    With its choice multiplayer extras in tow, this has to be considered one of the best SP games of all time. [Jan 2005, p.86]
  2. Luckily, the level design is fantastic, making every repeat through a level bearable, as many sections are just fun. Who doesn't love getting launched out of a barrel into the sky to swing from post to post while grabbing bananas only to land in a mine cart which travels the worst kept track in existence? Everything flows beautifully.
  3. The graphics, while suffering a slight sacrifice in the parallax shading, are nevertheless incredible for the GBA.

    The challenges, environments, and cast of baddies are varied enough to prevent this game from ever seeming tedious. And, when you reach the final destination on a level, the amusing victory dance makes it all seem worthwhile.

    The Donkey Kong Country series is better known for its graphics than its gameplay, but even still the game's level designs offer up more than the "routine."
  6. Even though it's almost ten years old it's still a brilliant platformer.

    Playing DKC 2 is the equivalent of going to a restaurant and only ordering the appetizer. Sure, it's something to eat but you're missing out on the filet Minot by chewing on cheese-covered tacos.

    un gran juego de la snes que supo superar a su precuela con pura creatividad y llevando las cosas al siguiente nivel
    este juego posee todo lo del anterior y con mejoras sustanciales, por ejemplo los jefes esta vez son todo muy bueno y retadores, los niveles son aun mas variados y creativos, didi kong es sin duda un plus que solo hizo el juego mas divertido y dando mas posibilidades, y los animales que ayudan a los protagonistas son mas divertidos que los anteriores.
    otra cosa a mencionar es que la dificultad aumento un poco pero no llega a ser imposible, personalmente no tengo nada malo que decir de este juego es pura diversión y asombro.

    Like any of my other GBA reviews, it is really meant for the SNES version of this game, which is what I had and played. Don't get me wrong itLike any of my other GBA reviews, it is really meant for the SNES version of this game, which is what I had and played. Don't get me wrong it is the same game, I just want it known I played the SNES version. I loved the Donkey Kong Country series, some of the best 3D platforming around. My favorite game of the series is the second one, for some reason its world is the funnest to hammer out and get all the extra goodies. As a kid I just loved this game, couldn't put it down. Nintendo did a great job with music and creating worlds that felt alive. This game is also challenging and can be done co-op with another friend, which is one great feature. Expand

Incredibly creative with almost each level9.4 - Towards the end of the game, it gets very difficult, but makes it all the more memorable. Incredibly creative with almost each level having completely new concepts never introduced in the first one. Soundtrack is also amazing, and controls are even better than the first. Expand

Call it gorilla Kong is you must, but don't lie to us like this. Jesus himself rode in on a donkey, so don't tell me they aren't worthy of their own game, I was promised a game about a donkey, living in his own country. Instead I got whatever this is supposed to be. Expand
