Donkey Kong Barrel Blast


Nintendo, why hath thou forsaken us?

Playing" drums ; Flying monkeys! Tee-hee ; Party-game "potential

Uglier than scabies ; Non-existent steering ; Non-existent fun

With Mario Kart Wii on the horizon, there can be no possible reason to drop cash on Barrel Blast. The ‘it’s a game for children’ or ‘it’s a game for parties’ excuse doesn’t fly nearly as well as the rocketeering Kongs and Kremlings. It's still the...

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast


Finally, there's a racing game for people who can't steer.

Nice graphics ; Even a newborn can play ; Fun chain-boosting mechanic

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast


Monkeys plus barrels and racing should equal blast. Instead, this game slips on the banana peel.

Uses the Wiimote and Nunchuk; features the best ape in apedom

Product Specifications

Race to victory with the DK Crew! Donkey Kong and friends have located high-powered barrel rockets, and now the battle for king of the jungle is on. One of Nintendo's most popular characters, Donkey Kong, is back with all of his friends ... and a few enemies as well. Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, King K. Rool and the whole gang appear as playable characters in this fast-paced racing adventure. Simple Wii controls make racing a snap. Shake the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to accelerate, then shake one or the other to turn. Press a single button or shake the controller to jump, attack or use items. Target enemies with a Pineapple Cannon, skillfully chain together Wild Moves or use the Wii Remote to blast out of a Style Barrel. Multiple game-play modes, 16 awesome courses and a rollicking four-player multiplayer game will keep players coming back for more.
