One of the Best 2D Games Yet!

DK is an amazing game, its levels really shine in there design and overall fair difficulty. playing co-op is simply brilliant. But the rocket levels are a bit of pain.

Yay, well done DKC:TF! Still my fave Wii U game.

P.S. For all those people saying "it's not what Nintendo fans wanted"... the best selling MP game sold a little under 3m in its entire lifetime, and I suspect probably had a similar first year to this game. Don't make the mistake of assuming that an extremely vocal group on the Internet represents the majority.

A game this amazing deserves to be a multi-million seller.
The Wii U deserves better sales in general.
