Well reviews indicate that it has turned out very well. But I'm not really a fan of Retro, I prefer Nintendo keeping development of their big series in Japan. Retro is really good, but they still don't have that magic. I bought and beat DKCR some weeks ago - it's not up there with Mario games. In NSMBWii, when you look at the 'super skills' videos, you realize that all the levels were designed with the perfect run in mind. Every tiny gap, jump, enemy were placed for you to blast through the levels, once you've got the flow. DKCR doesn't quite have that.
But I disgress. I clicked "Netrual".
You clearly has not yet played speedrun mode.
Above: still the best game of the year.
