Game is great. Do not miss out on this one. Great gameplay. Nintendo releases game after game and this one is one to look for. Kids love it and for a DS game has great clean looking graphics.
excellent... my son's new favorite game... he waited a long time for sequel to original when he played it... he says it was well worth the wait !!!
This is a great game, full of action and a balanced story within each chapter. If you have a 3ds this is one of the top 10 must gets for it. It may be set at a certain level(easy) at first and you can adjust it right after you beat the first chapter. The controls are great! Every button is adjustable. The only part is if you have an XL and/or equipped with accessories-it becomes extremely stressful on your wrist (you carry it primarily with one hand) after prolonged use. This can help develop carpel tunnel. For this reason they provided a stand included with the game. You can also alleviate this by changing the stylus to no stylus and a circle pad can help that as well.
-- story and humor---
-- action paced---
--Level and character Design---
--Replay level - Very high----
-Cons:If the control scheme is to use with a stylus: An XL or LL may cause stress on the wrist if you cannot
use it with a stand, circle pad pro or similar accessories after a prolonged use-and its hard to stop playing. Watch out if it starts getting painful on the fingers or wrist.
Easily one of the best games on the 3ds, Kid Icarus: Uprising is overflowing with fast action and satisfying gameplay. Visuals are solid, especially with the 3d effect. The entire game is fully voice acted, which helps involve you in the story as you blast demons bent on destroying the world with your magic weapons. Not only is the voice acting ever present, it is also very well done and never really gets annoying as poor voice acting can often do. In this case, it is much the opposite effect. The weapon system is much deeper than I anticipated, allowing you to fuse, destroy and trade weapons over Spotpass. The game has several levels of difficulty, all the way up to 9, ensuring a large amount of replayability, especially if you love a challenge.
The gameplay consists of flying levels where you aim and shoot using the touch screen to aim and the left bumber to fire and the circle pad to dodge enemy fire. The controls remain largely the same on foot, where you run around, shooting or meleeing your enemies. There is really never a dull moment. This is an absolute must-have for any 3ds owners who enjoy action games.
We have 2 ten year olds, boy and girl, and both just love this game. They love it so much they want another one so they can play together. We will definitely watch for any future versions of this game.
