I consider myself an avid fan of platformers and I have to say this is one of the best in years and on top of that one of the absolute hardest i've played since snes I consider it an actual feat to have finished and I don't say that about many games to me this is easily a 9.5
it would be cool if they had donkey kong for the wiiu and if they rampage for the wiiu, that would be awsome.
this game is a truck load of fun, so addicting,yet incredibly hard, not sure why? its impossible to get through a level from the second time, let alone the first. and you cant play with diddy. ohh :( one of the best this year. control no issue though.
Easily one of the best games for the Wii. I am so glad DKC made a comeback. Hopefully there will be more in the future.
I swear this game was the hardest game I have played since the N64 days and that including games on playstation and xbox if you want a challenging game buy this
I played this in the electronics section of Target in Long Beach, and I had a lot of fun with it. My sister has a Wii, and I just might get this someday.
They didn't really talk about it, but this game is brutally difficult. I generally consider myself pretty good at video games, and the there are some levels that I simply couldn't do. Tons of fun, though. Nintendo's sorry gift to their hardcore followers.
The visual style is amazing and is actually on Par if not,better than Mario Galaxy 2! The game brings Hard Difficulty back to those who crave it and it gets addicting and fun! If you have a wii, you'll be doing yourself a huge favor in buying this game.
I forgot to mention I had nothing more to say on the matter.This game is great,the Wii is great,Nintendo is great,gaming is great.Haters can hate all they want,I have my game,I'm happy.Wormkid_64 out!
@ Hiroo4 Two more things, 1: To say that someone who enjoys a good,honest,clean,fun game-minus all the shooting and violence that dominate the industry these days-needs to learn to game is very inaccurate indeed.A real has no need to go and slam the choices of others.You should learn that.It would make the world a better place. 2: You called me a counter troll.That is just admitting that your only purpose here is to troll,or I'd not be countering anything would I?If that is so,why are you wasting your time here? I hope people read these comments,and learn just to leave others alone,and stop feeling the need to slam their choices whenever they get a good review.
@ Hiroo4 Ok sonny,I know a good game when I see one.I've been playing games for nearly 20 years,and my dad has played them since they were invented.I'd wager we know a good game when we see one.And I'll bet you never enjoyed the REAL classics in gaming.To be honest,I blazed through reading your previous comment without realizing you just said that one of THE best games on the Wii and in the platforming genre should be DLC only.You obviously haven't played this game,and have no idea the scope of it.It is massive,challenging,and downright fun. To quote a reviewer ,"This game could have been stripped of all nostalgia and recognizable characters and re-named Steve the Gorilla's Bananaquest and I still would have enjoyed it just as much."He goes on to rate it a 9.5. Where's your nostalgia bit now?This game is far from outdated,and is worth every penny I spent on it. And the reason to have games that aren't only motion controlled is because the Wii is just as good for regular games. The Wii has a great list of games that do NOT ride on nostalgia,and I know because I own them.Yes there is plenty of shovel ware on the Wii,but if all you ever play is Wii sports or "Whoopie-Fun Shake em Up Mini Games 2" you are very much missing the best of the console. Side scrollers and platformers will never go out of date.They built the gaming industry into what it is,and almost all games 2 or 3D have platforming in them.
@Wormkid_64 Next to no motion controls eh? So why have a Wii? To play outdated side-scrollers for 60 bucks? Doesn't make sense to me.
@Hiroo4 I have next to no motion controlled games on my Wii at all.And my comments have nothing to do with trolling.I love this game,I love the Wii,and I love Nintendo.I was just saying so. If you don't like the Wii,don't look up its games and articles just to slam it and its fans. BTW,I also have a 360,which I do play.'Nuff said.
@Wormkid_64 I've had a Wii for few years. It's a gimmick. A very disappointing, cheap gimmick riding only on nostalgia. Learn to game, counter-troll. This game belongs in DLC category maybe.
this game is great! i got it yesterday and im already on woorld 4. Anyone who likes platforming, or nintendo, get this game now!
I have been trying to find this bloody game all day today and could not find a copy anywhere!!! Complete sell out here in the UK!!!
@claykenobi If you played the game then you'll understand, the tiki's are more resonable than King K.rool who steals them just to be a d*ck
This game doesnt get the respect it deserves :( Elsewhere every stinking shooter is getting credit :(
Amazing game-Highly addictive like it's predecessors..But couldn't Nintendo take a little more time to make the story have some sense into it?? Mind controlling barrakas? WTF?
I'm getting a wii for Christmas and I just may get this cauuse it reminds me of the good old days years gone by and I did use to play such a game and so can't wait until I get it.
@Lykanthrople Thanks for the advice, I'll get DK. About the Metroid series, I have never liked the series, but I did see the review for the newest installment (I forgot its name), and I might try it again. Thanks!
@Lofanator25 you should buy Donkey Kong Country - its just one of the best games for wii and i would say its better then mario bros wii. which really feels a bit hard when you start and a bit boring to get into the whole game. Can't say that about Donkey Kong - It isn't easy, but much more fun to try again then mario bros. and it finds the right point to get onto a higher level. And if you want to play a good shooter for wii, you may should buy the metroid prime collection including the whole trilogy - just one of the best series ever but its more an adventure and platformer game then a shooter, but first person, with a lot of action, good boss fights, awesome atmosphere and also great graphics.also created by retro studios just as DK - they just know how games have to be done and if you look at the user ratings i am not the only one who would say that, the prime collection got one of the highest user ratings you can find here one gamespot.
@popovicsasa-Well New Super Mario Brps. Wii is very hard, and for that reason it collects dust. With Goldeneye I have never owned a fps before, so it would be a shot in the dark for me. Sorry if I am starting to make you be my advice giver but I am picky.
My final thought:ALL HAIL RETRO STUDIOS,GREATEST DEVELOPMENT TEAM OF THEM ALL! I seriously cannot wait to see what they do next.
Electricgecko is right. I'm playing through the game cooperatively with my dad,also another file with my brother,and one single player file.With my dad,we're all the way into the last world,maybe a 3rd of the way through.Cranky Kong is a rich old ape thanks to us.We've spent millions of banana coins on extra baloons and they are going faster than coming.And guess what.We love it.Every death has been because WE messed up.The game has brutal difficulty in the later levels,and when you die,it's because you need to try again and improve your timing.This is the first game where I've thrown away SO many lives on the same levels,and I don't even care,because it is such a blast.The controls work PERFECTLY. Playing with the Nunchuck combo feels best,as you really feel like your pounding the ground,and you can just sprawl out on the sofa in the most comfortable way without needing you hands to be close,but that's just a lazy convenience. Electricgeko is 100% right.(Plus your screen name is cool.)
