I can almost hear the haters now, complaining about Nintendo re-releasing a two year old game onto the 3DS, but such gripes are unfounded in my opinion. While it is true that this is *mostly* a port of the fantastic platformer from a couple years back, there are definitely enough additions and differences to make this a game that may be the preferred version among fans. Seeing how this is a game that has, for the most part, been accessible since 2010, I'll focus mainly on discussing the differences between this version and the original and whether or not you'll want to even bother buying this.

In the rare case that you're not familiar with Donkey Kong Country Returns, I'll sum the game up thusly: It is easily one of the best Wii games, arguably the best Donkey Kong game that has ever been released, and it's a real contender for best 2-D platformer of the past two decades. It is that good. The whole experience is just saturated with nostalgia while still feeling extremely fresh. The visuals are colorful and stylistic, and the music is wonderful, whether the tune is classic or new. The level design and game mechanics are amazingly well-crafted, the difficulty and satisfaction in the game is huge, and most importantly, the control mechanics are so tight you can bounce a quarter off of the game and make change. Much like the original DKC trilogy, the gameplay has an awesome rhythmic quality to it. Yes, the game may be missing King K. Rool and the Kremlings as villains, and many of DK's relatives we've all come to know and love don't show up, but for the most part, Donkey Kong Country Returns really is the quintessential Donkey Kong game, and should not be missed.

In 1994, Rare developed a little game called Donkey Kong Country that became a huge smash on the Super Nintendo. It went on to sell millions of copies and was even followed up by two sequels. After the Donkey Kong Country trilogy came we were subjected to Donkey Kong 64 and then numerous strange games that seemed to feature Donkey Kong, but not exactly play like Donkey Kong. Thus, when Donkey Kong Country Returns first came out, it was easy to be excited. Because it was the first time in a over a decade that we got the chance to play a traditional Donkey Kong Country game and the results are fantastic. When it was released on the Wii in 2010 it was hailed as an instant classic. Now the game is getting a 3DS port and it's still pretty good.

The original game followed the tale of Donkey Kong. His bananas were taken by King K. Rool and Donkey Kong had to go out, along with Diddy Kong, to get them back. Donkey Kong Country Returns goes back to that. But instead of King K. Rool and Kremlings it's a bunch of Tiki's that have done this. It's actually very hard NOT to miss the Kremlings. Especially in a Donkey Kong game that's supposed to be a return to things. But you won't mind too much because the level designs and the challenge this game evokes is absolutely fantastic.

You'll go by on a world map from one level to the next completing them in an effort to get back your bananas from those Tiki's. They all start off rather easy at first, teaching you basic things and hoping you can keep up with all you've been taught. The first two worlds in particular are cake walks but once you get to world 3 things really pick up and start to become challenging. The gameplay is extremely familiar to anyone who played the original Donkey Kong Country games from a long time ago.

I'm one of the sad folks who never got a chance to play Donkey Kong Country Returns on its native Wii platform. I played it for a few minutes at my local Best Buy a few years back and was instantly enthralled, but somehow I just never got around to picking it up. Fast forward to E3 2012 when the news of the 3DS port broke, and suddenly my interest is piqued once more. Since then my anticipation of the game grew to completely unexpected levels, and it was a wonderful feeling to finally download it and give it a run. I've been playing it steadily since then, and I can confirm that it's everything I wanted it to be.

This game is a very rare treat, as it's likely the only modern platformer I've played that actually feels the way it should. So many developers add guns or other tricks to their games, and most often they opt to use a visual style that is either retro or rather minimalistic. But this game is completely different; since this generation began I've dreamed of the sorts of things that could be done with 2.5D gaming, and DKCR3D is the first game to nail it. This game is absolutely oozing with charm, and the visuals are top-notch. The animations are fluid, the environments are lush and dynamic, and the experience as a whole just has an enormous amount of polish. Even on the tiny 3DS screen the backgrounds can be breathtaking, and with crumbling statues and sailing ships and even enormous enemies coming forward to interact with the player every level is a thrill. One of my problems with the New Super Mario Bros. games is that the levels have a very copy-paste quality. It seems like a group of kids could come up with a whole Mario game in a matter of days, and as such I never find myself wanting to spend money on them.
