Donkey Kong NES Review - Yes...Nostalgia...But beyond that...not too much

by Hokum on Tuesday, January 1, 2002
Revolutionary for it's time, moderate fun as a quick timewaster, but honestly this game is a little too short, simple and outdated. The controls aren't the most responsive, and Mario isn't very flexible or strong, and dies very easily. And the NES version is even shorter than the already short arcade game as they eliminated the pie factory level. In my opinion, Donkey Kong Jr. & Donkey Kong 3 are better games, though a little too short and simple as well. If you must get it, because it is such a classic, get the Donkey Kong Classics cartridge, which has DK Jr. as well.
