Boy, this sure brings back memories. All the fun of the arcade is here, plus a whole lot more. Donkey Kong has more features, including a save function, cool new cinemas, never-before-seen levels, and color using the Super Game Boy. I can't stress enough how good this game is. On the plain old Game Boy. it's OK. But on the TV, it really rocks! I'm buying a Super Game Boy just for this remake of the old classic.


This game caught me totally by surprise! As the first title for the Super Game Boy, i am very impressed. The amount of color in the game is pretty amazing. I like the cute musical theme. And like all Mario games, DK has some of the finest control. The many new levels are welcome. The only reason this gets a lower score is that it's not as impressive on a Game Boy, even though it's still very good. I like this a lot!


Welcome to the biggest surprise hit of the year. I had no idea that this game could offer so much in such a tiny package. Donkey Kong brings back all the best aspects of the arcade, while introducing new concepts, making the game even better. Although color definitely helps the score, the game looks and plays just fine on the old GB. Great job Nintendo! It looks as if you'll be selling plenty of Super Game Boys for this.


Good old Sushi has flipped his lid! I actually enjoyed a Game Boy cart. True, I played it on the Super Game Boy in color, but the tried-and-true Donkey Kong plays great on the portable. The levels and even the sounds were faithfully reproduced. As for the graphics, I couldn't believe how close it looks. I highly suggest this cart. I still can't believe I like a Game Boy cart, but then again it wasn't on a green screen.
