Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D




Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D 


I have never been big on the Donkey Kong Country games. In fact I have personally not touched them since they were on the SNES. Other members of Family Friendly Gaming Nation have played and reviewed them. When Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D arrived for the Nintendo 3DS I was super excited to play it though.

The Wii game Donkey Kong Country Returns has been completely rebuilt from the ground up. New options and features have been added to Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. A casual mode has been added so this extremely difficult game can be made a little bit easier. A Super Guide has also been added.

Since Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is a Nintendo game then you can expect all kinds of hidden areas, objects, and items to collect. We can spell KONG in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D if we find all the letters in the levels. There are also puzzle pieces that can be collected in the levels.

Extra lives are earned by finding red balloons, purchasing them in Cranky's Shop, getting a red balloon at the end of the level, or collecting one hundred bananas. You will need them, just trust me on that. I also strongly recommend using the Super Guide before getting too frustrated in a level. You can always go back and replay the level later.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D does one really cool thing in my humble opinion. It reminds you to take breaks. As a professional video game reviewer I just smile. Families appreciate neat little features like that. I personally appreciate Nintendo being pro-active with issues like video game addiction. Maybe they read my book Video Game Lies.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is a solid deep game with all kinds of diversity to it. Players can jump on enemies, pound the ground to turn them over, and punch certain enemies off the screen. The 3D effects look absolutely awesome in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. The jungle sounds and track list are classic Donkey Kong.

All in all I found Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D to be a challenging title that lives up to the Donkey Kong Country franchise. The small graphics felt weird a few times, but I adapted to them. There are many cool additions like multi-player modes, and the casual mode. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D does a really good job of targeting the broadest grouping of people.
