If you check the more from gamespot section, it says 5/10 in there.

I'm curious to see the actual review...

The bad:

Gorillas are sexist.

Too hard.

looks more like a 7/10 title you buy for $20 six months after the game been released

@silversix_: It's a nintendo game. It'll still be $50 five years from now.

Would be hilarious, as the game likely deserves significantly higher (being Retro and everything)... but it would make for an entertaining time if true.

If that link is true, it's a pretty damn huge gap between it and the game informer review. I have a hard time seeing McShea give a platformer--especially one made by Retro Studios--that low of a score, but it wouldn't surprise me. McShea is a complete joke nowadays, with no consistency whatsoever. Kevin V's the only one worth listening to tbo.

5/10, wow, even with the giant surprise Reggie told us about playing as Cranky Kong? Hmm, maybe Nintendo has spent too much time getting high off their own supply...

There is no way. I can't see it getting a 5. So it is probably true.

So a game deserves a high score just because Retro made it? What kind of shitty reasoning is that?

Also Tropical Flop. Nintendo has no games(3rd party support) and most of the exclusives have been lower than normal quality.

I can't comment on what the game deserves, as I haven't played it, but if everyone else scores the game 8-9, I'm not going to be influenced in any way by a 5 on Gamestop.

Operative word you seem to have missed: likely

Neither of us have played it, so we cannot comment on it's quality. However, given Retro's track record, especially with the franchise this game is a part of, it's entirely possible that the game is as good or better than it's predecessor.

I said MOST. Zombii U, Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, Nintendo Land. None of those was anything special just going by the scores and sales.

@StrongBlackVine: pikmin 3 got solid 8's and a few 9's across the board. Unless you're one of those idiots who thinks that anything lower than 9 is trash, its a good game

It´s the way fanboys use to discredit a review these days.

If it´s McShea then it has been McShea´d,if it´s Carolyn then it´s something something transgender,if it´s Kevin it´s because he´s gay,if its McInnis,Watters or whatever it´s because they´re idiots,if it´s Danny must be because he´s british.

@StrongBlackVine: Pikmin 3 is a treasure, and is the game I sunk the most hours into last year. Everything about Pikmin 3 was great.

All of those games are fantastic. If anything, that is a demonstration that Nintendo's exclusives are better than they've been in a long time.

If the score was true, I wouldn't really concern myself over it unless most other websites also score the game lowly.

Interesting, just found this Tom McShea article from last year:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/wrestling-with-donkey-kong-country-tropical-freeze/1100-6416779/

After playing for an hour, he thought it was fun, but was down about it being "just fun" and nothing ground-breaking or really new.

After Bioshock Infinite, it wouldn't surprise me if the 5 turned out to be the score.
