4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for the money! 3 Jan 2000
By Bob Ripley - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book, despite the negative reviews and loved it! Prima's guide just looks better than it's competitors and if you actually read it, VERY easy to understand. If your stuck or lost, the maps alone are GREAT and worth every dime. Don't be fooled, this book is AWESOME!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Highly Recommended 20 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is not a neat, concise type of guide. Some guides are beautifully organized and highly informative--this one is not. I guess it's somewhat helpful but if you've got to pick one guide, go with the other "official" one by Brady, or, if it's different from Brady, the Nintendo one would be better for your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many Valuable Tips Inside!! 5 April 2002
By S. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of two strategy guides I used to play this game. Initially, I was a little lost trying to match the information in the first chapter of the "Walkthrough Section" of the book to the game I saw in front of me. It leads you to believe that the "DK Isles" area is the first area to tackle but much of this area is inaccessible to you until much later in the game. If you skip that section and begin with the "Jungle Japes" section you'll be starting where the game begins and the information is very helpful from there.
This guide is especially helpful with the two "arcade" style games that you will encounter during the adventure. Winning these games will give you two unique coins that are vital to gaining access to the final area of the game. Details of how each of these games look and what must be accomplished will help anyone not familiar with these original 1980's games. My huge disadvantage from having never played either of these games was lessened by these instructions.
The other guide I used was "Donkey Kong 64 Official Strategy Guide" by Bradygames. It's definitely worth taking a look at too. Both books were invaluable to me for different reasons. Together, they helped make my game experience much more enjoyable by clarifying details I would have missed on my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are confused about all the bad ratings, read this! 9 Jan 2000
By Sephiroth001 - Published on Amazon.com
Ok, All prima guides are a little hard to understand. these facts are: undetailed maps (what are we, 5 year olds? if you can read the maps, go for it.) Information sometimes typoed and unorganized. (In the Jet Force Gemini guide, it looks like is is messed up, look for the white lines, as for typos, people like these critics can report it, and Prima will change it.) See? this guide is also intended for slightly advanced readers. if you do not like this book, look at the Nintendo version of the strategy guide.
