Critic Reviews for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

It's a minor blot, though, as elsewhere this lives up to the legacy of its predecessor, and takes it to new, interesting places. Kirby rarely gets a starring role in Nintendo's line-up, which is something of a shame, as the Rainbow Curse is another unconventional treat.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a brisk, gorgeous platformer that has no qualms with taking off the training wheels.

A tepid sequel to Kirby: Power Paintbrush, that even with its short running time barely manages to stretch it's small collection of ideas across a whole game.

Rainbow Curse is different from any other platformer out there. I got frustrated by Kirby's insistence on staying rolled into a ball, but plenty of moments of innovation and fun appear throughout

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse shines because it's a simple game that delivers superbly on a simple concept. You're repeating many of the same actions again and again, but with each new stroke it feels more refined, more graceful.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse oversimplifies its mechanics, making for an experience alternating between frustrating and dull.

A happy platforming game that appears to be made out of clay and has just one odd design flaw.
