Summary: This game reminds me a lot of Super Mario Bros in its gameplay and although it is very tricky in places my 8 year old son is now on the last world and coping quite well with it. It is not however for the faint hearted or for those who are very easily frustrated or who give up easily. Some children will get frustrated now and again with this game but when they complete that difficult level the sense of satisfaction is immense.
Summary: Even though I gave the game 4 stars, this is not going to be a positive review. First off, let me say that this is a very fun game, and overall very well made. The worlds are beautiful, the music's great, gameplay is awesome. It's one of the most enjoying platform games I've played. However, its title contains the words 'Donkey Kong Country', so inevitably I have to compare it to the original.
Summary: If you played Donkey Kong when you were younger, then you will appreciate, and love this game. It is exactly the way you remember it, with a few changes (obviously). But is no less fun than it used to be! I got this for my son's birthday (used, which means it was already open), and I decided to have a shot of it, now I want to give it to him early, so I can play it! :S. All I can say to all the Donkey Kong fans: This is a must have game!!!
Summary: Brought this one for my husband, as he use to play the old game of Donkey Kong. He does not have very good eye hand co-ordination and this was brought to help him regame some. The whole family enjoyed playing this, and found it help to release the every day stress in a fun way. good value and very entertaining.
Summary: I bought this for my 6 year old grandson for Christmas and ever since he won't leave it alone! He is smitten by it, so much so that my daughter has had to impose a limit on the amount of time he is allowed to spend on it. Be warned - if you buy this game for a child, be prepared for the fight of game versus homework! A brilliant game, perhaps just a bit too brilliant.
Excerpt: "...being big fans of the Donkey Kong games (especially the Snes game), we decided to buy Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Nintendo Wii. This game was released last Christmas (2010) however we only got around to buying and playing it now. What first attracted us to this game was the fact that you can play as Donkey Kong and his son Diddy Kong at the same time on the same screen co-operatively, this means that you don’t have to wait your turn to play ...
Pros: good game, good price, can play 2 player co - operatively
Excerpt: "Donkey Kong Country Returns. Nintendo Wii ** Donkey Kong Country Returns** Being a huge fan of Donkey Kong Country back in the days of the SNES I was quite excited last year when I heard that Donkey Kong Country Returns was due to be released on the Wii. I made a very excited phone call to my mum one evening on my way home from work, she was just as excited as me and asked me if I would like it for Christmas. That was a silly question really! So, ...
