"Not too different from Donkey Konga"
Donkey Konga is basically the same thing as Donkey Konga with new modes and songs. So if you liked Donkey Konga, you'll like this. This game comes with all the sound sets in Donkey Konga, like Electrical Set. There are new mini-games, and more!
There is a new mode called Freestyle Zone. You pick a song, and you do whatever you want with it. Every time you press a button, there is a different picture that pops up. Freestyle Zone isn't one of this game's cooler features. It gets boring.
There are new items to buy in this game. There are new sound sets, like the Bird Set. In this game, you don't have to buy the mini-games like in Donkey Konga. Like in Donkey Konga, you have to buy the gorilla songs if you want to play them in Gorilla mode. Those are the only things in the shops.
Donkey Kong, Diddy, and Cranky are all still playing. But there is a new character, Dixie Kong. She plays against you when you don't have an opponent. She also gives you hints when you need help. She's a really cool feature of this game.
There are new mini-games in Donkey Konga 2, like Rhythm Keeper, where you have to memorize a rhythm and then do it. It costs coins to play mini-games in this game. The mini-games can be quite addicting, so they are easy ways to lose your coins.
In Donkey Konga 2, there are badges. You pick a badge to be yours, and when you make a high score, or set a new record, instead of entering your name, you enter your badge. Some badges are the Toad Badge, and the Luigi Badge. To get the badges, you have to play mini-games. The better you do in the mini-games, the more chances to get badges you have.
Some modes in Donkey Konga 2, are the same as in Donkey Konga. Like Challenge Mode, Street Performance, and Battle.
The rating for this game is outta-whack. It's rated T for Mild Lyrics, when none of the songs are even bad. I give the rating a 0/10. It's terrible.
The graphics are the same as in Donkey Konga. They are perfect. Everything is flawless. The controls are also the same as in Donkey Konga, so there's nothing new that you need to learn.
To buy or to rent, that is the question that roams among us today. If you liked Donkey Konga, then buy this game. If you didn't like Donkey Konga, then rent this game first to see if you think you'll like it.
