Useless junk....On top of making you play every level MULTIPLE times with every damn ape.

Disagree. Rare was good with Banjo, Goldeneye and Conkers but they completely spit all over their original DK series with 64. They made a poor Banjo clone and again made the player run through every stinking level with every stinking stupid monkey multiple times. DK64 wasn't a platformer as much as it was a Collect-a-Thon and IMHO THAT game marked the start of their downfall.
I would have been fine if they cloned another game.. Hell.. Clone Mario 64 instead of Banjo.. THAT would have been a better fit.
I've never been more angry at a game than I was with DK 64. That game seriously ruined a year for me.
Because I played the stinking thing til completion.
