  • Excerpt: The previously evil Donkey Kong got a platform game of his own in 1994 and this time round he was a likeable character with his young side-kick Diddy Kong to help. I've always enjoyed games made by Rare and this one is no exception.
  • Pros: Great fun factor
  • Cons: Turbo mode is a bit insane

  • Excerpt: And so it's come to this, a series of reviews about games released on the Wii's Virtual Console. First up, is the so-far, Europe exclusive Donkey Kong Country. Donkey Kong, like Mario, is one of Nintendo's flagship characters, and you'd expect it to be of a high quality.
  • Pros: Beautiful for it's day, great gameplay
  • Cons: Super Mario World is better

  • Summary: Donkey Kong Country is a great GBA Platformer. You play through many levels with the opportunity to switch between Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. The controls are easy to get to grips with and are the same as many platformers, although the graphics aren't too much to shout about.

  • Pros: Great fun to play the first time through/ 2  players can play
  • Cons: On an outdated console/ Can get annoying
