Video Game Review: Kirby’s Return to Dreamland, Nintendo Wii.
Game Review by Evan B. from Schlafly
Review: This is Kirby’s first home console game since Epic Yarn. In Return to Dream Land, you start off on planet Pop Star, where Kirby is running from King Dedede and Waddle Dee, while holding a large piece of cake in his hands. Meanwhile, Meta Knight is reading a book under a tree. Suddenly, a spaceship emerges from the sky, and crashes in a nearby field. Kirby and his friends investigate the crash site for survivors. They find Magolor, the owner of the crashed starship (also known as “Lor Starcutter). Magolor explains that all the pieces of his ship are scatted across Pop Star. Kirby and friends offer to help search for the missing pieces.
Gameplay works similar to the adventure mode in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (minus Kirby’s fighting styles). Like Kirby’s other games, the combat is based on inhaling enemies and using their abilities to fight other enemies. Also, there are 4 playable characters (like the Mario Bros. games). The first player is always Kirby, while the other three characters are King Dedede, Waddle Dee , and Meta Knight. Meta Knight can fly faster compared to the rest of the other players. King Dedede is the slowest among all the players, but uses a big hammer. Waddle Dee uses a spear and runs as fast as Kirby.
This is Kirby’s last game before he appears on the Wii U, and you should really check this out. Don’t forget, St. Louis Public Library allows you to check out games for Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS4, and Xbox One. Kirby’s Return to Dreamland is one of the hundreds of games the library carries.
