Completed world 3.

Pros

  • amazing soundtrack
  • great graphics
  • smooth gameplay
  • very creative level design
  • bosses aren't too easy
  • puzzle pieces are hidden really well

Cons

  • pretty long loading times
  • hard to tell which levels you've already fully completed, an overview like in sm3dw would have been nice
  • it seems to be a pretty short game since I've already completed 3 out of 6 worlds and I've played maybe 5 - 10 hours

It does, actually, dunno about while playing a level...but its on the pause menu. (Summary)

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...

This game is amazing, probably my favorite Wii U game thus far, with Super Mario 3D World.....the genius level design and atmosphere makes up for any features left out, not that I really care about miiverse or gamepad utilization anyways. Also, the pro controller is the way to go.

Hopefully Retro has some DLC planned for this title.

Can't believe some of the reviews for this game have been somewhat mediocre. What other modern platformer has levels these awesome? Save Rayman Legends, nobody comes close, but I prefer DKC"s outdoorsy vibe.

1. To me it wasn't noticeable. Except for the startup, the loading times are fast enough - for me anyways.
2. As Mizore said. ^^
3. 5 ~ 10 hours? There's a pretty big timespan in between. Let's say 10 hours and you've found all secret exits and k-level in these worlds - You can expect 10 hours more, that would make 20 hours. A good length for a game for that price.
It's hard to tell what you already played. Still if you find all puzzle pieces and KONG letters the game will do its job. And playing through the game a second time isn't that hard, because the atmosphere is amazing!

World 4 is my favourite of all. Love the water levels. x3

I'm done with this game the ice guys can have the island. It would of been a great game if the controls worked instead its a frustrating mess trying to control a disobedient ape. If this is the new low standard I can expect from Nintendo my Wii U will be joining the 360 in the trash if Nintendo is going to cut corners and charge full price for half baked games.

I don't know what you mean, i thought the controls worked great in this game. Maybe try changing your control scheme in the options?

Try it with the d pad configuration, it works the best IMO.

It's not an easy game, but it's not as hard as some people are making it out to be........it's more or less in line with the rest of the donkey country series.

Turn on the PC-/Gamemode on your TV. It just can be your TV... Because, the game's controls are just fine..
"Full Price"? Well, what I payed for the game was just half of the usual prices that most of the industry charges. The price for this game is freaking reasonable for a great game like this. ;)

Very pretty. I only did world 1-1 this morning and I've never played a Donkey Kong Country game. I like the lack of time limits and the controls are fine as far as I can tell.

@ghosto Either you're trolling or you're blaming your tv's latency issues on the game, itself, because the controls feel just fibe to me, and apparently everyone else on this board. Or maybe you haven't gotten used to DKs tight jump arcs or the timing. or maybe you're just bad and blaming it on the game. In any case, I know for a fact that there's absolutely nothing wrong with the game's controls, or I would've had a lot more trouble getting a Gold on any of the time attacks.

Quick question: Do you have to do the time trials to 100% the game?

Most people don't consider Time Attack part of 100%, no.

Nice job! Mind if I add you as a friend?

@Mizore
The trees are just happy, that's all :D
It is nice to see footage of someone who isn't rushing through the level.

And in other news, Amazon finally shipped my order, so it should be here on Tuesday :$

Yeah, though at the end (after I died) I kinda was like saying "screw it" and went all semi-pro or something. xD
But yeah, might upload another level before I go to bed...but it seems like the boss battles run ok in WMV format, so...I'm uploading the 4th boss soon. :p
