the best donkey kong adventure game

  • 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: 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: Donkey Kong country on the SNES was one of one favourite so I had high hopes for it's N64 debut. To be honest I was a little disappointed when I started playing it as it is very similar to Banjo-Kazooie, which is not bad thing but I was expecting something a bit different. You start off as Donkey Kong and work your way from then. On the first level you set Diddy free to join you and then free more of the Kongs as you go along.

  • Excerpt: Donkey Kong 64 is Donkey Kongs first outing on the N64 and is a platform game much in the mould of the Donkey Kong Country series on the SNES. The game is a 3D platforming game which is very similar to RARE's previous 3D platformer Banjo Kazooie. The game is pretty good and has superb graphics (well superb for the N64 anyway) but still doesn't have what it takes to be better than Mario 64 which is still the best 3D platformer by a mile.

  • Excerpt: After a long wait I finally got it.(See my gameplay review for a fuller explantion.)And I'm currently really enjoying it.Obvioulsy not right at this minute but you know what I mean. It's not startlingly original but it is a lot of fun.To start you can only control Donkey but as you get furthur into the game you can control more of the kong clan.Eventually you have five of them at your disposal all with different moves,musical instruments and guns.

  • Excerpt: Donkey Kong 64 has probably the best graphics of any N64 game so far. But there are other things that makes this game a must have, such as the Jet Force Gemini and Banjo-Kazooie type of game (platform). Although I love this game, there are some draw backs like the sometimes annoying music. One reason I like it is the extreme difficulty due to the vast amount of fun mini games and the gigantic bosses.

  • Excerpt: If one developer has kept the N64's head above water during troubling times for the console, it's Rare. They've been responsible for what is arguably the best game on the system in GoldenEye, while other titles like Diddy Kong Racing and Banjo-Kazooie have offered a different class to most other releases, Ninty's own titles not withstanding. Now they've returned with Donkey Kong 64, a game firmly in the mould of the classic Mario 64 and Rare's own Banjo-Kazooie.

  • Summary: Efter att ha utvecklat tre fantastiska Donkey Kong Country-spel till SNES så var det dags för aporna att ta steget in i 3D. Efter att ha spelat Banjo-Kazooie känns det dock inte alls lika fräscht. För när allt kommer omkring känns det ibland som ett Banjo-Kazooie med andra karaktärer. Många banor känner man ofta igen sig i. Upplägget är även det samma.
