Nearly 25 years ago, Donkey Kong Country was released to the world, and it quickly won over gamers with its pre-rendered CGI graphics, became one of the best-selling Super NES games of all time, and spawned numerous sequels. And while its graphics might not have the wow factor they had in 1994, Donkey Kong Country's gameplay holds up to this day.

While Donkey Kong Country is known for being difficult, many people have mastered it. Are you one of them? Donkey Kong Country - Expert Edition will put your platforming skills to the test. It removes the DK Barrels (which give you your characters back if you lose them) and Star Barrels (which act as checkpoints), so you can only take two hits in each stage before losing a life and being forced to start over from the beginning.

Additionally, all the Warp Barrels have been removed. If you think you're just going to skip over Mine Cart Carnage, Stop & Go Station, or any other stage in the game, think again.

Would be more interested if all the bosses not reptilian took twice as many hits. Very Gnawty is satisfying to beat up, but he only takes five hits.
