Summary: I recieved this game for christmas, but hadn't planned on buying it due to my lack of interest despite being a veteran gamer who mastered the original DKC trilogy on SNES. When I popped it in and started playing, I thought "Hey this is pretty good.

Summary: Donkey Kong Country is back. The Donkey Kong Country series is one of my favorite in history and I like many was a little worried about this game. I was confident in Retro(Metroid Prime series) to make a good game, but I was scared that it wasn't going to be as good as the original and leave me sad...
Summary: I was fortunate enough to have an SNES when the first Donkey Kong Country hit stores in 1994. That game changed everything in the console war between Nintendo and Sega, and the graphics alone blew everyone's mind. Essentially, DKC was a Super Mario World clone, but my god did it have style.
Summary: Bought this for my 5 year old son for Christmas. he absolutely loves it, and its such a relief to find a game he can figure out and excel at.. many of the other games we have either dont hold his interest or he cant play independently because he cant read yet.
Summary: I couldn't wait to buy this game as soon as it came out. I was expecting the game to be like the original but to my disappointment it wasn't.The game is not bad at all just not what I was expecting. The graphics and colors are amazing. I found the control a bit trick to get the hang of.
Summary: This game is a blast. it takes me back to the good ol days playing donkey kong country which I have. this game is just like the original and the music is the same. I love this game. the only thing that is annoying is diddy kong. all he does is ride your back and has that stupid jet pack.
