The Donkey Kong Country (DKC) video game series is a series of platform video games originally developed by Rare and later Retro Studios, and published by Nintendo.
DKC was critically praised for its groundbreaking graphics.
Donkey Kong Country is a popular game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that was released in 1994. The game is credited with bringing back the Donkey Kong character, as well as starting a new franchise entirely based around new characters and gameplay.
With its audience drained first by Sega's Genesis and, then, by Sony's brand-new PlayStation, Nintendo needed a blockbuster game to grab gamers' attention again. Donkey Kong Country was it. Donkey Kong Country saved the Super.
DKC2 is an amazing game with a stand-out score. The game introduced Dixie Kong as a playable character.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest is the sequel to the original Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo, and the predecessor to Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. It takes place shortly after Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong's triumph over King K. Rool in the previous game.
The sequel to Rare's spectacular hit Donkey Kong Country was an inevitability. DKC2: Diddy's Kong Quest more than delivers in its ambitious aim of equaling and sometimes exceeding the standard set by its predecessor.
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! is the third game for the popular Super Nintendo Entertainment System game series Donkey Kong Country. The game stars Dixie Kong and her little cousin Kiddy Kong as they travel through the numerous lands of the Northern Kremisphere in order to rescue Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong from the Kremling Krew and their new leader, KAOS.
But even if that was the case for most loyal Nintendo players around 11 years ago, this concluding chapter in the SNES series was still missed by many, passed over because of its release date. Donkey Kong Country 3 first hit store shelves in November of 1996, over two months after the hardware debut of the next Nintendo system, the N64.
Donkey Kong Country Returns is the fourth game in the Donkey Kong Country series. It is the sequel to Donkey Kong Country 3 and it is also the first Country-line game in over a decade. Donkey Kong Country Returns is a 2D platformer developed by Retro Studios for the Wii, and was announced at E3 2010. It uses many of the familiar elements from the original games and Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are once again the main playable characters.
The backlog of amazing Nintendo games is one of many reasons why gamers continue to back the company's consoles. Donkey Kong Country Returns is yet another fantastic visit to the company's catalogue of amazing game designs. Other than the brutal difficulty – which many will (and rightfully should) see as a positive – there's very little to complain about in Donkey Kong Country Returns.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is the fifth game in the Donkey Kong Country series. This game takes place on Donkey Kong's birthday, coinciding the fact that this is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Donkey Kong Country.
Tropical Freeze gives us 13 hours’ worth of lush jungles and exotic islands to explore, and DK and his friends have never looked better. Their furry pelts look great on the TV or the GamePad, and some of the character models have lots of tiny details -- right down to the age lines around Cranky Kong’s mouth and his perfect teeth.
