Not quite as good as its sequels, but still the game that started the series, so that deserves something.

As if a game featuring a giant ape who beats up alligators and rides a rhinoceros would be anywhere other than the top five. Easily the most classic Super Nintendo game about a monkey with a tie, Donkey Kong Country deserves praise simply for putting its developer, Rare, on the map, kicking off a spree of little-known games like GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark, and Conker's Bad Fur Day. Their first mega-hit was no slouch, either, with pseudo-3D graphics that pushed the SNES to its limits, co-op gameplay, and tons of level variety.

Gries He opinions, how do they work. I could barely reach the first boss when I played this back in the day on snes and I feel that I'm wasting my time whenever I start a game that I can't finish for some arbitrary reason. Rayman Legends and Origins did it right, both were rather difficult but never punishing.

Aramonde I guess just different generations of gamers.

Alianger w/ good reflexes and some patience for memorization: 4/5. A let's play could be entertaining! Edit: make that average reflexes, just tried it again and made it to the third world with 40+ lives.

Firion Hope Ara be reasonable, I mean at least he gave it a 0/5 only. I would give beyond a score somewhere in the negatives

dvd This is the first I've heard of DKC being too hard. It's been a long time, but I don't remember having trouble beating it as a kid (I was 9 years old). I remember DKC2 being harder, but still not NES-level difficult. I don't think Rayman Origins is much easier either, if at all. Maybe my skills have atrophied or something.

Ice The Retro Kid Lol @ With Save States, ungh, come on, the game isn't THAT hard, it's a fair challenge. Then again, gamers had more skill back then...

Magus Magus Yeah, I don't find this game super-hard or anything. I guess it's a step up from Mario and post-original Metroid though. And I can't speak for the newer Rayman games but I find the original on PS1 pretty aggravating!

I'm not kidding, but the Graphics in this Game STILL look Good today!!! This is an amazing Platformer Game that even puts most Mario Games to shame. Great work Rareware!

Truth be told the level design really isn't that great compared to the gold standard (the Mario Bros. series), but the colorful graphics and sound made up the difference. One of if not the best relaunch of a video game character ever.
