Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (WiiU) - Review
9 March 2014
Excerpt: I love Donkey Kong Country . I always have. Ever since the first game came out on the SNES in 1994, I have been a strong supporter of the series; I even loved Dixie Kong's Double Trouble , despite its toony aesthetic and childish main character. To this day, I still think the claymation-styled graphics look better than pretty much every game in the series that has been released since, and the soundtracks are all some of the best ever.
Review: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Nintendo Wii U)
7 March 2014
Summary: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze brings more of the Retro Studios magic. Solid platforming action, varied levels, and tons of collectibles await those that are up for the challenge, though beware that there’s no Super Guide to save you this time. The game also has a wonderful presentation, showcasing some of the best looking gorilla fur I’ve ever laid eyes upon. Also, two words: Cranky Kong!
Excerpt: Nintendo is monkeying around once again with one of the most beloved video game characters in the history of gaming and has brought Donkey Kong to next-gen consoles. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze delivers intense, action-packed gameplay and delivers the same fun-loving characters that the platforming series is known for.
Excerpt: Hardcore gamers can rejoice now that Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze has been released on the Wii U. Expect your favorite monkey characters (not rolling around in see through balls) to make appearances. Expect the intense difficulty from start to finish. Expect tough and long boss battles.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review (Wii U)
21 February 2014
Excerpt: The Donkey Kong Country games are almost the perfect package for a gamer like me. Their artistic direction is fantastically realised, their soundtracks are some of the greatest pieces ever showcased in a video game and the gameplay is en pointe, balancing perfectly between a feeling of challenge and a feeling of accessibility. Retro Studio’s first game in the franchise, Returns, was a welcome “return” (sorry) for the franchise.
Excerpt: The world’s most beloved simian family returns in another adventure, this time on the Wii U. Nintendo continues Donkey Kong Country’s revival with Tropical Freeze, introducing new enemies and reintroducing old favorites.
