"After playing Donkey Kong Country Returns, I had a craving to go back in time and experience the game that started it all. Proud of the fact that I had completed what I considered to be a fairly challenging game, I thought playing the original Donkey Kong Country would be a cakewalk.
Of course, I was wrong. The margin for error in Donkey Kong Country was much smaller than I remembered. That, or I’m getting old and losing my touch with platformers."
