The bad reviews are wrong

If you don't like DKCR, you don't like platform gaming and you're not really a gamer. Period.

Don't knock the game for your lack of talent

1 out of 1 gamers (100%) found this review helpful

I mean seriously. Retro did an amazing job on this game. Its a wonderful love letter to all of games in the 80's and 90's... Back before games held your hand. Back when games had you actually playing a game instead of having you watch the computer play the game for you and asked you to press 'A' occasionally here and there (QTE garbage in AAA games)

So 'gamers' today find this too difficult because the game actually lets you live and die on your own skill as a gamer... Because Donkey Kong isn't holding your hand at all you give this game a terrible score.

Can anyone name a single Donkey Kong game that wasn't difficult? I can't and I have been playing Donkey Kong games since the early 80's, they all were difficult and intentionally difficult at that.... so I see a reviewer knocking a Donkey Kong game for being too hard, I just have to chuckle, because THATS THE POINT OF A DONKEY KONG GAME to challenge you, to make you throw the controller in frustration.

Chin up all you terrible gamers out there, there is other Wii games right up your alley with your name on it.

Kirby's Epic Yarn and Super Cooking Mama deluxe edition... go on with your bad selves. These games were designed for people who are not so good at games.

This game was so much fun! There were times that you got so frustrated you wanted to throw something, but it just made you want to keep trying. It's very much like Super Mario Bros Wii. and one of my new favorites.
