| A masterpiece of a 2D platformer
(I'm reviewing the Nintendo Switch version) I honestly wasn't expecting much with this game, as I never played a DKC game beforehand, and because of this, I was a bit skeptical on how good a 2D platformer can be, since I don't play a lot, aside from most 8 bit and 16 bit games of course. But this game is fantastic in every way I want it to be. First, the visuals are crisp and beautiful, popping with color and vasts amount of detail. Everything about this game just looks beautiful. Second, the gameplay is amazing, as Donkey Kong and Funky Kong both feel like a joy in each level. Speaking of, the levels are also another highlight, as each one of them are very well designed and all look and play extremely well. One thing to note is that some of these levels are infuriatingly difficult. However, unlike other rage inducing games, the game never feels unfair. I never blamed the game for the amount of times I died, and thanks to the excellent level design, I had a blast perfecting the challenges that I faced. But, thanks to the Switch version of this game, this is made much less difficult thanks to the added funky mode, which is where you play as Funky Kong (or Donkey Kong if you want). What's awesome about this mode is that you get more hit points and much more abilities if you're Funky Kong. This is great to see here for beginners or for someone wanting to play this game a fun new way than what they played in the normal mode. The music in this game is great, as it has a ton of variety, and fits every level almost, if not perfectly. And after playing the original Donkey Kong Country for the SNES after playing this game, I noticed that some of the music in that game make an appearance here with an updated sound, which is just awesome. The boss battles are fantastic as well, as they each have a ton of variety and are all fun. Same with the bonus rounds where you pick up bananas for an extra puzzle piece. I like how there are a lot variations of it, and since each of them are fun, I'm always down to play one of the same ones again. Overall, this game just kicks so much ass, and is one of the best 2D platformers I have ever played, and I can't recommend it enough to those looking for a fun, beautiful, and fleshed out game that offers so much awesomeness. All in all, I'm very happy with this game, as it is, in my opinion, a masterpiece of a 2D platformer, and I can't recommend it enough.
