If you enjoyed Donkey Kong Country on the SNES then you'll love this. It's a similar, updated and tweeked version of the classic with improved graphics, better game play and much more to do. The story is similar and as you go through the 8 different worlds, all of which have 6 levels, a boss and a bonus level, you'll have to improve your skill and gather hundreds of bananas, KONG letters and puzzle pieces and to add to the vastness of the game, it has a time challenge for each level.
The improvement not only comes in the form of graphics but moves and added upgrades such as riding barrells through the sky. It's a complexed yet enjoyable game that brings back Rambi the Rhino and mine karts.
I've not played Mario Galaxy 2 yet (which i hear is awesome) but in my opinion, this game has everything and it's huge. Plenty of hours of fun ahead of you. Nostalgic yet new. Go ahead, you will not be disappointed.
