*Product provided by Nintendo* BUT I still went out and BOUGHT Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze AGAIN for Nintendo Switch! Was it Worth It? Or should I have just played it on Wii U again instead?

I do not have a WiiU so Im eagerly waiting for Nintendo to port all these games to Switch, I loved Bayonetta 2 and I can't wait for more of these relaunches, I mean where is my Super Mario 3D World? I purchased this game first day and it has been AMAZING, Im glad this game exists and the price tag doesn't bother me at all.
Jordan King (4 days ago)
I want to buy this game. I absolutely LOVED Donkey Kong when it was on the GameBoy.

It's Tropical Freeze. It's worth 70
Tinkltinklburger (1 month ago)
The game already has a hard mode where you can play as any character with 1 heart. (Unlocked after getting 100% in either funky or original mode). This is why I highly recommend playing in funky mode as you have more options and if you beat hard mode you dont miss out on any of the challenge.

I bought DK two weeks ago. First DK I've played since DKC3. It's AMAZING. It alongside Octopath Traveler has made me love my Switch again, after 7 months of it collecting dust.

Man I’m trying to decide between donkey Kong, Mario odyssey, octopath, or captain toad like I really like octopath and absolutely love rpgs but I don’t need another one rn I’m trying to finish darkest dungeon. Mario odyssey seems super cool and I definitely want it but I don’t know if I’d like it as much as DK or captain toad cuz I have wanted to play both since there release but I didn’t have a Wii U. Captain toad is cheaper but I’d pay the extra 20 it’s not that big of a deal I just recently got my switch and want a great game to play in hand held mode and especially on the go I don’t have any games besides darkest dungeon that are fun without WiFi but darkest dungeon is pretty stressful like you have to think a lot and pay attention and take it slow I want something I can play for 15 minutes in the car and have lots of fun

Meh i wait till the price drops even if i have to wait for 2 years.

Wood, buddy ol' pal. I'm going to have to disagree with you. The Donkey Kong Country trio for SNES, was the way they were supposed to be. These games made way for a great company that bought Conkers Bad Fur Day, and Banjo-Kazooie. I think that Rare should buy the branding back and make new ones. Donkey Kong Country 2, in my own opinion, has the best score in any of the old games......ever. '0'

Only the soundtrack of this game is better than the entire New Mario Bros U game (this game was super generic).

That’s a lot of bananas lol. Btw, they’re breaking and smushing because you’re opening those bananas on the wrong end.

I’ve never played this game before until I got it for the switch. I could say it is worth paying 65 dollars for including tax in most states(I live in CA). Each level designs are almost perfectly created and I actually feel like I’m playing different levels after beating them one by one. Boss fights are cleverly designed as well and memorable. The background feels alive to me and the colors are vibrant yet not painful for the eyes after hours of gameplay. This game is very challenging. Don’t buy it if you lack the patience. 8.5/10

I rightly skipped the Wii U so have just picked up Tropical Freeze for my Switch. $69AU is ok for me for a quality title. Not sure I’d buy it again if I had bought it before though.

“go ahead take those bananas”
mercy fr (3 months ago)
OK so I seriously want to know what is up with the whole "10 min" deal. I've only started noticing it since I've been watching a lot of nintendo videos and some videos are flooded with "too much filler, clearly trying to hit 10 mins" comments. Whats the big deal about it? Does it have something to do with youtubes standards towards channels and their content?? Or is it literally just a milestone for some youtubers to hit at least 10 mins per vid??
MsAmz (3 months ago)
brought this for my kids on the wii u wont be buying it again they like the game still haven't finished it dont see the point in buying it again :)
cris sanchez (3 months ago)

He kinda looks like the guy who cheated on the original donkey kong
Zé Ortiz (3 months ago)
I´ve just bought it with the console and I chose it over Mario because I´m a huge fan of the Snes trilogy BUT I do think that it´s pricy for a ported game and they should have packed it with Country Returns, or at least a version of the Classic ones (DKQ!) would have been a better way to shove it (ugh) to gamers without complains.
B33FY2015 (3 months ago)
Not at all. Maybe at $40 but brand new game price $60 no sorry I can't justify the price. It's the same with most of the Switch games. Most of them that are ports from years ago from the PS3 and 360 era $60 not a chance. The only two games on the Switch that are worth full price are Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odessey. Other then them two there isn't any other game on the console worth more $40 max not even Mario Kart because again another remastered port.

Amazing game. If you haven't played it before it's definitely worth the $60. Also, pinch the bottom of the banana and it will split right open.
Abelardo (3 months ago)
In case you didn't know, cats don't like bananas.

There is a hard mode called hard mode you only have 1 heart and you can play as any kong

if You open banana from the other side they wont brake.
Lénaïc BRICHLER (4 months ago)
here is a great advice for you : try opening your bananas from the other end. It is actually much easier and more convenient. Changed my life forever.

