Out of all the old Nintendo characters which pretty much got forgotten about from the good old NES days Kid Icarus was the one I wanted Nintendo to bring back the most because, I love Greek mythology and he was rather cool in Super Smash Bros: Brawl. Kid Icarus can be as hard as nails if you put the difficulty rating right to the top just like it's older brother on the NES. Even on standard it's a nice challenge and the levels are very well thought out and look stunning. The Pandora level was a crazy maze of madness which I really enjoyed.
The voice acting in this game is brilliant and there is a lot of humour between the different characters. There is a impressive amount of different weapons to collect which you can modify too. Kid Icarus also reminds me a little of the very rare classic on the PS2 called Rez. If you enjoy your on the rail shooters with some intresting on your feet 3rd person action which makes Kid Icarus stand out then what are you waiting for. I had Star Fox 64 on the N64 when it first came out which alongside Kid Icarus: Uprising are the best examples of this type of game.
absolutely brilliant game, story mode is gripping and endlessly enjoyable and the online multiplayer is as addictive as any game ive played to date. heard that the controls were awkward but ive found them intuitive and very quick to respond and thats without the included 3ds stand. excellent work from project sora, another nintendo classic!
im serious... its AMAZING
and great multiplayer for a ds/3ds game is so uncommon... but it is (ive spent about 70% of my playtime on multiplayer)
i was anxious about the control system (as ive been told its very confsuing) but didnt have trouble at all (you have three inputs, the circle pad, touchscreen and left bumper) and dont use the stand at all
