This is an excellent game and is still my favorite for 3DS. The characters are fun, the dialogue is very funny, the gameplay is tight, and the graphics are gorgeous. The music is also fantastic. Honestly, there's not much that I can find fault with it other than an interesting, but rather unnecessary plot twist (the Aurum). It was as if after they were taken care of, the story seemed to switch back to normal as if they were just a huge distraction and didn't add much to the plot.

As far as the controls, they are different, but the game gives you plenty of options to get used to it. Doesn't every new game have a learning curve, anyway? I also dispute the notion that Pit is a weak character. By Nintendo standards, he's like a character from a novel. In other words; he's a pretty deep character.

I never thought someone could explain it so perfectly! this is all the truth abou KI:U!!!!!! but seeing it personally and playing it takes all those arguments to a higher level!!!

These two comments make me want to buy it. Normally I don't much care for action or shooters or any type, but if there's a good story and fun dialogue I can enjoy it in spite of that.

@KittenKoder Best story on the 3ds! Crazy and confusing at times but its what makes the game that much better. There is talking through at least half the game and you're looking at 20 hours minimum so long as you don't blow through on easy levels!

You couldn't pay me to play KIU. The controls were made for righties anyways. Don't get me started on the goofy voice acting. This game is NOT FOR ZERKS. >:[

The Amazing story that took many twists and turns, hilarious dialogue which made me bust a gut, superb voice acting (quite an achievement by Nintendos standards), beautiful graphics, fluid controls (YES I said fluid. They have a learning curve but they're good.) SOUL MOVING MUSIC THAT BRINGS THE DEAD BACK TO LIFE and rich, streamlined gameplay made this one of the best 3DS games in my collection. I love this game. Only complaints is that the 3D could've been utilized better and that Masahiro Sakurai isn't planning on making a sequel.

Oh and the Multiplayer (especially Light vs Dark) is violently addicting.

If you have any doubt about getting this game, toss it out the window. It's an incredible experience.

How can you can you call the story short? I thought it was pretty lengthy myself, but I guess 25 chapters isn't enough for some people.

As for the controls, I never had a problem with them. Whether that's due to all the time I spent playing Metroid Prime Hunters, I don't know but they worked fine for me. People like to complain about the lack of story and voice acting in Nintendo games, but this game really delivers in both. Seriously, it has some of the best writing in any game I've ever played and great voice acting just to top it all off. All in all it's still my favorite 3DS game, Fire Emblem came close, but it couldn't top this beast.

I agree. I'm honestly really baffled by this accusation. And not only does the game have 25 chapters but it also has alternate routes, cutscenes, hidden weapons and three achievement boards to there's A LOT of replayablility within those 25 chapters.

you're not alone! when I got the game and reached Chapter 9 I thought "hey it's a portable game! the story was cool!" I was amazed when it didn't end there!

Didn't like the gameplay (the whole sky, land formula got boring I wish the land areas would have been more open for more exploration), didn't like the 4Kids dialogue, couldn't take any of the villains seriously since they had to make a joke/pun every 2 minutes, the controllers were terrible (also considering I had a CPP I wish they would have added support to it). IDK I guess it wasn't my kind of game so odds are I won't be playing any future entries if they do make any (since odds are they'll be similar to this one just improved). On a positive note if they made another game on the Wii U the controls would be great.

See I really don't get the hate on the controls. I've played plenty of twin stick shooters before, and Kid Icarus' touch screen controls are SO MUCH faster than using a second stick. If you tried to play the multiplayer with regular twin stick you would die before realizing why you died.

Then again people may have been trying to use the stylus. I just used my thumb instead.

I felt I would be able to jump right into Kid Icarus Uprising considering my mammoth amount of experience playing Metroid Prime Hunters, which uses the same inputs, but I was very wrong. My only issue with the controls are the flick turns, and that one mechanic causes a large chunk of the game to fall. It made combat disorienting, which made progressing through the game an annoyance. I had a difficult time getting into the dialogue and music of the experience due to that annoyance. Now on the other hand, this game's very solid with its air segments. The controls were precise and easy, which made the experience smooth and allowed me to get more involved with the atmosphere, dialogue and music. If I could just play the air segments and not touch the horrid ground segments, my playtime with Uprising would be higher and it may have been one of my most played 3DS games. As is though, Uprising is 50% great and 50% terrible. It's the most disappointing Nintendo title I have played, and is my least favorite 3DS game.

I use the stylus and find it pretty good, also some leftys complain but I(another lefty) find better using ABXY in land/multiplayer for me dodging is easier and not dashing when not needed too...
