Donkey Kong Country Returns

  • Excerpt: Some gaming characters will stay with you forever and the iconic Donkey Kong is one of those characters. Donkey Kong and I have had a great relationship over the past 25 or so years. I remember playing Donkey Kong of the original LCD handhelds, then on the Super NES, Nintendo 64 and GameCube. Great times for all!

  • Summary: In 1994, the original Donkey Kong Country single-handedly saved the Super Nintendo from losing to the Genesis. The gorgeous platformer had everyone talking, with its solid gameplay, classic characters, and, most importantly, absolutely revolutionary visuals. After two sequels in as many years, the Donkey Kong Country series came to an abrupt halt.

  • Excerpt: I’ve had my beady little eyes on Donkey Kong Country Returns since it was released late last year, so when I was graciously given the opportunity to review this game I was all over it like a monkey on a banana. Donkey Kong Country Returns was developed by Retro Studios and they have held true to the series which began back in 1994 by Rare on the good ol’ Super Nintendo.

  • Excerpt: At E3 2010 the return to Donkey Kong country was announced, and a mere few months later we finally have the new release of Donkey Kong Country Returns in our grubby little primate paws, and let me tell you – Nintendo really knows how to bring a series back. First with the resurgence of Kirby, and now out buddies DK and Diddy Kong make a return to track down their yet again stolen stash of bananas.

  • Excerpt: 16 years after the original Donkey Kong Country (created by Rare) surprised the SNES crowd with amazing gameplay and, at the time, cutting edge graphics, Nintendo thought it would be a good idea to see the Kong back in action again. They called on Retro Studios, the folks that built the Metroid Primes games, to give Donkey Kong Country the New Super Mario Bros treatment.

  • Excerpt: It was just about a year ago that Nintendo’s New Super Mario Bros. Wii numbed nostalgia-loving gamers’ thumbs with its modern day take on old school platforming. Like that title, Donkey Kong Country Returns respects its SNES-era roots while making its gameplay and presentation relevant for the current generation.

Game Over Online
3 December 2010
  • Excerpt: After a 14 year absence outside of re-releases, the 2D side-scrolling Donkey Kong Country series is back, and with a nice polygonal makeover as well. DK’s banana horde has been swiped once again, but this time, an evil tiki tribe (is there any other kind in gaming?) is behind it, instead of King/Kaptain K.Rool.
