I am 40...been there for Atari, Arcades, Intelivision, Atari 5200, ColecoVision, Commodore 64, NES, snes, ps1, PS2, PS3. This game is perfect throwback to 2d scrollers. It looks great, co-op 2 players with piggy back has my wife hooked! This is no small feat! Hours and hour of MW2, God of War etc. & she's finally playing. Much more engaging than the "shovelling" of bowling. The game is very challenging! Might be a keeper!

Just finished playing through the entire game and wow I must say what a game this is. Incredibly challenging, this game never lost my interest. At times I got so frustrated I wanted to throw my controller but I can honestly say I was never bored once during this game. This is by far the most challenging Donkey Kong game I have ever played and in my opinion the best one made as well. The only complaint I really had about this game is co-op mode. This game was not meant to be played by two people at once. I;m sure plenty of you who read this will disagree but if you play through it by yourself and then try and play it with another person, you will find how much more of a challenge it really is. My biggest suggestion to any of you who play this game, is don't play with a 7 year old. You will die 15 times on every single level, at least. Sometimes even upwards of 50 times. But other then that this game is pretty much perfect. The stand alone wii controller was a little testy at times, rolling me off a platform when i was trying to pound or blowing when i was trying to roll but frequent checkpoints help make that not such a huge problem. Overall, one excellent Wii title.

It starts off a little slow but picks up by about world 3, me and my sister (17 and 21) had a lot of fun, but its not something you should be expecting your 8 year old to play with you, unless its Asian, because this is a really, really hard game.
