Features

Features
Controlled by a group of evil Tikis, the animals in Donkey Kong Island have raided Donkey Kong’s Banana Hoard and stolen his stash of bananas – and he understandably wants them back. Retro Studios brings Donkey Kong™ back in a new side-scrolling adventure with familiar characters and new levels that reignite the passion players had for the Super NES™ original.

Features

Retro Studios faithfully restores everything that made the original series great, from barrel cannons to mine carts, and then builds on those elements with stunning graphics and new layers of depth to the world and game play. The game offers the traditional side-scrolling experience everyone loved, but with levels created in fully rendered 3-D environments.

Diddy Kong™ joins the quest. With his trusty backpack, he can produce a jet pack or Peanut Pop Guns to give Donkey Kong more abilities.

For the first time ever, the franchise features the ability for two people to play together at the same time – one as Donkey Kong, one as Diddy Kong. Players can navigate the levels separately or as one unit. Diddy Kong can ride on Donkey Kong’s back and hop off whenever he pleases, allowing novice players to ride on Donkey Kong’s back through more challenging areas of the game

Hidden items, puzzle pieces and other surprises are found all through the jungle. Spell out K-O-N-G by the end of each level to earn an extra bonus.

Motion controls give players a real feeling of control. Players move Donkey Kong using the Control Stick on the Nunchuk™ controller and can shake the Wii Remote™ controller to make Donkey Kong slap the ground.

Every level offers new fun and new challenges. Sometimes Donkey Kong is running through the jungle, sometimes his action takes place on a tropical beach and other times he must become a master of timing as he jumps chasms in a mine cart.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent game

Pros: A great and nostalgic experience for gamers who had played the Donkey Kong Country games from the SNES. Retro Studios continues to show why it is among Nintendo's best first party studios.

Cons: This is a difficult game to beat for 100% as the difficulty in achieving all of the items in each level can be taxing to gamers. Mirror mode can be brutal at times.

Other Thoughts: For those who love the Donkey Kong Country games from the SNES, they should definitely pick this game up as this is one of the best games for the Nintendo Wii.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a game

Pros: It works.

Cons: The high price of console games. Hello, tech companies, this is why so many people pirate your wares!

Other Thoughts: The original Donkey Kong from the early 80's is still the best!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: So much fun. If you liked the side scrolling ones for SNES, you will LOVE this one. Same controls and feel. Much better graphics(as expected), new abilities, and some fun new features. One of my favorite games.

Cons: The only thing I could think of is that this game is a bit short. I know it is not meant for 20-year-olds, and becasue of that I didnt have much trouble with the levels and was able to beat most of it within a few days. However, there are some unloackable levels that are VERY difficult. Not really a con since this game is made for people 1/2 my age.

Other Thoughts: Hellknight13 needs to learn how to spell. Fail-City.
