Kid Icarus is pretty fucking amazing. The levels are fantastic, diverse and gorgeous looking, the characters are hilarious but take themselves seriously at times (except Palutena, she's always cracking jokes, which is why I love her so much), and the combat is top notch. There's never a dull moment with it, and on higher difficulties there's always that feel of adrenaline pumping whenever you play. It's not just a shoot 'em up, you have to really plan out who to take out first and keep your hands on that control stick to make sure you're paying attention for dodging. I also like how they show you if something's going to hit you in your blind spots with a little marker on your screen, that's insanely awesome. I can't tell you how many times that's saved my life, and I mean that. I'm in Crisis mode pretty much every level and I'm loving it.
Plus the diversity of the weapons is amazing. The weapons aren't just recolors with different stats, they all act differently, even within their own type of weapon. Plus some of them are way past cool. Beam claws? Twinbellows Cannon? Pretty much every type of Orbitar? Man, I never get tired of experimenting in levels with each of the new weapons I get. I don't think I've gone into a level yet with the same weapon before, and I've been into a lot of different levels. The best part is that it really allows the player to choose what type of fighter they want to be, allowing for a lot of flexibility in certain situations.
Ahh, this game is so fun. A+++ game.
