    Item Description

    From jungle to beach, caves to volcanoes, mine carts and swinging vines to exploding barrels, Donkey Kong Country Returns will provide hours of adrenaline- fuelled fun for friends, family and Donkey Kong fans alike in this all-new, co-op multiplayer Wii platformer. With Donkey Kong, players can use the motion controls to make him pound the ground, roll into enemies and blow air. Meanwhile, Diddy Kong can make use of a Barrel Jet which offers hovering abilities, as well as a Peanut Popgun, which he can use against enemies whilst hitching a ride on Donkey Kongs back. Youll need to keep your eyes peeled as each level contains secret areas and collectibles. For those players wanting to set their pulses racing even faster, theres a Time Attack mode which challenges you to complete the stage as fast as possible in order to get a gold medal.
    • 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 Kongs back and hop off whenever he pleases, allowing novice players to ride on Donkey Kongs 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.
    • Vibrant colors, beautiful graphics and fun characters draw players in. Even people who have never played a Donkey Kong game before can pick up a controller and start collecting loads of bananas.
    • 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Donkey Kong Rocks!!!!!!!!!! So glad they came out with a new Donkey Kong game!!! Its so much fun! 11/30/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Must-have for Wii I think I paid 25 at the time of purchase (ended up buying two, one for me, one for a friend). Chose in-store pick up, got home sat down and started playing. I am a veteran of the console games of yesteryear, which included the original Donkey Kong (think I had it on Intellivision). At 28 years old now, having played all Donkey Kong games since, I can honestly say this one is better than the original Donkey Kong Country for SNES. This is perhaps the first time I've ever given a higher praise to a newer version of a game. For instance, I loved the Metroid Prime Trilogy (Prime 2 being the best), but I'll say to my dying day, Super Metroid was the best of all. Same with the the Zelda games... A Link to the Past was the best (seeing a proclivity for SNES?). So what's the point I'm getting across? Even with my proclivity for older games, I still think Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii is the best of the Country games. Sounds and Music are great, controls are great, graphics great (for the Wii). Even the level of progressive difficulty is spot on (found the original got too difficult too quickly). It's a casual gamers (or a young kids) perfect mix of progressive difficulty. Not every level has to be beat, but there are added challenges/benefits to get you to spend the time to do so, and collect all puzzle pieces and Kong Letters. If you played the new Super Mario Bros. Wii and liked it, you will like this. If you like this and haven't played the new Super Mario Bros. Wii, you will probably want to pick it up.Bottom line for Donkey Kong Country Returns: Get it. Play it. Love it. 10/30/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by It's ok It doesn't have any snow levels or any swimming levels, but other than that it's good. 12/17/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Brought the game for me. I enjoy playing Donkey Kong Country Returns on my WII and I'm 63years old too. 12/17/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Thought it would be like the old Donkey Kong, but it isn't but alot of fun.Glad I got it... I would reccomend this to all members of the family... 12/04/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by addicting! My 6yr old LOVES this game, he was frustrated at first but the option of having super kong play the level first is fabulous! Once he saw how a level was played and mastered, he was eager to try and take on the challenge. I played myself and the kids love to sit back and laugh as I tried to complete levels LOL Great game and like many others have said GREAT graphics! 02/07/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great graphics and fun worlds to play This game has great graphics and is very funny to watch the boys play. It is really different from other games. There is cool tricks and tools to use. My 6 and 9 year old can both play together and they love it. I would definitely recommend this game. 04/29/2014
