  1. Menus aren't quite so easy to navigate as they were previously but then that's only because there's so much more to do now and as trade-offs go, this is one we're quite happy to abide. [JPN Import]
  2. If you didn't notice already, this means that there were not only no Nintendo songs, but there were no children songs, either.
  3. It is evident that Nintendo has made the effort to make this game more appealing towards the general public with more hip and modern music then the original.

    The single-player modes are really lacking, which is really astounding since the multiplayer is so much fun.
  5. The gameplay itself-though uninteresting-is still intuitive and responsive.
  6. The basics of the original remain intact – clap, slap and bang the bongos.
  7. 25
    The game is just plain sloppy, and smacks of being rushed out the door to capitalize on Donkey Konga's popularity before it was too late.