So if its worth $60, the real question is, is it worth $80? (Canadian price) keeping in mind I did not own a Wii U and have never played it

Pinch the other end of the banana to open it.
I am having so much fun with this game. It looks and plays great
Jaxon Holden (4 months ago)
And let me add, Funky Kong actually DOES provide a harder and more challenging experience... via time trials. Time trials are crack on a cartridge- The immaculate level design was built around it for every single stage. Trying to obtain a gold medal on every stage is a crazy amount of fun and time spent playing, and competing on the Funky time trial leaderboards really tests your skills, as you have to forge your own shortcuts not originally intended by the developers.
Spyros Ballas (4 months ago)
Ofcourse its worth it!! If you havent play it in the past! It needs somes skills and I love it for that! Thats what a gamer can ask...challenging.
Cold World (4 months ago)
You ate too many unripe bananas, that was the problem, not the amount. You should only eat ripe bananas they're much nicer on digestion, and way healthier for you :)
Just Andre (4 months ago)
If you're willing to put some time into the endeavor, 100%ing the game in Funky Mode unlocks Hard Mode, which knocks Funky Kong down to just one hit point instead of five. Having to make it all the way through some of these levels without taking a hit is definitely taxing, but I find it's the perfect balance to how OP Funky is. It makes the experience difficult enough to be satisfying while also allowing you to enjoy just how damn _fun_ Funky is to play as.

Stop your annoying talking for a moment...Did you ever shut up for one minute, in your life, to stop and think that Nintendo is selling for full price so the old sckoolers will actually go out and purchase the Switch? If they sold it for less it would look like a cheap ripoff from the Wii U Now go out and start talking to women
LuminaryEm (4 months ago)
Talks about it needs a hard mode expect the fact it already has a hard mode :p
Ares S. (4 months ago)
i really hope that they release the hd zelda remakes on the switch as well, that would be fucking sweet
Dominic Tringali (4 months ago)
I have it on wiiU and never got around to playing it. I know, shame on me. But I would have gotten it for switch if it was 40€ and not the 53€ I saw it for locally. I just couldn't pull that trigger, specially when I already ordered the Labo Variety pack for 70€ and am not fully recovered from rebuying MarioKart (luckily I got that for 45€ new from someone who didnt want their copy). I could still end up buying it but there is such a back log of games for me to buy already. If I really want to play it I guess I can play my wiiU version. It is still shrink wrapped...

Its definitely worth playing again But is it worth paying full price for it on🤔 Idk, I feel like it should have been $39.99 instead of $59.99
Steven Segalla (4 months ago)
you need riper bananas mate
Jamie York (4 months ago)
Bought it for the Switch; it's beautiful, well polished, still as difficult in areas as it was with the Wii U and I love Funky Kong. Funky is awesome even if he is a easy mode lol
howyoudurrinhunneh (4 months ago)
Definitely worth the $47.99 I paid on pre order. I am pretty much late to the Switch party and am trying to get all Nintendo brand games on a physical copy. Never had a Wii U.
negative7proxy (4 months ago)
I bought this game when it came out on the Wii U and I loved every minute of the game play. I still have the game and the console so I will not be spending $60 for it again when the only thing new is an easy mode for kids. I think Nintendo should focus more on new games for the Switch instead of porting games over from previous consoles.
ItsYaBoyDelz (4 months ago)
To be fair even though funky is easy mode,You can play as him in *hard mode* where you have only one heart.So that can be a challenging experience for those who want to use funky with a higher difficulty. I’m glad because he’s very flexible in terms of replaybability, he can be good for speedruns or just playing the game on a hard difficulty.
Pokémanz Mastur (4 months ago)
I already got my physical copy of Human Fall Flat months ago.
Robert D'Amico (4 months ago)
I mean, look, no disrespect to this game because it is of the highest quality when it comes to platformers... but the $60 is not justified. It’s a port with a new mode and shorter load times. Games like the Crash Trilogy and Shadow of the Colossus are old games but were rebuilt from the ground up, and they were only $40. This is merely of case of Nintendo just being Nintendo.
Ghost in The shell (4 months ago)
this video proves that wood is a blind Nintendo fanboy. No old port should be full price.

The game still has the same feel as the Wii U. But my favorite new feature add on is the Funky Kong character.

Ratchet and SOTC were $40. Still, your point is there.

I will buy it, because I didn't have a Wii U and I love challenging games who really want you to crash your console because you're always failing but when you finish it you're kinda proud of yourself.

I've never played a Donkey Kong game since the Gameboy pocket days. I think I'll end up getting this game tomorrow.
Caladas (4 months ago)
If it has got the omni-Y button of the originals, then yes. As a original DK fanatic, I really struggled with the WiiU version since you had to use the ZR for either rolling, or grabbing. The game itself is absolutely beautiful, but when the controlls feels wonky, the experience suffers. Another slight issue I had with the WiiU version (dunno if it's still there on the Switch, but I reckon it is) is the slightly wierd timing of the jumps that occurs in this game. Especially on mine kart levels where timing is key, I feel a slight "offness" where I don't land where I expect to land, and that results in many unnecessary deaths, missed bananas/coins/hearts/puzzle pieces, and baddies that doesn't get properly bonked. If those issues are fixed this game would be a sublime platformer (it already is good, but not as good as it could be) and almost at the level of the original 3 (yes the 3'rd is a flipping golden too!).

If you open your bananas the opposite way by pinching the bottom... You will never squish or break your bananas! ;) Thanks for the review!

T- Bird (4 months ago)
DK port also has way better graphics, has faster loading times, little extra things added on to the game, good for people who have a small switch collection, people who couldn't finish the game, and the game is really good at bringing people together (point of the switch) and on top of that you can get a level in quickly on lunch breaks, and last but not least it is a really good portable game! #I luv your channel keep going and nice review!
Koopa Kev (4 months ago)
As a Wii U owner, I can say I’m not mad about the price, because I simply don’t have to buy DKCTF again. However I will say I’m kinda bummed that the game doesn’t have enough going for it for me to find an excuse to buy it again, cuz I’d love to experience it again on switch... just not for $60
