  • Okay kid, wipe that drool off your chin and listen up if you really want to learn something about this game. Sure, it's got newfangled computer graphics and what Diddy calls stereo sound that "rocks heavily and with little resistance!" BUT, the game play? Well, they FINALLY added some proper challenge to the game - a snap for me of course. AND THE STORY? You sure ask a lot of questions, kid! Kaptain K. Rool and his cruelest cut-throat Kremlings have kidnapped that flea-bitten ape Donkey Kong. I figured I'd rescue him when the little pip-squeak DIDDY pops up along with his girlfriend, and they head off fixin' to prove themselves heroes or something. Come to think of it, I haven't laid eyes on those two for quite a while. I just may have to help them out after all!

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest Review written Saturday, February 6th, 2016 at 09:08 am.

10Classic!

One of the first games I can remember playing at daycare. The graphics are truly a work of art but what really makes this game for me is Dixie's flying ability. Shous out to Animal Antics

9.5Classic!

Donkey Kong Country 2 is my third favorite game of all time because it has more level variety than any game I've ever played. Every single stage introduced something new, from the disappearing vines in 'Ghostly Grove' to the frantic death race in 'Haunted Hall'. Few games match the creativity and charm that this classic offers, and the main reason for that is how many unique areas there are. It also helps that it has my second favorite soundtrack in video game history, only losing to the unmatched brilliance of the Chrono Trigger soundtrack. The third entry in this beloved franchise tried to follow this design philosophy of adding something new to every zone, and while it's amazing in it's own right, it isn't as outstanding as DKC2.

10Classic!

The pinnacle of 2D platformers. It constantly astounds, impresses and subverts my expectations. Each time I think it can't possibly get better, it smashes my expectations even more.

8.0Great

The best 2D platformer ever made. It improves on the first game so much, keeping the same theme, and outdoes others like Mario, Sonic, and Rayman.

10Classic!

Trailing behind Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Tomb Raider II: Starring Lara Croft could be none other than this destined-for-greatness classic. You all know the game: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Released a year after the 1st game in the original Donkey Kong Country series, this game blew it's 1st title out of the water in a near instant. While it's true, you can't actually "be" Donkey Kong in this game, he eventually makes a pretty kick*** comeback near the end, delivering the final coup-de-grace to the mischievous, and downright rotten, Kaptain K. Rool, whom had captured Donkey Kong at the start of the game's story. The game's level design, artwork, and music are what make this game so great. Diddy BoomBox! 10/10

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest Review written Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 at 04:39 am.

10Classic!

My personal favorite of the SNES Donkey Kong trio. No offense to Donkey Kong, but Dixie's agility, small size, and hair hover, made this game for me. Some personal highlights of this title is the hip-hop by Diddy, or the guitar shred by Dixie at the end of the level, the music in levels like "Bramble Scramble" (the calming effect of that song made that super hard level bearable,) and the arm-pit fart noise made by jumping on an ant. If you haven't played any of the Donkey Kong series yet then you have a massive gap in your gaming experience.

10Classic!

This game is my favorite game of all time. It has the most memorable soundtrack, best world development, and the best feeling of nostalgia you can ever imagine.
