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.
Excerpt: There's no question that Donkey Kong Country 2 improves upon its predecessor in numerous ways. Diddy and his new partner, Dixie, have a few new abilities, including a team-up attack, which give players so much more to do. There are minigames all over the place that provide frequent breaks from the regular run-and-jump levels, and the graphics and music are richer and livelier than they were in the first Donkey Kong Country.
Pros: Diverse run-and-jump design, So fun to run wild with animal friends, Takes a while to clear 52 levels, Teeming with bonus games
Cons: Intense difficulty will discourage some players
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.
