Donkey Kong: Jet Race invites you to drum the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to zoom Donkey Kong through a series of races and be the first to cross the finish line. You'll collect bananas and power-ups to compete against other characters in the Donkey Kong universe like Diddy, Dixie, and King K. Rool plus four new characters!

Use speed, skill, and power-ups to blast your way past your opponents or use dirty tricks like punches and pineapple launchers to push them to the back of the race. Invite three of your friends over to play and have a four-player race!

Controlling Donkey Kong: Jet Race will get you moving! Race forward by drumming both the Wii Remote and the Nunchuck together at the same time to pound your barrels. To turn right or left, drum just one of the controllers for a quick turn to snatch a power-up or slide in front of someone. Once you get up to full speed all you need to do is steer-until someone tries to bonk you on the head and push you back! Use buttons to launch attacks and if you can string together a series of moves and attacks you get special combos that'll really put you ahead of the pack.
  • Challenge up to three friends to see who is king of the jungle with a four-way split screen mode.
  • Simple Wii controls make racing a snap. Shake the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to accelerate, then shake one or the other to turn. Press a single button or shake the controller to jump, attack or use items.
  • Target enemies with a Pineapple Cannon, skillfully chain together Wild Moves or use the Wii Remote to blast out of a Style Barrel.

Absolutely love this game

At first i didn;t get it as i'd not read the instructions and just found it very odd.

When you realise its really a tactical game where you collect bananas for power ups and can do special moves it gets really enjoyable. Great with your mates

A very addictive game which imho is better than mario cart on the wii

 A lot of fun! could have been a bit better though.

dont get me wrong, this game is good, i really enjoy playing it. but i thought this would be similar to diddy kong racing, however its not, small weapon choice, and tracks feel very samey, but its still very enjoyable. just could have been done a bit better!

 Not bad, not great

Just because it's made by Nintendo doesn't mean it's fantastic. This game is the case in point.

There is nothing terrible about this game, but there is nothing great about it either. The controls are so simple my 3 year old can play it, and he doesn't come last on Jet Race like he does with Mario Kart.

Graphics are ok, weapons are ok, courses are uninspired, but the whole thing is lacking in that 'wow' factor. It's too shallow to have any replay value, so you won't be playing it much after you've completed it. Kids will love it though.

If you were expecting a high quality game like Diddy Kong Racing or Mario Kart, you will be disappointed. If you wanted a fairly fun, simple racer to whip out at parties then by all means give it a try.

 Good Game 4/5

this a good game fun for the whole family it sort of like diddy kong racing when you shoot an item at someone you have to aim with your wii remote then fire you use the knuchuck to accelerate and drive and you use the wii remote to shoot and jump or dodge. all in all a good game but i think the new mario kart should be even better than dony kong: jet race
