I am wondering if I might actually have too many games on the go at the moment. Mainly Skyrim, Skylanders, 3D Dot Game Heroes, VVVVVV and now this. Hmm.
Not being a fan of the original Kid Icarus from all those many years ago, I wasn’t really looking forward to the 3DS game. Until I saw some videos and reviews a few months back. Then it was an instant NEED.
Frankly, it’s fantastic. It looks great, and I really like the constant banter between Palutena and Pit. The on-rails shooting bits are excellent, and, despite the nasty camera on-foot, those sections are fun too. Loving all the massive silly baddies too. One turned me into an aubergine. No, really.
There are a billion and one things to collect. Weapons of many kinds to collect, fuse and modify. You can “bet” on each level, offering up currency for better rewards on harder difficulties. So far, I’ve cowardly stuck to 2.2 (out of 9).
I’m four episodes in, and really enjoying it. However, I can’t play it for more than an episode at a time because the way you have to hold the 3DS and stylus is awkward and painful. Oh well.
