There's something about Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze that's just a little off. Maybe it's the way Donkey Kong doesn't quite land with the firm-footedness you'd expect from a Nintendo platforming mascot. Maybe it's because, despite the introduction of the likes of Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong as playable characters with new abilities, Tropical Freeze's levels see little in the way of new challenges or designs to accommodate them.
a very well designed, charming and extremely fun/addictive platformer with epic soundtrack get a 6?
it's the same site that gave Zelda SS a 7.5 and TLOU an 8 and gave the disappointing MW3(im a huge CoD fan) a 9
In a tidal wave of 9s and 10s, I wonder if GameSpot.com feel as stupid as they look.
The reviewer at Kotaku also found the game a bit hard (there's a video of him trying to play it and he blames his wussy amateur gaming skills on the game!!!) - they haven't released their review yet... I wonder why lol?
The state of some people who get into professional paid jobs in gaming is shocking.

Wow, Donkey Kong gets a lower score on Gamespot because the game is just too hard. Challenge is why we play games in the first place I thought.
this is a next gen title on Wiiu, crankey ftw
