I'm going to buy this.

Posted by Kjellm87

I'm so glad this is scoring good, I haven't been this hyped in a long time

Posted by TheMasterDS

Was hoping for a 5/5. Shame, guess it won't have a shot at Giant Bomb's Wii GOTY.

Posted by GlenTennis

Awesome. Can't wait.

Tits. Between this and Game Informer's review, I feel pretty damn justified in my pre-order. I never doubted you Retro.

Wish I had a Wii.

Posted by smcn

This game will have sold a Wii once I get a job. Based on the QL alone I'm positive it would be my second GOTY pick after Mass Effect 2. Though it is kind of disappointing there aren't any underwater levels. They always had the best music.

Posted by Junior_AIN

This is 5/5 without a doubt.
 
Finally the waiting is reaching an end! Just can't wait anymore!

I'm so happy Nintendo decided to bring DKC back. It's also great that the game is terrific (as far as I can tell) with a few minor issues. I only hope that Nintendo has a trilogy planned this time around as well, so as to continue perfecting the formula... 
...and maybe bring some characters back.

@TheMasterDS: 
 
Just remember that Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, a 4 star reviewed game, won the Wii GOTY last time.

It's really a shame that there is no Classic Controller or Gamecube Controller support for a game that demands precision platforming and critical timing on a 2D plane. I wonder if I will be less forgiving of the game's unnecessary waggle when i pick this game up.

I want this so bad.

No snow levels no buy. Inexcusable for a winter release. Not even trolling.

Posted by Claude

Curious, in the Quick Look, you mentioned not even trying the Wii Remote and Nunchuk combo because you didn't care. You say you preferred the Remote on its side in the written review. Did you finally give the combo a try? Or did you still not care? Just a thought, game looks pretty cool.

@Kodo_Beast: That's true, I had forgotten about that. Another Brad game if I remember right.

I love me some Retro Studios. Therefore I might have to play this.

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

I'm gonna get this. Also great first sentence Brad.

Posted by AuthenticM

They need to get David Wise for the sequel.

This looks absolutely fantastic. Retro appears to have done it again. Those bastards are undeniably one of the industries top developers. I cannot wait for their next game; after this of course. Maybe we'll get another trilogy! 

Posted by Sawboss

I have always been a huge fan of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kongquest, so I am a little bummed that this game takes most of its beats from the original. That being said, the original was still a hell of a platformer and I trust this will be a great time.

Edited by JJWeatherman

I've never been the biggest Donkey Kong fan, but after reading this and watching the QL.... me want! 
 
AC: Brotherhood and Donkey Kong are definitely going on my christmas shopping list.

Posted by issun187

Can't wait to play this! I loved the DKC games back in the days.

Posted by Kartana

I'm sorry but is this the new standard for reviews on GB these days? What about multiplayer? Thanks for nothing!

Posted by BBQBram

Ah yes, this sounds pretty good. I was gonna get it anyway, but now I know it's not just out of hype. Thanks as always for the great review!

THIS. So many TIMES. HOW CAN there be no SNOW LEVELS? That's just GONNA MAKE me mega :(
Edited by Digifiend

What took them so long to do a proper DKC sequel? The last one was DK64, over a decade ago! This should've been on the Gamecube five or six years ago. Better late than never though.

Posted by CookieMonster

Decent review, Brad. Might pick this up some time.

I was trying to remember how many games have GC support, and Smash Bros is all that came to mind until damn that's a lot.  So yes, poor decision on their part.
Posted by demontium

Oh this comes out tomorrow. God Nintendo doesn't advertise for shit.

Shame that the waggle controls hold the game back. I'm still going to buy it and love it though.

Posted by Gambit1024

Can't wait to play. Now if only they'd make a sequel to Donkey Kong 64 ;)

Posted by Sunspots

It's rare Wii games like this one that leaves me with a feeling of regret after selling my  Wii. Where is that Wii HD Nintendo?

Posted by agentboolen

I forgot this was out so soon!!!  Just got a $50 visa card, I think I might use it on this.    

Posted by TripMasterMunky

That sucks about the shake controls. Especially with how essential the roll was in previous DKC games. Obviously they changed the gameplay here to not focus on it so much, but still. It'll be weird NOT rolling all the time in a DKC title. 
 
Also, yeah, it sucks theres no snow/water levels. But you can't have everything I guess. I really wish they would've stuck to the DKC art style. The graphics seem better on the SNES titles. Yes, they were pre-rendered sprites, but those 3d renders graphics-wise still hold up today and were damn good when released. Just wish they would've leaned more towards a style like that, but oh well. Still can't wait to play this.  
 
Also I hope co-op is fun and not annoying. I loved played old DKC titles co-op.

Posted by robbob88

Good review. Sad to here that the game does not support the Classic Controller considering that the design is a beefed up SNES controller. 

Posted by MachidaX89

I dont know really. I loved the game back when i was a kid. But it doesn't look like something that i would 
spend my money on right now.

Edited by Lingxor

No mention of the music?  I've heard it's mostly remixes of old themes, but I guess it probably wouldn't stand out either way since they didn't get David Wise back.

Posted by pplus0440

i hate motino controls. but i will buy anyway
Posted by rpoland123

thanks brad
