I may be a shill for the Kirby series, but I honestly believe Super Star deserves every point of its 5-star rating…just try not to think about all the widows and orphans Kirby creates with his wave of unrelenting violence.
The DOS Spirit
Kirby Super Star har uten tvil vannvittig mye innhold innbakt i en pakke det er vanskelig å ikke like. Musikken er oppløftende, positiv og lekende og det visuelle er i god, skuddsikker SNES-kvalitet. Om det er noe å sette fingeren på så må det være at det kan være vanskelig å få med seg alt som foregår når det skjer mye på skjermen. Kampene kan bli nokså kaotiske, spesielt hvis du har kopiert deg opp en hjelper som styrer av CPU-en. Den tar seg som regel av all den ugang den klarer å finne, en jobb den klarer veldig, veldig bra. Baksiden er at i trange rom er det så godt som umulig å se hvem som treffer hva. Heldigvis er helseindikatoren fin å titte på hvis du er usikker på hvor mye bank den rosa klumpen egentlig får.
Total! (Germany)
Insgesamt hat HAL ein sehr gutes und umfangreiches Spiel abgeliefert, das dank SA-1-Chip mit einigen hervorragenden Grafikeffekten aufwartet. Wen die englischen Bildschirmtexte und die poppige Niedlich-Grafik nicht stören, der kann bei diesem exzellenten Jump&Run bedenkenlos zugreifen.
The majority of games simply aren't this good. It stands aside from the crowd and you'd be crazy to miss it.
Kirby Super Star est un très bon choix en matière de plates-formes sur Super Nintendo. Techniquement réussi et avant tout axé sur le plaisir immédiat de jouer et de ne pas se prendre la tête, le jeu bénéficie d'une prise en main directe pour un fun présent dès les premières secondes. En contrepartie, le jeu s'avère tout de même trop court et trop facile. Malgré cela, le plaisir est bien là, surtout à deux joueurs en mode coopératif.
Nintendo Land
Used game stores like FuncoLand typically want up to $30 for a copy, but if you can find one with the box and instructions, I'd suggest jumping on it. I was able to find a brand-new copy for $19.99 (a super deal) at a larger Electronics Boutique, but it was the last copy there (and they never even had heard of it when I first asked), so I don't expect this great game to stick around much longer. Pick it up if you can.
The Video Game Critic
Kirby Super Star actually contains eight Kirby games, but two need to be unlocked, and two others are so minor they probably shouldn't even count. Still, six games is a lot of action for your money, especially when they dish out the quality gameplay you would expect from Nintendo. Inhaling enemies not only fun, but it allows Kirby to absorb their powers. This changes his appearance slightly and gives him the ability to execute moves like throwing fire or swinging a sword. Kirby also has the option of converting enemies into "friends" who will fight along side of him. These friends can even be controlled by a second player! These Kirby games are truly goofy yet oddly compelling. The graphics tend to be simple but have a clean, colorful appearance that's easy on the eyes. The controls are dead-on, and the cartridge includes a battery to save your progress. In you can look past Kirby's cutsey appearance, I think you'll find this compilation to be well worth your time.
