The original Donkey Kong Country was an incredibly difficult side-scrolling platformer, and the latest installment of the series takes great joy in continuing that tradition. Death and danger are omnipresent and making it through a level unscathed is an accomplishment. Brutal is the first word that comes to mind—so much so that, should you die more than 8 times in a level, the game will offer to take over for you. If that doesn’t add insult to injury, then we know what you can do with one of those bananas.
