Kirby Triple Deluxe Reviews
Suck it up.
Kirby Triple Deluxe may look great and has some clever ideas for how to use 3D, but falls into a rut of simple platforming and puzzles that rarely require any thought or skill. I admire that it tries to give us more powers and abilities to play with than ever before, but that empowerment shouldn't come at the expense of any real difficulty.
One of the best Kirby games so far, although it still suffers from all the series' usual faults – including the nagging concern that the whole concept could be so much more.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is a great package with two entertaining side games to complement the super-slick platforming quest. With a stronger final quarter, this would be essential.
The single-player campaign is the main attraction, offering a fun experience that plays with Kirby's typical mechanics in interesting ways
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is smarter than it looks
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is a wildly inventive and colorful platformer that makes great use of 3D.
Even if you tend not to care much about Kirby games – understandably, given how toothless they can be – Triple Deluxe merits attention. Smart level design and a remarkable level of detail make this portable platformer one of Kirby's greatest adventures to date.
Thankfully, Triple Deluxe doesn't save the best for last and instead sprinkles it throughout the adventure like a good Dream Star should. If you've been following the franchise for years, you'll love this title and if this is your first shot at Kirby's brand of suck, don't be scared. While this review may have been a mouthful, breathing enemies in and out will come naturally.
Kirby:Triple Deluxe is yet another winning entry in the franchise. It delivers the core Kirby experience alongside of a few very well done extras, which is pretty much everything a fan could ask for. While the Kirby formula could easily be getting stale for some, it still represents a whimsical corner of platforming games that's centered around one central ideal -- fun.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is a hard one to score, as while it doesn't really do anything wrong, it never really stands out either. The copy abilities are interesting enough, but a lot of the level design feels a bit ordinary – it certainly lacks the variety of Kirby's Epic Yarn. While that was also very easy, it was a joy to play through.
Despite the main story mode being a bit too easy for its own good, Kirby: Triple Deluxe is still one of the best entries in the series. The combination of old and new abilities will entertain fans young and old, and the two extra mini-games are worth returning to, an ideal cure to the forthcoming summertime blues.
Triple Deluxe is a solid platformer bookended by some great extras, even if it is pretty easy, give or take a couple of tricky boss encounters. It lacks the sense of wonderment that Epic Yarn generated with its incredible use of texture, humour and verve, yet is still well worth a look -and is perhaps the finest handheld outing for the cerise sucker. Another understated triumph for Nintendo, then.
Another decent series entry, with smart levels, puzzles and unlockables that'll keep the Kirby Hardcore happy.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe looks like just another entry in an old series if you only peek at screenshots and trailers, but this is the best 2D platformer I've played on the 3DS. Levels offer tons of secrets and hidden items to find, and the game's use of the portable's 3D effect is delightfully clever. It's nice to see charm and wit take center stage in this beautiful adventure.

While the pink puffball hero offers nothing new, younger players will be hooked, writes Andy Robertson
