I like my Xbox just fine. I like Call of Duty; I enjoyed Red Dead Redemption. But for my money, the most purely enjoyable video game of the last year features the most misunderstood hero of the Nintendo-verse: Donkey Kong.

The reformed kidnapper is back (along with his nephew Diddy) in an attempt to recover stolen bananas from what seem to be a band of enchanted ā€” and extremely stoned ā€” musical instruments. What could be better than that!? DKCR is one of the more challenging Wii platformers, and it’s been keeping me so busy Iā€™m not even that interested in L.A. Noire.
