Donkey Kong Country 2

  • Excerpt: All these years later, the banner game in the Donkey Kong arsenal goes down better than ever. With its choice multiplayer extras in tow, this has to be considered one of the best SP games of all time. Back when Rare was the lord of 16-bit, they saw clear to have their lead ape kidnapped, courtesy of Kaptain K.

  • Summary: "See, you're back again! Everybody likes old Cranky. I bet my ugly old wife doesn't get half as many visits!
  • Pros: An entirely new, tough boss!, Cranky Kong is as bitter as ever., Mini-games and photo collecting are nice additions., No toned-down difficulty!
  • Cons: Graphics and sound aren't as good as the SNES version., Occasional slowdown when a lot of enemies are on-screen.

  • Conclusion: Following in the tradition of SNES to GBA remakes, comes Donkey Kong Country 2. Just like the SNES version the main characters in this one are Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong. The last Donkey Kong Country, while a faithful port, was simply just a port. The only saving grace was that the original DKC graphics were groundbreaking for that time so it still is respectable today.

  • Conclusion: Wo Donkey Kong Country in puncto Features aufgehört hat, setzt der zweite Teil an und bietet ein ähnlich beeindruckendes Bild: Drei Speicherslots, zahlreiche Bonus-Spiele inkl. Sprint-Modus, ein (wenn auch etwas langwieriger) Co-Op Modus und natürlich nicht zuletzt ein Multiplayer-Modus für bis zu 4 Spieler runden das gelunge Bild ab.Wenn schon ein Remake, dann bitte auch ein vernünftiges Spiel.

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddys Kong Quest

nintendo-lan.de
28 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddys Kong Quest steht seinem Vorgänger in nichts nach und hat einiges verbessert. Die Grafik ist spitze, der Sound lädt zum mitgrooven ein. Anfänger dürften bei dem hohen Schwierigkeitsgrad erst mal schlucken, für Kenner und Könner ist es aber eine Freude. Wer das Original für das SNES nicht besitzt, kann beruhigt zugreifen. Die 8€ sind auf jeden Fall gut investiert.
