Great graphics... easy to play.... brings memories from the old game.... you will love it!!
This game has the best graphics for a wii game. It is not easy though, the first levels get you used to timing your jumps and there is no clock, so take your time. If you lose several lives in one stage the "super guide" feature (like in Super Mario Bros. wii) will ask you if you need help and can pass the stage for you. Two players can help each other but in later levels you should have the computerized diddy kong help you so you can control all the action. The second player may not jump just right and mess up the play. Your wii remote can be turned sideways to play or use the nunchuck with it. The classic controller is not supported. Each world will have a shop where you can buy extra lives, key to open a locked stage, and many other items to help you. Overall one of the best games for the wii but be prepared for a challenge.
nintendo does it again! awesome game for all ages.
One of the BEST games Wii has ever made!!! If you loved the old Donkey Kong, then this game is for you! Old meets New!!!
very fun! not quite like 1st , but very near!---my grandchildren really enjoy it!
This Wii game was lots of fun for our grandchildren to play - they loved it - ages 5-7 & 8. We enjoyed watching them play this - seeing the fun & enjoyment they were having.
Three words: GET THIS GAME! This is hands down the best game that I own for the Wii system. Loads of fun for both single and multiplayer. This game is very similar to the older ones, but jam packed with new features. The graphics are not too bad either. Get this game, you will not be disappointed.
I have a four year old and six year old and they LOVE this game. It makes them think about how they are going to pass the levels. I have also played and I enjoy it very much!
So glad they came out with a new Donkey Kong game!!! Its so much fun!
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.
I enjoy playing Donkey Kong Country Returns on my WII and I'm 63years old too.
It doesn't have any snow levels or any swimming levels, but other than that it's good.
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!
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...
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.
my wife wanted this game can't wait to give it to her on christmas
My Grandson played the demo at Walmart and just had to have it (it was his birthday), so I purchased it for him. We have played with it for hours just having the best time; so many games and levels and new tricks and functions. What a great way to spend time with your 6 year old Grandson.
I love Donkey Kong and Diddy, and the Return is so much and challenging. You have to work hard at this game, and that makes it great. plus, if you get stuck there is a super guide to help you see how to do it. Me and my 2 nephews like the graphics and we are having a blast with this Christmas gift.
My 10 year old son got this for Christmas and absolutely loves it.
I purchased the latest Donkey Kong video game for my youngest son. He has always been an avid Nintendo fan and this game proved to be all he expected and much more. He was extremely pleased to get it and I am glad that I found it at Walmart and had it in time for Christmas!
