Critic Reviews for Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, HAL Laboratory managed to keep the core structure of what many know and love from the Kirby series while polishing it up with a shiny, new 64-bit coat of paint for the new console generation. While the likes of Mario and Zelda have gone on to feature in numerous fully 3D adventures, Kirby and the Forgotten Land on Switch was his first 'proper' 3D outing. This first brush with the 3D visuals still stands as one of the more unique entries in the series, then, and it's as infectiously appealing as ever. Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards isn't without its drawbacks, but is still impressively pleasurable to play to this day.
