Best Donkey Kong Games
The Top Ten
This is my second favourite game of all time personally. It's also the game that made me aspire to become a video games composer. One day...
Donkey kong country 1 is still my favorite, but I still love this game. It's just a little way too hard. I can't get past the swamp world
I was raised with this game. We go way back. I get teary eyed just thinking about it.
Amazing soundtrack, amazing level design and great varying gameplay from getting bonus coins to get to the lost world to making sure you had all the DK Coins.
Such a hard choice! This one has to be the best because of the world design! Not only that but it's the last good donkey kong. (tropical freeze and the Wii one are good but they will never compare to rare wares donkey kong games. )
It aged badly on some areas (although less than what people consider the "best game of all time") so I don't think it deserves the number 2 spot. - DensestPotato
I like donkey kong - winfreyb
This game is the main reason why I like gaming so much!
The first game on my gameboy... I played it for YEARS, and I still do to this day. Can't get enough of this legendary game
Such a fun game.. DK is useless Diddy is way better! - BimmyJim
I think this deserves number 1. As a kid I was so jealous my friends owned it and I didn't.
The best donkey kong game!
This one was the one I grew up with. It gave us a challenge. And that's what I enjoyed the most.
And this game is my favourite one - LuigiGamerX
Best Donkey Kong game to date!
This game is no joke - thunderstar1124
Easily the best Donkey Kong game. It has 2 new characters, an awesome soundtrack, really fun gameplay, and not-to-hard to reach collectibles.
My nostalgia would say otherwise, but I think this is honestly the bat Donkey Kong game to date (let alone Country game). The gameplay has been really refined here from both the old (original DKC trilogy) and the new (DKC Returns). While I did like Donkey Kong Country Returns, it pales in comparison to this masterpiece of a platformer, and I'd say that it's because Tropical Freeze feels completely new and creative with almost EVERY one of its levels, which is something that the games from the original trilogy strived for (maybe DKC3 to a lesser extent).
This game is often criticized for being shorter than Returns, but I honestly think that it's for the better, since I find that Returns drags on a world or so too long. This game ends right when it needs to, in my opinion, and if you still are craving more after that, you have an extra (though small) world that rewards you with Hard Mode, where you can play as any Kong individually. Speaking of Kongs, I also love the choices ...more
No matter the Nostalgia of the original trilogy, this is hands down the best Donkey Kong Country game ever
Great dynamic level designs.
What to say? My favourite game of all time from when I took for the first time a controller.
I'm a big fan of all DK games and seriously, this game is VERY underrated.
I played all of theme, and nobody equaled the "emotion" I felt when I played this.
It has the best gameplay of the DKC trilogy, it has fantastic levels in my opinion, it has a great soundtrack (not the best of the trilogy), it has great secrets, this game has a lot things to do, and they are all funny.
For me, the only three games that maybe can overcome this are: DKC2, DK64 and DKCR. But this will be always my favourite.
STOP underestimate this game!
The forgotten game of the trilogy. DKC3 was played by few due to being released for the SNES about four months after the N64 was released. Although the soundtrack and challenge of the second game is much better, the third has many more things to do. The overworld is huge, and the graphics were very well made. The mini games were both funny and entertaining. A very overlooked game. Highly recommendable.
Although it was the weakest of the trilogy, it was still pretty awesomne and as well-done as the other two. - darthvadern
The controls feel great, the OST is AMAZING for 2004 Gamecube, and punching enemies with the controller, Donkey Konga Bongos or (If you own the Wii version) the Wiinote and Nunchuck
This sure is a great game - LuigiGamerX
I love this game so much! - Spongehouse
You move with bongos - MarioBros11
Seriously, how the hell was this not on here before I added it? It literally began the franchise - MarioBros11
Barely any different from Wii version - MarioBros11
I got this for Christmas years ago.
Most underrated video game evaaarrr!
This is a great, and incredibly underrated game
No. It was bad. - MarioBros11
Favorite DK game. Awesome level design
Its on like donkey kong
Is this any good? I never played it
This game is the worst, terrible physics, screen crunch up the ass and overal not worth it when you can grab the gba remake. Its not like the other dkl games where they are different enough for people to appreciate too, its different in all the wrong aspects. - DensestPotato
Lamest idea ever - MarioBros11
