Summary: I think I paid 25 at the time of purchase (ended up buying two, one for me, one for a friend). Chose in-store pick up, got home sat down and started playing. I am a veteran of the console games of yesteryear, which included the original Donkey Kong (think I had it on Intellivision). At 28 years old now, having played all Donkey Kong games since, I can honestly say this one is better than the original Donkey Kong Country for SNES.
Summary: I love this game especially the walkthroughs so you know how to complete a level. I love the boss levels and that you can buy extra hearts. The graphics are also great. This is great for older children.
great game but a lil harder than the original lots of new features tho

Nintendo revamps and old classic, and does it well

Summary: Nintendo proves they are still a front runner of the video game industry with this nostalgic addition to the Donkey Kong franchise. Rather than innovating something dissatisfying, Nintendo decided to revamp the SNES classic Donkey Kong Country to format a new era and new system. You will love the picturesque graphics, the limitless secrets and the interactive play-style the Wii is known for as you go through the challenging levels (about 8-10 per world, 8 worlds +1 bonus...
Great, safe game for kids, can be boring for adults

Summary: This is the rating my 6 year old son gives this game. It is simple enough in concept but it isn't a simple game to play. It is challenging in areas, is fun and colorful and keeps you trying. I personally don't really care for the game much - I would give this a 3 rating. I feel it is a good game but I get bored with it way quicker than my sons.
Summary: I love Donkey Kong Country Returns! Its got the same classic fun with a twist. It can be difficult though, so I wouldnt recommend this for very young children but somewhere from 10 years on up. This game has nicely done graphics done in bright jungle colors and definitely more 3d than the originals. This is a lot of fun with two players or simply by yourself even. as far as content goes its a very clean game.
Summary: This game is great!!! It takes the old school side scrolling games to a whole new level... The controls are intuitive and the difficulty seems just right... I have the original DK Country on Super NES and this game is just as good if not better... I would highly recommend it if you enjoy side scrolling games!!!
Summary: This game is seriously incredible. So well done. I loved the Donkey Kong games back when, especially Country. This upgrades the graphics and gameplay, but has that same "magic" feel to it that so many Nintendo games have had over the years. Just fantastically well executed, and above all else, it's just a blast to play...so much fun. Great for kids and adults alike. Highest recommendation without reservation.
