Kid Icarus: Uprising is a long time. It was 21 years since the last entry in the original series and of course the fans of Hero Pit angels have asked for a new game for a while. Despite a fairly modern makeover, is a pure celebration of the original lifting 1987th It is a primary obstacle in the way the game controls, but once you master the inquiry learning curve provides a deep and satisfying experience. The combination of target shooting with air-based platforms, some on land and plenty of adjustment, it's a great return to the angel who could.
Lift the good story told by an angel flying, struggling for humanity against the forces of the underworld, of the infamous Medusa led can be saved. The plot is a fusion of entertainment from Greek mythology and the charm of Nintendo.Thanatos, the god of death takes the form of an eccentric ogre, sensitive, while the mine itself is charming, naive and always courageous. Since you can not fly, which is supported by the Goddess of Light, Palutena. It is the wind beneath the wings, but only for five minutes at a time. This game has a purpose, the opening of each chapter, a load Pit fly, making enemies in a shooting gallery on rails reminiscent of Star Fox also leads to the exchange between the two most entertaining.
The uprising is a really funny, beautifully written play. Constantly before his self-confident and never have to break the fourth wall, the script lines of cheese offers a knowing wink, and often a follow-up sarcasm. Voice-game is not perfect, and skits that are playing along the action is a perfect complement to the direction of the colorful, surrealistic art. It is rare for a game that is laugh out loud funny to see further, but this time, not missing a beat Kid Icarus, of Greek mythology to the deformity comic effect, and take a lot of references to Nintendo, all of which would be a shame, in ruining advance.The work is complemented by an attractive original music Jaunty with frequent nods to the original band remains.
The game is a shooter high rating at its base and air base sections, is a wonderful experience from the beginning. Pit Road is a brand, but can move the screen to avoid enemy fire. A grid of floats in front of him is controlled by the stylus or the buttons on the face, and used that goal to enemies, while the left button triggers the shoulder. It's just fun, rewarding, the most interesting visuals shown in the background. Pit darts at volcanoes around the cities, and even a trip into space. The weaving in the air and pick up enemies and fire lasers at aircraft giant is really exciting.This is when Pit to believe that there is a little harder, or at least out in the beginning.
In ground-based levels, which directly control the well, the trip to the area and the leadership at the top of the enemy. In this case, control the needle a little loose. The pen is a bit awkward to 360 degree approach, and the 3DS material is not well developed, to be held in the desired position for any period of time. The game comes packaged with a plastic, but many situations are not ideal. Fortunately, the controls are customizable (through the left circle to offer support pillow if you have to circle Pad Pro add-on, but it should be noted that there are two control options are cash). The best option is to use the face buttons to control the development, while Pozo is on the ground, but it's worth experimenting to a control method that suits you. First, the button takes some getting used to the lens for some time, but as soon as the sensitivity and play with the possibilities of self-purpose and movement controls, things start to click. It is undisputed that there is a major obstacle at first, but once you get to grips with everything, everything starts to feel natural.
These sections require one country to push through a pit area in order to achieve a competitive edge. Typically, this includes taking in waves of enemies, select the sky with a variety of ranged weapons, or moving in close melee action soon.Opponents require different strategies, they can be shielded enemies attack from behind to avoid the enemies with weaknesses that must be met, and some enemies altogether. There are also some vehicle theft, with a rapid-fire mechanism provide the climax. These sections of land are more thoughtful, complex problems that their air, and most of the time, the two styles together very well.
Sometimes, however, the structure of the land portions can be problematic. Some come in the thin platforms and traitors, and the tendency of pit operation often leads to a decrease in spam. The Circle Pad is not precise enough to prevent the race from time to time accessories (made by playing in one direction), and is cleared by a health problem precious autumn, which can be a problem.
Mostly, however, the game is sensitive enough to avoid these mistakes and instead focuses on his versatile combat system. Beauty and the firing a powerful shot from the left side, while the rapid-fire by pressing the shoulder button can be achieved. Come, and can hit enemies with a melee attack. There are nine different types of weapons, each with many weapons. Firearms, for example, offer long-distance moves slowly, but forcefully, shooting clubs while you can distract your opponent and devastating blows at close range. Other types are made from the leaves and the staff of the claws and bows. Each weapon has its own statistics and the fans, and you can spend a lot of time customizing your loadout.
The adjustment is facilitated in part by the fusion system. Weapons can be merged to create new and more powerful weapons, and this aspect of the insurgents simply add a lot of depth. With the help of a grid, you can see the results of the sacrifice of possible weapons and adopt the merger, to create something new. His art section allows you to create a weapon that test a driving range, and there are lots of fun in the search for the perfect weapons to match your playing style fit, you weapons in gemstones that can convert to be replaced by Street Pass to other players, so that they hold the gun, the stone will melt with a gun of their own, or sell the jewel.
You buy new weapons with the heart, the currency in the game, then take them into battle, or merge with existing weapons.Heart can be obtained by defeating enemies in the game or bet at the beginning of each level. There is a difficulty slider that lets you choose to spend your heart to lose the heart of the problem or can increase the bet. The question of risk / reward is a clean system that gives little incentive to level again. The same goes with the look of defiance, to be won in the heart, the powers and weapons to meet the targets set in the puzzle board. Skills are also part of the arsenal of the pit. They range from the promotion of skills, such as healing and a high jump, the government offensive, the impact of meteors and giant lasers. Each branch has a shape corresponding to otherwise prepare as part of Tetris, and the struggle that puts them in a grid that is in itself a mini-game fun to memory management.
The multiplayer mode can be played either online or on site, and that surface modes can take your hard earned money for weapons and power in combat, either in teams or in a free society for all. Free for all functions up to six players head to head trying to kill each other. The game takes place in a variety of field-steps to capture a solid deathmatch experience, but one that will draw your attention for long.
Light vs. dark, the way the team works on the most interesting of the two modes is concentrated. Here teams kill each other until the computer runs of life, when the player died, transformed into an angel past, whether good or dark counterpart. It is therefore a case to protect your angels are trying to exhaust the lives of other instruments, turn to your angel and conquer. It is a simple and fast pace of the multiplayer mode in combination with commands from the ground means that something is missing from the list of single-player campaign.This is a great way to show your arms and fun with friends, but the real meat is in their sole story mode.
Once in your approach, and raised a huge amount of fun. Once you get over the initial discomfort of control, there is a deep and satisfying action game is here.It's always the occasional low agility, but once you sow the handle with a control system that suits you get, they are thin. If one of the most attractive 3DS games to date, some large 3D images that are used to convey is the depth of the particular flight sequences. Cute, fun and full of content, Kid Icarus: Uprising is a loving tribute to the legacy of Nintendo.
