Excerpt: This is one of the "biggest" games I have ever played in terms of how long it takes to finish it. It´s so well thought through and like any good adventure game, you sometimes need to go back on yourself to be able to go forward. This time around it´s not only Donkey and Diddy that´s about, we got 3 new monkeys to play. The first girl in the kong family, Tiny, then the long-armed Lanky and then last but definitely not least Chunky.
A really good game, remember that you need an expansion pak, that bumps the price tag up loads.

Excerpt: The best game to compare DK64 with is probably Super Mario 64. So we'll do that. Graphics: Well graphics-wise, DK64 is definitely better than SM64, mainly due to the fact that its a few years newer, and as the game requires the N64 Expansion Pak, it adds the capability to produce much higher quality textures, as well as the general game resolution. DK64 also features realistic lighting and shading, as opposed to the fixed shadows and lighting in SM64.
Excerpt: *A review of Donkey Kong 64 for the N64 which primarily focuses on the single-player experience.* King K. Rool is on the verge of destroying the Kong Isle with his Blast-o-Matic, when it fails. Thankfully, his underlings have a plan in which they capture the Kongs and their Golden Bananas, so that if the Kongs escape they'll not do so without their bananas, hence buying them time to fix up the Blast-o-Matic. Cranky's right kids - the story is a load of rubbish!
Excerpt: I first played this game at my friend's house and even with our combined gaming skills we still haven't managed to complete it yet. There is a lot to do on this game, which means you get many hours of playing time out of it. One of the first things I noticed about this game was it's similarities to Banjo-Kazooie as they were both made by Rare. This was because I'd played Banjo-Kazooie first. The music is very similar, and some of the characters look alike eg.
Excerpt: This is by far one of the best N64 games Nintendo has to offer. The SNES version kicked off pretty well, and after that, well...there's not one person who doesn't know who the big DK is. This game is so full of stuff I'm surprised it all fit into that little cartridge!! You have all these worlds of ice and jungles and pyramids and haunted castles and wrecked ships lying in rainy bays...I mean, come ON, what more do you need?!
Excerpt: King krool has ape-napped again and you have to save all of donkey kongs freinds.You have reclaim all of the giant golden bananasand save the island from distruction. Take out the kremlins with each of the kongs special moves and there special guns. This game seems endless in the begining but once you have worked your way through it it gets easier onece you have master the moves.
Excerpt: Rareware have produced an incredible amount of really good games in the past and Donkey Kong 64 is definitely the best of the lot. This game is very close to what is known as the PERFECT game; amazing graphics; remarkable gameplay; cool kongs; great sound; and the best multiplayer mode ever. Unlike all DK games in the past, this game is quite different. King K.
Excerpt: Donkey Kong 64 is arguably the best platformer on the N64 and as the 64 is the console that has the greatest ever platformers on it that is one great praise. Donkey Kong pits you (once again) against the evil King K. Rool. You play as 5 cool Kong’s of course 2 of them are Donkey and Diddy but this game introduces you to pony tail twirling, Tiny, Super strong and funny, Chunky and tall long armed and utterly freaky, Lanky.
Excerpt: If there is one game that Rare should be proud of its this. It is the only platform game that is better than Mario and once you have played it you will see why. It has around 10 levels (I don?t know the exact amount, as I haven?t completed it yet) and a total of 7 characters that you can be. The controls are very easy to handle and the graphics are astounding. The website is amazing and can be accessed by going to the official Nintendo site first.
