The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

GoNintendo Review - Kirby: Planet Robobot

I've always enjoyed the Kirby series. I think it holds a unique place in the gaming industry as a franchise that isn't too challenging, but still provides a lot of fun. Ever since the release of Kirby's Return to Dreamland, I feel like the franchise has been better than ever. Each main game after that outing has been pretty much outstanding in my book. Then I saw the trailer for Kirby: Planet Robobot...and I became a bit nervous.

We all have our first impressions of a game when it's initially announced. We see artwork, screens or a trailer and form some sort of opinion. Now I'm not dumb enough to let that first impression spoil a game for me, but I will say that I didn't really dig what Kirby: Planet Robobot was about. The idea of using mechs to get around and battle in a Kirby game seemed like it just wouldn't jive. Something about it felt shoehorned in to me, and I couldn't place my finger on why. That said, I kept my overall open mind for when I actually got to sit down with the game.

Now that I've put in ample time with Kirby: Planet Robobot, I can say that I totally get it. To tell you the truth, Kirby: Planet Robobot totally turned around my expectations. While I went into it being a bit nervous and apprehensive, I've come out completely sold on the idea. The entire mech mechanic adds much more than surface value to the experience. I don't know that we'll ever see Kirby jumping into a mech again, but I can say that I'd really love to see it return in the future. This approach added yet another truly interesting wrinkle to the Kirby universe.
