Crazy Credits

The credits roll over what happens to the Kongs after they defeat K. Rool. If you complete the game with 100% (and the 201st Golden Banana), you will get two extra scenes at the end: one with the Kongs on top of K. Lumsy swimming away, and auditions for the game. See more »

DK is back and better than ever!
11 June 2004 | by (Clayton) – See all my reviews

Ook Ook! Aah aah ahh! Ook eek aaahhh eek ooh. Eek eek ook ook ahh ahh ahh ook eek. Eek aah ook ooh eek ooh eek ahh? Eeep eek ook aah aah ook. Eek ook ahh (feces throw). Ook ook Donkey Kong! Eek eek! (Translation: Hey everybody reading my review! IL' stiffdogg is here with a review on Donkey Kong! This monkey melee of an adventure game for the Nintendo 64 is DK's first frolic in 3D, and I hope he has many more. It seems King K. Rool, the demented doofus and king of the Kremlings has returned to blast the DK Islands, and DK, Diddy Kong, Tiny Kong (related to Dixie Kong), Lanky Kong (Unknown Relation), and Chunky Kong (related to Kiddie Kong) are the only monkeys who can foil the foul fiend. DK familiars will recognize Cranky, Funky (what the heck is a Donkey-Dude?) and Candy, but does anyone recall Wrinkly Kong (died in Donkey Kong Country 3)? Anyway, this game is definitely worth playing, with its hilarious moves (check out Lanky's Baboon Balloon!), a multi-player battle royale, and a strange finale you won't stop laughing at. DK has never looked better. Viva la Donkey Kong! Try this game at least!)
