Fun game!

This isn't the best GameCube game ever, but it's still very fun. Good for the whole family.

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Teen testers couldn't get enough of this game. They liked the wide selection of popular music and the multiple levels of difficulty. They enjoyed being able to compete or cooperate to make music.

Donkey Konga is similar in game play to Dance, Dance Revolution, but it's easier to play. While you can play Donkey Konga using standard game controllers, our testers said they wouldn't recommend it. This is a great party game if you are willing to invest in the extra DK Bongos.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
