Donkey Kong Country

Reviewed by Brad Herr ZERO The entire Donkey Kong Country series is great, perhaps the best of all time but over all, the first has got to be, not only the best of the series, but my favorite video game of all time. I think the plot is a good one and the secrets that game holds are awesome.

Graphics 20 out of 20

There is nowhere I could possibly stop here. The graphics most likely pioneered the way for many of the great games we have today. Unlike it's following two games, DKC is a game that really stands out among the rest. The other two are great, but have a more cartoony look to them. DKC is a game that really looks....great. This game is just so good there's no way to put other than great.

Music and Sound 10 out of 10

The sweet music of two primates running around, jumping on the heads of alligators and dodging huge bees. This music is so cool, I hooked my TV up to my dads stereo, and accessed the music test mode, and made a recording to listen to in the car. As for the sound, it may not sound exactly like a monkey screaming, but the Kongs aren't your average monkeys now, are they?

Game Challenge 5 out of 5

I'd have to give this category a low possible # because there are no difficulty settings. It is very hard in some spots, but then it works vice-versa. My little brother and I are different in that, I am absolutely great at this game, and he basically is the worst player I have ever come across. But working together, we were able to beat the game in less than three hours.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

This game is very fun to play, merely because of all the things above. You got to figure, with perfect scores in all of the above, this game has to be fun. And it is. Another thing that makes it quite fun is the levels. They are very complex, and after you've finished one, you can go back and explore for minor details that you missed before.

Frustration

This game can get very frustrating, because the levels are very long. Making it to the end and dying is not much fun at all, but then dying never is, is it?

Replayability 10 out of 10

This is a very great game indeed. You may even find yourself doing older levels while you're still playing to beat it! Like I said above you can go back and look for minor details, like in the background, or you can explore somewhere you never have. Let me warn you will probably die by exploring over the side of a cliff.

Game Value 10 out of 10

I got DKC the month it came out, so I don't know how much it goes for, but I can guarantee, if it's under 70 bucks, it's worth it.

Complexity 10 out of 10

This is a very complex game, but it ends when you least expect it to. Going back and finding bonuses is almost impossible without a players guide.

Overall 75 out of 75

My conclusion is the same as above. This game blows your mind and all other video games right out of the water. Great game, period.
