New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat Review

Cheat Code Central
22 July 2009
  • Conclusion: If you never got a chance to check out the original DKJB, then you should definitely play NPC! DKJB. However, longtime fans of the bongo smashing original may have issues adjusting to this new version, or may even find that they miss their old peripherals while playing. For me, though, I think the change in controls is for the best and should allow a much wider audience to check out and enjoy this masterful title.

Test Donkey Kong Jungle Beat

Generation NT
7 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Il faut bien admettre que Donkey Kong Jungle Beat dispose de quelques points négatifs assez rédhibitoires et il est fort probable que les joueurs de la première version ne cherchent pas à revivre cette courte aventure sur Wii. Trop court et trop facile, voilà comment le qualifieront les plus réfractaires. Mais malgré tout, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat séduit, amuse et passionne.
  • Pros: L'ambiance, Le gameplay dynamique et addictif, Les mises en scène pleines d'humour, Diversité des environnements
  • Cons: Durée de vie bien trop courte, Manque de variété des boss, Peu de challenge, Trop facile

Donkey Kong Jungle Beat

  • Excerpt: There’s a schism in the ideology behind the GameCube’s Donkey Kong Jungle Beat . It was either a brilliant, innovative experiment on how to control a platformer, or it was a desperate attempt to cash in on the gimmicky bongo controllers for fans that had already eagerly devoured Donkey Konga and its sequel, and were looking for their next rhythmically-inclined meal.
