A worthy remake, though hard
19 December 2010
Summary: Until recently, those of us who grew up on (and loved) 2D side-scrolling platform games had been suffering a 15-year starvation. The rather awesome reincarnation of New Super Mario Brothers Wii put an end to that in 2009, while this year we get a restoring of the other most beloved game of the genre, Donkey Kong Country (yes, more beloved, and better, than any Sonic).
Summary: When my wife and I saw previews for this game, we both decided together immediately that we would get it. We both had hyper levels of nostalgia for the classic trilogy of Donkey Kong Country games on the SNES, and when I saw that Retro studios, the geniuses behind the best Metroid games in the franchise ( I'm referring to the amazing Metroid Prime Trilogy, for those sadly unacquainted ), I knew this sequel/reboot would be of the highest quality. We were not disappointed.
Summary: Three words: GET THIS GAME! This is hands down the best game that I own for the Wii system. Loads of fun for both single and multiplayer. This game is very similar to the older ones, but jam packed with new features. The graphics are not too bad either. Get this game, you will not be disappointed.
Summary: It's hard, but that's what makes it so awesome... The multi player is one of the best co-op i've ever played, and that makes it all the more fun... If you have a Wii and you're here to read about the game, buy it already...
Summary: Donkey Kong Country Returns is a welcome return for many fans of this classic title back in the SNES days. It has remained one of the most played after games even till now. This new game of the classic title has gone up a notch in every department, from graphics, animation, levels, gameplay etc. If you like old school platforming games with varieties, this will be it as the game offers enough challenge yet providing an enjoyable experience.
Pros: It's a good game I played at a friends house like it .
Cons: Let you know when it get shipped it's still on the pre Order Back order list should of shipped when it came in but did not gess that is what I get for ording to meny pre orers at the same time .well gess my wife and kids will get it after x-mass
Summary: If you want to see my Video Review please go to [...] When Donkey Kong Country was released in 1994 it took the world by storm. The core formula back then was fast paced gameplay, wacky level design, precise controls and an absurd tough difficulty. Since Rare, the Developer of the Original, had been assimilated by Microsoft there was a need for somebody to step it up and bring back the good old donkey Love.
