Now, I'm sure you're wondering how playing a video game can quote unquote "help" you. A few years ago I picked up a copy of the original Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo at the same store but when I played through it something felt a bit off. I just wasn't enjoying myself to the point I did when I played the game when I was younger. I wasn't sure if the problem was me or if it was the game... all I knew was I was going to have to play another game in the franchise (as a point of reference) to find out. Fast forward a few years when I got around to this and well, I had a blast. After completing Donkey Kong Land III I played a few more games like Donkey Kong Country 2 on the GameBoy Advance and the original Donkey Kong Land and those only solidified the weird fact that I don't like the first SNES game for some reason. Unfortunate (and bizarre) as that is I'm glad the whole series hasn't shared its fate.
Since I've finished this game I've played the other two Land games and while the original Land is good despite its problems (2 is oddly disappointing for some reason...) I feel this is the strongest of the GameBoy games and considering how little it costs to procure this is just an excellent game to add to anyone's collection. However, as good as Donkey Kong Land III is - and how rewarding the unlockable time trial mode is - the sad fact is many people have completely forgotten about the Land series.Read more ›
I enjoyed the levels in this game and it is a very large game for Gameboy standards. The game took me about 5 hours to complete 100% and there are almost as many levels in this game as the original.
The controls play perfectly. I never had any problem with the controls since they are identical to the SNES game except Kiddy doesn't have the water skip.
The secrets are much harder to find than the other Donkey Kong Land games, but not impossible. I got stuck only in 3 levels. The water levels are not fun because to find those secrets you need to run into every wall on all four sides to make sure you don't miss a hidden opening. It wears on your thumbs really bad but luckily there aren't many water levels.The secrets are cleverly hidden sometimes but other times the only way to find them is to jump down a hole that would otherwise kill you and they do this a lot. Doesn't seem fair but after beating a level, you can jump down a hole and pause and exit the level before dying if nothing was there.
If you get all the secrets you get the usual Lost World but if you get all the secrets from those you get something new, trial runs. These trial runs are punishing and are almost as hard to get as those in Donkey Kong Country Returns. To win you have to be perfect and attack enemies every chance you get to get a short boost of speed. The hardest is the water level because the only way to win that one is to know the secret shortcut barrel.
Overall, the game is fun and long. You can enjoy the game for hours, especially if you try to find all the secrets.Read more ›

I love Donkey Kong games to pieces but this one was disappointing as it broke after 2 days of its arrival. I love the game, but not the service.Published on May 17, 2014 by RH

Thought that the first Donkey Kong Land was pretty bad..? The third Donkey Kong Land game will make all of the difference. Read more
