I was sold on this game a long time ago. Preordered it and now I try and stay away from trailers and other revealing things. I like to know as little as possible about the game before I play it. I already know I'm going to love it. Kind of how I approach most movies I'm interested in.

Though I have to say the rocket barrel levels are usually my least favorite.

I pre-ordered Tropical Freeze today. I thought about just ordering it online, but I want to play this ASAP on Friday, so picking it up at GameStop it will be.

If you do the Nintendo Rewards program you can get an extra +10 coins, beyond the coins you get when you register the game, if you do their preorder questionnaire. I believe you have to enter the code within a few days of it being released. Offer expires today. Just a FYI

GameSpot is giving this game 5/10.....n/c
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/718938-donkey-kong-country-tro...

if you actually try to click on the review.. you'll get 404, but the review score is already visible
dont worry though, we have always known that gamespot is an absolute joke..

also..the reviewer is absolutely bias.. as seen here: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/wrestling-with-donkey-kong-c...

dont worry!
oh and Edge 7/10 for being too hard? too many casuals nowadays.. i hate it when games are too easy and you're told what to do and where to go 99% of the time

Pay close attention to the part of the trailer that features a rocket barrel, that level features a gameplay mechanic that's been all over the news of late. ;)

Hard Mode, maybe?

Not DK news, but when people realise, it might make DK's release even bigger news.

Are you referring to how the rocket barrel is controlled with a single button, like Flappy Bird? If so, that mechanic was introduced in Returns.

I'm a new the the series, but yes, the minute I hit that level it was all I could think about. Even more surprised now you've mentioned Returns that it's not been brought up in Flappy Bird pieces online.

5/10 just screams troll/clickbait.

In summary though so far we have,

Game Informer - 92%
Edge - 7/10
Official Nintendo Magazine - 86%
Some Swedish magazine - 7/10
Gamespot - 5/10
Famitsu 35/40

Hmm it looks like the game isn't blowing away the critics as much as I thought it would, but none the less I still think it looks frigging amazing.

yea.. the 5/10 review is by a biased idiot, but the others worry me...
well.. 7/10 edge, they said it was too hard.. that's a plus for me!

but nintendo magazine "only" 86% and another 7/10, i dont know... the game itself and the levels look absolutely stunning and the gameplay seems to just scream "this is a donkey kong game", so i'm not quite sure what im worried about
kinda curious what the reviewers disliked about the game

if it's just "it's too hard".. then im happy :)

I've read both the Edge and Nintendo magazine reviews and they both say similar things in regards to the game using too many familiar safe ideas from the previous game instead of coming up with fresh new stuff, which is fair enough, but I don't see that as an issue personally. Nintendo Mag also criticised the game for having a whole world being just water levels and they said a couple of the water levels were really dull, but they were in between amazing levels.

Actually this part doesn't bother me. TF will be my first DK game from Retro that I will play properly. Just played Returns a few hours.

I would like to preorder it, but I just get it on the 20th at my local electronic store. :)

I am very hyped for this game now, dkcr was pretty much a perfect platformer and this looks even better. Not that worried about the more of the same comments in the reviews, due to the same being near perfection

I didn't expect this game to get rave reviews all around like Super Mario 3D World. That was a rare phenomenon; like lightning in a bottle. Still, this game looks fantastic and better than Returns. That latter part would make this game a winner to me.

Indeed. If the game is better than Returns then it doesn't matter; Returns is one of my favorite games of all time, so that places TF even higher.

Seems kinda ridiculous to score the game lower for it being too hard...doesn't everyone complain that the Mario games are too easy? XD

And about the recycled stuff...did they expect Retro to take away the iconic barrels and mine-carts? The only valid point I can think of right now is if the puzzle pieces are hidden in the same way as past games, but even so I would expect some to be; you can only hide things so well. (Darn you 5-K Blast & Bounce!)

Been thinking lately, that Shulk would actually make a really good Smash Bros. character. (Still would rather have King K. Rool though)

There's a later article (albeit from a different writer) that's much more positive though.
http://www.gamespot.com/articles/feeling-the-love-in-donkey-k...

He does mention that the game gets tough quickly, which I think is what's turning off some reviewers.
