Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze review

 

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a hard game to justify in the Wii U's library, surrounded as it is by excellent platformers like Super Mario 3D World, Rayman Legends, New Super Mario Bros U, and Bit.Trip Runner 2 (to name a few). It needs to be...

Delightful on the eyes and full of animated character ; Difficult platforming that's supremely gratifying to master ; David Wise soundtrack is delicious

Ill-advised checkpoint placement makes the game frustrating rather than difficult ; Annoying bosses

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze distinguishes itself from an already crowded stable of Wii U platformers, but not always in a welcoming way.

Every Area in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Tells a Story

 

More importantly, every level in Tropical Freeze offers something new and creative.

How David Wise Saved Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

 

The beauty of a David Wise composition is itsinnate ability to seamlessly stitch together your senses. What you see and feel is eerily embodied in his melodies.

Gamers take control of Nintendo's simian superstar and his friends as they try to fend off a group of Viking-like animal invaders in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. These Snowmad warriors have sent a deep chill through DK Island, turning the once tr

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze review

 

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is proof positive that 2D platformers still have a place in modern gaming. It is, quite simply, a superb platform title and a much needed one for the Wii U.

One of the most rewarding 2D platform games in many years, graphics are sumptuous, cunningly difficult, retains that retro Nintendo feel

Co-op multiplayer is great for a giggle but not as focused as single-player, difficulty could alienate some less tolerant gamers

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

 

Is a hairy ape the champion Wii U is looking for?

Lovely CGI cartoon graphics ; Lengthy and challenging ; Slick, well-paced and consistently entertaining

Rarely feels inventive or inspired ; Camera in co-op is awful ; Bosses may cause game rage

Donkey Kong’s latest adventure is a slick, good-looking and demanding 2D platformer that works like a trooper to keep you entertained. It’s not that imaginative, inventive, original or quirky, though, and after New Super Mario Bros U or the superb...
