MMGN: Kid Icarus: Uprising resurrects Nintendo’s forgotten hero in unique style after a 21 year absence. It’s innovative and has a fantastic rewards system that dares the player to up the ante. Uprising is one of the best looking games on the handheld, and the playful story set within 10 minute chapters is perfect for short bursts of gaming. It distinguishes the airborne on-rails and ground-based off-rails elements well, while effectively presenting the same objective. The controls are certainly different, but that’s also the game’s Achilles' heal. While accurate, they are significantly more uncomfortable than traditional control schemes and always leave you feeling awkward, particularly as the off-rails segments asks too much of the touchscreen. Despite these issues, the gameplay is solid and it’s undeniably a unique Nintendo franchise.
