It's On Like Donkey Kong!
on December 13, 2010
If I had to pick out one glaring fault with Donkey Kong Country Returns, it would be the lack of classic controller support. Old school gamers will be disappointed that it wasn't included, but will be able to adapt to the new controls. However, the rest of the game really fires on all cylinders; dare I say, better than New Super Mario Bros. It's pretty amazing to see Retro Studios improve on Rare's original classic, both in game design and challenge to the player. If you have a love for platformers or are simply looking for a new challenge, don't hesitate to pick up Donkey Kong Country Returns. It also makes for an excellent gift for all ages due to the entertaining feel and increasing difficulty at the game progresses. Highly Recommended!
