Retro's talents wasted on a template created in the early 90s.

Wow how did you get a copy?

Vegamyster1714d ago

DKCR was one of the best 2D platformers in years, this one looks even better.

I think the game will be good but I get what sknygy is saying. It seems the Big N has Retro working on nothing but DK. I would love to be proven wrong and have them working on something epic behind closed doors.

'' ....nothing but DK....''

2 DK games is alot? Retro wanted to work on DK, and I doubt Nintendo is forcing them to do it considering they let them work on 3 Metroid Prime games which weren't big sellers.

I do wish they could work on a new fresh IP.

You know that Retro games asked to work on Donkey Kong, and then asked to make another one, right?

I cant wait for this game missed DK on the Wii so cant wait for this on the WiiU.

Nerdmaster1714d ago

It's one of Nintendo's consoles greatest advantages: backwards compatibility. If you do have a Wii U, you can play Wii's DKC Returns and you won't miss anything. DKC Returns is a great game and deserves to be played even after you play Tropical Freeze.

I was thinking of picking it up. Does it have the classic musical sound old DKC had?

mcstorm1714d ago

Yeah I was thinking about getting it on the 3DS rather than the Wii but I have that many games to get through at the moment ill pick it up down the line but have this one on pre order.

Vegamyster1714d ago

The Wii version runs at 60 fps vs 30 fps on the 3DS plus some small fps drops, that being said i have the 3DS version and it's still very enjoyable.

mcstorm1714d ago

Thx for the info like I said wont be getting it for a bit so ill keep that in mind when it comes to me picking it up.

You can pick the Wii Donkey Kong Country up for your Wii U. It will keep you busy waiting for this.

mcstorm1714d ago

I know I just have too many games to get through at the moment. I have Windwaker HD, Pikmin 3, Mario 3D World. luigiU, Forza 5, KI, Fifa 14, BF4, Sonic lost world and Splinter Cell to finish off as I don't have enough to game like I have in the past lol.

Geobros1714d ago

I like this magazine, i was buying it in the very past years....86% means that the game is a must buy. And if you have not a Wii U then the console is a must buy too....

stragomccloud1714d ago

Such an underrated console.

ape0071714d ago

the wii game is a masterpiece, this looks even better

Looking forward to this game, but now can we have Retro work on a fully rendered 3D game. I have had enough Great 2D platformers the past 4 years. NSMB/NSMBWii U /Luigi, Rayman, Donkey Kong. Let the Indies do the 2D and let Great Studios Like Retro(not that indies are not great,but you know what I mean) work on the big guns.

I want a platformer that I can openly EXPLORE.
