too much work for a video gameThis game was o.k. The fact that you constantly have to shake the remote to accelerate tires you after one race. If you take that out it still is just an average game maybe a 7 or 8. Only if you are a die hard Donkey Kong fan or racing fan might this suit you.

Why does everyone hate it so much? This game ROCKS!!!When I saw the reviews for DKBB I was a bit worried that this would not be any good at all. Now I can't get enough of Donkey Kong and thought it can't really be as bad as the critics say. So time passes and I just couldn't help myself. I bought it. And let me tell you, I was 246% satisfied. The game has you choose your favorite DK heroes (Monkeys) or villans (Crocodiles) such as Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Kritter and Kass with many others to be unlocked. The controls couldn't be more clever. Each character is wearing a jetbelt with rocket barrels sticking out of each side. Now here is the neat part: Utilizing the unique usage of the Wii remote and nunchuk, you flick the nunchuk to bang the left barrel making you go left while flicking the Wii remote to bang the right barrel will allow you go head right. You need to pound both barrels one after the other to build up speed and when you've pounded them long enough you'll reach "Max Speed" where you will go faster and would not have to bang each berrel one after the other to accelerate. Powerups and items scattered around the track will also help you against other players who will stop at nothing to beat you to the trophy. That's practically all there is to it. It's simple enough to understand, yet it's challenging enough for people looking for... well a challenge. So ignore what the critics say about DKBB. Go out, pick it up, play it, and enjoy it!
