Last Week our vary own Jim Sterling posted a Review of Kirby's Return to Dreamland. Up until that point, a large majority who hadn't played a demo of any sort were unsure about the game. People were either on the fence or ready to go yell at the people at Gamestop to take there money. Jim gave the game a 10. Needless to say that the community was split. People were either saying that it was too high a score or it was perfect for the Title. But as reviews come and go people refuse to let this review go. That or the comments were littered with GIFs of people eating popcorn. He gave Battlefield a 7.5 out of 10, Which he backed up with his solid arguments and opinions.
Battlefield 3 is a beautiful game regardless of what platform one plays it on, and is well worth your money if your a fan of the FPS genre. But it's no Kirby's Return to Dreamland. You see in the cluttered market of first person shooters it is a surprise when a game like Kirby's Return to Dreamland emerges. Unlike Battlefield or the soon to release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, this game is a breath of fresh air. In Kirby's Return to Dreamland your Kirby, in a colorful well polished world, where you are helping a alien recover parts for his damaged spaceship, just to be a nice guy. You see Kirby's Return to Dreamland is a colorful Adventure for the Wii that doesn't require multiplayer to sell the game. While it is a feature in Kirby's Return to Dreamland it isn't what drives the gameplay. This is where Battlefield and Call of Duty fall short, these games focus is multiplayer, imagine if those titles multiplayer feature was taken away. Then what? Truth be told these games campaigns are short and generally generic.
That and Jim Sterling's opinion is his own. (ga ga ga gasp!) It was backed up with strong opinions and arguments. Trying to compare a Kirby game to a first person shooter is like comparing a paper clip, to a magical talking painting of Richard Nixon that grants wishes, why would you even try? Trying to call Jim a Kirby Fanatic or comparing him to Kirby (despite the obvious fact that they are both pink, round and have big mouths) is both irrelevant and unnecessary. Lets face it, Kirby's Return to Dreamland is the best game to come out this quarter so far, and Jim voiced his opinion, besides even if you think his score is to low or to high, its his
score! Not yours. If you would like to make your own score for a video games that you played up on your game box, go right ahead, I'm sure they'll listen to you over the Reviews Editor of Destructoid.com
