago

Creep detected, activating ignore shield.

kesvalk2928d ago

@handheldwars: it's dificult to fail like you did.


on-topic: i played the game, it's very good, not really kirby, but the game have a nice flow on it's gameplay.

BWS19822928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

you asked if she'd make out, she gets freaked, and you reply with "nothing personal"...

Dude. You asked if she'd make out, how is that NOT personal?! Your recovery was another 10 steps back. Your overtly direct approach is awful, you give video gamers the rap general society holds against them. Thanks.

Neckbear2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

White Knights everywhere incoming.

EDIT: Oh wait, they already appeared.

mrv3212928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

Creep detected must produce Raven, Observer or Overseer or scan...

Yes I've been watching too much Starcraft 2

ALSO: OMG A GIRL... OMG OMG LET'S ALL HAVE SOME SEXUAL ATTACTIVENESS OVER A GOD DAMN 58px × 62px 15KB image! /s How about we treat her how we would anyone else here... normally and calmly. Some with 1 different chromosome doesn't mean they aren't the same.

I think you hand is held to firmly on something

BWS19822928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

It's common sense and societal standards, nothing more. If you have further designations, that's on you.

I'm engaged, FYI. Again, common sense. Stop the dramatization.

BWS19822928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

You people are classic, it's obvious why nobody ever has anything articulate to reply with on this site. One of a kind, keep doing your thing, though. I'm sure it works wonders. I'll walk down the aisle next year and you can keep your stifled erections in hand on your nerd-rage tantrums as you trample across the internet thinking you know it all. Bunch of Romeos... I'll leave you to your incessant naivety and decadence, this site's a joke.

BWS19822925d ago

thought so. Devoid of all corresponding remarks to show any sign of handheldwars' rightful stance, he's potential restraining order material. You couple guys disagreed because you find that to be your intellectual threshold, awesome job. Pathetic.

This will be my last comment at this site, I think (the mods don't help, I'll be sure to let people know what kind of people they are after their actions from "that incident"). At most, I'll read some headlines here briefly and get my conversation elsewhere, it's like drowning in stupid without my snorkel.

What makes you think it's a girl? Because it has a picture of a girl? Because it refers to itself as a girl?

What's more, who in their right mind would take any interest anyway?

This is N4G; News for gamers. Keep it that way.

Man_of_the_year2924d ago (Edited 2924d ago )

I would expect nothing less.

handheldwars is darkcharizard alt account. I put darkcharizard on ignore in my PM's and then I got a msg from handheldwars saying that darkcharizard asked him to send me a message on darkcharizard behalf.

It was easy to detect because handheldwars was using the word "I" rather than "he" in the msg.

darkcharizard and his alt account handheldwars are pathetic.

Mods please ban this moron.

Notice both accounts have made a comment on this thread.

I'll try to contain my astonishment (!)

shazui1232928d ago

"It's a kids' platformer..."
The review definitely doesn't state the obvious...

eagle212928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

Sony fanboys don't atonish me at all. Coupled with the fact none of you idiots even commented on the other awesome review articles let's me know you guys are pure trolls. :)

Go see what Nintendoworld gave some other recent high profile first party games and then come back and look stupid. I won't do the work for you. :)

Akagi2928d ago

Cute, but I'm a PC fan. Besides I can imagine it: Any game with Mario, Zelda, Megaman, Metroid, etc, on the title gets an automatic 9.

eagle212928d ago

Then go play the almost dead PC games then. :)

BWS19822928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

Just, no.

WoW says hi. It's like a religion to some (not me, just saying...).

STEAM? CS? Mods? StarCraft 1 competitions from a 12 year old game? Again. No. There's a culture you're apparently unaware of, which doesn't mean it's not there. PC gaming is not a niche. If you saw the numbers, you'd edit your comment. (don't "You fanboy!" me, I have and love my Wii, and call Perfect Dark 1 and Ocarina the 2 best games of all time).

Think prior to myopic blanket statements intended to prove a point.

silkrevolver2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )’re right. That was kind of stupid of me to not even click the link. Seriously... did this game even get reviewed by Kombo?

Fishy Fingers2928d ago

Hmm... All those^^ comments, but I see no review?
