Comments / reviews:
After reading several reviews, it seemed to me that the issue most have stems from their expectations. First and foremost, this is a Kirby game. What Kirby is, and has always been is ingrained in Star Allies. Several portions of the game are easy, but they never cease to be fun. The puzzles start out quite simple, but take some complex turns late-game. The vast array of allies and elemental combinations available adds a nice layer of strategy to an otherwise simplistic Kirby game. Although many had issues with how close Star Allies stuck to the past themes, I found it to be really charming. They managed to take everything you know about Kirby, and present it in a nice, new and updated 2018 package.

This game is a marvelous installment to the Kirby franchise. The visuals are beautiful, the soundtrack is gorgeous, and the game is just a ton of fun to play.

Firstly, I would like to address the main "complaints" people have with Kirby games, which really isn't valid if they have completed the game to 100%, and that is that the game is too short/easy. What literally EVERY SINGLE KIRBY GAME utilizes is having the main story simple enough to breeze through and beat. This is done to cater to the younger players who are not too advanced or good enough at the game for any further difficulty. Throughout this mode, however, there are various unlockables that get more and more difficult to find as the game progresses. The time it took me to complete the game while locating and collecting every single rare item and switch was about seven to eight hours. For most games, this is a decent length of time for a main story mode. After beating the main story, two games modes are unlocked-- each being more difficult than the main story. The first one is a mode where you run through the game with more difficult bosses and half HP as before, while playing as Kirby's helpers. The second mode is a boss rush mode with varying difficulties to choose from, where you challenge every boss in the game with limited health and recovery items,. After you complete both, the hardest difficulty of the boss rush is unlocked, which is called "Soul Melter" difficulty. You are given minimal recovery options and about a third of the HP you had in the main story, and even as a seasoned gamer, this final mode is very challenging. I never died throughout the entire game up until this mode, to which I proceeded to Game Over twice on the final boss.

Now for the good about the game. Firstly, the ability mixtures are incredibly intuitive and fun to use. By combining various elements with pre-existing abilities, like sword or hammer, it unlocks a further sense of depth not seen since Kirby on the Nintendo 64. What is even more surprising, is that every single helper in the game (there are about 20) each have their own unique movesets, which shows just how much effort and thought the developers put into every aspect of the game. The story is fun and interesting, with the bosses being unique and fun to figure out how to play against.

Kirby games are one of Nintendo's most consistent franchises that they always seem to get right, and this excellent installment falls right into place. If you're thinking about picking this game up, you will not be disappointed.

 Best part: You have two joy cons, you automatically have two players. If the second (3rd or 4th) player isn’t good at video games, it doesn’t matter.

This game is simply enhancing nostalgia. This is literally a highly updgraded version of the old Kirby games. I personally believe that this is the best part. Changing the formula would be unnecessary.

Graphics, sounds, and animation are awesome. It is really fun to play and moves quickly. With so many different character types it never gets boring. It even includes separate mini games which are entertaining as well. The levels are very different from one another. Plenty of unlockable content to keep you playing beyond beating the game, if you so choose.

The couch co-op is legitimately awesome. The diversity of powers, power ups, characters and team actions makes the game awesome. Kids and adults will love it. The controls are easy to master.

Overall I loved it, just buy it. Oh and it plays great in handheld as well. Young children will especially enjoy this title.

(My video is rough, I know)

Great game to play with friends and family. The game isn’t all that hard, but has a lot of fun abilities to team up with. Playing it with my 8 year old daughter. she’s had some trouble, but nothing major at all. If you want some nice relaxing local multiplayer with pleasing graphics and good gameplay then I’d suggest picking this up

 This was on my son’s Easter list. He is 11 with special needs. He’s a man of very few words. He said, it’s terrific, no it’s wonderfully-incredible. Great graphics and it’s so much fun”. I think that means he gives it 5 stars!

