Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Part of what makes Kirby and the Forgotten Land so much fun to play is the beautiful world you get to explore. In typical World and Level fashion, each area of the Forgotten Land is divided into specific biomes: grass, water, snow, desert, etc. My initial worries for this title were that Nintendo would deliver the same experience world after world, with a new coat of paint. Thankfully, that is not the case.

Very rarely did I play through a level in my 15 hours that I did not enjoy. It wasn’t necessarily what I did in each world that kept me so excited, but rather seeing how the worlds themselves were crafted. Two of my favourite levels were built around an abandoned mall, and it was so well done and detailed.

With such a gorgeous world to look at, I would have liked the development team to be a bit more varied in their scoring of the game. Far too often I was hearing familiar themes, and since many of the songs are very short, you’ll be hearing them on loop for a very long time. It’s a small gripe, but one worth making.
