Quick thoughts on Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

I'm re-entering the world of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS. Here are some thoughts on the game.

This is a quality port of the popular 2010 Wii title that brought back the joys of the Donkey Kong Country games from the 1990s. Gone are the waggle controls that annoyed many. DKCR 3D controls only with the handheld's buttons, and they work great.

The visuals do take a small hit, though. The crisp, 60-frames-per-second graphics from the Wii version are not here, but you won't really notice it when playing in the foreground. When Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong get blasted into background areas, you'll notice some graininess.
