Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

After lying dormant for two decades, Kid Icarus is back in his own adventure and has experienced quite the rebirth on the 3DS. Whereas the original NES and Game Boy entries were side-scrolling action platformers with the Metroid engine, this takes cues...

Uprising makes surprisingly great use of the system's online functionality. Not only can you use the StreetPass feature to swap items with folks and gain access to weapons and other gear earlier than just going through the game, but there are also two...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

It took about twenty-one years for the angel Pit to get a new game but it was well worth the wait. The newest addition to the Kid Icarus series is Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS and is quite a departure from the previous two games. While the...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

 

Mankind is on the verge of destruction. After being banished for over two decades, Medusa has returned in all her vengeful glory. With the forces of the Underworld at her command, she’s poised to conquer the planet and kill everything on it. The only...

Kid Icarus: Uprising has several things going for it. The story balances its surprisingly philosophical subject matter with a fine blend of self-aware humor, excellent voice acting, endearingly hammy characters. The rail shooting segments are...

Kid Icarus: Uprising Review

 

Cake? Where?!

Top notch graphics; Deep, replayable single-player; Balanced, competitive multiplayer; Tons of unlocks; Great writing; Intensity Slider

Painful controls; Learn to love it

Truly, Kid Icarus is the second-best Nintendo 3DS title available for the handheld, second only to Mario himself. As a Nintendo title, it's everything you could want from the publisher, despite the fact that the controls leave something to be desired...

Kid Icarus Uprising Review

 

It's been 20 years since Nintendo's Kid Icarus series has been on store shelves. Will Pit's return on the 3DS be his best showing yet?

Kid Icarus: Uprising Review

 

Kid Icarus: Uprising soars in this fast-paced and compelling shooter.

A deep shooter with tons of customization options ; Visually stunning, with excellent use of 3D ; Laugh-out-loud funny dialogue ; Colourful, fun art direction

Controls require getting used to ; Fiddly platforming segments

Occasionally, though, the design of the ground sections can prove to be problematic. A few take place on thin, treacherous platforms, and Pit's propensity for dashing often leads to an unwanted fall. The Circle Pad isn't accurate enough to avoid the...

Kid Icarus: Uprising Nintendo 3DS Review

 

Phenomenal soundtrack, thrilling Air Battles, over 100 weapons, 300 plus achievements, a plethora of creatures to pummel, witty dialogue, intense multiplayer matches, six AR cards in every box, StreetPass support

Flawed Land Battle controls, hard to listen to character conversations and fight at the same time, plastic stand has limitations

Nintendo routinely creates video games starring a variety of beloved characters. Yet for some odd reason, Kid Icarus' angelic hero, Pit, became trapped in the 90s, more specifically the 1991 Game Boy hit, Of Myths and Monsters.

Kid Icarus Uprising Review: Stunning Despite Stumbling

 

A landmark handheld revival that soars despite its frustrations.

In an age where annual installments are a normality in gaming, waiting20 years for a sequel seems preposterous. And yet the last time weguided the Pit on his own personal journey was in 1991's KidIcarus: OfMyths and Monsters on theoriginal Game Boy....

Kid Icarus: Uprising Playtest – Pit And (3D) Punishment

 

The first five minutes of each level are basically Sin and Punishment: Stylus Successor, but Kid Icarus: Uprising doesn't have to be as frantic.

Overall, there’s so much to Kid Icarus: Uprising to keep players interested from its own achievement system, to the multiplayer modes, and replaying stages at different levels to open doors with new challenges. As a fan of light gun games and on-rail...

Designed by Kirby and Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai, Kid Icarus: Uprising has players alternating between flight sequences and ground-based combat as angelic hero Pit confronts the dark forces of Medusa. In the air, the game is played like a
