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.

Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (Wii)

PC Magazine
21 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Even without its trademark bongo controller, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat is still fun, and at this price it's a great deal.
  • Pros: Fun, fast-paced action. Inexpensive. New levels. The action isn't the same old thing on every level; game play actually changes markedly from one level to the next.
  • Cons: No bongos! The game is pretty easy to beat and doesn't seem worth the effort to try to max out the points.

11 June 2009
  • Conclusion: If you never caught the original, then this is almost a must-have. It's stuffed with charm and clever ideas like the score-maxing hint sections displayed upon level-completion. In fact, this is classic platforming with the added bonus of individuality and innovation.
