Too difficult for very young children
6 February 2011
Conclusion: Firstly i wouldn't reccommend this for very young children as it is a very challenging game. I grew up on 2d platformers and for your average gamer i'd say the difficulty is good because as it is challenging' it's never impossible and you will keep trying until eventually pass that tricky section. One of the best Wii games of 2010.
Conclusion: If you enjoyed Donkey Kong Country on the SNES then you'll love this. It's a similar, updated and tweeked version of the classic with improved graphics, better game play and much more to do. The story is similar and as you go through the 8 different worlds, all of which have 6 levels, a boss and a bonus level, you'll have to improve your skill and gather hundreds of bananas, KONG letters and puzzle pieces and to add to the vastness of the game, it has a time challenge...
Conclusion: A must have for all DK fans! Very reminiscent to the first Donkey Kong country, the gameplay, map format and traditional music themes. Very simple and basic to know how to play and control. It starts to get difficult when playing the beach. Get if you ever liked Donkey Kong!
Conclusion: I had Donkey Kong 64 which was a 3d platformer made by Rare and it wasn't as enjoyable as Mario 64 or Banjo-Kazooie. Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (Wii) and Donkey Kong: Jungle Climber (Nintendo DS) went back to 2d platforming but some of the old SNES magic was missing still. We now have Retro Studios who did a most excellent job with the Metroid Prime: Trilogy (Nintendo Wii) and they have shown their great powers again and given us the best Donkey Kong game since the SNES...
Conclusion: Donkey kong hasn't had much luck lately, his more recent outings haven't exactly been top quality. Donkey Kong County returns is a great comeback for the Nintendo Gorilla. Anyone who has played the brilliant new super Mario Bros will feel right at home with Donkey Kong Country Returns, the aim of the game is to make it across the stages and worlds collecting collectebles, simple as that.
Conclusion: If you are fan of the Donkey Kong series and that you are not familiar with the new elements and contain a few characters that we know seen in this game. Don't get this, it just isn't the same.
Conclusion: If like me you remember the SNES version from 16 years ago, then you'll love this. It's all about conquering each of an initial eight lushly-coloured worlds, gathering bananas for health and lots of hidden extras, whilst grabbing puzzle pieces or letter icons for bonuses. There's a few different character moves added in addition to the original ones like enlisting the help of Diddy Kong & Rambi the rhinoceros, making the game all the more entertaining.
