Yeah, that was one of the main criticisms of the game, lack of story. That and repetitiveness and lack of DKC, DKL and DK64 characters. But atleast DK fights someone besides K. Rool for once, "Ghastly King" ([dkwiki]Wizpig[/dkwiki] and [dkwiki]KAOS[/dkwiki] don't count).
This is how I see it. Every Kong who wasn't in the original DKC triolgy is a waist of time. Bye bye Chunky and Lankey. Next, Wrinkly only saves your games and gives you advice, plus she has only been in two games. So no Wrinkly. Kiddy was basicly a stupider DK so no. Now we get down to the finalists. DK, Diddy, Dixie, and Cranky. Dixie was only in two games so goodbye. DK is cool, but he's to fat. Diddy is tight with me but I have to say the winner is Crankey, for wise words of wisdom and... he beats people with a cane. And he's crankey, I mean, come on, who doesn't like the crankey guy.
Dixie was in six games and she has been confirmed for three upcoming ones. Wrinkly has also been in six. Though Tiny Kong, well she just sucks. Anybody else ever see that unamed hillbilly Kong from Diddy Kong Pilot (cancelled), that guy looked weird, relative of Lanky maybe? By the way, i'll give you a few more days for [dkwiki]Mr. X[/dkwiki], but I'm gonna need some kind of evidence or else the article may end up being deleted.
