A beautifully constructed game

The Good

Great graphics made it a joy to just look around. You had much freedom. For example, you had the ability to choose between Donkey Kong, Diddy, Tiny, Lanky, or Chunky. Also, there were many massive worlds, bonuses (more about them later), and games. Bonuses included: shooting games, brawling matches, and animal contests (these let you become Enguarde or Rambi). The boss battles were the most exciting of any game.

The Bad

There was too much collecting of items (at times). It could have been more challenging. The game was a little too long.

The Bottom Line

A three-dimensional but better "Donkey Kong Country".
