5. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest (Shonen_Bat)

This is my favorite 2-D platformer ever (My second favorite may surprise people even more, but nobody nominated it!). I love the look, feel, and sound of Donkey Kong Country 2. The various locations in this game are really good (The pirate theme is very cool), with an excellent soundtrack to enhance it. Diddy and Dixie are a great team, and they give you new teammate abilities to help you take out enemies you otherwise couldn't defeat and to reach bonus areas. Dixie's ponytail whirl is ridiculously good. It enables her to cover large distances while slowing your descent to make the platforming easier and is invaluable during certain boss fights, particularly the two duels against Kaptain K. Rool. Speaking of which, I love both of those fights. It's not a simple "jump on his head" or "throw something at him," but K. Rool throws wave after wave after wave of various obstacles in different patterns. One of the great thrills of this game is being able to defeat him without taking a hit, which I haven't been able to pull off with Diddy to this day. Hopefully, I will eventually accomplish that someday!

Donkey Kong Country 2 has masterful level design. It's an offshoot of Sonic's momentum-based platforming, although it uses enemy and item placement instead of speed to achieve it. It's one of those games where you want to replay the levels just to try to get through them more smoothly, and if you do it just right, you can roll through the level moving from one setpiece to the next. One of the biggest appeals of Donkey Kong Country 2 is finding all its secrets, whether it's the bonus rooms or the Hero Coins, which might be the single best collectible ever. They're strategically placed in each level, and many of them force you to think outside the box, thoroughly explore, and be swift to get them. Plus, there's the fact that Cranky Kong spends the entire game talking smack about you, so you're extra motivated to get them all so you can shove it in his face (as well as shove Mario, Link, and Yoshi off of the award pedestal). Then there's the Lost World, which you gain access to little by little as you earn Kremcoins from the bonus stages, and some of those stages can be pretty rough but satisfying to beat, especially Animal Antics.

Perhaps one of the coolest new gameplay touches in Donkey Kong Country 2 is the fact that now you can transform into the animal buddies, so they can revolve entire levels around their particular set of skills. It just expanded all that they could do with the game in terms of level design. Those animal stages can be kind of hit or miss sometimes, but they can be really fun when they get it right, too. This game is just a sheer joy to play, and I never get tired of it. It's a perfect combination of style and substance.

Bonus Question: What is your favorite 2-D platformer?

Third straight exact hit for AxemRedRanger, and NBIceman got it right, too! Bunch of people whiffed on this one though!

top 5 is by far MGS3

i guess it would rank higher than AA3 as a 'game,' but AA3 has given me more as an experience, so hard to say
