A cute and very fun game to play. Gameplay is extremely simple but then that is the charm of it and I cannot really go through playing this game without having a smile on my face.

This is one of those games that it's good because it's so cute and fun. I paid $50 (but with a $20 gaming coupon), worth $50 in my book.

Got my used copies from Gamestop. 2/3 had manuals. Good enough to send 2 out for the Amazon credit. I can ask my friend at gamestop to hook me up with a manual next time I go in for the copy I'm keeping.

Played this back when it came out. Great game, but pretty short. I finished it in about 12 hours, though I enjoyed almost every minute of it. Definitely worth the $30.

A 12 hour game is considered short? Different strokes I guess. In my eyes a game under 6 hours is short. 12 seems just about right.

Showed up in my Quick Picks yesterday for $28 so I jumped on it. I think it'll be an Easter gift to the kiddos though.

I see your point, but when you consider that it's the same price as games like Read Dead Redemption, Dragon Age, or something like Resident Evil 5 with a ton of replay value, it is a bit short. It's also the sort of game that might be fun to go back to at some point, but there isn't much incentive to replay it.

Anyway, Kirby is awesome. $30 is well worth it.

Well those other games are of different genres and different genres call for different lengths and I still base the length of the game on what genre it is. Since Kirby's is a side scrolling platformer, 12 hours is a pretty solid. Now if Kirby was an action RPG like Dragon Age and was only 12 hours, then yeah kind of short in my opinion. An action/adventure or platformer that stretches beyond 20 hours is quite a bit long in my opinion.

I remember a time when people valued games based on their challenge level, not their length. Oh well, I guess it's just another side-effect of humans having been civilized for too long.
