One of the best handheld games of 1995 gets a great sequel in 1996. As in the 16-bit version, DKC2 introduces Diddy's gal pal Dixie, who uses her helicopter whirl to bash familiar Donkey Kong enemies. The 42 stages of side-scrolling action, hidden areas, bouncy music and exceptional Game Boy graphics make this the best handheld game of the year.

Rare hat es sich offensichtlich den ersten Teil ganz genau angesehen und dabei den einen oder anderen vermeidbaren Schwachpunkt erkannt. Darauf lieferten sie mit Donkey Kong Land 2 ein sehr solides Jump&Run ab, das aufgrund seines durchdachten Leveldesigns und der vortrefflichen Spielbarkeit auch längerfristig motiviert.

There are tons of great Nintendo produced titles available for the little portable. Donkey Kong Land 2 easily melds with the lot. Even though the game is filled to the brim with all kinds of familiarity, I still have no reservations about highly recommending this great little platformer. Nintendo does this kind of game better than anyone else in the world (take another bow, Mr. Miyamoto) and that's about as persuasive as I should have to get. This ape fest is a gas. Grab it.

Portable Review
What are you waiting for? If you’ve played the original Donkey Kong Countries and not the ‘Land’ games, then you’re completely missing out. They’re not the same game exactly, and they’re fun and portable. This game is must for anyone’s collection. Trying to explain how good the game is just doesn’t do it justice. Play it and see for yourself.

Nintendo bzw. Rare liefern wie gewohnt Qualitätsarbeit ab, die keinen gravierenden Schwachpunkt aufweist. Das Leveldesign spielt sich so präzise wie ein Uhrwerk und läßt in puncto Abwechslung ohnehin die meisten Konkurrenten alt aussehen. Auch die technischen Hardwarevoraussetzungen wurden optimal genutzt. Die Render-Grafiken verblüffen durch den hohen Grad an Detailreichtum und die Musikuntermalung bietet schöne, bisweilen sogar raffinierte Melodien, statt nervigem Gepiepse. Man sollte allerdings einen Super Game Boy oder den Game Boy Pocket sein Eigen nennen, denn auf dem Handheld-Oldie verwischen die Grafiken leicht, wodurch die Übersichtlichkeit (und die Augen) etwas leidet. Alle Gelegenheitsspieler sollten sich zudem im klaren sein, daß DKL 2 einen harten Jump ‘n Run-Brocken darstellt. Vor allem der Umstand, daß normales Abspeichern Geld kostet dürfte nicht jedermann schmecken.

Donkey Kong Land 2 is a classic platformer. Although you can purchase the more complex Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2 for your GBA these days, this game still merits a purchase of its bargain price tag eBay. It is hindered by the GB hardware, but nevertheless provides an extremely amusing adventure marred only by the annoying save system. Had the save system been more accessible, this game would have been much closer to perfect.
