After years of living in peace and harmony, the inhabitants of Timber's Island are shocked when their tropical paradise is invaded by a giant, hideous space pig! To thwart Wizpig's nefarious plans, explore the sprawling island, unlock hidden racetracks, and drive, hover and fly against colorful characters in high-octane competitions!

Your host, a gregarious elephant named Taj, greets you in a grassy meadow. Drive over bridges, through sparkling surf and around volcanoes. Start racing. You'll have to speed through a huge variety of racing challenges if you want to unlock all the island's secrets, complete the adventure and save your friends from the parlous pig. Diddy Kong Racing DS boasts a huge number of courses, including several all-new ones!

Diddy Kong Racing DS offers three types of vehicles: karts, hovercraft and airplanes. The drivers range from the quick and the small to heavyweights who specialize in bashing rivals off the course. Duel with classic DKR power-ups like oil slicks, gas clouds, land mines, super shields, speed boosts, homing missiles and magnets. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, you'd better be ready for anything under the sun!
  • Wish Race mode gives you complete freedom to design, build, and race on the track of your dreams, thanks to excellent use of Touch Screen controls. Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection compatibility lets you share your work of genius with everyone. Of course!
  • Drivers can use Nintendo WFC to go online and race against players from around the world! Diddy Kong Racing DS also features multiplayer single-card download play and multi-card local wireless play.
  • Create your own multiplayer icon! Choose from a full palette and three kinds of brushes to create a masterpiece that identifies you in the midst of multiplayer madness.
  • Unique touch controls! Spin a tire to get a speed boost off the starting line, and much more!
  • Monkey around with two new racers: Dixie Kong and Tiny Kong!
  • Customisation rules! Diddy will make sure you can pull out your (virtual) monkey wrench and upgrade your vehicle's speed, durability, and appearance.
  • A faster frame rate, retextured and remixed tracks, new racing challenges, brand new levels, improved vehicle control and more make this an experience that both newcomers and savvy vets will love!

 No match for Mario Kart

It's not even close :(

I just returned this on the basis that it was a bit rubbish and I'd like to make very clear that I AM a fan of the original on the Nintendo 64.
So what's wrong with it? The DS's controls.
If you remember playing this on the N64 then you'll remember playing it with an analogue stick, and that works just fine. On the DS, however, you have to play with the digital pad and this is the root of the problem with the conversion, it's unwieldy! Seriously, trying to fly the aeroplane is frustrating to the max and in no time you'll feel like a long-haul BA pilot after one too many fingers of whiskey.
If you've not got Mario Kart then do yourself a favour and buy that instead.

 As good as Mario Cart

Anyone who says this game is bad cant really play this game. Sure the aeroplane was hard to fly but you get use to it soon enough. in this Game you get a car, hovercraft and a plane. Unlike Mariocart the game never ends!! You can keep ugrading your kart with the money you collect onthe races. This is an adventure........racing game. those to words dont go together well but this game pulls those off well.

 The remake is awful

This remake goes against everything the original stood for. The exclusion of Conker & Banjo was the first issue, secondly their replacements weren't that good, thirdly the change in certain voices are really bad, then you've got the Wi-Fi which would've worked but unfortunately the professionals who were around during the original release will leave everyone behind and it shows when you actually compete online, also the Stylus start is annoying. I would recommend that you hope for a virtual console release of the original because this version is rubbish
