Product Description

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

Donkey Kong’s ultimate platforming adventure barrel-blasts onto Wii U! Team up with buddies to master their moves, from Diddy Kong and his jetpack to the fresh additions of Dixie Kong with her spinning ponytail and Cranky Kong with his pogo-cane jump. Journey across 6 distinct islands filled with dynamic levels and non-stop action.

Reclaim the now-frozen DK Island from the invading Snowmads. Master Donkey Kong’s ground pound and each of his buddy’s unique abilities to navigate diverse island environments like Mangrove swamps, Savannah storms, ocean depths, and the frozen lands of DK Island. The barrel-blasting, mine-carting action of Donkey Kong Country is back, along with a bushel of new features like upgraded underwater swimming, a new “plucking” system, dynamic viewing angles from a rotating camera, and collectables galore. Team up with friends in local 2-player multiplayer* to share in the adventure and reclaim DK Island from a host of wintery baddies and bosses.

Key Features
  • Journey through all-new levels that twist, turn and transform in consistently fresh ways. Plus, enjoy spectacular views thanks to the dynamic, rotating camera.
  • Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong join in the adventure as a playable character alongside Diddy Kong. Any of them can buddy up with Donkey Kong to shake up the action.
  • Fight off the arctic invading Snowmads as you run, jump, roll, “pluck” and swim across six distinctly themed islands, each packed with lively levels of non-stop action and surprises.
  • Team up with friends in local, cooperative multiplayer that lets two players share in the adventure*.
  • Discover hidden areas and gather numerous collectibles to unlock additional content, use life-saving items, or catch a ride on diverse vehicles.
  • Enjoy new music from the original composer of the Donkey Kong Country series.

*Additional accessory required, sold separately.

I have played it twice all the way through. I'm quite glad it's possible to play with the wii remote, as I much prefer that to the unused gamepad. The difficulty curve is just right and the gameplay is just as good as DKC: Returns, if not better.

What makes this game truly outstanding in my books is the look and feel. Every part of the design from the menus to the enemies to the environment to each member of the kong crew is so lush and bursting with personality, it's almost impossible to play it without a silly grin on your face. The feeling is greatly enhanced by (what is in my opinion) the greatest video game soundtrack to date, by the incredibly talented David Wise. Levels like Windmill Hills, Grassland Groove, Panicky Paddles, and Seashore War are among the most enjoyable platforming experiences, ever.

If you want a hardcore platformer, this is a good buy, especially once you start digging into hard mode and time trials. If you want an experience that is a smorgasbord for the senses, this game delivers like no other.

Last time I played Donkey Kong was probably version 1.0 :) - remember Nintendo 64??? I only remember some monkey climbing to the top of some tower to rescue some princess and that it was fun. This is SO much different but SO much better! What an amazing side scorlling platformer! It took me three days to get through the first level but I kept trying and finally made it! Ignore the person that says it will be a dust collector; after the first checkpoint it's extremely difficult if you don't normally play these types of games and the hints I found didn't work for me. I had to try a slightly different attack and not use Diddly till after I picked off the 3rd puzzle piece, and then it was clear sailing out - sort of lol. I love the pig hints, the music and all the yippees and yahoos! The scenery is great too! I played the whole startup sequence for my parents just to give them an idea what it's all about (I'm 55!) and even they were impressed since they own a wii. Highly recommended and by far my favorite game.

Do not hesitate to purchase this if you liked any of the other games in this series. Nintendo has captured the spirit of the older versions and brought it to life in 2014.

This game is a great addition to the Donkey Kong Country series! I remember the original coming out for the SNES back when I was like 16 and I STILL enjoy it as much today as I did then! The graphics look amazing with the Wii U and this game (in my opinion) is exactly what the system is for! Unfortunately, in today's gaming world, I have come too accustomed to the "complex" controller system, so the simplicity of the controls on this game took quite a bit of getting used to! (I am playing with a Wii U Pro so maybe the extra buttons confused me for a while?) Anyways, after learning the controllers and what buttons are useless I was able to get into the swing of things. Get it?! Ooooook.

As stated in the subject,..I'm playing Co-op with a 9 yr old and this pretty much puts the game on INSANE difficulty as the screen doesn't stretch the way NSMB does when characters get far apart, you simply disappear off screen as your "co player" (a sugar-charged kid) rushes his character forward at lightning speed without the thought of upcoming enemies, traps, holes,....you get the point.

Final Verdict: Buy It! This is the DKC you know and love!

I was never a donkey kong fan, his googly eyes and gorilla demeanor scared me whenever I'd see him in other games like SSB4 or MK8. But I decided to go on a limb for this game because of the glowing reviews from everyone.
I know see what they were talking about.
Great gameplay that IS ACTUALLY CHALLENGING, other nintendo games (most notably: Super Mario 3D World) have gameplay that is meant for easy and casual playing with family. The bosses are the highlight in this game, it's been awhile since I've been challenged on such a level in platformers. DK moves like a momentum filled boulder, he can dash really quick but not jump really high and that creates a unique play style that I've not seen before (mainly because this is my first DK game).
I have no idea how the multiplayer is, just saying.
It has a nice aesthetic that varies from world to world and everything runs smoothly.
If you were hesitant, like me, go out on a limb and buy this game, you won't regret.

One of the best Wii U games. I'm a casual gamer and I'm selective about which games I add to my Wii U collection; I don't have much time or money to waste on mediocre games so I only have about 10 in my collection. This is one of my favourites, it's just a fantastic platformer. Great graphics, really great music, plenty of levels, and the rewards are just difficult enough to make you want to complete the game 100%. The overall difficulty is pretty high which I don't normally like, and there was some trial and error, but not overly so: it didn't feel like the game was giving me cheap deaths, and I got better and better the more I played. At a certain point I was impressed with myself for being able to complete harder levels with ease.
