I have read the 5 reviews on this installment of the almost-classic SNES game, "Dixie Kong's Double Trouble," and the reviews are kind of discouraging. That's why I want to vindicate the reason this game came with its flaws.

The Game Boy Advance has almost miraculously resurrected Super Nintendo games like Final Fantasy and Super Mario. The ubiquitous flaw with the transfer is the audio, and the usual tweaks in the storyline. Well, I for one would appreciate the fact that new features are added...they somewhat endeavor to make up for the loss in audio capabilities and graphics. One can only do so much on the GBA. I read the review of this game on gamespot, and that's what I'll base this review on.

The music was no rehashed from the SNES to the GBA because the latter has very limited space for the soundtracks. While some tracks from the previous game, including the Frosty Frolics and the Hot Pursuit tracks (remember the song in the race levels? that tune was fantastic). And unfortunately many of the tracks are replayed on too many occasions, whereas the original SNES had a track for everything it seemed. But some of the songs are a lot better on occasion, and I personally enjoyed the background of the songs where birds tweet and the breeze blows (it is so convincingly realistic, especially in the Enchanted River levels, where two tracks are listenable--that's pretty cool, no?) Now that I tired the music factor out, I'll list the pros and cons of this version of the game.

Strengths:

Pacifica is a nice addition to the game, although most would think it's just made to make you busy looking for bonus barrels and DK Coins. Highlights are the pier level (which is at night), the sunken tree level, and the water level.

First of all, I'd like to say that overall, the SNES version of this game is what I'd recommend; while it was a pretty good decision to make DKC3 available for the GBA. it still does not live up to its SNES twin's expectations.

First of all, the plot is the same as SNES: DK and Diddy were kidnapped by K.Rool and it's your job to save them. So I won't go into the story. The controls, music, and sound are what really bother me.

The controls: well, I played this game on the DS. Its controls on the DS are maddening; when I expect to run, I jump. When I try to use Dixie's hair whip, I jump instead. Although DS' control layout is different from the GBA's, it is not the system at fault; it's the game. After all, on the back of the game box, it says only for DS and GBA; you'd think that Rareware would try to make the controls suit both systems. But instead, it takes around ten minutes to beat each level as you are struggling with the silly control layout.

The music. YIKES. Try the winter level on the first world; what the heck, are there drunk monks singing in the background? On the SNES version, the music was great; it played along with the level's surroundings and whatnot. in this game, it is as if the music is meant for 3-year-olds. It is too happy. Even on the gloomiest of levels, music remains happy and friendly. The overworld music is the only piece I remotely enjoy listening to.

The sound effects are really annoying. Those kremlings that hop on their tails...those sound effects make me want to mute the game. The sliding kremlings on the winter levels...thew sound is so out of place. All the sound effects are so lame and goofy, again--is this game meant for toddlers or what?

Overall, the game was an okay transfer from one system to another--but I would recommend the SNES version over the GBA one anyday.

While it isn't quite up there with its two predecessors, Donkey Kong Country 3 is one of the best games ever, and it's also all sorts of difficult. Just like the first two, there will be moments where you just want to give up, but there will always be something pushing you forward, telling you that you can do it and you just have to try harder. It's not easy, but boy oh boy is it fun!

I just love the game. It takes me back to my childhood years playin it on Super Nentendo. But even though the game is great to play. There is deffinatly something wrong with that particular cartridge. It wont let me advance to other levels and just takes me back to the beginning where I have to start all over again. So I am very unsatisfied about getting a deffective cartridge.

...The Super NES Version is better.

Gameplay 2/5-/- It's a little more complicated. not much more to say

Music 3/5-/- They took out the original stuff [that got a 2 disc soundtrack] and put new stuff in. It's okay and all but, the other stuff is better.

Graphics 3/50-/- We all know that Gameboy graphics aren't as good as the SNES, but they did they're best.

Overall 3/5-/- eh, I don't like it that much.

I really liked this one, however, I think that the second one in the series is the best one. Collecting everything in this one was easier than Donkey Kong Country 2, but there was more to this one when it came to all of the well hidden secrets in this one. Most of the boss battles were pretty easy but there were more worlds and secrets in this one.
