Donkey Konga... best game ever?

Well okay... not quite the best game EVER, but I havn't had a game be this much fun outside of the box in quite a long time.

Of course... it's got two things going for it for me...

1) You beat on a pair of bongos... Having been a drummer I'm always about beating on things...

2) Their music selection is actually quite humorous. From the default nintendo songs (Mario, Zelda [which is hard.. omg], Pokemon, etc) to other great hits such as "Whip It', "We Will Rock You", and "Rock Lobster".

You know it's good music when you're singing along and you mess up cause you're moving too much to the music. =)

Most of the songs are fully licensed versions with the original singers... but some, like Rock Lobster, don't have the original singers. So it's still good, but not quite as good as it *could* be.

The mini-games you have to unlock seem ass so far... and the extra bongo sounds you unlock seem more annoying then good. About the only things that seem worth unlocking are the songs in the hardest difficulty level. It'll be a while till I need those, so that's not a problem.

I can't wait to play multi-player! Going to be so much fun.
