Knockabout sugary fun for four players.

A bit sickly, even for those with an excessively sweet tooth, this low rent Kirby spin-off is a poor follow-up to The Forgotten Land and has nowhere near the longevity of Fall Guys.

The latest Kirby game serves up some delicious party game fun but fails to fully satisfy cravings.

Solid and definitely have an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.

Kirby's Dream Buffet isn't a terrible game, and certainly has the typical Nintendo aesthetic polish, but the whole package is underwhelming and lacking in any real variety. I felt as if I had seen everything bar the unlockable cosmetics after a few hours play and there was nothing to keep me hooked. Unless you are a total diehard Kirby fan, I'd just go for a replay of Forgotten Land.

It's not the best Kirby game out there, but it's certainly better than I expected it to be. It doesn't have the same staying power that a game like Mario Party or WarioWare does, but if nothing else, it's a tasty appetizer.

On the whole, Kirby’s Dream Buffet is a neat idea on the surface. When brought to life, it could’ve genuinely been a contender for one of the Switch’s top party games had it featured a little more variation, and some better multiplayer support. That said, the future of Kirby is now very much cemented in 3D, and I still look forward to where the pink puff ball ends up once they’ve decided that they can’t stomach another strawberry.

Should Nintendo support Kirby's Dream Buffet it with updates, new courses, then it's only going to get better. It's a lot of fun, but it's the kind of fun you can't quite see yourself returning to over and over again.
