Under Rated: Kirby DS

Most people heard of this one, but it might have been overlooked due to the large number of the then up and coming choice games to be released on the DS. Yeah Nintendo had some TV spots running after the title launched in mid June, but it seems like Kirby: Canvas Curse for the DS slipped through many a people’s radar, mine included.

I just played the game for the first time this week. It is so creative. The gameplay and slick presentation is incredible. You don’t really control Kirby, rather you manipulate his environment using the stylus, and that’s all you use throughout. It works flawlessly and is crazy fun.

Let’s admit it, if a pink little puff ball doesn’t scream “kiddie,” I don’t know what does. But if that doesn’t bother you and you want to play a quality and extremely fun video game, go pick up a copy. If you’re worried it might jeopardize your adulthood, stick with Grand Theft Auto.
