THE GOOD: +Unless bought used, the Bongos come with it! +Storyline not too overused +Graphics
THE BAD: -Really noisy at night hitting the bongos and clapping. -A little short -Boss fights are both short and easy -Control
SUMMARY: At first glance, the game looks extremely short with only four levels to choose from. But don't worry, you will be able to unlock a whole lot more! Though not a direct sequel to Donkey Konga, Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat still features basically the same gameplay and controls.
You start off in the intro which actually lets you get a feel for the controls. After that you will be at the main menu screen. Later on in the game there will be a lot of barrels to choose from, each with four levels. In each level you can get up to three crests: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each ranking on how many bananas you collect throughout the level. The graphics are really good, a lot better than most gamecube games.
A few bad things is that it will tire you out. Because the game is so in...
Another bongo game, but this game is nothing like Donkey Konga, it's an adventure game. basically, you use the bongos to control Donkey Kong through a 3-D side-scroller. Though I think there should be more levels, it's a solid game. The graphics are really good and you can tell that they worked hard on the game. There is a lot to do in the game. Collect beats (or bananas) and get medals. In each level there are two areas, which you go collect beats, then after the two areas, there is a boss battle. Where you have to either punch you foe into submission, or another way. After you beat the boss, they will count your beats and give you a certain amount of medals, depending on how much beats you get. There are four medals you can get in each level. Bronze is the first one, to get it, beat the boss. Silver, 500 beats. Gold, 800 beats. Platnum, 1,200 beats. Anyways, this game is really fun and keep you busy for hours. If you like side-scrolling action, this is the game for you.
THE GOOD: Well, the game has some funky music to go along with the game,[the kind that makes ya wanna dance]the graphics are good for a side scroller, and bongos are fun to use.
THE BAD: Man, your hands are going to hurt like heck after slamin that drum.I don't think anyone will stay up until 3:00 a.m. playin this game.[maybe with Super Smash Bros.Melee or Star Wars: Battle Front]
SUMMARY: Well I've got to hand it to Nintendo, they got a pretty fun game here. With rockin music, colorful graphics, cool enemies, [my personal faves, Sumo kong and iguanadon]and a unique way to play, the bongo drums. The only problem is if you play to long your hands will ache. note: that people who bash the bongos, hands will hurt in 10 min. Overall this game is great. If your a D.K. fan get this game today!!!!!
THE GOOD: Awesome Graphics, Sweet Control, Sweet Controler, Kicking Boss Fights
THE BAD: Uber Short, No Multiplayer
SUMMARY: Donkey Konga came out in late 2004 for the Gamecube. It introduced a controller that was two plastic drums together to form bongos. The game was fun, and gamers assumed that only music games would be used for this. I mean, do you really think you could go through diffrent enviorments as Donkey Kong only using the bongo? If you said no, it's time to be inlightened, my friend.
Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat is like the old-school Donkey Kong games we all loved from the SNES era. Except better. In most parts. The first thing unique about this game is that you use the DK Bongos to control Donkey Kong. This seems akward at first, but after the first couple of levels, you dominate the control. Smack the bongos to run, clap to attack, and bash both bongos to jump. Sounds easy, but those couple of moves can do a hell of alot in the battlefield.
