What I meant is that I think DK64 had the best graphics on the N64 at the time that it was released. So it got a lot of extra hype in marketing and reviews based on its graphics. Perfect Dark eventually surpassed that, but it came out a little over 6 months after DK64.


Oh, understood! Maybe I just misread it. In that case, I definitely agree with you.

Wow good point! I totally thought Banjo Tooie used it for the higher resolution mode but I just looked it up and that's not the case! Although the game is not my favorite, the fact that it's working with such limited ram does make me even more impressed with how good the graphics are. Same goes for Conker as well.

Donkey Kong 64 has multiplayer? I don't recall that, but I think I want to give it a try.

A great game ruined by too much collectables, it's like you have to play the same stages four more times, very tiresome.

The graphics are amazing and the DK Rap is very funny I must say.

Yep! It's pretty similar to Conker's Bad Fur Day but the stages are more compact.
