    Yes yes... I bought this today.  It's the Daily Deal at GamersGate today, and for $5.10, I couldn't pass it up.

    My eldest looooves watching me play Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo Tooie (both for Nintendo 64,) and this reminds me a LOT of those games!  She doesn't have the motor skills to play, herself, but I'm just sure that she's going to really enjoy playing this "with" me Sunny

    Well I'm a bit disappointed with this.  For one thing, an XBox USB controller is recommended, and movement is REALLY touchy with the keyboard D\\'oh!  HARD!

    The main reason I'm disappointed with it, however, is that I was hoping it would be like Donkey Kong 64 as far as being immersive with lots of story and goal-oriented per area -- not just an overall goal of saving Minnie!  This is more of a collect-the-stars, jump-and-avoid, run-around-like-crazy type of game.  It's more like Mario 64, which I never got far in, for the reasons mentioned above.  Bummer!

    Oh well... at least now I have a second reason to get a PC controller (the other being Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, which I've realllllly been coveting Laugh  )
