Did You Know?


While bug testing the final release developers at Rare encountered a game breaking bug when playing without the expansion pack, however the bug disappeared whenever the expansion pack was plugged in. Programmers could not locate the cause of the bug in time, so instead of delaying the game, Rare simply listed the expansion pack as a requirement to play. See more »

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 »

This game is great. It has great game play and replay value, always going back to try and get that 101%!!! Anyway it has great music, especially in fungi forest and crystal caverns and it also is fairly difficult to collect all 200 bananas. Or is it 201? You will find out if you try and complete the game in every possible way. This game has good graphics and will keep you going for hours and hours. It also has two bonus games: THe original donkey Kong and if you get 15 banana medals, the classic "Jetpac" game. Overall this is a great game. I would put it up (not quite as high) with Zelda 64 (best game ever made) and Super Mario 64. This game also features Donkey and Diddy, Tiny who you can tell is related to Dixie (the hair twirl move you get later)Lanky, a fairly random clown of a orangutan and last of all Chunky, who appears to be related to Kiddy. Big, chunky, and STROG AS HECK!!!
