Summary

Terrific! A Masterpiece!

The Good

This game had the best graphics for a SNES game ever. Seriously, Super Mario World times 10. Plus the music was as good, if not better, than Super Mario World. Seriously. And it's extremely funny, too, and there are lots of enemies. You have to use strategy and decide whether to use Donkey Kong or Diddy King, cause for some parts of some levels you have to use Diddy cause he jumps higher/further. And seriously, The swimming levels are so much better than Super Mario World and everyone wants to ride a Swordfish, Rhino or Ostrich, and swinging on the ropes, the rain, everything looks so realistic, you almost forget your playing a SNES and think your playing a N64! And the level with the mining cart, come on, everyone liked that level and the snow it so realistic looking!

The Bad

The bosses were really easy, except King K. Rool. It gets frustrating when you die.

The Bottom Line

If you don't have it I have two words for you: get it.
