A fantastaic game and revival of a fantastic series. The multiplayer is welcome, the design is amazing, and the gameplay is finetuned. Better than 1 and 3, but due to the lack of character differences, specifically the lack of Dixie, the game suffers.

It stands up well with the first three games from a design perspective. Other issues hold it back to the point where it is my least favorite of them. http://jshgaming.com/blog/?p=422

Had interesting designs and clever level designs. Was overarchingly an altered and alternate Donkey Kong installment, in the series. Had great controls and was more puzzle-focused. Scores pretty well at 8.5 for me. (Liked and swayed with Donkey Kong Country 1-2-3)

More than any other development team, Retro Studios makes me excited about the future of gaming. While it feels like the core gameplay principles at the heart of other Nintendo franchises are slowly becoming diluted (for the worse), Retro (who were new to the franchise, remember) mastered what made the DKC games great and then bumped everything up to the next level, as you might hope would happen from one console generation to the next. A true torch-bearer of gaming brilliance, I can't wait to see what they develop next.

Retro Studios can do no wrong. After revolutionizing the Metroid series with the Prime Trilogy, they went on to revive Donkey Kong Country in this 2D sidescroller. And, holy crap, did they make it fantastic. From gorgeous sunset levels to brutally difficult boss battles, everything is pitch-perfect. I can't wait to see what this amazing Texas studio does next.

really overlooked, this game is one of the best in recent years, and is just simple fun. The challenge is just enough so that you'll rage at the tv but love every second of it. i wish gaming was more like this today, instead of half-baked shooters being poured out every month. This game proves that Nintendo's still on top.

Retro has done it again. While I do feel kinda sad that Retro seems to have become just a studio who revives old Nintendo franchises, when they do as good a job as with DKCR & the Metroid Primes, I don't mind too much.

i put this up here past donkey kong country is because i felt it has better level design, much deeper game_play and the effort to detail in this game is just brilliant.
