If pressed, I'd say the DKC series is a tad underrated. No one can forget the crazy hype machine of DKC back in the SNES days, but nowadays, I think DK could get a little more appreciation. So let's give props to the big ape, even if he doesn't star in like half of these. What's your favorite Donkey Kong Country game?
Played a little bit of Donkey Kong Country on the SNES Classic the other night, and while it's great, yeah, I guess it hasn't aged amazingly. There's not much question about Tropical Freeze being better!
Tough one...but I give the nostalgic edge to DKC2 over Tropical Freeze by the slightest of margins. Both were excellent (and I'd buy Tropical Freeze again if it were ported to the Switch in a heartbeat).
I loved Tropical Freeze but I'll put DKC2 over it. Though the game is maybe a bit too dark at times, it's still just so magical.
And honestly, while I LOVE the Retro DKC games...I'm still not a fan of how they implemented the roll technique. There's just no...nuance to it? I also don't like how you have to tap the jump button at the right time instead of simply holding it to gain a boost off enemies.
It's basically the SNES game, though there are a couple additions. There's a new stage in Chimp Caverns for example, and a longer, revamped 'Winky's Walkway.' I want to say there are new mini games and a Time Trial mode...but I may be confusing that for the GBA re-re-release.
I'd probably go with Donkey Kong Country 2, but really, I think the entire Super NES trilogy is incredible. It's one of the most consistently impressive, amazing trilogies I've ever experienced in gaming.
