  1. This is a pick-up-and-play game in its purest form, albeit with a uniquely tropical control set-up that hasn’t been utilised anywhere else before, sans its neglected prequel.
  2. If I was wearing a hat, I'd doff it to the DS development team at Nintendo, who for me can do no wrong... or rather I would, except that I need both hands to control DK, so maybe it's best that I'm not wearing one. This is though, another definite winner from the big N.

    Maybe the most underrated game on the DS.

    I had a TON of fun with this game. It is one of these games that just feels great when you play
    it. You just want to jump and climb from wall to wall because it simply feels great.

    I can recommend it with confidence for anyone who wants to try a different kind of gameplay.

    8 out of 10.
