Summary

A tribe of mysterious marauders has put some sort of musical spell on the creatures of Donkey Kong Island, and now they’re stealing every banana in sight! Naturally, this doesn't sit too well with Donkey Kong, whose personal banana hoard has been ransacked.

With his pint-sized pal Diddy Kong on his shoulders, Donkey Kong sets out to get to the bottom of this bewildering banana burglary.

But the bottom line with Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is that the positives undoubtedly outweigh the negatives. With its visual splendor and gratifying, old-school gameplay, this is a fantastic platformer that makes the most of the 3DS. It may test your patience from time to time, but the satisfaction of conquering every last bonus barrel and KONG letter is ultimately worth it.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D may be a port less than three years after its original, but it has a new burst of life on Nintendo's handheld. The 3D effect has arguably never been better used in a platformer on the system.

The game looks noticeably muddier on the 3DS screen, and occasional slowdown often appears at the worst moments. To be fair, though, neither of these complaints ruin the experience, and Nintendo fans would be wise to pick up Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D even if they own the console edition, as it's equally fun to play on the go.