He got this kirby game, scribblenauts showdown and pikachu detective in his easter basket, this is by far his favorite of the 3!! Scribblenauts is a close runner up.

Kirby makes his return on the Nintendo Switch and it's a return worth checking out. This time Kirby Star Allies takes a different approach on Kirby games and allows you to play with 3 friends whether CPU or with friends. Mixing and matching the many different power of Kirby's friends allows the game to stay fresh and unique as there are many different ways to solve puzzles and beat bosses.

The game isn't difficult to beat as for the most part of the game the bosses tend to be easier than the last half of the game. I would say that's my only complaint about the game. Upon beating the game, you unlocked 2 mini games and a boss battle mode which allows you to challenge and fight the bosses. The game does provide replay value as you can play with your friends and challenge yourself to collect all the puzzle pieces throughout the different worlds in Kirby. I would give this game an 8 out of 10 and say while this isn't a must own game for Switch owners, it is a must play game for Switch owners.

Super fun to play with a friend! I’ve never played a Kirby game before, but I wanted a new Switch game to play so it’s not just sitting there collecting dust. It’s definitely no BOTW or Odyssey, but it’s a good holdover game until the bigger titles release. It’s very simple, very cute, and great for some relaxing, mindless gameplay. If you took advantage of Amazon’s preorder price, I think you got a good enough deal for this title. If not, then maybe play the demo first?

This isn’t a game that people will be talking about all year. It’s too safe and too simple. However; it IS a game that’s fun to play, especially with a friend or two. I played co-op for several hours with my wife (who doesn’t play games usually) and we had a great time. It’s just a chill game.

I think the biggest problems we had were that when there’s a lot going on it’s easy to lose track of which character you are, and the load times when walking through doorways were frequent and a couple seconds too long. One other nitpick I have: i think the button layout is a little bad. When I need to ditch a power to absorb another I have to hold down �Y’, but usually my teammates have killed the enemy I want before I can do so. The games generous with enemy respawns so it’s never a big deal, but this is definately not a precision platformer.

Some things I like - the helper characters and combo powers are reminiscent of previous Kirby games, even if the combos don’t function the same way as they did back then. The game looks great, I cannot understand why people would complain about the visuals here - my wife and I were both enjoying the animation details in the environment and especially the character models. And yes - it’s an easy game. We made it through 3 worlds and we only died once (my fault, actually). But easy is kinda the point if you ask me.

This is coming from someone who’s played almost all the games in this series. I don’t enjoy it as much as I did Superstar or Planet Robobot, but I like it more than Return to Dreamland and Triple Deluxe. Recommended for couch co-op with a less experienced gamer, or for anybody looking to relax and play an unabashedly easy and happy game.

As a fan of Kirby, I was excited about this game. However, this is one of the first Kirby games that I got bored with while playing it. If I could, I would give it a 3 1/2 star.

The Good:
The graphics look great and the music is really good.

I also think that this is a good foundation to build on for the Kirby series. The way that Kirby interacts with enemies is fun, and the combining of powers is reminiscent of Kirby 64.

You could tell that the designers love Kirby. There is at least one stage in particular that I am thinking about that indicates their love for the series. This was a wonderful expression of appreciation and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The bosses were interesting and the final boss was a lot of fun.

The Bad:
The levels felt generic and became monotonous.

While the combining of powers was neat, I didn't feel like I had to use them nor did I feel encouraged to explore the different powers.

There were hardly any secret rooms. When I play a Kirby game, I want to be rewarded for exploration. There was nothing to really explore.

I enjoyed previous Kirby games, and while I would encourage Kirby fans to try this one out, I would probably wait and pick it up second-hand if possible.

Decent typical Kirby game. Beautifully designed. Love the team aspect. It does seem easier compared to older Kirby games. However, the bosses can be difficult to beat in one try. Fun to experiment with the abilities and combos. Extra content to play makes it time consuming and more difficult to 100% the game. Can play as the friends too.
