Ya well, reviewers complained about bad controls in DKC Tropical Freeze as well, and we all know that game has some of the most precise mechanics ever conceived. Clearly, some reviewers just tend to blame the game when they lack the skill necessary to overcome the challenges presented.

Heck, even going back to Wonderful 101. The shapes drawn out for the Unite Morphs are dependent on the user input. If the shape isn't registering, it's because the user drew it all f***ed up. Yet some reviewers complained because their spiral wasn't registering as a circle- it's like "No duh! You gotta draw the shapes with proper form- you can't just slop down some messy, lopsided scribble and expect the game to register the input correctly". Granted, it does take practice, especially if you go the pro route and use the analogue, but it's still a prime example of reviewers in epic fail mode blaming the game's controls.

Just a reality of the world we live in. Reviewers might have 10, 15 games a week to review, and only allot 15-30 minutes of play time to each game. Sometimes more, but many times reviewers just play the first couple missions or stages, get a feel for the game, then write a review that influences millions. In many cases they don't take the time to properly learn the mechanics and develop skill. Which is unfortunate. It results in reviewers leveling unfounded complaints of bad controls against games with precision controls.

You can destroy the checkpoints. Problem solved.

Although I applaud their reasoning behind not explaining this to the player, it still should have been mentioned by a NPC in the first town (unless I missed that). Otherwise some people would never know, like @WaveBoy mentioned.

It is explained by some NPC not sure who

I was hoping there would be NO checkpoints, i'd rather be punished and start right back at the beginning of the stage when i lose a life. I want to better my skills by correcting every mistake i made, mastering the stage design, enemy layout, the works. Check points make this half-impossible. ;)

break them and get the cash :)

WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS ABOUT MR. HAT

Does anybody know where I can find Mr. Hat? I heard you can find him three times but I've only found him twice (outside his shop on top of the sign and in the airship). Please help!

I can assure you that in no reality is anybody reviewing 10 - 15 games a week.

I haven't gotten Shovel Knight yet but I will get one of them. Are there any huge differences between the Wii U & 3DS version?

The main difference is whether you prefer streetpass or a mix of Miiverse and Dark Souls messages.

Thank you @kkslider5552000. I think I'll get the 3DS version, even though I rarely get streetpass for titles that aren't FEA and SM3DL.

Unless he was playing on PC, on which there is a lock-up sometimes or input lag.

Beat the game, took me 8:15 hrs with most things done (6 missing musical sheets) and it was awesome. Although there could be more boss battles like Thinker Knight, it was awesome.

BTW has anyone accidentally hit and broke a glass checkpoint? Not good lol

Why? I've beat a whole stage without checkpoints and turkeys - it is possible, you only must be little more careful.

Is it fixed now the control issues on the PC version ? (I know there is an update).

I am done waiting. Its going to be ages before it is released in the EU on Nintendo platforms.

Currently attempting to do a bunch of feats at once.

  • Beat the game in under 1 hour at 30 minutes
  • Beat the game without dying
  • Beat the game without falling into any bottomless pits
  • Beat the game without spending any gold
  • Beat the game without any relics
  • Destroy all possible checkpoints

Currently at 1 hour 3 minutes with the final 2 levels remaining.

Really loving the game. Really liking the game pad usage - changing relics on the spots, and the cool inner-game Miiverse inclusion.

I was just thinking how I love those two games. Shovel Knight actually reminded me how much I love Retro City Rampage.. the simple graphics, the complete perfection and fun to go along. I would actually get Retro City Rampage first...

The mapping of the controls is really nice. I mapped the relics button to ZR, dig that.

Has anyone experienced a glitch regarding the Tinker Knight level? You know how it's a two part battle. Every time I defeat the first the battle, Shovel Knight then goes into his victory stance, I cannot move him and Tinker Knight just starts shooting in his giant machine, and just loops continuously. I have to restart the level every time and it's getting very annoying.
