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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: He's back,bigger and better than ever. I bought this game on the advice of opinions that I'd read on dooyoo. I have to say that they were all right, it's brilliant. The game is bigger with more levels and characters, these beingDK, Diddy,Tiny, Chunky and Lanky(Chunky 's my favourite).
Excerpt: Damn straight, Donkey Kong is here and this amazing conversion from the Snes rules. The added feature of them 4 extra characters (3 who are new) and loads of levels, this game will keep you glued to the N64 for months.
Excerpt: Donkey Kong 64 (DK64) is big. It is undoubtedly the biggest game ever to appear on the N64 and its sheer size makes an 4 MB RAM expansion pack essential. The game just will not work without it.
Excerpt: Rare spared no expense recreating Kong for the third dimension. A huge quest, intuitive controls, deep mechanics, mini-games, relentless exploration, five different characters to play with and knockout graphics. Players begin as Donkey, acquiring basic moves in a training level.
Excerpt: I find it hard to believe that a lot of people didn't think that "Donkey Kong 64" deserved all the hype that it got. It's one of the best 3D action/adventure games for the Nintendo 64 and I didn't see anything bad about it.
