Kirby Yablonski: "At the end of the day Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a solid game for those willing to take up the challenge. With some great visuals, complementary sound, and some classic yet controller throwing inducing gameplay, this game manages to do a lot of things right. That feeling of greatness when beating a particularly troublesome level is a reward in itself. Where Tropical Freeze seems to miss a beat or two is in its implementation of cooperative play, which personally I could do without. Platform gaming fans would be silly to pass this one over; however, the rest of you may want to “proceed with caution” as although it is a very good game, it is far from being an easy one to master."
