Donkey Konga - drums and monkeys, together at last; their powers combined in a game that was perfect in design and execution, packed with a satisfying pair of drums to bash your tunes out on. When Nintendo monkeyed (ha!) with the formula for DK Jungle Beat, even the most optimistic gamers choked at the idea of playing a platform game with a pair of bongos, but Nintendo proved the doubters wrong and we’ve never been so happy to have been mistaken. Jungle Beat remains one of the GameCube’s highlights, so we bit our tongues when they announced DK Barrel Blast. Drums, monkeys and bongo-powered jetpacks? How could it possibly go wrong?
We have a list.
