Summary: I played this game last night. I don't think it's as fun as the original SNES Donkey Kong Country... I expected better graphics, I almost feel like it's more crisp and clear in the SNES version! I don't like how you can't play with diddy kong unless in 2 player mode.
Summary: Play this with my 6 year old and it is Okay, not great. Only thing I wish they had done was have some secret codes so you don't have to restart levels all the time. Young kids get frustrated easily and eventually the game will start collecting dust rather than continually trying a level.
Summary: If this were a new standalone game and not a sequel to an incredible series, it would be an okay game. If this were made by someone other than Retro, the developers of Metroid Prime, I would consider it a decent attempt.
Summary: Do you remember when games used to be hard? Nintendo does. Donkey Kong Country Returns is hard. It's "we'll make you cry in frustration" hard. I haven't beaten the game because there just came a point where I no longer made progress.
Donkey Kong Country is back, but not exactly for the better.

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: I played the SNES Donkey Kong countries some time ago and, while they were difficult, it is incredible that from world 3 onwards it becomes really difficult at some parts. I became a bit desperated to beat them at some points.
