The king of swing is back and he's hungry for adventure (and bananas)! A new 2D platformer in the mould of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong have to battle the evil Tikis in order to restore peace to DK Island.
Donkey Kong plays a bit rougher than Mario though, so as well as jumping on bad guys' heads you'll also be able to use his signature ground pound to disorientate your enemies. All the other classic elements of the original games are back too, including mine cart levels and vine swinging.
The game's no pushover, so it's a good job you can call on Diddy to help you. If you're playing on your own you get to use his jetpack to help you, but if you've a friend to hand they can take control and then ride on Donkey Kong's back if they get to a tricky bit.
Gorilla Games: The classic Donkey Kong Country series returns with all-new 2D action and all the platform action and cartoon fun you'd expect of Mario's oldest ally.
Uncle and Nephew: Find a special barrel and you can bring Diddy Kong into the story and use his jetpack to reach the places Donkey Kong cannot go.
Buried Treasure: Help feed DK's hunger for stolen bananas, as well as mountains of secret extras, including whole new levels and hidden KONG letters.
Co-op Kapers: Play on your own or let a friend take control of Diddy Kong when he's around. Both can play at once or Diddy can take a time out if things get tough.
Monkey Magic: Two separate control systems for veterans and beginners - play the whole game with just a single remote or add in the nuchuck for extra control.

This game is a 2D side scrolling action platforming adventure. Donkey and diddy kong are back and this time we can finally play this game in co-op. Level design is a platforming dream and it all looks cool with the 3D graphics. Whether you are fan of the old games or not this game is a challenge and a joy to play!

Not only is the whole Banana Supply in jeopardy but so is the whole of Kong Island! The wakened spirit of the great Tiki Tong has his minions working their musical magic by possessing the creatures of the island and stealing the hordes of bananas! Only Donkey and Diddy are unaffected and its up to them to save the Island. Hours of fun with this platform, nostalgic Nintendo fans are sure to have!

A brilliant platformer. One of the best games on the Wii. The classic Donkey Kong Country franchise is back in this new 2d platformer. The game boasts plenty of character in both the games bright graphics, quirky characters, great variety in stage design and an excellent jungle themed soundtrack. The gameplay is simple to pick up and play yet difficult to master. It should be noted that the game becomes very tricky in the latter stages. As a result the game will take some time to complete. This is a fantastic sequel to the original SNES games and is a must for all Wii owners.

Donkey Kong has been around for generations and this latest version is a heap of fun to play. Great levels, easy controls and excellent visuals makes this an easy game to spend a lot of time playing. Great to see Diddy added to the gameplay as well. Good price for soo much fun.

Donkey Kong Country Returns is a great update to the SNES series, pairing fun single-player and multiplayer gameplay with upgraded graphics and levels. Having multiple objectives for levels (finishing the level/getting the KONG letters) improves replayability value, and the game controls are good on the Wii. I played the 2-player co-operative mode and found it fun and easy to work together.
