Why compare it to 3D World, one is a 3D platformer while the other one is 2D.
If anything you should compare it to Rayman Legends. DK is way better imo, I 100%ed Rayman in a week and I'm no where near 100% in DKC.
I think alot moaned about it being to hard. It is hard and that's what makes it great, Rayman was way to easy. Alot of other complained I heard is it being not Metroid (I agree but does'nt make the game any less good). Also the fact that WiiU did'nt need a other platformer (news flash, your job is to review a game as it is, not review a console situation wether that game is needed for that said console or not).
Also, this is something that happens only to Nintendo... Some ppl tend to be reviewing Nintendo instead of their games. They feel that Nintendo uses always the same old IP so they are critisizing DK for being more of the same. F*ck the fact that their's only been 2DK games in the last 10years, DK existed in the 90s, therefore they are milking it and it's same old... Meanwhile we get 7AC games in 7years and not once I saw ppl say ''same old, nothing groundbreaking'' And that's a other thing, why does only Nintendo games need groundbreaking stuffs. Only Nintendo games get critisized for being what they are. A Mario game can't be like Mario games, a Zelda game can't be like Zelda games and DK can't be like DK... Not once I saw someone say ''Legends is great, but it's alot like Origins, it's 2D and you jump in punch exactly like Origins, same old''. Their has been as many DKC games as Rayman games in the last 10years, yet only one is being blasted because it plays like it's predecessor, yet one of them adds 2characters that actualy changes gameplay abot (not ground breaking but still, why uterly destroy a formula?)
