By Michael Kerner HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on May 4, 2009
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.

This brief game (a skilled gamer could put it down in probably less than five hours) mostly eschews the classic formula of the previous DK games where you can take your time and explore up, down, forward, and back to find bananas and coins and other hidden goodies. To be sure you can do this in several levels of this game but most levels really keep you moving forward and a faster clip and your main objective is simply to collect as many bananas as possible as those translate, through tallying over two quick lands, to essentially your total health points at the end of lands wherein you battle ever-evolving nemeses (a giant hog; a giant bird; a giant ape, a giant elephant...you get the picture). Much emphasis is put on your ability to lay a beat down with your mighty monkey mitts on a variety of enemies. You swing your Wiimote and nunchuk frantically in alternating punch action in order to make Donkey deliver thunderous doses of damaging dings.

It's satisfying and the animation and colors are crisp and vibrant. It could be a fun game to go back to occasionally.

ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE BEST GAMES WE HAVE. MY LITTLE ONE IS A GEEK AND ABSOLUTELY LOVES COMPUTERS ESPECIALLY VIDEO GAMES. HE IS VERY PICKY AND THIS ONE HAS KEPT HIM, HIS FRIENDS AND HIS FAMILY BUSY FOR OVER A YEAR NOW. IT IS GREAT FOR HIM ESPECIALLY SINCE HE HAS ASTHMA AND HAS TO BE CAREFUL WHEN THE WEATHER CHANGES WHICH, LIVING IN TEXAS, IS ABOUT EVERY 5 MINUTES! HE HAS A COLLECTION OF FAVORITES AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM. HIGHLY ENCOURAGE THIS GAME!

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 can't say I really understand why Nintendo decided to go forth with this "New Play Control" thing, as all Gamecube games are playable on the Wii anyway, but Donkey Kong Jungle Beat was a worthy title to be re-released. I never really wanted to buy Bongo controllers just to play the game, so I'm all over the fact that you don't need them to play this Wii version (although for some reason, the game omits compatibility with them altogether). While I hear the Gamecube original is better despite what anyone may think about Bongos, I still think I made a great choice picking this one up!

This Donkey Kong isn't just the type who throws barrels at carpenters or takes back his stolen banana hoard from an evil reptilian creature; this is the kind of Donkey Kong that will ask you to take him to your leader and proceed to BEAT THE EVERLIVING CRAP OUT OF HIM!! Jungle Beat is a 2.5D platformer that's not too unlike that of the newer Donkey Kong Country games that were released after this, but if there's anything that makes this title so special, it's the very drastic emphasis on its energetic playstyle. Every enemy you crush gets an eventful beating, and that gets further upped as the boss battles are some of the most badass Donkey Kong's ever encountered! My favorite fights are with opponent Kongs since their fights feel like that of Punch Out.

Of course, the platforming itself is also top-notch stuff; while the levels may be shorter than that of certain other Donkey Kong games (which also kinda applies to the entire game itself), every moment is filled to the brim with interesting and varied design, lush environments, and dynamic play.
