News Hit: Donkey Kong Country is back. This revitalised two-dimensional side scrolling game sets the standard for the genre, just like the original Donkey Kong Country game did back in 1994. The developers, Retro Studios, should be commended for their work on the series. It has successfully re-interpreted a classic, keeping nostalgia in check while still making a very fun game. If you think of this title as a strict remake, you will be bitterly disappointed - consider it a re-invention that takes the franchise forward, but still maintains the soul of the original series.
