Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Nintendo Wii (also available for the Wii U and as Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the Nintendo 3DS) is a platformer video game made by Nintendo and Retro Studios starring Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. Donkey Kong Country on the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) is a major hit back in the 1990’s that it got two sequels on the same system, Donkey Kong Land series on the GameBoy, Donkey Kong Country on the GameBoy Color and even the Ports of Donkey Kong Country 1, 2 and 3 on the GameBoy Advance. This game is rated E for Everyone by ESRB.

Great Controls either Wii remote and nunchuck or Wii Remote (Horizontal), Great Art Design, Great Levels, Good game mechanics and a fantastic plot to the game which is basically about the evil creatures named Tikis who hypnotise the animals with music to stealing Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong’s Bananas, but they both are resistant to Tikis’ Music Donkey and Diddy Kong work together to retrieve their hoard of bananas.

I don’t have any Cons to this game though.

Overall Donkey Kong Country Returns (for the Wii, 3DS and Wii U) is a great game because of great controls, great levels and good game mechanics and I highly recommend this great game to platformer fans, hard core Donkey Kong Fans and even those who want to get into gaming in general.

A great game that deserves a great score.

Donkey Kong Country Returns: Rating 10/10
