Nintendo Universe writes: American-based gaming magazine Game Informer has provided the first review of upcoming jungle romp Donkey Kong Country Returns within their December issue, awarding the title a particularly noteworthy 9.5.
Retrostudious says, "Hi" :P
Haha, I'm interested with what Rare would've done with their franchises if they still had the rights though. Want to see Donkey Kong 64 on Virtual Console :(
This is definitely my most anticipated Wii game. I was always a Donkey Kong Country boy, and it seems that Retro Studios(as always!) hasn't dissapointed us :D
Damn I remember playing the original DKC for hours on the N64. I'm going to buy this for old time's sake. That and the game actually looks pretty damn promising.
donkey kong is nintendo franchise
Getting this next Sunday. Can't wait!!! :)
Retro is the new Rare !
& This time seriously....With sum Killer Titles... Gotta Luv this franchise......1 of my fav. Old Schools!
SO EXCITED! I'm seriously getting a Wii with my next paycheck JUST to play DKC:R!!! :) I love Donkey Kong Country!
Considering the original DKC was my favorite game growing up on the SNES,I expect this to blow me away too :D
and who said the Wii doesnt have good software?
it does, but 2 games dont warrant buying an SD console.
Nobody said it didn't have ANY. It's just the ratio of good software vs bad software is ridiculous. Come on, there's a game coming out called Babysitting mama.
Oh yea, cause we all no that a Wii owner is FORCED to by the bad software, right?
This will be awesome! I don't remember I was so excited about any other game in recent years.
They've always been pretty suspect.
While I'm very excited about DKCR and expect great things from Retro, I have to agree. Game Informer is just not a trustworthy source for reviews, particularly of Wii games.
I do trust Retro Studios! :)
my full HD TV whispire in my ears ..."its on the wiiiiiii" in a creepy voice
exactly. Im waiting for the Wii 2 and its BC to make to play the Wii games in upscaled HD. I dont care as long as it has that extra layer of eye candy. Hopefully Nintendo makes them for download via Wii Channel.
Too bad. Go play gears, halo, cod, me or gta if you choose graphics over gameplay.
... and that signal is coming from u. a servant to the GROL eh? added u to ignorelist.
For the record, there are ways to play Wii games in full HD. It seems like most people around here don't actually care enough about HD to actually find that out, though. Shame, really.
I'll go ape crazy
Nintendo just seems to be able to capture the essence of platformers so well.
Sonic 4 and now donkey kong country for us old school 2d gamers. Thank goodness. I just beat metroid other m and now another great piece for the wii.
I loved the old Donkey Kong games, this one looked great but I didn't want to get too excited, now it's good to see the franchise is back and looking better then ever. Cant wait to get it.
Sigh. Almost makes me want to go out and buy a Wii. Almost. I miss games like DK and Kirby but my PS3 needs more love. Too many games coming for it to spend money on a Wii. Ah well.
If GAMEINFORMER gives a Wii game a 9.5 AND Game of the Month, you know it has to be good.
Noobs on n4g cant handle a Wii game getting a good score. They did the same when Halo: Reach got a good score. Its amazing when Games that arent ps3 exclusive get good scores Gameinformer are totally reliable, but when halo or some other console exclusive(or even a multiplat!) get a good score Gameinformer is suspect. Give me a break. They do the same with IGN btw
as usually they berate a wii game due to controls only.
i havnt seen any P3 exclusives in months,you just trolling my guy DK
No, I am being sincere. I am not trying to say PS3 has better games or anything. I really do miss games like DK and Kirby but I can't afford to buy a Wii and buy games for my PS3 at the same time.i have to practically scrap the money together for LBP2 next year. I would love to buy a Wii to play some of my childhood favorites but unlike some people I have to choose only one system. i loved all the DKs and Kirbys too and wish that will bring Epic Mickey for the Move. What is wrong with you people? Here I am trying to say what I feel and you attack me and pile me with disagrees.Talk about being oversensitive. When did it become okay to attack someone with out warrant?
and got an advance copy on Ellen along with a wii. a whole week early. the one person on Gamefaqs that has a copy got suspended for spoilers so yeah that sucks, i wanted to now alot.
So when can I go buy this?
the 21st iirc. the original release date of the 1st one. its on a sunday.
Going back to the 90s!
D.K. DESERVE A 9/10 CAUSE IT'S THE BEST DAMN WII GAME YET. I remember playing hours hours of D.K. on the SNES best game ever played.
