    Now there is a qualiy bit of quality control.

    But surely if it's to dark on a normal TV, it will be even worse on a LCD?

    Nope. It seems the developers only used HD screens during the games development, but didn't think to check it on a normal TV

    It did not occur to them that there would be a problem with standard televisions, which are what most people use to play console games.

    Other 360 games, like Microsoft's Perfect Dark Zero, offer an option to select what type of TV is being used.

    I played Kong on an HD TV and I found it incredibly dark and had no idea where I was going.

    To tell you the truth, i thought i was playing a 2 year old PC game anyway. Graphically, at least what you could see, the graphics are very underwhelming.

    I have only played the demo but the game doesn't really seem special. Maybe worth a purchase when its cheap
