Game Description & Reviews:
Once again the universe is in danger and once again it's up to a pink little puffball to save everyone. This Kirby title is just as bright and cheery as his other adventures, except that unlike most of his adventures, this one is portrayed in full 3D graphics. With plenty of challenging levels, unique gameplay, and a constant barrage of cuteness, this title is definately worth anyone's attention, no matter what their level of maturity may be.
I was so excited to see a Kirby game finally being made for the Nintendo 64 and highly anticipated it's release. I went out and bought it the first day it came out, tried it, and loved it!
It certainly lived up to it's expectations and hype. It reminds me very much of Kirby's Dreamland for the SNES, only with new and improved graphics and characters. The story is adorable, and the gameplay is awesome! Like any Kirby game, you have the ability to inhale creatures and use their techniques. But unlike all of the previous kirby games, this copy technique has been enhanced - you can now inhale and master two abilities instead of one! For instance, you can inhale two fire creatures and get a mega fire ability, or try combining fire with rock and get something entirely different! It's new and exciting to try out different twists and is definitely an improvement to the game.
The difficulty level on this game is relatively moderate. Nothing was easy as pie or insanely difficult, but fell somewhere in between. The first levels were easy, and the last ones were challenging. Just as it should be. Some of the boss fights I'll admit were a bit tougher than I would've preferred, but they weren't impossible.
Although I love Kirby Superstar, this game competes with it very well!
The first (and only) Kirby game for the N64, Crystal Shards delivers with excellent gameplay, a good soundtrack, and the very cool ability to combine copy powers to create new ones.
This game is one I found through blockbuster game rentals and the minute I played it I felt the need to buy it ASAP! The idea is entirely original and on the level of Kirby Superstar (snes). The main element that pulls you in would definitely be the mix n' match system, not only could you stack electricity with electricity and pretend your magneto but you could easily mix it with the rock power instead and bam! you got your own magnetic pull hurling a rock everywhere killing whatever it hits!! or become a fridge (electricity + ice) and binge on yourself. Play this and see what you missed out on for turning down this amazing game's plush design.
The graphics in this game may be a little childish, but it looks so clear and sharp that you just have to love them. The gameplay itself is simply AMAZING with the 7 combineable copy abilities.
