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.

Really really really hard game however it's so much fun. The only bad thing about it is just to shake the controller for some stuff like rolling. It's a great game that's a lot like the original trilogy

When the old is new again. The original Donkey Kong Country titles still hold up well to this day. It is no wonder then that this new entry in the series captures so much of that old charm and gameplay. This time around, two people can play at the same time. This really shines and gives players what they wanted for such a long time. Another classic worth every little bit.

Donkey Kong Country Returns brings back the classic SNES-era gameplay of the Donkey Kong Country series. It is a worthy successor, and provides some truly excellent 2D platforming action. All the classics are back including fast-paced jungle levels, animal companions, and complex boss battles. Be warned however, this is a very difficult game. You will die a lot, and sometimes if will feel very unfair. But it's a worthwhile and rewarding challenge.

A great game and another fun edition to the classic series. Had really high hopes and expectations from this game and in most aspects in did not disappoint. A few of the levels were more frustrating than fun and some of the controls seemed awkward to navigate and execute but overall a great game and one the whole family can enjoy. Would recommend to anyone who is a fan of the DK franchise.
