Donkey Kong Country 3.

Retro gaming time. I recall playing the first DKC on the Christmas of 94...95? Man it has been a while. Anyhow, Since their debut, two more sequels were released. The last one made it out on the Super Nintendo's last dying breaths. Dixie Kong's Double Trouble it was called.

I never got the chance to play the third sequel on my SNES, mainly because I already had moved on to the Nintendo 64 and all that. Thanks to emulators, I now have the chance to finally play this game.

I must say that the last installment of the series, is very very good. Great graphics and sound (for the time) were a trademark of the series, and it's still evident here. Depth of gameplay is crazy, so many places to explore, so many things to collect. Really puts to shame many games out today. Regardless of their eye-candy HD goodness.

So if you never had a chance to play DKC 3. Please do. Matter of fact, if you never played any of the DKC games, you are missing out on a great part of the history of gaming.
