I give this game an overall 8/10.
Graphics: 7/10 Controls: 9/10 Re/Playability: 9/10 Storyline: 7/10
Basically, a good solid game. Nice adaptation to the DK series. Bongo controller surpassed my initial reservations. May need to get my hands on 3 more for multiplayer. A must buy for those who like the dancing/dj/drum/guitar type games.
Storyline not relevant to DK series – doesn't really matter its not mean't to be. I clocked the free jam section for points but replayability value had me doing it all over again and again. Graphically, Ive seen better. But for a breakout game in a genre Nintendo has never visited properly its a start.
NB. Don't buy if you don't appreciate people laughing at how ridiculously funny you look… or if you cant keep a beat to save your life! :)
