An der Suisse Toy war's leider nur mit Nunchuck/Wiimote spielbar - zwar gewohnt gut, aber dieses verdammte Geschüttel :notsureifgusta:... mit dem Wii U GamePad wird's aber sowieso spielbar sein, das war aber aus unerfindlichen Gründen an der Messe deaktiviert :genius:. Auf Pro Controller hoffe ich auch.

Just when the Kong crew sits down for a nice banana feast, a fleet of Viking animals sails up to their island and freezes everything in sight. After getting evicted, Donkey Kong and friends journey through a series of themed islands to rebuke the invaders and return to their homeland in an adventure chock full of inventive and challenging levels. On the surface, worlds divided into categories like jungle, beach, and ice seem like they could drift into well-worn territory, but the variety is amazing. You platform across giant leaves (kept aloft by gusts of wind from Alpine Horns timed to the background


Polygon: 8.5

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze could've easily been a me-too sequel. Its much-loved predecessor reinvigorated the series and did so much with the 2D framework that Retro could've released a bunch of new stages and called it a day. But Tropical Freeze adds intelligently to the formula, with new characters that imbue subtle nuance to the gameplay, a better-tuned challenge level and an increased emphasis on replay value. These features make Tropical Freeze consistently worth coming back to, and mark it as a high point for the series.


IGN: 9.0
