Question for anyone that's played Donkey Kong 64

I'm sure I've mentioned this in the past before, but I'd really like to figure something out here. There seems to be a shared opinion about this game, for one particular mission that's for some ungodly reason NECESSARY to beat the game. Anyone one know what I'm talking about already? I'm hoping so. The DK arcade mission. Or I should say the mission you have to beat twice to beat DK64.

Now, I've been running into more and more people lately that agree that this is the worst thing about this game, and I find it strange. Donkey Kong the original game, I love on the NES, Colecovision, Gameboy, pretty much every platform, it's a fine game. However, something about this version they have on the N64 is just horrid. I can't put my finger on what, but it's just awful. I'd go as far to say it's the sole reason that the DK64 I love gets wrecked for me every playthrough.

I'm just looking here, because it is odd. I consider myself decent at the original DK game, I can usually get through the game over and over, and over again as the difficulty increases, through several play-through's, and yet this version on the N64 requires you to beat one play-through twice, on level 1, and level 2. Something about it on DK64 is so much more difficult though, and no it's not the control stick. you can use the control pad.

Just curious, anyone else have trouble with this version of the game, and hate it? I know I do. Again, not saying I hate Donkey Kong the original game, just this version, and everything about this version.

Edit: My best guess is you get one life, and the control sucks.

Sounds like you're not used to the arcade version. The version in DK64 is the only release of the original arcade game outside of arcades or dedicated PCB. Home console ports to other systems are ALWAYS easier, because nobody likes hard games outside of arcades.

You even got off easy with this, since it's the Japanese version of the game - the American version is much harder.

I personally am glad to actually have a legit version of the arcade game.

Re: Question for anyone that's played Donkey Kong 64

It's been 2 years since I last played DK64. I'm watching a lets play of it now, and the guy is what I'd consider a classic gamer, N64 is about as new as he goes usually. (usually does snes & nes lets plays)

While watching it, he was even having trouble. I think he mentioned something about the game having control delay on certain T.V.'s. I'd like the believe this is the reason it gave me so much trouble but it's likely not. Although, if memory serves, it would make sense. I did hate the control in the N64 port, and it did seem off, but that could just be me.

I did beat the game for the Nintendo coin once before probably 3 years back. (2nd play-through you have to do), and several times for the golden banana (first play-through). I strongly believe that this one mission never should have been necessary to complete the game. They also make you get like 50 000 on jetpac to get the rareware coin, but that's actually fun and a lot easier.

Re: Question for anyone that's played Donkey Kong 64

DK64 itself is one of the best games I've ever played. I'd recommend finding an expansion pak, it's worth it. Yeah it's a collectathon, but it's not like you don't have to do fun missions to collect everything.

Re: Question for anyone that's played Donkey Kong 64

I had no trouble with this part at all. But I had played the arcade version before so that may be why. I don't remember any lag problems.
