All 5 Donkey Kong Country Games, Ranked

All of the Donkey Kong Country games have been fantastic, in their own way - so trying to work out which of them is the king of swing is a daunting task. Now that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has been triumphantly rereleased on the Nintendo Switch, we take a look back on these legendary platformers to rank them properly.

Glad Freeze has a chance to shine on a system more people own!

Still unsure whether to pick up Freeze though!

Same. I love DKC back in the day, but I hardly ever play the Switch and I'm not sure I want to put anymore money into it.

Theknightofnights1781d ago

You hardly ever play the Switch, so you don't want to invest money into games that will help you play your Switch more often?

That doesn't really make sense...

I hardly ever play my Switch because better version of games are typically on PS or Xbox, so my money goes on those platforms. I've bought 2 games for the Switch - Mario Kart and Super Mario Odyssey. I played each for a couple of days. My Switch has collected dust sense. Sure, DKC might be a good reason to dust it off, but more as a rental than a full purchase. Other than that, there isn't any other game coming to Switch I'm interested in. And if I had to part with one of my consoles sometime soon, it'd easily be the Switch.

That’s kind of his point. It sounds like you aren’t investing in games that would put your Switch to use. I bet if you bought more games for the console it’d get more play time.

A console is only as good as the games you buy for it.

It's pretty easy to see you don't actually have a Switch, go away you troll.

I was also on the fence. I ended up buying it and I’m glad I did. It looks great in Docked mode and also Portable mode. The loading times are much better and it’s a locked 60fps.

If you haven't played it on the Wii U already, and loved the original DKC games, then yes, go for it. It's fantastic.

Looking forward to finally getting the chance to play Tropical Freeze.

Kiddy Kong always scared the hell out of me (especially in Japanese where his name is Dinky).

strayanalog1781d ago

Ah, yes. Twinfinite.

Here's their list:‎‎
5. DKC: R
4. DKC 3
3. DKC: TF
2. DKC
1. DKC 2

I haven't played Tropical Freeze (which I will today), so I hold my opinion till then.‎
