    Kirby Battle Royale is an extremely simple party game. It shouldn’t be full-priced, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.

    Kirby: Battle Royale has potential to make you laugh and fun but, at the end, this adventure action game is not so good. With your friends, in multiplayer modes, will enjoy with its challenges but is not enough to reach the best Kirby's adventures.

    Kirby Battle Royale has a great premise, but squanders almost all of its potential. There is simply too little content to justify its price point and everything can be completed in just a few hours. Online is lacking, as players are limited to only playing with strangers in ranked and can only play with friends if they do so locally. Despite being one of the only Kirby games without his famous inhale ability, Kirby Battle Royale kind of sucks.

    Download play in Kirby Battle Royale will give a group a burst of fun, but after that it’s unlikely you’ll return for more.

    This isn't a bad game and some of the activities can be quite fun when played with real people. But these sub-games have always been the side-dish to the single-player main course, and without a worthwhile entrée, Kirby Battle Royale feels deficient.

    Kirby Battle Royale is a fun minigame collection that simply does not have what it takes to really stick. May be if the online features would work more smoothly, we would be more positive, but those are a disappointment too.

    Really, it's hard to recommend this game, period. To see two rich, generous Kirby offerings on 3DS followed by something so stingy and lacking in imagination is depressing. [Christmas 2017, p.81]

One of the best Kirby spin-offs I've played yet. This is if you took out the main Kirby game and replaced it with a few more mini games, that's basically this game. But they do it so well, it's just very fun. The controls are very responsive, all the games are fun, there's just some that are better than others. The only issues I have with it are the re-spawn times, the ghost in the Coin mini game and the fact that the main story hub doesn't have a lot to it. I was hoping to see different areas for each set of games and tournaments you play, but that's just a minor complaint. The rest of the game is just so great. P.S. I love the main menu music. Expand

That said in incredbly fun, which is something it shares with basically every other Kirby game. I'd say give a look at how it plays and if it feels like the gameplay would meddle well enough with you, go for it. Expand

This Is The First Ever Kirby Game That Sucks So Badly, First Of All, The Voice Actors, Why Did They Make The Kirby Voice Cute And Not The Others?! But The #1 Problem is The Presentation, The Mini-games Are Just Pure Boredom, The Story is WAY too Short, and to Top it off, the Whole Thing is Boring. Expand
