Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush is one of the best-looking games on the Wii U, yet its creativity fails to reach the same dizzying heights where gameplay is concerned. It's fun and accessible, but doesn't offer enough substance to serve as anything more than fodder for a few lazy Sunday afternoons.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a definite misstep for the Kirby series, and for Nintendo. Unless you have some young kids in your household, steer clear of this one.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a fun little title that doesn't bring a ton to the table, but what it does offer, it executes quite well. A good game if you're looking for short bursts of platforming fun, just don't expect anything epic in scope.

An excellent debut for Kirby on the Wii U, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is amazing to see in motion. Too bad players won't get to do much of that, as spectators get the best seats for this show.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is still a thing of beauty, lovely to look at and challenging (but not punitive) in play. In places, you can even see the sculptor's fingerprints, but you can't leave any of your own.

Kirby offers a fantastic experience for the amount of content it provides and the price. The only caveat is that you will be forced to play the game strictly on the gamepad, which is a shame as the beauty shines through on your TV screen the most. You can attempt to play while looking at the TV and I'm sure some folks will be able to get some semblance of accuracy doing so, but for most, it's going to be a gamepad-only affair, and it's a shame. Anyone watching you play via the TV will be able to enjoy the colors and superb visual style the game throws at you the best. If you're ok with this, Rainbow Curse offers an extremely likable and fun stylus adventure for all ages.

After the last few willfully easy Kirby games, it's a nice change to see the poor little puffball repeatedly die as you struggle for mastery.

While playing the game, I thought of my father, who is a far better sketch artist than I am. He is one of those people who is interested in video games but professes to be allergic to dual analog stick controllers. If the game's stylus-driven mechanics can win him over, I might owe Nintendo a heartfelt tweet.

Despite its shortcomings, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse offers up an entertaining, albeit a frequently frustrating experience. The game's rainbow drawing mechanic makes great use of the Wii U's GamePad but the resulting gameplay unfortunately isn't always as fun as it could be.

For any fan of platformers, this is a game worthy of your shelf space.
