Summary: This brief game (a skilled gamer could put it down in probably less than five hours) mostly eschews the classic formula of the previous DK games where you can take your time and explore up, down, forward, and back to find bananas and coins and other hidden goodies. To be sure you can do this in several levels of this game but most levels really keep you moving forward and a faster clip and your main objective is simply to collect as many bananas as possible as those...
Summary: I had been wanting this game after I saw it on the gameCube, but I didn't get it because of the drums needed. I bought because of the new Wii controls game. I would give it 5 stars, if not for the clunky controls. DK is hard to move around and sometimes when sharp turns are required, he won't turn quickly and it is annoying. Also the screen backs up to far sometimes and makes DK too small to see. The game starts off close up and nice and big, but then zooms out?!
Summary: This game brings some serious punch to Nintendos lineup. Swinging high above the treetops, swimming in tropical seas and running through icey caverns - and oh - did i mention the absolutely epic boss battles?! This game is not exactly "classic" Donkey Kong, there are plenty of mario-ish moves like the ground pount, wall jump, and back flip, but it is a stellar game nonetheless.
Summary: This game is a mix between Wii Fit and a regular Donkey Kong game. You must shake the Wiimote in certain situations to win the objective. PROS * good exercise * good clean fun * motion control * after-goal minigames of collecting bananas (shaking controllers as quickly as you can) * great graphics for 480p CONS * sweating while playing a game (although some parents may disagree) * defeating bosses were tedious and detracted from the game * catching fruit during boss...
Got to get a hang of it. Not like the old version.

Summary: I'm not sure if we know how to play this one. We tried last night and didn't get very far. The old games were easier to work with but I'm sure we'll get the hang of it. If not, the grandkids surely will. Great for exercising the arms and fingers.
Summary: Purchased this game as I was a big fan of the Donkey Kong on the Game Cube and was hoping for a similar game. Graphics and action are great as most Nintendo products are. Not as much adventure as I would have liked in the individual kingdoms that you get to play. Be ready for a GOOD workout for your arms, wrists and shoulders. Great family action game.
Summary: I liked the game, but so far it seems quite easy. I've already found my third kingdom (I guess that means on the third level?) and I played for maybe 30-45 minutes. It doesn't take long to get...either way, it's still fun when you are really bored!
