Donkey Kong 64 released today!(E Shop)

Postby BadElf » Thu Apr 16, 2015 7:57 pm

Even with being the big fan of Rare that I am, I for some reason never got a chance to play DK 64 back in the day. It was released today(In NA) and I am very excited, I of course purchased it. Is it classic, beautiful, fun 90s Rare platforming?
Where does it rank for you guys?

If your not a person that feels the NEED to 100% a game then you will enjoy it fully. Unfortunately I AM one of those people so DK64 becomes pretty tedious and frustrating at times but the charm of the characters , grants music and of course the intro are worthy reasons to buy this game.

It came out on the day it was announced in Europe! 8-)

I'm up to Fungi Forest, but haven't played in a while. The collecting was starting to wear me down. I was having lots of fun though! Will have to get back to it soon.

GameFreak: $9.99 in America, or £8.99 in England.
(The conversion rate should be £6.70, but as always, England pays more...)

The only thing that ever bothered me was Tinys beetle race and some of the beaver bother games.

Mm. I wonder if they nerfed the race. To my recollection that bugger was brutal.

It took me a few attempts, but it mostly just involved speeding up at the right rime (when the road splits into two) and maintaining the pace.

In the first level right now. Its pretty good so far. I can tell, the collecting could become tedious, But I do love collectables, so its better than having too few.(You can always skip some, if needed)
Now, I have 4/5 Golden Bananas with DK and 5/5 with Diddy. I dont HAVE to get the last one with DK, before moving to the next world, right? Can I even get the last one for DK right now?

I heard this version is bigger, stronger, and faster too.

I'm having a blast replaying the game. I haven't played it in years. I have 100% the first 4 worlds and I'm on my way to Fungi Forest after work. I can definitely see the problems in the game (most noticeably the camera and sensitive controls) but nothing has really kept me from enjoying myself so far.

So, has anyone managed to complete the game yet? I got 101% completion with the collectibles, but I can't beat the final boss. The game keeps crashing during Tiny's part of the fight. Am I the only one who's having this problem?
