View Full Version : Kirby's Epic Yarn (Wii)
10-24-2010, 03:16 PM
My copy arrived yesterday and I played the first two worlds earlier. First of all, believe everything you've heard and read about this being completely charming, relaxing and being guaranteed to make you smile. Also, yeah, it's as easy as has been reported too. Not a bad thing though and anyway, all the Kirby platformers are super easy.
It's just so easy to pick up and get into. The things that Kirby transforms into are well done - the fire engine being an early favourite. Some really nice music throughout as well (here's just one great track - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dKvfgAKPC4&feature=related)
Very much looking forward to playing more of this.

Have to say that I've been amazed at just how good this is! OK, it has no challenge but, just to state the obvious, it oozes charm. Some fantastic music here too and it just plays really well. Some of my favourite bits have been:
- Dino Land!
- On Splash Beach when you reveal the sun and everything brightens up
- The shmup bit in the Space World
Should have this wrapped up later today and at this point I think it has a place somewhere on my GOTY list, something I never expected I'd be saying. Anyone else playing? Thought for sure there would have been more interest.

Just finished it. Really, really enjoyed the game. Final boss battle was great too. Great stuff! :)
THIS GRASS FEELS LIKE PANTS.
That said, I hope to get back to this soon; kinda dropped it momentarily because Vanquish came out, but it is indeed charming and awesome.

Just finished this game. I've been padding through it because I didn't want to finish it too quickly. I love how it's cute it is and despite no copy ability, it's still the same Kirby. Grab a projectile and throw it back at the boss. The best part was towards the end back in Dream Land. Even has a little Japanese humor. In the end this is a game for people who suck at video games. It's still fun and the best part is there's no Kirby or any other character monologuing to themselves.:P
Though I'm getting tired of Kirby. There's a new game coming for the DS and I'm probably not going to get it.
Not a bad thing though and anyway, all the Kirby platformers are super easy.
Have you finished Kirby's Dream Land 2?

I recently started playing this and I haven't gotten very far, but it's been really enjoyable so far. I have to agree that it's really relaxing and charming. The game is so cute and purdy. I love how Kirby transforms into a car. :sdsmiley: Tank Kirby is pretty cool too. Anyways, it's almost a different beast compared to other Kirby games, and I didn't think I'd be enjoying it like the other games, but I have.

I finished this a few days ago (at 100%), but I still wanted to post some thoughts on it. Overall, I really liked this game, and I really enjoyed it from start to finish. Many of the boss fights were pretty cool, and I had a great time playing through most, if not all, the levels. I really love the fact that for the last world the developers decided to put in a yarn version of Dream Land. I thought that was really neat. I actually made use of Kirby's apartment and decorated it to my liking. Anyway, I enjoyed Epic Yarn very much.
