Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, one of Nintendo's most classic and entertaining classic from the Nintendo Gamecube era, has returned for the Wii. The classic platformer really was a huge winner with the use of the classic DK bongo controllers from the Gamecube that came with the Gamecube edition, which were not just fun, they brought more of a rhythm to Donkey Kong's audiences. The platforming game has been beautifully remastered, as you control Donkey Kong across many different kingdoms, collecting bunches of bananas, and trying to battle foes like furious mastadons, who shot laser shots through their trunks, and Kong bosses that you'd have to box for the title like the Sumo Kong, and killer buzzards shooting bombs at you from the sky.
The control here however takes a whole lot to get used to this time.Read more ›
* good exercise
* good clean fun
* motion control
* after-goal minigames of collecting bananas (shaking controllers as quickly as you can)
* great graphics for 480p
* sweating while playing a game (although some parents may disagree)
* defeating bosses were tedious and detracted from the game
* catching fruit during boss battles
* catching fruit and then having Kong throw the fruit the wrong way during boss battles
Conclusion: I feel this could have been a 5 star game, but the boss battles depended so much on timing. The bosses can be defeated once you learn how(I watched walk-through videos on youtube).
This game however does provide a great way to get kids moving by clapping and waggling, and uses the Wiimote and nunchuck masterfully.
