I am rewriting this question from scratch because I feel that I need to be clear and concise.
When I play Donkey Kong Country Returns on my Wii, I experience controller lag during the gameplay. There seems to be a very consistent .1 to .2 second delay between when I press the 'jump' button on the controller and when Donkey Kong jumps.
I don't know what is causing this. The controls seem to be much more responsive in navigating the on-screen menus, but perhaps it's just perception.
I really wanted to enjoy this game, but every time I've tried to play, I get so irritated with the controls. I just listed it for sale on eBay. However, I imagine that perhaps Nintendo thought that a small amount of lag wouldn't be noticed by most players.
Can anyone tell me if this controller lag is just part of the game, or is there something wrong with the way my Wii is set up?
