Trivia

Famed game designer and the original conciever of the character Donkey Kong, Shigeru Miyamoto had said in an interview "Donkey Kong Country proves that players will put up with mediocre gameplay as long as the art is good." Miyamoto later recanted his statement blaming the pressure placed on him during the development of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (1995) to make it look like Donkey Kong Country. Miyamoto had worked closely with Rare in the development of the Donkey Kong Country game. See more »

Quotes

Cranky Kong (Text Narration): [after Donkey and Diddy defeat King K. Rool] Well done, Donkey, my boy! Who would've thought a young whippersnapper like you could've beaten that bunch of no-good Kremlings? You've made an old man proud! Go and look in your hoard; I think you'll be in for a surprise! If I had been playing, I'd have found everything! I'm sure there must be some bonus rooms you haven't found!

Donkey Kong Country!
8 December 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Donkey Kong series is one of the most different adventure video games! The characters, the action, and the sure thrill of adventure makes this game a fun non-stop playing time! Below is a brief look how I think the game is!

Game Play: The game play is very good. There is really basic controls here and is easy to perform. Novice gamers should have a good time here!

Graphics: The graphics are wonderful especially for the Super Nintendo system. The backgrounds are really beautiful!

Difficulty: The game is easy but as it goes on you find out that it will become more difficult!

Music: The music is great! Just fantastic catchy tunes through out the game! In My opinion its some of the best music ever in a video game!

Sound: The sound is great. Nuff said!

Overall: I have always loved Donkey Kong Country! If you like excellent adventure up games then I strongly recommend you play this game!
