Reviewed by Clint Donkey Kong Country, the original, was truly incredible. Made by one of the best, if not the best, game company ever, Rare. This game had incredible graphics, sound, and humor for its time.

Graphics 9 out of 10

For the time once again, this game was truly breath-taking. Perfect coloration with nice shadowing (which resemble Killer Instinct) and great animation for characters. What would you expect? I mean, it's Rare. Killer Instinct, Cruisn' USA, Goldeneye, they all have above average graphics.

Music and Sound 9 out of 10

Once again, DKC really excels in a category. One of the very few games I actually considered buying the theme music CD. The songs in the game are fantastic. Very few games I have played actually do a good job on music usage, but this one does real well.

Game Challenge 5 out of 10

Challenge was decent. Not too impossible though. In fact, this game came out a few weeks before my birthday and I asked for it, however I couldn't wait that long and rented it one Saturday. By that afternoon, I was watching the credits. I have known a few people who took a lot longer to finish the game though. Also, finding all of the secrets can be a grueling task and that is why it deserves a 5 and not a 2.

Game Play-Fun 7 out of 10

This game should be at least tried if not bought by every Nintendo gamer. It really exercised what the Super Nintendo was capable of. Just try it and you will pleasantly surprised.

Frustration

You will come across a few levels, especially the ones with pin point jumps, where you will die over and over and over again. This is extremely frustrating, but, you will eventually overcome it.

Replayability 5 out of 10

The awe-inspiring effects of the game will only impress you once. Compared with new N64 games, I hardly ever find myself even looking at this game. But, since it was such an incredible game, a lot of people probably still enjoy it.

Game Value 8 out of 10

I have not idea what they are charging for this game now days. I say if you can find it for about $30 and you haven't even tried it, go for it!

Ending 8 out of 10

I always play through the games for one reason, to see the endings. DKC had a very nice one. This is where the majority of the humor is. It also has a nice little fight between the two main characters which is fun to watch. This is one of the rare (catch the pun) game endings I remember.

Overall 8 out of 10

Haven't played it yet? WHO ARE YOU!? TRY IT!!!
