First, I have beaten this game to completion. I am playing it now to freshen up on the sequel. Unfortunately, the thing I remember most about this game was the bad controls. I remember it being a big hinderance of my first playthrough. I cannot for the life of me keep DK ducked down in the mine cart for the spikes. He keeps popping up! I know it is not the controller. I swear most of my deaths are from the game just reacting however it wants. I have lost over 60 lives due to this. I have collected all the puzzle pieces and got the secret worlld. So i have a lot of experience. Yet, I CANNOT do this.
