    The control setup here is undoubtedly unique, and works great for the most part. It's just not intuitive or interesting enough to build an entire adventure game around.
  2. Some levels are ridiculously arduous, such as negotiating tricky leaps in a hurricane.
  3. This game didn't need to be made: It wasn't fun, and I won't play it in my free time.

Unfortunately as the game goes on, the challenge spikes far faster than the player has time to keep up with; The typical old Nintendo "show them how to play through creative gameplay" is missing. After learning the basic mechanics of how to control DK, you're tossed out into the cold, where the difficulty wastes no time in ramping way up, wether you're ready for it or not. Bland, washed-out visual design and dull music only helps take this game down a few more notches. Full Review »
