In the past year, Nintendo has released three decidedly different Kirby experiences. Epic Yarn is a charming yet consequence-free Wii platformer, and Mass Attack is a solid DS entry with some similarities to Pikmin. Both games were well received, but neither is reminiscent of classic Kirby gameplay. With Kirby’s Return To Dream Land, the pink puffball is back in the form(s) that made him famous. It’s classic Dream Land gameplay, with our hero inhaling enemies to gain their various powers. Revisiting these classic mechanics is great for nostalgic purposes, but it’s the four-player co-op integration that breathes new life into the formula.
