EuroGamer - Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D review

EuroGamer - One of the more striking differences between Mario and Donkey Kong is that the gorilla still carries the swagger of an ex-villain with him. He barges, charges and pummels his way through his levels, he's a friend to the hit-pause and the shoulder slam, and his Yoshi stand-in - for the few glorious moments that you generally get to enjoy him - is a grubby little rhino who looks like he might have spent some serious time in the big house. Donkey Kong games feel heavier than Mario games - slower when turning, deadlier when they've picked up momentum. The art's a touch less charming, but to make up for that you get a world of taut drum skins ripe for pounding, hobbling crabs ripe for pounding and, well, anything else that could conceivably be made ripe for pounding, really. (3DS, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D) 8/10
