i totally disagree. i played it at bestbuy awhile back and you had to shake the wii mote do a simple roll if im not mistaken. platformers imo need reg controls, not motion


Yeah, this was the dumbest shit I've seen Nintendo do in a long time(and that's a pretty full list). I played it until about midway through, and the action just got to intense to use the waggle motion for hand slaps and rolls. So instead of throwing my Wiimote through the tv, I just stopped playing it.

I understand that some kids would love to play that way, as my son is one of them, but just not giving the option for standard button presses is just plain stupid. I didn't even find out about the Wii version hack untill I heard about the 3DS version, otherwise I would have played it that way. Choices are key Nintendo, don't loose sight of that. Forced motion controls ruined an otherwise AAA title.

Yeah, that eggsaver option is garbage. I've had some of those take almost 2 weeks. They give it to one carrier, then they hand it off to another, ect. I'm like, isn't this double/triple the work and cost? I'd imagine everyone who touches gets paid.

It's the "cheap" option, so I'm not normally in a huge rush to get games this way, but damn........They can mail most of the games I order by first class postal mail for pennies on the dollar and that takes 2-3 days anywhere in the country. I can't see their current methods being any cheaper, but it is waaaaaaayyyyyyyy slooooooooower for sure.

For anyone who wants a game in a timely manner from Newegg, NEVER choose the eggsaver option, it SUCKS!


I agree. I stopped playing the original because of the motion control. At least someone patched it (still havent tried it yet to be honest but its only because my backlog is to large to revisit).

don't buy this if you only played the original. i thought it would be similar but the only similarity was the name and graphics. the gameplay was a horrible mess.

nice, thanks OP...gonna have to get in on this. Ive never ordered from newegg personally but it looks like no tax as well. How long does their shipping usually take on preorders? Do they arrive on release day? I notice this comes out on a friday.


Their shipping is freaking slow, if you order the free version. Generally speaking I have no problem with this for computer parts, etc, but I stopped ordering video games from them because it takes anywhere from 5-7 days afterward for me to get it. Not worth the savings for me...I'm too impatient. That largely depends on where you live in relation to them, though (they're in CA).

Cheers OP for the deal! Looking forward to playing this with proper controls this time, no more shaking just to do rolls/attacks :)

Lol you must be doing it wrong...

Are you selecting the 3 day ups? Cause its also free beside the newegg super saver option, lol.

Edit: they also have a warehouse in NJ.

Thanks OP! I canceled my Amazon pre-order. I tried to get Amazon to price match but they wouldn't. Has anyone had luck doing this? I was successful in the past.


Well I just posted a discussion thread on Amazon's page talking about this Newegg deal, so hopefully Amazon will make their own similar deal.

Honestly when shipping is free I am perfectly fine if it takes awhile. Because it's free....

But with both Newegg and Amazon free shipping has always been fast shipping. Just recently picked up ZE: VLR from the lightning deal @Amazon with free shipping and it shipped yesterday. That was pretty damn fast.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I think that Kmart pre-order deal is better. I believe you get $15 credit.

great game. The only reason I would buy the 3ds version is for the exclusive levels. The wii version has an alternate control scheme so you don't have to use motion controls to roll. You still have to use motion controls for some things like punching bosses.

Too bad you couldn't play as Diddy.

Shame you can't use Shoprunner on this; I'm 2 purchases short of getting the trial extended a year and would've been nice if this counted. Still ordered though because it's a solid price.

Damn really? I should have ordered last weekend when games were 10% off! Is there a list of games with credit?

If its a port of a fabulous game with extra content, tweaked difficulty, and extra levels, whats exactly is the problem?

Even this port will be better than half the trash platformers released in the past couple years if the original game for the Wii is anything to go by.

People dont have to be drones because they like the games they like.

LOL. Seriously. I can't believe people are thinking about buying a game that has been released on more than one console!

Awesome deal but I've already played it unfortunately. Well, not unfortunately since the game is awesome.

It's a nice alternative if you shop their regularly but I'd rather save money from the initial purchase.

It's no different then all the HD ports from the ps2 days on the ps3 and xbox, the psp ports and the ps vita ports of ps3 games. And more ports on the way with Final Fantasy X & X-2, and Kingdom Hearts HD on the way. Their is clearly a market of people who want to experience the game again or who missed out on playing it initially
