Very Good But Difficult Game
30 July 2006 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Rated E.

I own the Game Boy Color Version of Donkey Kong Country.I first played the game at my friends house and I liked it a lot.The first game I got for my Game Boy Color was Pokemon Silver Version.This was the second game I got.I hardly play my Game Boy Color anymore but I do sometimes.Donkey Kong is my favorite character in the Mario series.Whenever there is a Mario game like Diddy Kong Racing or Super Smash Bros where you can choose your character I always choose Donkey Kong.I don't know why but he is my favorite character.I remember when I was in Grade 1 my favorite show was the animated Donkey Kong Country which played on teletoon.Donkey Kong Country the game was very fun but hard.Sure all the levels in the first stage were easy but after that it got harder.Stage 2 level 15 was extremely hard and I had to get a friend to beat it for me.As of now I am on a level in Stage 3 but I stopped playing it because it was too hard.Donkey Kong Country was a really fun game though with pretty good graphics for the gameboy and fun gameplay.You can choose between Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong and you basically jump on baddies and collect different things like bananas.If you find Donkey Kong Country play it! You wont regret it!
