Should I get it?

I want to buy Kirby and the Cyrstal Shards (the actual game, not on VC.) On Amazon.com, I found it for $13 (this includes shipping and handling), 93% positive rating, with 6808 ratings. It comes only with the cartridge. Is it worth my money?

Re: Should I get it?

Well, I have a Wii with Internet and all, but for some reason, I prefer owning the original games.

Re: Should I get it?

same here, Heck, I'm a collector in a sense going out to buy a 3DO and a Neo Geo Cd with my birthday money but I buy them to see what the systems were like and for entertainment when there is nothing to do outside in the winter.

Re: Should I get it?

So when the Wii is obsolete what happens to all the VC games you bought? Will they transfer over to the next system in any way?

Re: Should I get it?

13 bucks seems like a little much. I know I can buy it at my local buy sell trade store for 10.

And I know you have probably played it and like it, but if you haven't, I hated that game.

Re: Should I get it?

Cameron, Id recomend to only buy games that you can't get on the virtual console.
If you want an awesome game get Duke Nukem 64, the other ridiculously awesome
fps on the N64 aside from Goldeneye.

And second of all, it's 10.50$ on the virtual console so it's best to go with VC.

Duke Nukem 64 is Duke Nukem 3D exactly.

Well, I've never played it, but I've seen YouTube footage and read some reviews. It interests me, and when a game interests me, rarely does it dissapoint me.

Unfortunately, my local game stores do not have Kirby 64. There is only one game store around me that sells N64 games, and I've bought a couple from there (F-Zero X, Star Fox 64, Yoshi's Story). I'm on the watch for Super Smash Bros, though.

All it did was remove the mature themes, not the gameplay.
In fact, weapons and equipment were added with new bosses.
The only let down was the music, almost every song was removed...
