New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat review for the WII

 

Of bananas and biceps.

Controls are counter-intuitive; Little replay value

If you have unbreakable hands of steel or happen to spend part of your life as a touring percussionist, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat will surely provide plenty of fun. It uses the bongo drums in a creative fashion, connecting you to the experience in a...

New Play Control! Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat

 

Before the EAD Tokyo team got to grips with Super Mario Galaxy, it was handed a debut project based around both the venerable Donkey Kong and the GameCube peripheral of the bongo drum controllers, which had previously only been used for the Donkey...

Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat was an instant classic when it arrived on the GameCube and now, complete with its impressive new control scheme and welcomed extras, it shines bright amongst a plethora of average Wii titles. If you missed out the first time,...
