fun game

  • Summary: Like earlier Donkey Kong Country games, Donkey Kong Country Returns is a side-scrolling platformer, but although the game contains classic references, as well as levels and activities reminiscent of earlier games in the series, it is far from a remake. In fact, Donkey Kong Country Returns stands very much on its own not only in its nearly 3D status, but also in its new visual treatment and control scheme.

Great Game, Great Price, Return to 2D platforming

  • Summary: Is a great game I now have all of the donkey kong games from the nes to the wii now and I have to say this is one of the best. I although do not have the one for the wii u but donkey kong country returns is a great return to the 2D platforming that we saw last on the super nintendo. They brought this one to an all new level though with amazing graphics, new mechanics using the wii remote, and tons of levels new objectives and legendary boss battles.

  • Excerpt: It's got good graphics but it's very hard to play. I've played games since I was 5years old and I'm now 28. Haven't had this much trouble in a while. Even my husband agrees it's tough. Definetely not for kids.
  • Pros: Challenging, Fun To Play, Good Audio, Graphics, Multiplayer
  • Cons: Not kid friendly

  • Summary: My sons enjoy playing this game. It is a little misleading with two players because there is one major role and one minor role. It doesn't seem balanced, but they like it.

Great visuals, tough levels.

  • Summary: Very fun game with lots of surprises around every turn. I'm a 20-something gamer and honestly, this game was tough. I'd spend an hour or two going back over each level trying to finish. Of course they do offer you a cheat- by means of the Super Guide who will do the entire level for you once you die X amount of times. I won't lie, I sometimes was so frustrated I took the offer.

The game could have had a better gameplay

  • Summary: I played Donkey Kong country many years ago, well the trilogy. Those where one of my favorite games of all time. Donkey Kong version Super Nintendo is way better than this one. The game was alright on the begining, until i got to a higher level.I mean I am usually an expert on beating video games,even though I dont play video games much like I use to. I was disapointed with this video game, which i though it was sweet.

This game time traveled me back to 1994.

  • 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. 5 animal friends, 101 hidden bonus stages, hands down the best soundtrack I've heard in a game, and it was just plain fun.

Good game but tricky

  • 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.

Great to play after all the Mario fun

  • Excerpt: My son wanted this game, and I was surprised it was of similar playing style as Super Mario Brothers Wii. At first I thought it was simply A LOT easier than Super Mario, but then I hit level 1-K and I still have not passed it. I moved on and am now on 4-2. So, in a nutshell, this game has some easy parts (and a SuperKong that will help you complete a level like Luigi in Super Mario) but there are also some definite hard parts.
  • Pros: Challenging, Easy to learn, Fun To Play, Good Audio, Graphics, Kid Appropriate
  • Cons: Controller response
