There is no question about the Nintendo Wii, and the appeal it has brought to so many gamers everywhere. With the success of Wii smashes like Super Mario Galaxy, Wii Sports and Excitebots: Trick Racing, gamers are finding new ways to have fun. But, Nintendo has also brought that into play with the Gamecube games as well. Many gamers have either easily forgotten how great these titles were then and didn't get that chance, or just chhose other game systems like the Playstation 2 or original Xbox or Xbox 360 titles. Surprisingly, many Wii owners have also forgotten that the Wii does play Gamecube titles as well like Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker and Luigi's Mansion too. But, Nintendo has decided recently to re-release some of these Gamecube greats' with new play controls. They've done that with Mario Power Tennis recently, and now with another Gamecube classic that simply says the DK beat is back.

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.

Nintendo has come along way with this product. Its enjoyable and addicting. In the beginning you might question why they incoporated a screen shot suggesting that if you are tired take a break. After about thirty minutes of playing this game, you'll want to take a break and rest a bit. Not to fear though, if you like the quest aspect, you will be anxious to get the controls back into your hands. I am definitely impressed and feel that Nintendo is on track with raising the heartrate. Yeah Nintendo, kudos.

We love this game! I remember playing Donkey Kong from my childhood and bought it at Christmas when we purchased our Wii. I purchased the new Super Mario Brothers, another throwback to my childhood, and have barely played it compared to the amount of time I have spent playing this game. My 3 year old asks me to play it just so he can see the "bad guys" and cheers me on the whole game. With the wii controls, you will also break a sweat playing this game. Worth every penny, the only drawback, its a one player game.

I have watched my daughter play this game many times. While it seems more complicated than the classic I grew up with, she loves it! The graphics are great in addition to the vivid movement of Donkey Kong. I think people of all ages would enjoy playing this but I would definitely say age 7 and up would enjoy it the most. Give it a try, I think you will like it!

I had been wanting this game after I saw it on the gameCube, but I didn't get it because of the drums needed. I bought because of the new Wii controls game. I would give it 5 stars, if not for the clunky controls. DK is hard to move around and sometimes when sharp turns are required, he won't turn quickly and it is annoying. Also the screen backs up to far sometimes and makes DK too small to see. The game starts off close up and nice and big, but then zooms out?! It's not short, don't listen to people saying it is. There are over 50 levels, but not all are unlocked at first, and they are hard to unlock them all. I have not unlocked them all, and I still have the main boss fight left to do. You need to collect as many bananas as you can in each level, then when you are done all the bananas are tallied up and you see if you got a crest or not, crests are needed to unlock all levels or get 100% on the game. The graphics are decent. The boss fights are beatable, however may take you a long time! There are little tutorials inbetween each level that show you secrets and how to do various things in the levels to get bananas if you didn't find every single banana in a level. Overall, it's worth a try if you like Donkey Kong and platformers.

This game is a mix between Wii Fit and a regular Donkey Kong game. You must shake the Wiimote in certain situations to win the objective.

PROS
* good exercise
* good clean fun
* motion control
* after-goal minigames of collecting bananas (shaking controllers as quickly as you can)
* great graphics for 480p

CONS
* 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.
