  1. My grandson will love to hear this. He will want the Donkey Kong Country Returns for his DS

  2. I am not very big into video games, but remember this one from when I was a kid! Bet this newest version is a lot of fun

  3. I bet my grand daughter would love this. She’s big into video games and she’s just nine years old.

  4. The Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D contains some action packed adventures, with dynamic 3D graphics combined. Still have to roll those barrels and gather banana’s while swinging through the jungle so not much changes there. I saw one review that said the game was challenging but not challenging enough to frustrate you. Interesting!
    The biggest addition to the game is the easier difficulty level called “New Mode”. is still great to play With the 3D version you can buy a handful of special items that take the edge off the more unforgiving elements.
