I will not embellish, this game is incredibly difficult. I also found it to be greatly satisfying whenever I finally beat a level or boss I had been stuck on for a while. To be brief, If you don't enjoy this game, you probably don't enjoy video games. Definitely pick this up for a rent, buy it if you really enjoy it.

The only reason I took off one point is because I can see how people would find the end bosses difficult to the point of annoying. I thoroughly enjoy the game and its difficulty.

Horrible Controls

This games has the worst controls of any platformer I've ever played. When you let go of the stick, Kong continues to move a while. When you press jump, it takes about half a second to register. Between the 2 of these, it's almost impossible to do any precision platforming.

But the rest of the controls are similarly bad, with most moves locking you into their animation until they finish.

I thought my wife was upset over nothing when she quit playing it... It's one of her favorite series, and I figured it was just a little too hard for her. Nope. It's just plain awful.

Avoid.
