Much like all the other Donkey Kong games that before it, our beloved ape finds his bananas stolen by an evil Tiki Tribe who have brainwashed the entire island’s animals. The plot is meaningless however provides a good reason for you to be exploring the world.
Donkey Kong Country Returns is visually spectacular. The look and feel of this extremely colourful game looks vibrant on the 3DS screen. Playing this game brought back a lot of memories from my childhood SNES days and it really surprised me with how true the developers made the game to the original. The 3D effect is really good and works well into the games mechanics which sees you traversing through the foreground and background. I didn’t notice any visual downgrade from the original Wii version. Whilst the FPS is locked at 30FPS, I didn’t notice it enough to dampen the experience. The classic Donkey Kong music and sound effects took me back and was a treat to listen to.
