Donkey Kong Country 1, 2 & 3

  • Summary: As a whole the three games, in my opinion are good. The first one being the best and the second two being; just, okay. After completing the first game I had a craving for more and was slightly let down by the two games that followed. I think it was on account of the introduction of Dixie Kong and the lack of Donkey Kong. I don't know exactly what it is about that character, but Dixie really killed the sequels for me.

  • Summary: its a gift. not for me. I assume the recipient of the gift will thoroughly enjoy. I myself am not a big video game player but she insisted on getting the nintendo console with donkey kong, in fact the only game she wanted was this one. I do not want to write a review but i guess ebay is making me.

DONKEY KONG YAY X's 3

greenpurpleredblue, Ebay
3 December 2008
  • Summary: These games are a pact full of awesomness. Why shouldn't it? WHEN IT HAS THE MOST FUN CARTOON APES EVER. The levels are challenging in all three yet, easy at the same time. Some parts you need patience and to have your eye open to get all of the secrets ,and coins. I haven't even found all the DK huge coins yet. BUT! The coins you mostly have to worry about is in DK 2 with Diddy and Dixxie. You need to collect the yellow or gold colored coins with 2 or 3???

27 November 2006
  • Summary: Pros + DK's first adventure. + Fun platformer action with some things thrown in like using animals for transportation Swiss Family Robinson style. + Big boss battles & a variety of different jungle levels. + 3D rendered graphics Cons - Repetitive gameplay as far as playing as DK & Diddy goes. - Banana collecting not as fun as coin collecting in Mario Bros. - No multiplayer element during the adventure Comments This is the game that inspired the Kong trilogy.

DK Returns to the Country

SirJoseph, Ciao
6 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The Super Nintendo cult classic.. While a graphical breakthrough at the time, its still crystal clear, with simple graphics that made it so successful. Its not just the graphics that made the game though, the music made a massive contribution too with a soundtrack of over 20 different themes for the menus, minigames and levels.
  • Pros: Classic, Music, Levels, Mini Games, Environments
  • Cons: Dated

  • Excerpt: Donkey Kong had only previously been known as the damsel-kidnapping ape in the 1981 video game of the same name. However, 1994 marked the release of Donkey Kong Country, a game which allowed this hulking ape to take on the protagonist role. Released by Rare on the Super Nintendo, Donkey Kong Country allowed gamers to play through 40 side-scrolling platforming levels.
  • Pros: Great graphics for it's time, enjoyable game play, great to play with a friend .
  • Cons: A little too challenging for some .

The banana mission!

dangaroo, Ciao
16 April 2011
  • 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. The graphics at the time brought a sort of shiny look to the game, it's still very much a 2D game but it's almost given an extra dimension by this gloss, even though it's a simple screen to screen platform game.
  • Pros: Great fun factor
  • Cons: Turbo mode is a bit insane

Donkey Kong Country

  • Summary: Donkey kong country was released in 2000, and was a port of the highly successful SNES game of the same name. In Donkey Kong country , Kong and Diddy are on a journey to claim back their bannana's from their main enemies King Rool and the Kremlings. For those of you who dont know , King Rool is a crocodile who is a little on the large side and the Kremlings are the small crocodiles whom work on his behalf, a little like Goomba's and Bowser in Mario.
