Why do People Hate DKC 3?

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "The Donkey Kong Country trilogy, produced by Rare for the Super Nintendo is often considered as one of the best examples of 2D platforming’s peak during the 16-bit era. And its easy to see why, all three games in the series have an incredible graphic style, fantastic soundtrack and some of the smoothest controls you’ll ever experience. In all respects each of these games is a masterpiece and worthy of a spot in the halls of gaming’s greats… So why is it so many people seem to dislike the final game in the original trilogy? Nearly everywhere I’ve looked I see someone badmouthing DKC 3 while the original and 2 are heaped with praise and to me, that just makes no sense. So I ask, why do people hate DKC 3?"

People hate on many games. This is nothing new. It doesn’t mean that these type of games don’t also have their large fanbase

Funny. I just saw a video that explains why.

It wasn't a hate... it was more like nothing could follow the high that was the second game. The title was doomed to fail from the get-go, because the buildup was on another level, but it wasn't a bad outing if one looks at it level-headed, though still the lesser of the trilogy.

Side note: I didn't, and still don't, like Kiddy Kong. He just didn't have anything special about him.‎

It was stupid to make Kiddy a main character. It might as well have been Donkey Kong since both characters share the same traits. I found it weird that DK is only playable in one of his three SNES DKC games. He should have returned in part 3 paired with Dixie.

Eh, I liked the change-up. Infact I'd buy a remake of 2 and 3 ASAP.

Look at the thumbnail. That's enough for me.

I never played DKC 3, I was living in the Dominican republic and never heard of the game before.
