Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

  • Summary: I remember where I was when Donkey Kong Country Returns was announced for the Wii. I was in the E3 press room during the Nintendo conference, and I shouted a few obscenities at the screen after the surprise trailer, garnering everything from thumbs up from fellow fans to confused glares.

  • Excerpt: Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is still the same great game as before, with some minor hangups that aren’t pervasive enough to really hurt the experience. There isn’t a ton of new content, so I don’t know if casual fans have much of a reason to pick this up if they’ve already had their fill of the Wii version, but Donkey Kong fans and newcomers will find plenty to like about this release, especially if they have 3DS XLs.
  • Pros: A great console game with the novelty of portability, awesome 3D effects
  • Cons: Slight tech issues, rolling feels off, standard 3DS screen a little too small

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

  • Summary: One of the best platformers in years gets pint-sized on the 3DS
  • Pros: Surprisingly intense platforming action; loads of personality and clever level designs; great graphics and catchy music; near perfect mix of modern design and nostalgia; plenty of secrets and replay value.
  • Cons: Not too much here that wasn't in the 2010 Wii version; younger gamers may have trouble managing the challenge level; some obstacles were designed with a big TV in mind and can be hard to make out on the 3DS screen; the game is practically unplayable in 3D mode.

  • Summary: Platforming goodness comes to the 3DS in the form Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. It was an unrelenting but highly enjoyable game on the Wii, hopefully the move to a smaller screen hasn't damaged it.

  • Conclusion: If you are fine with crazy difficulty in your platformers then it’s a really rewarding game to play and so beautiful it puts the NSMB series to shame.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (3DS) Review

Vooks
1 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Just like I opened my review of Donkey Kong Country Returns with scepticism as to whether or not Retro Studios could do a decent job bringing my favourite platforming franchise back to the forefront of cultural relevance, I was also incredibly sceptical of just how interesting or useful the 3D enhanced port of Donkey Kong Country Returns would be.
