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

  • Excerpt: As readers will have seen from our recent reviews of Pikmins one and two, New Play Control games on the Wii present a dilemma for the humble games critic. Knowing that many people have played the original game in the days of the GameCube, you basically have to do two reviews; one for those that have played it before, and one for those of you that have yet to come across the game.
