I enjoyed it, and I've never even played the one that was on the Wii.


DKCR was much better. Still not great like the Rare games, but good.

DKC3 is a perfectly good game. I haven't played Tropical Freeze, but I can honestly say that Returns is boring and charmless. The waggle controls made it annoying and the lack of tag-teaming is bulls***.

It's the only DK platformer that I actually like.

I've tried every previous iteration and quit after a few levels.

I got Tropical Freeze over a year ago and I still love playing it.

Tropical Freeze is amazing; better than the original Returns, best platformer on the Wii U (Rayman Legends is great, but I'll give TF the nod by a hair) and holds its own with the originals (though it's clearly different). Citing sales numbers for any Wii U game is gonna look ugly, simply because no one bought the Wii U in the first place.

it was an awesome game and people liked it for the gameplay, not just the characters

Also i think it sold very good numbers compared to most wii u games. I bet Kirby, Yoshi, Animal Crossing, Mario Tennis, Mario Party etc franchises didn't die from the wii u so why single out donkey kong? the next mario game has new donk city as the central location so Donkey Kong still seems pretty important to nintendo

There's no way you can honestly look at DKTF and think, "yep, this s*** art direction, s*** character sounds, and inferior, gimmicky gameplay is equal to DKC2, yessir." I simply refuse to believe it.Lil_Bit83 posted...

True, but DKCR multiplayer is okay one time through, it is no classic though. There's something about the weird controls in DKCTF that really screw it up, so much even multi can't save it.

You mean in the same way that people would only like Rayman Tropical Freeze because it was Rayman, or Mario Tropical Freeze because it was Mario, or Sonic Tropical Freeze, Crash Tropical Freeze... What is even your point? Of course people liked Tropical Freeze because it was a DK game, what else it is?

It's a DK game in the same vein as every 2D DK game, nothing more, nothing less.
