Kirby's Dream Course
Reviewed by Blaklite
I like game where I have to know all the angles. I likes games where I
don't have to worry about something attacking me, it helps me relax. It
can be challenging, but not suspenseful. This game is good for me because
I don't have time to sit down and learn how to play a game then beat it. In
Kirby's Dream Course I can sit down play a few rounds to wind down then
go on with my hectic schedule. Plus I love all the little figures. It also
really helps me when I'm baby-sitting. I don't have to worry about the kid
going home and telling his parents about all the fighting I let he partake
in, or the blood and gore I subjected him to.
Graphics 9 out of 10
Kirby's Dream Course grafics...well, I liked them. They aren't very realistic,
but since it's not supposed to be real this is a good thing. I love all the little
cartoon like figures. Not just the little marshmallow Kirbys, but also the
little speed demon tires, the rocks that stop you in mid-role, the tornados,
and the flying capes guys. They're so cute (insert a "isn't that baby so cute"
squeal here). The colors are all really bright and cheerful and happy.
Music and Sound 8 out of 10
The music is also really up-beat and cheerful. It can lift your spirits. Okay,
maybe not. But hey, it sounds good. It sounds like a cartoon show for kids,
that I wouldn't hate. (Such as barney or tele-tubbies. I can't stand them). It
could be a music score from one of the older Disney movies. Not a trek I
would buy, but it's nice background music.
As for the sound effects they are pretty much what you would expect. Very
cartoony sounding. Some sound like they were on Super Mario Bros. (take your
pick 1, 2, or 3). There cute, and they fit what happens when you hear them.
Game Challenge 7 out of 10
I know it sounds easy. Make the little marshmallow thing hit the other things,
then fall in a hole. However, it takes a great deal more intelligence then that.
In order to win quickly, you must be able to figure all the angles out in your
head before you take your shot. You can't just shoot something and win. I was
able to beat all the different worlds/levels in about 7 hours. (not consecutive).
Whereas one of my friends who is very good at fighting games needed 23 hours.
(again, not consecutive) to win.
Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10
I loved it! I don't know what else to add. This is a game where if you are
good at it you will love it. If your bad at it, it will haunt you until you
become good at it. You won't want to play, and you will hate the site of it,
but you feel you HAVE to beat it, or lose you sanity trying. And I am VERY
good at it.
Well, I guess that there isn't an area where you can play against an AI.
Then again, it would probably be hard to design it into a game like this.
I would love to be able to design my own world/level.
Other then these I can't think of anything. If your not good at this game you
might have many more frustrations. See the paragraph on game play fun.
Replayability 9 out of 10
Even though I have beaten them all before, I can still go through and try to
get a better score, or beat them through a different route. I have had this
game since it came out in `95 and I still love to play it when I get the chance.

Defiantly buy! Now it's pretty cheap, but no matter what the price, this is a
Overall 10 out of 10
Loved it! Still do! Buy it! You'll love it too!
