5.0 out of 5 stars My son LOVES this game! June 14, 2005
Edition:with Bongos
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son spotted this game and the bongos at Toys R Us and started playing. I had a hard time getting him out of the store! He cried like crazy.(he just turned 5 and usually doesn't do that)I told him we'd go back and play again someday. Well, he kept bugging me and my husband everyday to PLEASE take him up there to play it.

(We have a Super NES that was mine and we have Donkey Kong 1,2,and 3 that he constantly plays, so he is familar with it)

So, I bought a game cube 2nd hand for 45 bucks and bought the game/Bongo combo at Toys R Us. He has played it ever since we got home (4 hours now) with no sign of slowing down. I'm sure it will keep him happy for a long time.

This game actually gives your arms a workout with all of the drum beating and clapping. I also can be in the other room and know "what he is up to" as long as I hear the drums beating, LOL. I'm glad I bought this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun as all get out September 19, 2005
Edition:with Bongos
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Who'd have thought that bongos (and clapping) would be a good interface for a platformer? Not me. I played this in a store and was hooked pretty quickly.

The interface is great - multiple taps on the left bongo to go left, right to go right, and both at once to jump, along with a few other combos. You clap which makes DK clap, which sends out sound waves in a certain radius that can affect other things.

So simple, yet so good. The multipliers with the fruits are a great device -- run over a banana and it counts as one, run over 5 and they count as 5, but jump into the perfect position to clap and collect them all at once and you can score 20.

So I'm clapping and banging on the drums and it's a total blast, and I realize I'm actually working up a sweat playing the game. And like most Nintendo first-party games, the gameplay is near perfectly solid, the gameplay is set up in that toally addictive Nintendo style where you don't want to stop.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very fun action platformer from Nintendo. March 28, 2005
Edition:with Bongos
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I eagerly purchased Donkey Kong Jungle Beat with the Bongos as soon as it was released. After a few minutes of tinkering with the bongo based controls, I found myself happily adventuring through another great Donkey Kong title. As strange as playing a Donkey Kong Country style game with bongos sounds, controlling Mr. Kong is a fairly intuitive and very fun experience. With a rhythmic tap to the right bongo the character runs to the right. With a tap to the left bongo, Donkey Kong runs to the left. Hit both bongos simultaneously and he leaps into the air. Hit both bongos while in the air and Donkey Kong will quickly slam to the ground. Add a clap or a tap to the side of the bongos and a shock wave radiates from Donkey Kong, which stuns enemies, allows Donkey Kong to grab any near by bananas, or causes Donkey Kong to swing from the hands of friendly monkeys hidden in cleverly placed floating bushes.

Even if it does take you a bit longer than others to become comfortable playing a videogame with a set of bongos, the game is very forgiving for the first few levels. The level system in place uses barrels as worlds. Each barrel that you unlock holds four levels named after various fruits. A level will include two sub levels and a boss encounter. The sub levels end when you bite into an over sized fruit at the end of the level. Once you bite into the fruit, Donkey Kong enters the fruit and collects as many beats as you can quickly beat on the bongos in a period of five to ten seconds.

The boss encounters range anywhere between a boxing match with a fellow primate, to a pineapple throwing contest with a robotic elephant with a cannon for a trunk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dance to the Jungle Beat March 17, 2005
Edition:with Bongos
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So we've entered a whole new genre of game play. One that throws out the hand-held controller and replaces it with...BONGOS. I first heard Nintendo was making this game and laughed about it. Well, my mind was changed once I played the game. No, this isn't a game with an in-depth story, or any story for that matter. No, it's not a difficult game you will spend hours upon hours before defeating. This game is one thing and one thing only, fun. And you will have fun playing it, I promise you that. It takes a bit to get used to this Bongo style of game control, but how original.

If you're looking for a game that you can lock yourself up in your room and not return for a few days until you have defeated it, look elsewhere. But, if you're looking for a game that you and all your friends (if you have any) can pull out for a good laugh and a few hours of fun. This game will deffinitely accomplish that much. As I said before, this game isn't difficult...game play wise, but it does take some skill and coordination.

I will warn those who will play though, this game requires a lot of clapping that makes your hands sore, and at points you are to hit the bongos as fast as you can, which will make your shoulders and arms very tired. Needless to say it is all worth it. One other thing, this game is quite beautiful graphically and has some very well done levels and environments.

So go ahead, try something new, play the bongos, play donkey kong, laugh, play, live, and most of all, don't be so skeptical about these silly new gaming ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bang that drum!
For the price it's an entertaining game, but as you progress gets a bit tough. Good game for kids to work out some of that frustration safely.

We got this whole package from Amazon for $19.99. That included the game and the bongos. It is a very fun game (a tad childish, but still fun).
