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

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. Read morePublished on January 20, 2013 by razzystar678
It's only for one player. Basically the same things on each level. Not much fun to watch one person play. Then start a new game just to have someone lose play too. Read morePublished on January 12, 2013 by H. Sanders
