Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
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).
Great Oldschool Fun in 3d
If you liked the donkey kong country games, this is perfect rendition of this popular franchise. Doesn't change the fun mechanics of this platformer and thats the best part.
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.
Thank you Nintendo
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!?
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.
dis game right here is whats up. i give it 2 bananas up. the gameplay is awesome yo, straight out dankville.
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.
I have this game for Wii I can't wait for it for 3ds it donkey kong 3ds can't wait! I just can't believe that there going to have it for 3ds
Classic DK with a twist
Although a bit difficult the game is a great title for the 3DS. The game has about 70 levels, some being short and others quite long. You won't be disappointed.
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.
