I loved this one even better
12 December 2001 | by (Oberlin, OH) – See all my reviews

Many people have said this game rocks but falls a little short of the first. I disagree on the latter part. Original DKC was far better than most games, yet it gave me the impression of an old-style game updated and showing off the capabilities. This time they put extra effort into improving from there. No more Candy Kong kisses while you gather giant plantains.

You might miss working with the big guy, but that sure doesn't ruin the fun. Dixie Kong is cool in her own regard, making a swell teammate for Diddy. The enemies' pirate theme lends organization while keeping the game cracked enough for amusement. The scenery is easy on the eyes and the music is simply superb. And yes, the gameplay advanced as well.

If DKC is salt, then DKC 2 is sugar. Both delicious, but I know which I prefer.
