The 'Shroom:Issue XXVIII/Classic Review
Welcome to another episode of the Classic review! I'm your host, Yoshi301! ahem... sorry, I've always wanted to say that. Anyways, in my last article I did the classic Donkey Kong Country. Today I'm doing Donkey Kong Country 2! In this game, King K. Rool kidnaps Donkey Kong. King K. Rool wants the banana hoard as a ransom. Diddy Kong (with his girlfriend, Dixie Kong) must get to the top of Crocodile Isle to get back DK.
This game seems to have a better storyline. Instead of bananas being stolen, Diddy's best friend gets kidnapped.
Gameplay + Graphics
The graphics hadn't improved from the previous game, but didn't get any worse. In this game it is even harder to save. Its hard enough to find somewhere to save, but in this game, you had to pay 2 coins.
Charaters, places, and enemies
This game got rid of Winky and Expresso, replacing them with Rattly and Squitter. All the other ones stayed the same. Candy Kong is not present in this game, because she is replaced with Wrinkly Kong. With that said, there is the exact same amount of animals and Kongs. Instead of DK isle, the game took place on crocodile isle. There are 6 worlds on this island. From a fiery volcano, to a run-down amusement park. The worlds are very interesting. A lot of the enemies have been replaced. Gnaughty the beaver was Neeks the rat. Kritter is now Klomp. Krash is now Klank. Zinger's design is a bit different. There are some new Kremlings also, such as Krook, Kannon, and Kutlass.
Outstanding music in this game. I like it almost as much as the music in the first game. I love "Stickerbush Symphony"
- Donkey Kong Country=8.1
Donkey Kong Country 2 is ahead by .1 Now all we have to see is Donkey Kong Country 3. See you next week!
- Fun fact: Winky bears a resemblance to Flibbets, a species of frogs in Banjo Kazooie's fourth world
