Summary: Adventure - 1 Player Where do I start? This game is HUGE, and by no means over hyped, the graphics on this game are absolutly amazing, the attention to detail that only Rare spot, as seen before in Banjo-Kazooie is once again present in this Rare Masterpiece. Although not quite as Unique as Banjo-Kazooie, the game boasts 5 playable charachters: DK, Diddy, Lanky, Tiny and CHUNKY, with more in the multiplayer mode. The main storyline to the game is that K.
Donkey Kong 64 (N64): Jungle-themed boredom from £59.99.
5 September 2000
Summary: Donkey Kong hit the market on December 3rd, and many gamers rushed out to buy it after the mastery of Banjo Kazooie. Most were disappointed. Despite the N64 mags lashing out praise just because it’s a Rare game, I know several people who have the game and have got bored with it after a day or two.
Pros: Neat features such as Battle mode, five characters.
Cons: Boring, requires Expansion Pak, repetitive, levels too large.
Donkey Kong 64 (N64): Donkey Kong - Haven't I seen this somewhere before?
Simply Me!, Dooyoo
20 August 2000
Summary: This game is the follow on to Donkey Kong on the SNES, which I enjoyed. The problem with this one is the fact it is none different from any of the other other platform games which have already been bought out, such as Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie. Infact this game is so much like Banjo Kazooie, if it wasn't for the different characters, the two games would be the same. The levels and over all background is in the same cartoony fashon as Banjo Kazooie.
Pros: Good game play and good range of characters.
Donkey Kong 64 (N64): Even the mighty Rare can't better Miyamoto
30 July 2000
Summary: Ever since 1995 people have been trying to out-Mario Mario in the 3D platformer stakes, but it has never come off. From 'Crash Bandicoot' to 'Banjo-Kazooie' and 'Sonic Adventure' to 'Rayman', no one has ever made a platformer better than 'Super Mario 64'. 'Donkey Kong 64' is the latest challenger and it has been speculated and anticipated ever since the launch of the N64 in the mid-nineties.
Pros: Looks good, reasonable gameplay
Cons: Too much stuff to collect, level layout is confusing, rubbish multiplayer
Summary: This version of DKC doesn't feel like the older version on the SNES. For starters the game is too repetitive since you have to complete each level with all 5 characters to really finish the game. The controls take a while to get used to and there aren't many puzzles in the game. Really, you just explore a lot because the worlds are so huge. All that said, the graphics are excellent but I'm afraid this game doesn't live up to its expectations.
Pros: Excellent graphics, fun for a while.
Cons: Repetitive, difficult controls, not much to do.
