    DKC Tropical Freeze is a fantasic follow-up to the 2010 prequel.

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was originally released on the Wii U back in 2014. I actually did not play this game until the Switch port of the game released earlier this month, as I am not (and will never be) a ... Read Full Review

    Excellent retro title, and unlike Mario Odyssey, its main game keeps up challenge

    Mario Odyssey was a great game, tho it only really got truly challenging toward the Dark Side and the Darker Side, or if you're going for 100%. The rest of the main game was enjoyable, but easier. Donkey Kong Country: Tr... Read Full Review

    My favorite platformer

    I love this game. After seeing many professional reviewers crap on this game. I felt obligated to fight for it. I absolutely love how the games characters tell a story within their animations. The level designs tell a st... Read Full Review

    "Stay frosty" for yet another spectacular addition to the Donkey Kong Country franchise

    The Donkey Kong Country franchise has been around since 1994. The first one on the Super Nintendo was, dare I say, just as good or better than the formula for Super Mario World on the same console. Years later, two more ... Read Full Review

    Walton was kind of wrong, but he had a point
