The most criminally underrated Wii U Game: DKC Tropical Freeze

#1HighOnPhazonPosted 8/4/2014 5:47:43 PM
Why does nobody talk about this game? Why do people seem to forget that this is probably the best Platformer developed for any current generation gaming platform?

I feel bad for Retro. They are one of my favorite gaming development studios and nobody cared about Tropical Freeze.

1. Creative Level Design that stays fresh through 6 huge worlds
2. Excellent art design and use of color
3. Music. MUSIC! So good.
4. Epic Bosses
5. Secret exits, collectibles
6. Challenge. A good platformer has a healthy dose of challenge and this game doesn't disappoint.
7. Graphics. Might go along with art style but I feel it's somewhat separate. Game looks damn good for a console game (I'm mainly a PC gamer but this game is beautiful). Love the animations of the characters, bosses etc. Everything is detailed.
8. Controls. Great, snappy controls and you have mulitple options! I really like that you can switch from Control Stick to DPad, use the Pro Controller, change the Roll/grab from RL etc.

Mario came out and nobody gave a crap about this game. If you own this system, buy Tropical Freeze.

Normally I would agree with you. I didn't even particularly care for the DKC games on SNES, but this one is the whole package and it's easily the best Platformer on the Wii U.

It's a great game, but it's another 2d platformer on the wiiu.

i actually like DKC:TF a lot more, but W101 is indeed more underrated in my opinion.
