Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Review | Ready-Up

Ready-Up writes:

'Kong-Ratulations to Retro Studios!!

OK, let’s get this out of the way first: Donkey Kong Returns 3D is one of the best platformers on the 3DS, second only to the Mario series. It’s an almost direct port of the 2010 Wii game with some minor, and one major, improvement. It’s a new-school remake of an old-school classic, and looks and plays almost exactly the same as the SNES version did. Unlike the old version which just had 3D renders of complex polygon models, here the whole thing is rendered in 3D. You pound the ground, and the background shakes in time with your thumps. The 3D is used really well too, with waves crashing into the screen, Mario’s early nemesis shoots into the background, and there’s a sense of depth to the 2.5D platformer that shows off the 3D capabilities of the 3DS In fact, it works so well that it’s surprising to learn that it wasn’t designed for the 3DS in the first place, and the closeness of the port actually makes the game more enjoyable than the Wii version, for the most part.' (3DS, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D) 8/10
