Gran Turismo 5

Hooked Gamers
7 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Even if you are not a fan of the series, Gran Turismo 5 provides a racing experience like no other. The new features added in the game definitely give a boost for the game, and graphics that can at times look so real it feels like you are actually there only add to this. One of the most capable racing experiences to date.

DK Jungle Climber

The Gamers Temple
18 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Historically, gamers fear and distrust change almost as much as politicians. Think about any game sequel or franchise that has dared to try something new. Remember the hysteria over Metroid going 3D? Or the griping over any Starfox game that wasn't a carbon copy of Starfox 64? Or the meltdown fans would have if the next Final Fantasy game doesn't star an effeminate anti-hero with a clichéd past? All joking aside, gamers hate change.

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a classic feeling Donkey Kong game that emulates some of the Country atmosphere then Jungle Climber may be what you're looking for. It's the quasi-sequel to King of Swing but really it's more of a revisit to the original obscure title. The L and R buttons translate well to the swinging mechanics and many creative points were added to expand upon that idea.

DK Jungle Climber Review

GameSpot
12 September 2007
  • Excerpt: The monkey called Donkey returns to the Nintendo DS in DK Jungle Climber, which comes with the lush, prerendered look of the Donkey Kong Country games, but without the traditional platforming gameplay. Instead, you'll flex DK's upper-body strength by climbing and swinging your way across a series of acrobatic levels fraught with enemies and pitfalls.
  • Pros: Simple, unique control scheme, Enthusiastic visuals, Well-balanced difficulty, So many bananas
  • Cons: Donkey Kong comes off as uncharacteristically delicate

Gamer vision
12 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Name: DK Jungle Climber Genre: Side Scrolling Adventure System: Nintendo DS The new generation hasn’t been good to Donkey Kong. It seems with every game that comes out the otherwise intelligible ape has been numbed down into Nintendo’s very own stupid brute. Color me old fashioned but didn’t he always come off as the smart but misunderstood type?
