Controlled by a group of evil Tikis, the animals in Donkey Kong Island have raided Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard and stolen his stash of bananas 8211; and he understandably wants them back <P>Retro Studios brings Donkey Kong back a side-scrolling adventure with familiar characters and amazing levels that reignite the passion players had for the Super NES original. And For the first time ever, the franchise features the ability for two people to play together at the same time 8211; one as Donkey Kong, one as Diddy Kong. Players can navigate the levels separately or as one unit. Diddy Kong can ride on Donkey Kong's back and hop off whenever he pleases, allowing novice players to ride on Donkey Kong's back through more challenging areas of the game.
The Donkey Kong Country Returns game for Wii gives you the best of both jungles: the side-scrolling fun of the original version combined with 3D graphics and Wii motion control. In this game, the animals on Donkey Kong Island have been forced to steal Donkey Kong's banana stash, and you need to help him get it back. For even more fun, you can play simultaneously with a friend, one playing as Donkey Kong and the other playing as Diddy Kong.

I got this for my 9 year-old little brother for Christmas and he hasn't put it down since he opened it. He loves all the levels and I have to admit watching him jump around the living room to do all the special moves is quite entertaining.  see moreof 's review

      This game is very relaxing and pleasant to look at as it is played. Many games use strange backgrounds in fantasy-type settings. I do not enjoy those backgrounds, and do not enjoy "playing in them". This game actually got my attention. The relaxing, normal looking settings have created an atmosphere...  see moreof AZ Anasazi's review
