Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze 

 

Hardcore gamers can rejoice now that Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze has been released on the Wii U. Expect your favorite monkey characters (not rolling around in see through balls) to make appearances. Expect the intense difficulty from start to finish. Expect tough and long boss battles.

You fit into one of two categories. Either you have played a Donkey Kong Country game before, or you have not. If you have then you will most likely embrace how great Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze looks. If you have not yet played a DKC game, you can still appreciate how great this home console game looks. The hair on the monkeys flows around freely.

Families are offered two ways to purchase Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. They can buy a disc from a retailer or a direct download from Nintendo. The direct download is 11 gigs in size. The main man here at Family Friendly Gaming had to delete almost every other downloaded Wii U game to make room for Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. Keep that in mind when making your decision.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze sounds about as good as it looks. There are plenty of well known DKC sounds in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. The music jams, and fits this home console game nicely. The freezing theme of the bad guys is a nice touch.

Donkey Kong is the main playable character in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. He will get one of the other monkeys on his back when he finds barrels. They will offer an additional skill. For example Cranky Kong will allow you to Scrooge McDuck cane bounce.

Look everywhere in the levels of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze to find secrets. There are so many different things to collect in this monkey business Wii U game. This is part of the reason Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is so challenging. You can collect something, and die. You go back to the last checkpoint, and you lose the item you collected. I collected some items ten times in a row before finally making it to the next checkpoint.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze reminds me of Job 1:21 "And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord." Why? Because Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze gives extra lives and takes them away. No I am not comparing Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze to God. Just how easy it is to gain extra lives, and lose extra lives in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze.

Aside from the extreme difficulty in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, families will also need to aware of the violence. A variety of creatures can be jumped on, pounded, and hit with objects. Donkey Kong is destructive in a variety of levels too.
