Donkey Kong Adventure feels almost big enough to be a sequel to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle rather than just an expansion, and it packs in a lot of tactical fun. Donkey Kong is literally a game-changing character with abilities that are fun to learn and use, and Cranky Kong's alright, too. The main downside is that you're locked into one team composition, which limits your ability to change up your playstyle or replay battles differently.

An admirably excellent slice of DLC that shares the same high production values as the original and adds plenty of unique features of its own.

Donkey Kong Adventure offers up more turn-based entertainment, but its timing and standalone nature limit its appeal

I thought I wanted more Kingdom Battle, but what I really want is something that captures the magic of experiencing its opening hours for the first time.

The new aditional content for Mario+Rabbids: Kingston Battle has a very conservative line but it isn't exempt from playable news(novelties) and from content that refresh an almost perfect pattern

A clever addition to Mario + Rabbids that plays to the original's strengths without takings many risks. While Donkey Kong Adventure likely won't win the game any new fans, it's a treat for anyone who were left wanting more. The expansion trims some of the fat from the original, delivering a quick, focused game that quits while it's ahead.

Mario + Rabbids - Donkey Kong Adventure DLC is a beautiful expansion to the last year's hit. If you have finished the original game and want more with new mechanics and another portion of positive humor, you can safely buy a season pass. Ubisoft did an excellent job.

Donkey Kong Adventure feels like a lovely addition to Mario + Rabbids, an expansion that while limited in its scope, gets everything right. It may only feature three characters but that's more than enough and when it comes to additional enemies and objectives Donkey Kong Adventure is not short in appeal, in what is certain to be a very attractive expansion for the fans of the original.

The Donkey Kong Adventure DLC brings a fresh angle to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, giving fans of the original something different to get their teeth into. It's less daunting than the main game, with some truly powerful characters often making short work of the slightly-lessened enemy onslaught, but blasting through the campaign in this way offers a nice way to enjoy the comical ride. The lack of character options is perhaps the only downer here, taking away some of the deeper strategy involved in the full game, but we still loved every moment of our time with DK and friends. If you're craving more Rabbids mayhem, give this one a whirl.

Donkey Kong Adventure is a worthy addition to the Kingdom Battle experience. The DLC's universe is a fun and colorful as the original game's while the new characters and battles add some freshness to the mix. We hope it's not the last we hear from Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Cranky.

Donkey Kong is a pleasant expansion, with a gameplay changed and adapted to the needs of the characters. Inspired, colored, passionate, he only sins in the repetitiveness of his enemies.

Ultimately, Donkey Kong Adventure is more Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, even if it overstays its welcome just a little bit.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Donkey Kong Adventure is a very well done side story to the main game. Everything that made the base game so enjoyable is practically unchanged here, while the new characters make the game a blast to play for those who have already beaten the main campaign. It would've been nice to change out characters, and it also would've been neat to see Rabbid Peach's progress carry over between campaigns, but fans of the original should pick up this DLC.
