Kirby Star Allies acts like a love letter to Kirby and Couch Co-Op Fans but keeps it really short and simple at the same time. Besides the 3-5 hours on story there isn't really much motivation to keep on playing besides some generic mini-games. If you're looking for some hours of colorful kirby multiplayer action you can still get this without hesitation.

Where Mario Odyssey demanded player skill, Kirby 180’s and demands you just have fun. It won’t challenge most of you reading this, but I bet you’ll be smiling and having a good time regardless.

Kirby Star Allies is not Nintendo or HAL Laboratory at their best, but it is still a fantastic platformer that gets way more right than it gets wrong.

Kirby Star Allies aims for the stars, but falls short. It's a good game that lacks creativity and is incredibly brief. Despite these factors, however, it's still a good game and a good buy for fans of the pink puffball.

Entertaining but lacking the challenge that many will crave, it’s hard not to come away from playing Kirby Star Allies with a mixed opinion. With impeccably polished visuals but uncomplex stages to overcome, this short-lived adventure in Dream Land has much room for improvement which we can only hope the pink puffball’s next outing will deliver on.

Kirby will not be one of the most challenging games that you will play this year. However, it is fun and definitely can pass the time with a friend or two. If you’re a fan of Kirby, this game will give you more of the same Kirby that we know and love, don’t expect it to hold your attention for long though.
