No doubt that this game (and this game series) had some of the best tunes on the SNES.


I think DKC2's is much better by miles. I love this game's soundtrack, but when you really look at it, it only has a few memorable tracks, and most of the others are just this sort of ambience. High-quality ambience, mind, but ambience nonetheless.

I'd have to agree with Mr. Miyamoto. I think the only reason he apologized was because the game was selling well and it might have caused tension within Nintendo.

To be completely honest, I was blown away by the graphics of DKC in 1994. Everyone was. However, I didn't really sit down and play the game till I got an SNES in the early 2000's, as I'd been a Genesis owner during the console wars. I sat down, played it beginning to end and I have to say: bar some good music and atmosphere, Donkey Kong Country is a mediocre game in a beautiful package. As far as gameplay and level design it was more linear than the Mario or Sonic titles.

The kids who grew up with SNES remember it fondly, I just remember it as an average game with great music (admittedly Gang Plank Galleon is awesome).

No proof he ever said it.

Typical Gamefaqs.

Not to mention DKC is a terrible game that even LOOKS ugly.

Funny, it seems it was Miyamoto that caused the series to be brought back : )

I'd have much less expected to see THAT happen. He wanted even the music to be reminiscent of the DKC series.

It seems I may have to re-evaluate the man's commitment to the cause.

That's a load of BS. Here is a REAL quote from Miyamoto:

http://wii.ign.com/articles/110/1100039p3.html

Miyamoto: "The first point that I want to make is that I actually worked very closely with Rare on the original Donkey Kong Country. And apparently recently some rumor got out that I didn't really like that game? I just want to clarify that that's not the case, because I was very involved in that. And even emailing almost daily with Tim Stamper right up until the end."

That quote the TC mentioned is not BS. It's apparently no longer true, or had been taken out of context to begin with, but Miyamoto actually did say that.

And really, until recently, has Miyamoto done anything to make us think differently?

Miyamoto must have been bitter back when he said it but he seems to have become more mature over the years...
