Picked up Kid Icarus the other day. It's pretty frantic. It plays similar to that of Metroid Prime Hunters except its 3rd person and one of the parts of every stage is played on rails. At the moment I'm playing with the stylus to aim..unfortunately the circle pad pro doesn't allow the usual 3rd person shooter controls.. just helps out lefties.. so playing with the stylus cramps my hand up a bit.
It does come with this stand though.. so maybe that might help things a little.....
As for the game itself, its pretty good. A lot of things to collect like weapons and powers.. then there's the whole heart exchange system thing which I don't completely get yet. and the banter between Pit and Palutena (and other characters) is pretty entertaining.. I've noticed a few times they refer back to the original game on the NES which is really great. HOWEVER.. all this banter happens during the game as your trying to concentrate on dishing and avoiding attacks, which is a bit distracting.. but it adds a great atmosphere while playing.. I think it would be a bit bland without it..
I like it. I'll probably be playing a lot of it over the next few weeks and so far would recommend it.
