The Completionist Edit

Jirard reviewed Kirby's Dream Land 2 for the 159th episode of The Completionist, as well as the first episode of Season 5.

Jirard takes a moment to talk about the game’s director, Shinichi Shimomura, and his mysterious nature.

Jirard notes how the game’s story is minimal, but is curious of the Dark Matter story continued in Kirby’s Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64.

Jirard compliments the graphics as crisper than the original game, especially with the Game Boy Color and Super Game Boy. He’s also fond of the game’s soundtrack. However, he notes that visually the game is very similar to the first game.

Jirard appreciates the power-ups, especially when combined with the animal buddies. He’s especially fond of the parasol, and considers Rick his favorite of the animal buddies. He also brings up the Rainbow Drops, which he considers fun to collect.

Jirard believes it’s worth it to unlock the final boss, but finds the boss rush move challenging.

Overall, Jirard finds Kirby’s Dream Land 2 to be lighthearded and fun, as well as easy for the most part.

At the end of the episode, Jirard announces that February will be Super Hero month, and Arkham City will be the first review of the month.
