  1. A competent action role-playing game and a decent movie tie-in.
  2. The game is fairly entertaining, but doesn't set any new standards in the industry. It simply feels like the developers tried to make a halfway decent game that uses the Kong name to sell a higher number of copies.
  3. Kong for the GBA isn't as "King" as it should be. Instead we're treated to a 16-bit era inspired action adventure game that is based on a classic movie.
  4. There's nothing really more to the game other than an occasional comic book style still between levels. Unless you're the most diehard of Kong fan, there's not much that's going to hold your interest past your first session with the game.
  5. 50
    Instead of delivering a total experience, Kong feels more like the developers decided to throw together two half-finished games and hope for the best. The end result is an average experience.
  6. The big problem is that, while everything works, it's tedious, dull, and lacking any sort of excitement that the console game is supposed to have.
