    Have a Cube, buy this game. Don't have a Cube, buy one!

    Donkey Konga is one of the truly great games available for the Game Cube. Equally fun in both single or multi-player! GRAPHICS: Graphics don't really apply for this game since you have to be watching the barrel symbo... Read Full Review

    Definitely worth it!

    This game is really for someone who loves music, but can't play drums to save his life! I love to play instruments, i.e sax, clarinet, flute, trumpet, but i could never quite get the hang of playing the drums. I picked t... Read Full Review

    Fun and a great way to improve rhythm skills but unfortunately the song selection is weak and the extras fall flat.

    Donkey Konga is a fun rhythm game that is great for partys and multiplayer. Unfortunately, it's potential is wasted due to a poor selection of songs and its lame extras. A package with 1 DK Bongo controller and the game ... Read Full Review

    its a very simple but fun little game

    It’s been several years since the release of Donkey Kong 64, but even in 2004, the scars left by Rare’s abomination of a collectathon-based-platformer have not yet healed. With Rare under the care of Microsoft now, Ninte... Read Full Review

    Fun to play with other people

    This game is pretty cool. IT's LIKE DDR WITH YOUR HANDS!@!! But seriously, its a good game, but not flawless by any means. The game consists of hitting bongos to rythms....and clapping. Except the mic on the bongos i... Read Full Review

    Donkey Konga - Fun, but not the greatest.

    I like the idea behind Donkey Konga, it is something us percussionists have been waiting for while having to compete on dance pads when we knew were weren't great dancers to begin with. You get to beat on the left or rig... Read Full Review

    Alright the game I have been waiting for "Donka Konga the Nintendo/Namco beat game" has been tearing up my living room all night. Since the extra bongo drums dont release for another few days i just dropped 200.00 bills ... Read Full Review

    It controls pretty good, but definitely has flawed moments. You will have fun with it though if you enjoy music games.

    It's not an overwhelming, but dont let that fool you, it's enjoyable. Like any good music game it makes you strive to master its songs, and then go beats your friends heads in with your awesome skills. The bongo's them... Read Full Review
