Kid Icarus: Uprising Review

 

Kid Icarus: Uprising soars in this fast-paced and compelling shooter.

A deep shooter with tons of customization options ; Visually stunning, with excellent use of 3D ; Laugh-out-loud funny dialogue ; Colourful, fun art direction

Controls require getting used to ; Fiddly platforming segments

Occasionally, though, the design of the ground sections can prove to be problematic. A few take place on thin, treacherous platforms, and Pit's propensity for dashing often leads to an unwanted fall. The Circle Pad isn't accurate enough to avoid the...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

A triumphant return for a forgotten hero; a dazzling, silly, beautiful adventure that mostly, but never completely, overcomes its control woes.

Airborne sections feel like a spiritual successor to Star Fox 64 ; An incredible array of content ; A technical tour-de-force: bright, fast, smooth, detailed. Gorgeous

Ground controls - a major bomb

It is, then, a triumphant return for a forgotten hero; a dazzling, silly, beautiful adventure that mostly, but never completely, overcomes its control woes. When Pit's wings are clipped then so is his game, but in the air it's a different story. Here,...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

After lying dormant for two decades, Kid Icarus is back in his own adventure and has experienced quite the rebirth on the 3DS. Whereas the original NES and Game Boy entries were side-scrolling action platformers with the Metroid engine, this takes cues...

Uprising makes surprisingly great use of the system's online functionality. Not only can you use the StreetPass feature to swap items with folks and gain access to weapons and other gear earlier than just going through the game, but there are also two...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

It took about twenty-one years for the angel Pit to get a new game but it was well worth the wait. The newest addition to the Kid Icarus series is Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS and is quite a departure from the previous two games. While the...

Kid Icarus: Uprising Review (3DS)

 

I'm not one to over-romanticise old Nintendo properties, but I can't help but notice when there's fan-demand for a revival, and “a new Kid Icarus” is something that I've heard time and again. A revival of this magnitude is also a tricky stretch, since...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

Mankind is on the verge of destruction. After being banished for over two decades, Medusa has returned in all her vengeful glory. With the forces of the Underworld at her command, she’s poised to conquer the planet and kill everything on it. The only...

Kid Icarus: Uprising has several things going for it. The story balances its surprisingly philosophical subject matter with a fine blend of self-aware humor, excellent voice acting, endearingly hammy characters. The rail shooting segments are...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

Hark the herald angels sing? Or is Nintendo's flashback to the 80s the pits? We strap on some waxen..

By using the stand and restricting my play time to a few minutes at a go and no more than an hour a day, I found I was able to get past the intrinsic interface issues and enjoy the game despite of them, and it has been scored accordingly. If you’re...

Kid Icarus: Uprising Review

 

Cake? Where?!

Top notch graphics; Deep, replayable single-player; Balanced, competitive multiplayer; Tons of unlocks; Great writing; Intensity Slider

Painful controls; Learn to love it

Truly, Kid Icarus is the second-best Nintendo 3DS title available for the handheld, second only to Mario himself. As a Nintendo title, it's everything you could want from the publisher, despite the fact that the controls leave something to be desired...

Kid Icarus: Uprising Review

 

Kid Icarus Uprising definitely soars a little close to the sun, but manages to get away with only slightly singed wings...

Lovely flying sections; Some great visual displays; Heaps and heaps of weapons to unlock; Clever intensity system; Addictive multiplayer; Fun banter between characters

Ground sections never quite match up to flying sections; The controls take some getting used to; Circle Pad Pro required for left handers; Can cause hand cramps; Some drab level design

Kid Icarus Uprising Review

 

It's been 20 years since Nintendo's Kid Icarus series has been on store shelves. Will Pit's return on the 3DS be his best showing yet?
