    As fun a time as you can have on a video game console. The combo/scoring system is deep and will have you up all night playing one more game to nail a higher score. The replay is endless, the game is gorgeous, and the controls are intuitive and hella fun.

    No flaws, no dull or none-enjoyable moments, innovation, great graphics, good replay value (it's not like 3 hours), good sound and a lot of variation. Buy now.

    The Length is a little bit of a problem, but the medals are fun to collect because you actually get something for them Unlike Assault. Awesome Graphics, tons of fun, Love those BONGOS!

    This was a pretty fun game though i've been, overall, disappointed with GC games, this was quite entertaining. The graphis weren't bad and the congos are just cool. Also, there is just so much time you can spend on this game since there are 40 some levels to unlock. Definitely a good game.

    An absolute blast from start to finish. Great graphics great fun GREAT GAME. As with most Nintendo games not too tough to initilally clear but quite hard to get all golds on every level. The levels are varied and keep your interest the first game to keep me up past midnight for months.

    Jungle Beat was never going to be a bad game but the innovative control scheme and the deep combo-mechanic have elevated it to a genuinely excellent one.
  2. A very polished, well made game that breaks new ground in platforming; I highly recommend this game for anyone seeking a change from the traditional platformer or anyone who doesn't have a great interest in video games to begin with.
  3. Jungle Beat may be the only game to make good use of the bongos, but it does one hell of a job.
