Is kid icarus uprising a good game?

I know a lot of people bash it for the controls but i've played Metroid Prime Hunters before and don't really care about how bad the controls are.
Besides that, is it a good game? I was thinking of getting it. How long is it btw? Thnx guys.

It has 25 stages, A L O T of unlockables, online multiplayer, it is a great game, I love the voice acting and the funny conversations during gameplay, in fact, I spent a lot of time retrying some stages because I was not paying attention to the game because I was laughing at the conversations.

If you don't care about the controls go for it, you won't regret it.

I can't say the exact length of the game, but depending on the difficulty (there's an extremely wide range of difficulty options) and how you breeze through it, anywhere from 13 hours to 20 hours. With an extreme amount of replayability.

Amazing, well varied game, that has great mechanics and level design, as well as pretty humorous dialogue. The music is also some of the very best (they got multiple well-known composers, and this is some of their best work) gaming has to offer.

Also, the game controls fine. Raise the sensitivity, first and foremost. The very first chapter of the game is extremely short and uncomplicated (one straight line, and one curve) so that you can get used to the controls.

There are 25 chapters, but the game has a lot of unlockable stuff in every stage. If you've ever played Kirby Air Ride or Super Smash Bros Brawl, unlocking stuff is like in those games. The gameplay is part rail shooter and part running around. Each mode is fun, and the multiplayer is fun as well.

it is one of the very worst games ever made

if the controls don't get to you, the horrible voice acting and dialogue will, unless you're one of those fanboys who enjoys such drivel as "look! Pit's mentioning Nintendogs! ha ha ha! isn't that funny?!"

I loved it. It's actually my most played 3DS game with 110 hours!..But I can't play the game anymore, I'm burnt out on it. Same was with Metal Gear Solid Peacewalker when I clocked in a little over 200 hours.

Take this and make it the exact opposite. That's how KI:U really is.

What's he gonna do? Come back?

It's a good game, but not worthy of "3DS Game of 2012". It has tons of content and great multiplayer, sure, but the story tends to get a tad bit tedious and repetitive. The controls aren't bad, but they're don't make the game as fun as it was intended to be. I give it a 7/10 in my book.
