Summary

My favorite game of all time.

The Good

This game always had great graphics. Even today on a 50 inch screen tv it still is amazing. I really loved the scenery. It always seemed real. The music was great too. This game really showed what the SNES could do better than the genesis at the time. Being my favorite game for the graphics, scenery, and game play, this game is great and can be enjoyed over and over.

The Bad

There wasn't many things I didn't like about this game. If there was anything it would be not being able to save after each level. The candy kong save points weren't really that far apart, but some of the harder levels placed before a save point or a funky flights left you with few lives to get though more levels to the save point.

The Bottom Line

This is a really fun game with incredible scenery. The game play is great not being to hard but hard enough. The music is better than most games at the time and so were the graphics. I recommend everyone should buy this.
