Tropical Freeze is way better than Country Returns and Dixie's whatever it's called. It's easily in top 3 DK games.

It did not place them in order, despite the article being described as a top ten.

Donkey Kong (94) is my preferred game on that list. I think the Rare Country games are pretty rough.

My first reaction was... They made 10 Donkey Kong games?! Then I thought that must be every single one... then I checked the list and Donkey Kong 64 is not even on it. No wonder Nintendo won't make more 3D Donkey Kong. I really enjoyed tropical freeze but I am still waiting for the next 3D game. Its really the only thing I want from the series at this point. Also, I can't take Jungle beat seriously...


What Comes Next for Donkey Kong? Making the Ape a Priority!

KeenGamer: "What can Nintendo do to honor the anniversary of Donkey Kong Country Returns and what direction does the company go in with one of their oldest characters? Next month will mark a full decade since the iconic ape of the Big N's catalogue graced the Wii with brilliant side-scrolling and platforming action! A sequel followed in 2014, but the neglect for DK doesn’t sit well with many gamers in 2020."
