You make no sense. Go ahead and call it what you want and the rest of the world will call it what it actually is.
If you think a game that uses 3D models and 3D environments is a 2D game then that's just awesome!

Some actual 2D platformers:Wario Land Shake It - 2D platformerKirby's Epic Yarn - 2D platformerMuramasa - 2D platformerRayman Origins - 2D platformerIf a game uses 3D character models and environments, then how is it in anyway a 2D game? Yes, DKCR handles like a 2D platformer but it it visually 3D and cannot be called a 2D platformer.

There are genre definitions out there, you know, and any one of them will tell you that 2D platformers are about moving on a 2D plane - it has nothing to do with the graphics!

2D and Flat are different things.Technically by your "definition", would Rayman Origins on 3DS be a 2D platformer?Well, whatever you think, it is still a 2D platformer, as it takes place on a flat plane. Fleshed out models are still 2D if they remain on a two dimensional plane.

If you think a game that uses 3D models and 3D environments that are displayed in a side scrolling sequel from a trilogy of 2D games is a 3D platform game, then that's even better!

Clearly this discussion is about the way the game is played, not the way it's displayed (see what I did there? I'm so smart.)
Let's say for the purposes of this discussion that a 2D platformer is any platform game where control of character movement is granted along only the X and Y axes
I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Putting aside the 2D/3D platformer debate, which I feel has already been effectively settled, Muramasa isn't a platformer. It's an action game with RPG elements.

That's because it can't compete with Donkey Kong Country Returns and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.I got it at the same time as Rayman Origins, so at least it gets the title of being better than the other 2D platformer I got at the same time.

I've only played Return to Dreamland in single player. From what I've seen of the game it doesn't seem like it's meant to be multiplayer really. It just looks needlessly confusing for players and playing as non-Kirbies lacks the gameplay variety of being Kirby. Especially considering Kirby games are purposely easy 9 times out of 10.

From your logic, Kirby´s Epic Yarn shouldn´t be on the list as it´s completely 3D (just like DKCR). However, I get what you saying: Polygonal 2D platformers versus Sprite-based 2D platformers.

This is a tough one, there are some favorites that I've yet to experience like DKCR, NSMB and Warioland Shake It, but of the ones I've played, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Return to Dreamland, A Boy and His Blob and Klonoa (I don't count Rayman Origins, especially since I have it for the 360) I would probably say Kirby's Return to Dreamland has been my favorite so far but Epic Yarn is a close 2nd. Although I found A Boy and His Blob absolutely amazing (the visuals, music, simplicity in execution) I did find it REALLY frustrating at times whereas both Kirby games just took me on a non stop super fun experience. I did enjoy Return to Dreamland more because I actually had never had the pleasure of really playing a traditional Kirby game before and this one did it for me and so much more. I do still intend on getting DKCR when the price drops (Nintendo Selects?)

Probably Donkey Kong Country Returns and Rayman Origins.

Definitly not Rayman Origins, which i just completed btw. I collected all 10 of the skull teath, and finished all of the stages/worlds including The Land of the Living Dead. Although... i do still need to collect 44 electoons, but I'm not bothering because this is hands down thee' most boring 2D platformer i've experienced on the Wii...I basically forced myself to finish it, just to see the very end....Including 2 screens of overly long credits.lol
Yes, the visuals are absolutely gorgeous. The environments are outstanding(Jiggle jungle being my favorite) and the amount of depth and variety is wonderful. It's an amazing feat and ubi should be commended...I haven't seen anything like it in a 2D Sidescroller. Yet I was divided on most of the music...
Some of it was pretty great and perfectly captured the wonderful atmoshphere, But the artsy fartys chipmunk pieces started to get annoying after awhile, especially the LUM JINGLE which happens everytime you get a sleeping LUM. As for the gameplay, it just feels extremely uninspired....And very repetitive. It has a 'hint' of feeling/controlling like a flash game, and I was dissapointed at the lack of challenge....Aside from the treasure chasing, the 6th world(Cloud area) is when the game starts to pose any sort of challenge, while the Land of Living Dead totaly kicks it up a notch, but sadly is over before you know it. I don't feel like it lives up to the hype...It does with the visuals, but it falls a bit short in the fun factor department. I know i'm definitly in the minority on this one, but eh.
So far in order from Favorite to least >
Wario Land Shake it!
Super Paper Mario
Kirby's Epic Yarn
Donkey Kong Country Returns, A Boy & his Blob and Kirby's RTDL are the last 3 2D platformers i've got left to tackle.

@Wave: You shouldn't have waited this long for DKCR, it is a masterpiece!
Anyway, my favorite 2D platformer for the Wii is DKCR, hehe.
