    See that hole in your wall?
    Ditto.

    I hated King of Swing and I hate the new one too.

    What are you talking about?? I think this game is brilliant! And I think the new L + R gameplay feels really refreshing.

    Are you one of those people who always want things to stay the same????

    The L+R buttons on my DS don't work anymore. I'm going to need to a new one before I play this.

    I liked the old ones but that doesn't mean I want that kind of gameplay.

    But this DK game sucks in controls and overall design. It's plain horrible. I want to jump but he makes that annoying jump like he wants to swing. It feels like you're masterchief again defying gravity.

    Yeah thats because he DOES want to swing [​IMG]

    As for L+R buttons, you can use the d-pad as well.

    Meh, Im with Ph1l0z0ph3r and Samutz. I prefer the Donkey Kong Country style gameplay. This new one doesn't really feel right at all...

    while I would prefer a DKC like game, I think king of swing is pretty cool

    I find it better than KoS. Might be because I can see more of the level with two screens. Also, it might be because I played almost every GBA games on emulator, so it might ruin the game sometimes. [​IMG]


    EDIT: Why are people asking how the games are if they can just download it and try it for themselves?

    I love this game but some parts of it are just flat-out ridiculous...

    For instance, that dual screened mirror part annoyed the hell out of me, as well as that foggy level that had you peeking at the bottom screens every few seconds for... a map? [​IMG]

    I think they took it too far with the innovation at certain parts, I was just fine with the flow of the game and originality of the "swinging" gameplay at first, but those little extra parts thrown into level increase the difficulty to a frustrating level... [​IMG]

    Also, I love how it stays true to it's DKC formula... If DK takes one hit, start over (although, this too, is frustrating at times [​IMG] )

    Lastly, anyone who collects every item from every stage is just amazing in my book. It seems close to impossible for me... [​IMG]

    DKC3 really was good, its the only (along with pkmn slvr) gbc game i play
    the game is really weird and i havent even gotten past the first level yet
    the innovation is ok but its not for me

    btw, what are the chances of a new DKC game coming out?
