Summary: I got it for christmas. Christmas has now replaced Halloween as my favorite holiday. THIS GAME IS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! It is so fun, and the controls are very good, for either with or without the nunchuk, and it is two player also! And the graphics: I really couldn't tell I was playing a wii. I mean I don't even have a component or S-AV cable, just the normal A/V, and they look awesome!!! The story is really cool, and it was pretty chalenging for me, but not too hard.
Excerpt: Having never played the original, I can't compare how this updated version stands against it, but in it's own right this is an excellent game. I'm a fan of platform games, especially when they are done well, and this has to be one of the best. If you like New Super Mario Brothers Wii, you'll love this.
Summary: In 1994, the original Donkey Kong country was released for the SNES. Now, seventeen years later, DK is back in Donkey Kong Country Returns. The story takes place in DK island and starts when a mysterious Tiki Tak Tribe steals Diddy and Donkey Kong's banana hoard. Determined to take back their delicious treasure, the duo set out to catch the Tiki Tak Tribe. You go through a series of themed worlds, some including a beach world, a cave world, and of course a jungle world.
Summary: Donkey Kong Country Returns takes hardcore gamers back to the golden age of the DK Country games when they first played the originals. This game is my personal favorite Donkey Kong game ever made, and it is also one of the best Wii games created so far in my opinion. From swinging on vines to blasting through barrels to riding in minecarts and to racing on a rocket, this game will not disappoint any DK fan.
