The game is truly fun and challenging, specially if played cooperatively with another player. A lot of trial and error and patience are required to beat the game. The new character Cranky Kong has a pogo stick move that can make platforming a little easier. I think children may find it too challenging so please keep that in mind before renting. Tropical Freeze is a better game than Donkey Kong Country Returns in my opinion and it's a worthy successor to the SNES classic.
When we received this game, it was so blurry that we couldn't play. I'm not sure if it was a problem with the one copy we rented, or if that's true for other copies, but my brother and I were disappointed in the visuals quality.
I could be alone on this, but this game seems like Super Mario except instead of Mario it's an ape. Of course the graphics are better than the previous DK games but like I said, it's like Super Mario. I do like that you can use Diddy, Dixie, and finally Cranky Kong, and that they have their own special ability. I will give it this, this game is HARD at times, if you like the challenge you'll like this game, but the replay value of this game isn't very high in my opinion.
