It was underwhelming as I did not enjoy DKCR at all... but most of it was because I didn't like the atmosphere. The new baddies actually look ace, so hopefully the music for this game isn't a borefest like DKCR.
Also playable Dixie is awesome! Would have preferred Diddy & Dixie combo, but this works too.
This does look great, and Returns was one of my favourite games in recent years. I think it's just come at the wrong time. I was expecting Retro to be working on something a bit more ambitious, to be honest. Especially after seeing the new 3D Mario, which looks utterly phoned in.
I was elated at the reveal of Returns in 2010, but not so much this time. Strange.
I've never felt so simultaneously excited and disappointed...I loved the original on Wii, probably my 2nd favorite Wii game honestly...but I was really expecting Retro to be working on Metroid or a new IP or...something different.
I remember in 2011 when Retro said a sequel wasn't in the cards at the time...guess the sales of the first game turned that around.
