Donkey Kong Barrel Blast is not bad as people say! It is easy to play and it's fun. There are a variety of characters to use. Until Mario Kart for the Wii, this is the best racing game out there.

Pros:
easy controls
fun
Different then any other Nintendo Game
Donkey Kong Game

Cons:
Can get tiring from shaking the remote and nunchuk
No online :(

The good:
+Fun graphics
+Great sound
+Nice mix of levels

The bad:
+Controls blow. Its fun when you have lots of energy and your pumped with all your buddies. When your tired though or alone it ridiculous. I don't want to flap around all the time. Oh and guess what? No option to change the controls around. Have fun getting carpal tunnel.

Conclusion:
Please let me be able to modify the controls and maybe I'll play it.

Nintendo does it again

Once again Nintendo blends classic characters with pure family fun. Donkey Kong BB follows the same classic formula as Mario Cart and then adds frantic and fast paced game play that can only be provided by the Wii controllers.
The greatest thing like most Wii games is that it makes you get up and play. My entire family loves this game the only thing missing was online play. When it comes to video games and athletics we are highly competitive and nothing beats the workout we receive when playing this game.
The graphics are pretty nothing ground breaking and the music fits the game well. Its also fun playing the bongos in time with the soundtrack, I've won 3 out 5 keeping up.

One last thing if they can do Donkey Kong BB where's my Samba Di Amigo?
