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.
