So, when buying a 3DS last year Kid Icarus was one of the main games I was waiting for.
I cried every time it was delayed, my money was waiting all the time till I found it in a store.

A few days before I got it, I read some reviews and I was surprised that people complained about the controls. To be honest they scared me so much that I started wondering, after a year of waiting, if I should buy it.
I will never understand the complaint about the controls, I understand that people would like a second analog stick but..
this game is too fast for an analog stick, the touch screen works just perfectly!

Now, the plot may not be very deep, but there is a lot of funny moments and moments that.. nintendo fans will love.
You like nintendo? Get this game, really.
There is a lot of references to other franchises, like this enemy:

No idea where it comes from? Here a little quote from KI:U:
Pit: the Komayto actually look like little Metroids
Viridi: This game universe and that game universe have nothing to do with each other!

Or one of my favorites, from the description of one of the weapons:
Tired of pixies asking you to listen?

Yes, yes, this is a reference to this little one:

Ok, now something for the normal people xD
The gameplay is great, you will battle both in the air and land. None of them is too easy or too hard, both are very satisfying.
The bosses, enemies, weapons, the characters, the music.. everything is so great that I repeated the stages over and over again, and still loved it.
Oh, and there is a really nice difficulty system where you "bet" your hearts to play on a higher "intensity". You can get many bonuses from that (like better weapons or unlocking some "intensity doors").

There is also one thing that surprised me here, the multiplayer is really good!.
Both on the wifi and local you have 2 options, either battle everyone vs everyone and get as more "kills" as you can, or divide into teams.
Simple, and it works perfectly..

In conclusion.. Go and buy it now! .. and play with me

PS. Sorry for all the mistakes and other symptoms of "bad english". English is not my first language and I try my best.. but I sometimes do fail ._.

    ^ You do. :3 It's true. I have one.

    Anyway, give me money and sure, I'll buy it! I do want it, but it'll be after Tales of the Abyss cause...I want that more. And THAT will probably be after I preorder Black 2. XD

    Well.. I have nothing against it but I'm not sure if I can write a good review.
    This thing here is not worthy being called "a review" xD

    I'd love to buy you this game but I'm short on money myself :<
    And there are still MGS3D and RE:R that I hadn't bought and I have to get them..
    and B2W2..
    where is my money tree when I need it? T.T
