Why is this game the least-good DK game? I'm not saying it's bad, but compared to the original trilogy this game just feels like they took Banjo-Kazooie and gave it a Donkey Kong paintjob. It's by far my least favorite of the Donkey Kong Country series.
What are your thoughts on DK64?
If they took Banjo-Kazooie and gave it a Donkey Kong paintjob, that would still have been a great game. Instead, they took the collectathon formula they put together through B-K and B-T and just turned it way the fuck up, putting fucking collectable things all over the god damn place, collectables of six different varieties that you have to constantly switch Kongs to get, hidden collectables, all sorts of wacky shit.
>tfw I actually 101%'d that game
That was hell. Having a greatly limited amount of games to play was the worst.
I think you're just dumb.
A toy is pointless but provides amusement with moving parts, colors, etc. A game generally has a goal, and DK64's was uninteresting.
As an amusement it was great. The controller in your hands, all the content, hours of fun.
The game itself from start to finish wss a chore.
I loved this game as a kid. Recently picked it up a few months back and completed it in 2 days. It's alright, but I don't think it's as great as I once thought it was.
The only fun thing I remember about DK64 was its minigames. I feel like the collectathon/exploration aspect was just needless padding to get to the actual fun parts of the game like the turtle slide race, the mine cart section, and the beaver bother and all those other cool minigames.
I played it last year, Project64, Jabo's standard plugin, everything fine apart from some minor graphics glitches and the fairy camera photos being black unless you activate buffer copying.
I always liked Gloomy Galleon, simply from its setting and atmosphere. Something about those deep, dark waters was very unsettling.
Overall, the game was pretty bad though. DKC2 is where it's at.
