    This is up there with the great RPG's like Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie. Perhaps surpassing them in the process.

    Donkey Kong was a pretty good game

    Rated on December 30, 2005 by Ds_Bloodlust

    This was the first game that the N64 expansion card thing was used. Because of this, the graphics for this game are pretty good compared to other N64 games. This was basically like mario 64 and Banjo ...

    Donkey Kong 64 would have to be the most epic adventure of its series!

    Rated on September 12, 2009 by Wolflink001

    I'll never forget... It was so long ago when this game first hit the shelves! It was October 31st 1999 when the N64 was in its hay day! This game just made my day when I first played it! In fact... ...

    This new take on the Donkey Kong universe is one of the greatest changes a series can make.

    Donkey Kong 64 was released on the Nintendo 64 on November 22, 1999. It was one of the few games that required the use of the Nintendo 64 expansion pak, which was luckily packaged with the game. In ...

    With the huge success from the DKC series on the SNES, Nintedo hoped to do the same with DK on the N64. DK 64 is the first and only N64 game that requires the "expansion pack" to play. The game is H...

    This is possibly one of the greatest games their is.

    Rated on September 24, 2009 by gamerinchrist

    To me, this is the greatest of the donkey kong series; after this, the donkey kong games just get horrible and repetisious. You can truly get lost exploring the amazing open worlds. David Wise also co...

    Rated on September 25, 2009 by duker2

    This was a pretty good game (for something made in a month.) but kinda hard and a tad bit boring. Story: King K. Rool has crashed his ship into DK island and steals all of the golden bananas and ki...
