This game is awesome.
Nice and simple oldschool style, but not outdated at all. Fantastic visuals, excellent gameplay. LOADS of replayability (if you hunt trophies or have OCD) The game is long enough to keep you busy for a while just on it's own too. It's not "super" difficult unless you go bonkers replaying every level for unlockables, but it's not "kidishly easy" either, although, kids could definitely play it as many did Mario, Mega Man and Donkey Kong back in the day.
Playing this almost reminds me of when I first played Crash Bandicoot (yes I know they're not entirely alike, 2D, 3D, etc) in the sense of, you could breeze through the game carelessly with relative ease, but getting all of the secrets and collecting everything still takes some skill and patience. (Little Big Planet too!)
I love this game and highly recommend it for everyone!! Excellent!!
PS: This is a great alternative to the current trend of flip flopping between 1st person shooters and 3rd person action games that this generation is famous for!
This game was a bit too repetitive in it's gameplay and idea for me. There are no real 'enemies' but rather obstacles that you have to get through in order to beat the level. In the original it was more like Sonic, Earthworm Jim and Mario. I wish this was more like that.
