    An excellent entry into a venerable franchise.

    A title worth every bit of its pedigree. DKCTF is not your average platformer and requires patience and skill to succeed. The game doesn't hold your hand and can be unforgiving which makes the game all the more rewardin... Read Full Review

    Better Than Expected

    Never really gave Donkey Kong Country Returns a chance. This game's so good that's changed, because all I want is more now. Jumping between the prior installment and this one makes it easy to appreciate the great leap... Read Full Review

    DK's back and it's worth it.
