Critical Gamer: Donkey Kong Country Returns at Eurogamer Expo 2010

Critical Gamer writes: Have a fumble round Nintendo’s pitch and there’s lots of classics being flogged. Sonic & Mario are having another sporty hoe down, GoldenEye’s doing its four way split screen thing, Kirby’s got a new co-op platformer to show off (and it looks pretty good too), and good old Donkey Kong’s back in town.

The first one was a bit special, don’t you think? A beautiful looking game with graphics that got even the Sega fan boys wowing – I know because I was one of them. This time Donkey Kong doesn’t have that same wow factor, but it still looks smooth as Sade’s operator. It’s a really short level to try out, a jungle one, not anything you’ll see on these screenshots here, so dream about it or look for a vid. So Donkey and Diddy gambol their way along the level, jumping on this and that, smashing things up, getting shot out of barrels – you remember how this goes. (Donkey Kong Country Returns, Wii)

Looks a lot like the original, which is no bad thing.

Can it match up to the originals, back when Rare were still good?
scruffy_bear  +   1954d ago
I think it will

Retro is quickly becoming the new Rare in my opinion.
