Cubed3's Adam Riley Reviews Kid Icarus: Uprising (Nintendo 3DS)by Adam Riley on 03/19/12
UK website, Cubed3, has just posted up its definitive review of Nintendo's latest 3DS game, Kid Icarus: Uprising, from Sora Ltd, the development team headed up by Masahiro Sakurai, the man behind the Kirby and Smash Bros. series. Although there have been two Kid Icarus games in the past, Pit's adventures were on the NES and Game Boy so long ago that any fans of the originals are likely to have forgotten the intriguing titles that mixed platform action with shooting elements.
However, the Nintendo 3DS reboot, Kid Icarus: Uprising, appears to have been a resounding success. Cubed3's Operations Director, Adam Riley called it a "a true labour of love by a developer with real passion for videogame making," scoring it 9/10.
Below is a quote from the review:
Kid Icarus: Uprising was always going to be a risky move from Nintendo, pegging it as one of the key Nintendo 3DS titles right from launch, but thankfully it was delayed long enough for Masahiro Sakurai and his team at Sora Ltd to spend sufficient time ironing out as many of the issues raised in early preview builds as possible. The end result is a thoroughly entertainment mix of air- and ground-based shooting that never slows down, throwing all manner of new challenges at the player, incentivising the whole process to ensure replay levels are as high as possible. The intense multiplayer options are merely the icing on an already very delicious cake.
