Awesome. If anyone in mildly interested in this game, get it at this price.

It's a bit hard (aggravating), but a very excellent game overall.

Sweet! Finally bit on this. Looking forward to it.

I'm kind of surprised they dropped to $35 after Newegg sold out (unless they're PMing another store?).

Thanks, OP.

I love that it can be difficult but still feel extremely fair. Every time you die, it is definitely your fault (although there is some trial and error gameplay to be found).

There are some absolutely brilliant sequences in this game.

Fantastic work by Retro.

I don't know anything about the Capcom game, but I can attest that DK Country is an excellent game. Looks great, has solid control, is challenging yet not artificially difficult, and has both a nostalgic and fresh feel to it. Can't go wrong for $35.

Me too, although having paid $10 for the gift card, it's really more like $25.

This is the best 2d platformer I have played in years and I like the genre.

I implore people to buy this game new when they see deals like this so more of these games come from Retro.

Also no shipping on amazon, no tax for most, and Newegg is out of stock...If you do get taxed on Amazon but not Newegg it's still kind of a moot point unless they get it back in stock at $35.

Anyone who is a fan of 2D Platformers and doesn't buy this at $35 is a fool (well, assuming they have a Wii).

I've put many hours into this game, and it's one of the best platformers I've played in years too. Nostalgic, but with enough fresh mechanics to make it feel new again, with tight controls great graphics pitch-perfect music and a pretty solid difficulty curve. I paid $40 and I feel like I got way more than I paid for.

Here's hoping for a sequel.

Worth noting that it's also trading in for over $30 right now. If you can get it and beat it in a reasonably short time you could potentially turn this around for only a few $ net.

My birthday is week from today, there's no way of knowing how long this sale will last, right?
At least someone tell me how long Amazon's PM sales last. A day, few days, a week?

I bought this game instead of Tatsunoko vs Capcom...

I think this game for this price is a better simple because most Nintendo games don't get too much deals. They always stay at MRSP.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom can wait until Wednesday. That's when my Biolife Donor Card is going to have money.

For for info about that, check this thread!

Time is not the problem... the problem is that this deal will be Out of Stock pretty soon.

Great game, I bought it at launch and never regret it for a second. A great 2D platformer and worthy of being a DKC game that's for sure.

Me too. This would be $33 in a B2G1 deal, but it's hard to tell if this will drop quick like Metroid or sit at $50 forever and just go OOP.
