Did You Know?


The game is one of the few game to require the optional Nintendo 64 Expansion Pack to play: fearing that to many parents would buy this as a Christmas present while forgetting to buy the expansion pack, Nintendo made the unusual move of only selling the game with the pack included. This caused some level of controversy as the expansion pack had been available for at least a year prior to the games introduction, and the bundle of the game + the expansion pack cost more than a stand alone N64 title.

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!)
