5.0 out of 5 stars A classic game -- one of the best ever! June 12, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before this game came out in the 90's I remember seeing a video about it. I knew I had to have it, and bought it immediately upon release. The graphics were absolutely stunning, and are even pretty good by today's standards. The storyline was great and the characters instant classics. And so when I got my Wii one of the first things I did was download this game--one of the best I've ever played in over 20 years of gaming.

Needless to say this excellent game has stood the test of time. It is side-scrolling--pre 3-D--but that is one of the game's strengths in my opinion. There are some incredibly difficult levels (the mine cars are very tough), but the game is not impossible to beat and provides just enough challenge to really absorb you in it. Control is fairly simple but another plus--you don't need a whole slew of button combos to master this game, just some dexterity and practice.

I would recommend this game either on the Super NES or as a virtual game for the Wii. Whereas some older games are good just for their nostalgia factor, DK Country is certainly one that can be played and enjoyed even 13 or so years after it's original release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Nintendo's last breath September 4, 2003
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES
When someone insults a next-generation video game's graphics with something like, "It could have easily been done on SNES," she or he may not remember Donkey Kong Country. Even on on X-Box, GameCube, PS2, or that Phantom thingy, the graphics on this baby are no insult. The CG resolution is crystal-clear and the animation in unparalelled. The rain fits perfectly and the transition of weather is flawless. The music isn't bad either . . . it's great, from Funky Kong's theme and the water stages to Candy's lovable romance beat and the final battle with King K. Rool. Both graphics and sound really push the SNES to its limits.
As for the gameplay, that's great too. The difficulty can challenge and even frustrate you, but you'll be coming back for more. If I have to say anything bad about the game, Dixie Kong is not here yet and there are no digitized voices. There are grunts and cries, but no actual words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donky Kong rules! October 18, 2002
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES
Who would've thought that the Donkey Kong series which started out as an "ape throwing barrels at people" game would turn into a full scale, 5 star, action/adventure extravaganza??? Donkey Country had it all. Flawless, clean and sometimes breath taking graphics and effects to complement the endless arrays of level by level challenge and outstanding game play.
The many bonus levels intrigued you and challenged you to be your best. The animal companions gave you an extra incentive to play because the Swordfish, the Rhino and the Frog made it that much better and that much fun.
The other thing that really revolutionized action/adventure type games was Donky Kong Country's boards and levels because none were exactly the same. Each board had it's individual quirks and perks and each board gave you that needed challenge that other action/adventure type games lacked at the time.
You could not put this game down. Me, personally, after 8 months after this game's release, I was still playing it because it was still that good (that and I was determined to play a perfect game and clear all the boards including the bonus levels).
This was the first installment of the newly revived series and it was a MUST NEED and still is. I would definately recommend this series to anyone and for those of us Triple Crowners (own the PS2, X-Box and Gamecube), I would definately stop all of the other games I was doing when the next installment of the Donky Kong series came to the home system. But for now, get this one and play the hell out of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars It Don't Get Much Better Than This July 26, 2001
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES
When rumours of new 32-bit consoles were becoming a reality many fans began to forget about the Snes, that was of course until the release of `Donkey Kong Country'. A game so ahead of it's time that at it's first E3 showing many reporters mistook it for a N64 game.
With a revolutionary graphics engine and fantastic gameplay to boot, `Dkc' took the gaming world by storm and indeed acted as the final nail in the Megadrives coffin. Also notable is that this was the first `Big hit' from gaming giants Rare who would follow with the classics `Goldeneye' and `Perfect Dark'.
Another important point is that this game `is' completely without flaws, the rendering is perfect and the games music is one of the best soundtracks ever recorded. In technical retrospect `Dkc' is a 2d sidescroller with a 3d graphics overhaul, in English any fan of platformers should not be without this inspirational classic.
`Donkey Kong Country' was also the largest ever cartridge at the time carrying a massive (at the time) 32mb, and `til this very day the game remains a classic. If you still have a Snes or your a retro gaming fan like myself you should pick this up as soon as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first game I ever played! October 18, 2004
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember playing this. I had a lot of fun with it. It saved Nintendo, really it did!

Graphics:11/10: It set the SNES to its limits. Crystal clear 3D images. Great rain and water.

Sound:10/10: Great sound. The monkey's grunts sound pretty good.

Music:10/10: Jungle music that is very catchy.

Gameplay:9/10: Although not as good as the other 2, it's fun.Play as Donkey or Diddy and romp through many worlds. You can also ride on animal buddies, too.

I suggest you to get this!
