Donkey Kong's run with Nintendo needs more love. Find out why the famous ape is actually underrated
Donkey Kong Country is not underrated. It is one of the most celebrated series of SNES and GBA, with a good passage through the N64, and very well evaluated in aggregators in the versions of Wii (87), 3DS (83), Wii U (83) and Switch (86). Perhaps only the evaluation of the Switch version is a little overrated, since it is merely a port of the previous version. Trying to value a series you like does not have to go through creating parallel versions of reality. It would be more interesting if the author proposed a title, more or less along these lines: "what makes Donkey Kong Country such a well-received and recognized series?"

Donkey Kong is Nintendo’s longest running series. It deserves more respect
