I think it would've been more fun had Stuffwell and the nigh-endless stream of tutorials not been included. i know, i'm exaggerating, but it really felt like every time I turned around there was some new power to learn, and a cheesy tutorial session to go along with it. whatever happened to just letting people figure things out on their own? tell 'em the power is there and then let 'em go?

Ya i have Kriby canvas curse and its absolutly great, just dont expect an average kirby game though, becuase its not.

I think I'm the only person here who did not like that game, and I couldn't put my finger on exactly why until i read this -- i wanted an average Kirby game, and Canvas Curse was too different for me to enjoy it at all. :3

sorry, dude... the first game bored me to tears, and I will not be picking up the second. I didn't like the way it forced you to create certain new things every so often (instead of you being able to pick and choose what you did and did not want to create or customize yourself), because you'd end up spending an extra forty-five minutes getting everything to look juuuuuuust right just to get through a level. there was almost no 'hey lemme just finish this level real quick' because there would be no 'quick' about it thanks to the item designing. also, the way that big things couldn't really be customized other than color-wise (like you couldn't make the rocket or submarine or whatever else a giant squid instead; you couldn't change the template given to you) kinda ticked me off; that's what i had been looking forward to the most from the TV commercial(s). the story was cute, but it wasn't enough to make me want to play it through again, not with that level of frustration involved.

in other words, they would have to make some significant changes to the design system in order for me to even think about going near the next one, and even if they promised to change everything i hated about the first, i'd still wait for reviews on it before buying. i seem to have dodged a bullet with Scribblenauts, after all, and i do remember someone being all shocked that I hadn't pre-ordered it because it was apparently going to be so awesome... sadly, not so much IMO. :/

You were playing the beta version, wern't you?

this is also something to consider. i didn't bother with video game demos back then (mainly because there would always be a crowd of kids waiting to play while their parents shopped elsewhere in the store), so if the demo was different than the release version, that may be why no one else remembers this 'captain' mode.

@warioswoods: i don't know if you watched them prepare your sushi for you at that place, but i used to have lunch with my Japanese co-workers while i was over there, and some of them loved the stuff... it came in a little plastic cup, and after opening it (and one girl would always take an appreciative sniff... gag me!), apparently the procedure is to stir it up thoroughly... ugh, it was always just a bean-filled mass of big, long, sticky strings of fermented grossness that reeked of feet. horrible to watch.

i did try a bite out of politeness (and just to say I had!) but never again will i eat that stuff. D:

Wii games are just fine lengthwise, for the most part (though I do wish there had been more to Mini Ninjas, and I hear Muramasa is kinda disappointing lengthwise as well). WiiWare, however... considering we're paying less than half the price of a retail game, we're getting what we paid for IMO.

@theblackdragon
Not to be picky, but the e-Reader didn't just "unlock" the extra levels (a common misconception); the cards that you scan actually contain all of the level data in the dotcodes. There were a total of 32 new levels distributed through the cards (many of them only in Japan), and, as I've brought up in other threads, they are all fantastic. The best new 2D Mario levels in ages.

though i stand corrected on that point, the bottom line is that the game cartridges themselves did not contain these apparently awesome levels; thus, i still have never had the chance to play them. i wish they'd included them on the cartridge and also a way to actually unlock them instead of going with the e-reader gimmick... surely if the data could be contained on a scannable card, it could've been included on the actual cartridge, right? SMB3, graphics and map updates and all, couldn't possibly have been a big enough game to take up the entire available space on a GBA cartridge... :(
