Rated 7 out of 10 by Pokeman42 It's alright.
It's alright for a Donkey Kong game. It could be better though. The boss battles are tough, but still manageable.
Rated 8 out of 10 by sportfan15 Donkey Kong is back but.....
This game is good. It is DK. It is a new version of the game. This is no Super Nintendo version of the game. It is much harder then what you would think. I find it harder then then it really should be. It is a good game anyway. Check it out.
Rated 8 out of 10 by sportfan15 Donkey Kong is back
This is a game that brings back memories from the Super Nintendo. This game is different in ways from the other one. The levels are placed differently and this game is much harder then you think. I will take time to beat the game. If you have the guide you should be alright. Those help you out and of course there is always YouTube. This is a game you should really try out.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Diarrhea DK in 3D! (8.5/10)
I have played a lot of Donkey Kong games, from the Game & Watch, to Donkey Kong Racing, to Donkey Kong Country Returns, and I know that this is a great one for anyone who loves the Donkey Kong or Super Mario games. The retro-inspired platforming is fast-paced, and it tests your timing and reflexes as you cart, rocket, and bound from level-to-level, and from world-to-world. Each level is well-designed and creative, although some can be just a little repetitive, which was a bit disappointing, since there aren't that many levels in the first place. The soundtrack is okay, nothing outstanding, but Donkey Kong does make some ridiculous gorilla noises occasionally. The Wii version's graphics and framerate were a little better, but you have to respect the great 3D visuals and the fact that you can't achieve amazing graphics on a handheld system. But still, I have to say that when Donkey Kong shoots himself from a barrel off into the distance, it can be hard to see him sometimes. The extra levels and easy mode for casual gamers was a nice addition, for people who already played the Wii game, although owners of the Wii version might not be entertained for that long (unless they are a true DK fan). Overall, I would actually give this an (8.5/10).
Rated 8 out of 10 by NintendoHistory He returns..... but now in 3d
Donkey Kong Country Returns was an excellent Wii game, and is still great on the 3ds. The only problem is that it doesn't look as good as the wii version did, and the controls don't feel as smooth. For a platformer the 3d is pretty good unlike New Super Mario Bros 2. I highly recommend this game for anyone that does't have the Wii version and for all the Donkey Kong fans out there.
Rated 9 out of 10 by babybadger911 Great Game
This is basically like dk: tropical freeze, just a bit older. This is a great game, and i personally think it is as great as the 3ds classics, such as dark moon, pokemon x, and a link between worlds.
Rated 1 out of 10 by xdrewsopherx Terrible remake
A huge mistake by Nintendo, the gameplay and controls are terrible. Your ability to jump to ledges, over enemies, etc is poorly done. Many frustrated hours of terrible gameplay and aggravating levels that make no sense. Buy at your own risk.

Wow. This is going to be awesome! I'm so glad Nintendo is starting to use Donkey Kong again. We all know about the whole Rare ordeal, but I don't know how it ended. Looks like Nintendo is allowed to us DK again! Whose with me, we need a new DK free roam like DK64!?
Rated 0 out of 10 by iLoveNintendoFlo Donkey Kong Returns
Donkey Kong Country Returns was one of the greatest Wii Games! It had lively worlds with great animaion on all the animals and amazing game design. It was great. The 3D in this game will look great but i hope it lives up to the greatnes of the Wii verison.
