    A fun variation on the original game.

    At the beginning of this Mario has gotten his revenge against Donkey Kong in this sequel to the original classic, Donkey Kong. This time instead, Mario is the villain and has captured the big monkey and put him in a cage... Read Full Review

    This can be a tough sell, even for $5.

    With the Wii's virtual console offering tons of titles, it can be hard to fidn the gems among the garbage. Donkey Kong Jr. nay have been good for its time, but in todays world, it is so out dated that even for $5, it can... Read Full Review

    Wonderful entry to DK's future adventure games. Climb vines, grab fruit, and avoid mechanical crocs!

    I grew up playing this, and it is fun. Instead of Mario rescuing the girl from DK, DK Junior rescues DK from Mario! What I like about this game is the fact that you play as DK Junior, who has starred in other games. As t... Read Full Review

    A cute game about a kid breaking his homicidal father out of prison....and they're monkies.

    Kids. They love their daddies. Unless they're Emo. Then they write poetry about how much they hate their daddies. But if you're a monkey kid, you love your daddy so much that you're willing to put on a white t-shirt and ... Read Full Review
