I have heard that the game is hard, but just how hard? Is it much harder than Mario, say 3D World. Or is it about the same? I really would love a challenging platformer. I would like to here your thoughts.

Well, I am losing lots of lives and I am in World 3. I need to be like in World 6-8 in Mario 3D World to lose lots of lives.

Of course difficulty is a subjective thing, but I found it harder than DKCR.

I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

A little more bearable (ok my mind blanked out here, dunno if I spelled that right. xD) than Returns...but TF still has Mirror Mode, and you know how nightmarish that was in Returns. lol

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...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

imo, DK is much harder than 3D world. If you're up for a challenge, this is the way to go.

The levels have a much better flow to them than Returns. The platforms seem more user-friendly. The enemies are more user-friendly like, how many times did I die in Returns over a stupid little crab? I can't even count. So I'd say the difficulty is just improved. Don't hesitate getting this game as it's one of my favorite platformers now

It's hard. It's really, really, really hard!

But, seriously, it is hard, but it's a good challenge. It's harder than Returns, and while the mine cart and rocket barrel levels are a little easier because of having two default hearts rather than just one, it's not by that much. Of course, difficulty can be subjective, but if you're going for 200% completion, boy, do you have a game on your hands!

It's about as hard as the original DKC games were minus the wonky save system but with longer, not necessarily harder, bosses.

It's bearable, I'd say harder than most 3D World levels. Especially the boss fights. Goodness they're hard. It's still a very fun game though!

Despite my video review's statement, I actually maintained 90+ lives from the end of World 2 through the rest of the game, for what that's worth to you, lol

Tropical Freeze is an easy game to just rush trough it to the final boss (but not as easy as rushing through 3D World to the final Bowser). But what DestinyMan said, if you're going for 200% completion in Tropical Freeze, it's quite difficult. The KONG levels are much more difficult than the bosses, IMO.
And it's the hidden levels and challenges that makes Tropical Freeze great.

Current Top 10: DK:TF, Pikmin 3, MK8, Scram Kitty, SM3DW, LEGO City: Undercover, Wonderful 101, Rayman Legends, Stick it to the Man, Wind Waker HD
Looking forward to:
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, SSB U, Affordable Space Adventures, Bayonetta 2, X, Hex Heroes, Yarn Yoshi, and more

It's hard as nails at some points, but not to the point of annoyance. RETRO pretty much nailed the difficulty in these titles IMO. It's hard, but very rewarding.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors
