Rated 10 out of 10 by Nightwing DK RETURNS!
Though you can't pick a lot of characters, DK himself is great with so many different moves. Sound is great and better bringing Country 1, 2 and 3 back to life. Graphics rock, best side scroller game for wii! New controls are a lot easier and really fun for wii. New players can get the controls easily too. So far, so good. Original DK fans, this your chance to kick Kritter and Kreeper butt again, with the new wii control it feels like actually you are boxing bad guys. I'm a boxer and boy do I say that's good as my sport! Get this game even if you're a newcomer, best of '09! I received this on the day it came out. And all my friends who think DK's background is dull from the old DK games, loved this compared to mario. Hey, who could blame them, mario galaxy creators had made this. And let me say both are GREATLY SUCCESSFUL!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Wesley37 Jungle for an Upgrade
My Favorite Game of All-Time, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. I have never played it for GCN, Bongos looks fine, but I heard about it by the "New Play Control" Lineup of Games. With some changes they made, it came a Great Concept for a comeback. While the Story can take under a "Day", theres always Replayability by getting 3 Crests (4 in Original) each Level unlocking more Worlds along with Extras like a "Boss Battle" (Kongs only). Gameplay is very Fun with Platforming with Combos with the Kong Battles as the Best Part of the Whole Game. The Controls are well for the Wiimote. The Game Engine is Fantastic by "Nintendo EAD Tokyo" of the "Tokyo Development Group" which also did "Super Mario Galaxy 1/2" seeing how Fluid Gameplay represents, 2D is always enjoyable for Donkey Kong. Lots of Worlds, great Replay Value.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Hrtangel It is sooo addicting
I was looking for a change from sports games when I spoke with the game stop staff. The more I was told about the game, the more exciting I got and I just couldn't wait to get it home. It is so much fun and the graphics are great, remote reactions are right on once you get the hang of the motions. A great change from the sports scene and even better for original Donkey Kong fans. Learning the tricks, experimenting with the hand motions are fairly easy. One of the best parts is actually getting to beat up the bosses, it makes it so much fun and a bit of a workout too without even realizing it. There is no timer to compete against you just take your time and get all you can get. I have recommended this game to friends and have told them how much fun I have with it. Thumbs up to this new game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by NuclearPie Shake that Wii Remote
This game brings some serious punch to Nintendos lineup. Swinging high above the treetops, swimming in tropical seas and running through icey caverns - and oh - did i mention the absolutely epic boss battles?! This game is not exactly "classic" Donkey Kong, there are plenty of mario-ish moves like the ground pount, wall jump, and back flip, but it is a stellar game nonetheless. If you crave a more classic experience, DK Country Returns is your game, but personally, i love this game. Only gripe is that it is much too short... Definitely worth your purchase if you like DK and/or Mario games!
Rated 4 out of 10 by daizylady36 Good game but too short.
This was the first game I got when I purchased my wii. For that reason it took me about a week to beat the game the first time. Once I understood how to use the controller and nunchuck better, it took me only 1 1/2 hours to beat the game. I enjoyed what little game play there was. I think the graphics are nice and the audio was ok. Overall it isn't a bad game, just don't pay too much for it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Nightwing DK Returns! With an Advenutre!
Looks like a great series returning to nintendo, I remeber DK jungle beat, Country 1, 2 and 3! But this looks as good even better, the evidence from the Japanese version proves and shows this might be the best for New Play control edition series, looks real good with old classic DK music! And a great adventure too! Success, for gamers, and DK fans, this game will be!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Redpet10 The updated DK country before DK returns!
If you have DK returns you will get the Gameplay right away.This game was made in 2004 for Gamecube but was remade for the Wii in 2009.DK returns was made in 2010 or 2011.The Music was Weird! The Grapics was like DK returns.Overall it's a 8.7! Ps: DK fur is darker in this game than in DK returns.

Rated 10 out of 10 by dolphinboy Awesome but short
This game is great but it only took one week to beat everything! But it really did give me a workout.
