If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Kid Icarus is a cult game that will receive a third insalment after twenty years. Twenty years is a long ass time. Too long if you ask me, and thats problem with Kid Icarus: Upsing. Being 16, I wasn't there for Kid Icarus or Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters but I have seeked them out, and I have beaten them. Looking at Kid Icarus: Uprising looks to me like a squel only in name. I dosn't look like the classic at all. I know that games Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Donkey Kong 64 altered game play drasticly but there is one differnce between those series and the Kid Icarus series. Those games had evolution and progression. There was nothing leading up to this new version Kid Icarus (unless you count is modle in Super Smash Bros. Brawl). Perhaps if Nintendo had been releasing Kid Icarus games throughout the years I'd except this game without argument but thats not what we have here. Instead we have a game that seems to have no respect for franchise it get it's name sake from. It looks like an amazing game though. I intend to preorder it when I get the chance. I just don't see it doing justice to the original 2 games. I feel like they should have given this game a differnt name. To summarize it's a great looking game that is a sequal only in name.
