It would be nice to have a demo of this game. That may or may not convince a lot of people to get it.

I'm left handed, so I'll need the CPP to play - kinda puts me off a bit :(


Don't worry. I'm left-handed and I beat the game in two days. I don't have Circle pad pro. You'll be fine. all you have to do is move the stylus with your right hand and that's not as bad as it seems.

What is the stylus used for? It is for controlling the camera like in metroid prime hunters, or just for changing weapons etc. like in gta chinatown wars?

I definitely think a demo would do some good. Playing the game blew my expectations away (and i was already excited for it). I think people still unsure would see how great it is after playing the demo and want to pick it up :p

Well how much time do you get with the controls in the first level? Is it mainly a tutorial or does it just throw you right into the game.

I hope there will be a demo, because it's going to be a couple of months before I can get this game. :(

Honestly it pretty much throws you right in while Palutena is telling you what to do. But if you turn the dialogue off, it's just like every other level.

You aim with the stylus. In the land-battles you also move the camera, in the air-battles the camera is fixed.

Aiming with the stylus is great, it is fast and very accurate. Moving the camera with the stylus on the other hand is somewhat hard to learn.

Not that the other levels are too much alike.

Palutena tells you in many levels, what to do. This helps to get the weak spot of a boss or similar things.

And there are separate tutorial-videos, so you can watch these to get the controls.

I'd have to say that besides RE:Revelations, it is the best game on 3ds.  The game is beautiful to look at, an absolute joy to play and the charm from the soundtrack and the dialog is incredible.  It just simply offers soo much for the money that even without the online it would be worth it.  That said, the online battles are awesome.  Hopping into a game is super easy and fast and I have experienced zero lag or framerate issues...and there is a lot going on.  The particle effects are insane at some points.  A leader board and perhaps mic chat option would have been nice additions.

I'd have to admit that the controls take some playtime to get used to, but once you've got it...it just works great.  Even for myself, with larger hands I haven't experienced any discomfort.  It would have been nice if the option to use the circle pad pro was included for more than just lefty control...but I really have no problems with controlling the game as it is.

A great game and a must have.  Anyone thinking should stop thinking and go get it is my advice, its a great value and worth the money.



I think it is an excellent game. I can't actually find anything wrong aside from maybe one or two individual pieces of level design on the land battles. Everything about the game is to me very impressive. I reckon it is one of the best handheld games of all times and alongside Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and Legend Of Zelda; Ocarina Of Time 3D my fave game on the system.

One thing that I don't understand is why all the fuss about the controls? I find them easy, intuitive, accurate and comfortable. Maybe not the most convenient but still excellent. I've played it for over 2 hours straight without a hint of discomfort or ever once feeling that they were awkward.
