Product Details:

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze: The first Wii U installment in the franchise comes from Retro Studios. The side-scrolling platformer has beautiful HD graphics that show fine details, such as Donkey Kong's fur. Dixie Kong joins the adventure, which features the Kongs swimming underwater and moving from the foreground to the background. This time, the camera changes perspective on certain levels to enhance the sense of motion and to deliver new experiences.

The Snowmads Have Taken DK Island. Can You and the Kongs Take it Back?

Help Donkey Kong and his friends save their home and banana hoard from marauding Vikings in the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze game from Retro Studios. All the challenging ground-pounding, barrel-blasting, side-scrolling mine cart action from the Donkey Kong Country series is back along with a bushel of new game play elements and features.

Characters

This banana-loving, barrel-bashing hero is ready to take on the Snowmads - with a little help from his friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Donkey Kong Country Game! Tropical Freeze on Wii U, is probably my favorite DK game. The game is very challenging, and keeps the player hooked! The graphics are stunning, lush, and charming. The music, is composed by the same guy who did the soundtrack for original Donkey Kong Country games. The gameplay, constantly throws obstacles, and creates a sense of speed, and difficult challenge. The game did take me a while to master, but despite this, I loved every minute of it. Tropical Freeze, tops DK Returns in every way possible. If you own a Wii U, but not this game, BUY IT NOW!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peeled Back to the Roots Tropical Freeze reminds us that Donkey Kong Country was once a great series. Though the game may seem very basic they (Nintendo) has made necissary changes in order to make this series popular again. If you're a fan of platformers or old school Nintendo this is a great game to pick up and a must have for Wii U owners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DK is still a classic in my book This is a fun game as of right now. It kinda has the same layout as the DS game. This is a different game through and through. Just the layout is kinda the same. The levels are kinda the same but the compact is different. Different emetine sand all. This is a fun game. If you ever played the DK from the Super Nintendo days then this would be a surprise of how far it has come from then. Good game so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DK is looking good Donkey Kong is looking good on the Wii U. The game was challenging for me. You have to play with precision. Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong join the adventure to add more options and combinations. Each stage is a bit long but they are more dense and packed with action. The ability to swim underwater makes a return so this adds more variety and possibilities to the courses. I am a bit disappointed that no new animal buddies existed. I was hoping for an animal with some of the underwater courses. The picture is very good and it is much more detailed than Donkey Kong Returns for Nintendo Wii. David Wise returned to write the music for the soundtrack. There is new music and some remixes, which is good because you do not want another game with the same music rearranged. There are also more opportunities to challenge yourself once you play through the game once. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great graphics, fun, challenging. I've always been a fan of the Donkey Kong Country games, so I was excited to hear that there was a sequel to Donkey Kong Country Returns. First off, this game is extremely fun. There are so many fun and challenging levels that you can put many hours into. This is also the best looking DKC game to date. The HD graphics on the Wii U make this game absolutely beautiful. Warning: this game is not for the casual gamer. The later levels are very hard and frustrating. If you are like me, you will love these levels. Overall, this is a must by for any DKC fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun game. Especially fun on two players. I highly enjoy that you can play as Cranky and how he controls. Plus I love the visuals and sound.
