Donkey Kong Country Returns is a tough cookie

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Behind the cute exterior of many Nintendo games lays something altogether more sinister. The general rule for the company’s top franchises is that the further you get, the more sadistically unforgiving the game becomes. This year’s return of a barrel-throwing ape in Donkey Kong Country Returns is no exception to the rule as the latest ‘eruption trailer’ shows. I can vouch for such a difficulty as one Nintendo rep told me at the game’s showing in London earlier this year that I was the only person to have completed the demo. Initially I grinned in a rather smug fashion but have to admit, it took me a good few goes. So the Wii is just for kids eh? Try Donkey Kong Country Returns first…
