Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze - Where "Going Bananas" is Encouraged

Tropical Freeze was my first Donkey Kong Country game (I played Donkey Kong Land 3 on Game Boy Advance), though I’m quite familiar with the character through Smash Bros. and Mario Party, as well as the arcade original, which actually starred Cranky Kong as the villain, the original DK. Well, technically the villain was Jumpman, aka Mario, as the manual explains he abused DK, and DK took his girlfriend and smashed barrels around his house. Eventually his descendant became great friends with Mario and gang, and regularly races karts and plays soccer against them. This is the DK that stars in this game. I’m aware, however, that this is the first game to star Cranky Kong as a playable character, as he originally was just a shopkeep, though that role has been filled by Funky Kong for this game. Cranky is a particularly helpful character to have on your back, as he bounces himself and DK on a pogo-cane, which makes for some good platforming fun, and can kill most enemies that even DK has trouble defeating. (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Wii U) 8/10
