Donkey Kong Country Returns
Many of us who grew up in the 90’s have fond memories of the original Donkey Kong Country for the SNES. So when Nintendo announced this long-awaited sequel, we were a bit hesitant. Too often companies try to re-hash childhood classics hoping to make a quick buck selling to nostalgic adults.
Fortunately, Nintendo isn’t one of those companies. They spared no expense recreating the look the feel of the original Donkey Kong while updating the graphics and incorporating the Wii’s unique motion controls. Donkey Kong Country Returns reminds us that DK is back and better than ever, but make no mistake, this game is just as difficult as the original. Be prepared to replay a few levels. Lucky for us, they’re all a blast.
