how did i get so far as a kid this game is hard as balls.
awesome game though


This is a game I really wanted to like since it's so well loved but I just couldn't do it. As of right now I'm about 3 worlds in and while it's not terrible nothing has really grabbed me and I don't really feel like putting forth the effort in finishing the game, at least not right now. I don't think me also replaying tropical freeze with some friends around the same time I played this helped matters as playing that game just kinda exasperated my issues with this one, and I know I shouldn't let a game later in the series effect how I feel about an older with advancements in game design and tech and all that but I can't help but feel that. I'll probably come back to this game eventually but as of right now I have no desire to finish it.


monkey kong gets shot in this one

Wow, this is a HUGE step-up from the first DK Country. I really enjoy the first game and it's a pleasant surprise that it's sequel not only improves existing mechanics from the first game, but builds upon those core mechanics. The contrasting abilities between Diddy and Dixie made me switch between the two characters more often (rather than sticking to one). Dixie's parasol ability has good game feel; I love parasol controls in games (Rayman, Conker, etc.). Level designs are fresh and thrilling. It made me want to binge levels. The animals this time around have more involvement than just simply being assistants—they actually design levels catered to the animal's abilities. Love the introduction of the snake. Bonus areas are more management to find this time around and give you a coins that are used to access the Lost World. I like how the bonus rooms are all unique obstacle courses rather than some mini-game. Klobbers are really annoying, especially the ones that take bananas and LIVES! Not a fan of having to collect coins to pay to save your game. I'd sometimes stress getting these coins because I was afraid of finishing a difficult level, but not having enough coins to save. Then, I discovered you can get items and level the stage by pausing and then pressing "select," but not until the last world. Highly recommend this game and I can't wait to finish the SNES DK Country trilogy.

Best Parts:
• Honeycomb levels
• Roller coasters
• The stage where the seals cool down the hot water (lava?)
• Pretty much all the levels with the bird (the level with all the animals in the Lost World is horrible with the bird)
• Hot air balloon

Replay It? - Definitely


Is... Cool, I cant get that much as other people in the DKC games. Are just good and nothing more, okay plataforming, cool asthetic, great ost and nothing more.
