"Starting up Kid Icarus: Uprising, the user is asked to pick either a sword (a mid-range weapon), or claws (close-range weapon) or overcharge. I selected overcharge. Kid Icarus: Uprising handles wonderfully. Better in flight using the thumb stick than on the ground, but both systems seemed natural and a beginner like myself was able to er... dive right in to the game. The graphics of this game are nearly indistinguishable from those from their High-Def bretheren. It doesn't seem that amazing given the 2D screenshots, but this game must be seen and possibly even felt to be fully appreciated."
