    Why doesn't this look as fun as the previous titles?

    Looks far more fun than dk64 or that weird jumping one on the gba. It seems to me that the main thing about the snes dkc was the gfx superiority, which it has never been able to do in later versions. It was after all, just a standard platform game.
    If this had unexpectedly high gfx quality, perhaps it would look as good as dkc did on the snes.

    I thought Jungle Climber & King of Swing were excellent games, loved those titles a lot.

    Well, you can't be sure now, but they might announce more features later on.

    But if it's the classic formula of gameplay, then yeah you will probably think it's the same.

    I dunno, it just doesn't feel much like Donkey Kong Country.

    Looks great and since I believe in RETRO being able to capture the exact essence of what DKC made DKC and also introducing new things that still feel right in the context of the Country-games I`m sure this game is going to be amazing.

    I love this for several reasons and I also love Nintendo for doing these 2D-games. I always thought that it was a good thing, that the DS was underpowered, since we still got some 2D-games but I really don`t mind playing them on my TV as well... Good times [​IMG]

    Also I never agreed with Miyamoto on what he thinks about the DKC-series.

    Awesome this is this is one of the best games of all time. I makes me feel nostalgic of my old SNES. I have to find all those consoles and collect them. This is a must have for my WIi.

    I get what Chaz is saying. something about it feels... off. I does not feel the same as the original titles. And I loved the DKC series.

    Well... I guess I can't judge until it is released, huh?

    I get what you guys are saying about the game not seeming as "Donkey King Country-ish". The game, while staying true to its roots, just doesn't seem as aesthetically-familiar as the SNES outings they're based on. The style, apart from familiar faces like the 'Kongs and Rambi, looks rather generic. Once again, I can't exactly put my finger on it, but the difference is obvious, in a subtle sort of way. /Paradox

    Another factor that always irks me about watching game previews online is that they're almost always presented in 30 frames per second. Seasoned gamers will agree that games running at 60 frames per second just seem smoother in terms of motion and flow. Considering that the SNES Country games ran at 60 fps for NTSC and 50 fps PAL, both of which are rates much faster than the rate presented in the video, the aesthetic "smooth" factor seems to has disappeared while viewing this preview, in my opinion.

    Of course, this doesn't mean that Donkey Kong Country Returns is doomed to be 30 fps. It could very well run at a silky-smooth 60 fps. It's just that the standard for internet video is 30 fps, so the game doesn't look as smooth-moving as it would on a console. Get my drift? Try watching videos on Youtube from other 60 fps games, too. The difference is quite astounding, actually, especially in racing games.

    Why would you care?
    Im thinking that when you jump you cant turn or stop the speed how fast your jumping, or the person playing is holding the same directional buttom.
