After playin' this game for a week I see the brilliance shine through. It reminds me a lot of the old Donkey Kong Country games of the SNES, and a little of Donkey Kong '94 (not 64, that **** was garbs). Those were the only good DK games. Too bad this game doesn't get the recognition is deserves. I know I wouldn't have bought it if there wasn't that sale at EB. This game reminds me why I loved the DKC series so much. I really hope Nintendo puts some effort into making a new DK worthy of its name for the Wii or DS. The controls of the game are innovative and the gameplay is addictive. Great DK style characters and levels, with great music. It's just an all around fun game. Anyone else have this gem?
