  Just as the original Nintendo 64 game!

This game is the original racing game, i have relatives who have the mario cart versions, and they are just the exact same as this but with different charecters! This game is really similar to the nintendo 64 game. The graphics are really good and i really enjoy playing on it. You can play it over and over again!

  More is not always better

Ok so this has plans hover craft and cars, and even collectables and mini games to extend the play time, but if it isn't fun whats the point. This game feels too much like work as apose to fun.

Mario Kart DS is better by miles

I truly adore this remake of the Nintendo 64 classic racing game. All the new features are excellent especially some of the new characters that are added to it, but at time some of the tracks and certain challenges are a bit tricky. However if you keep trying and practice, you'll be fine. When I played this game, it truly has won my heart for enjoyment, try it for yourself you'll love it

  Diddy Kong Racing DS!

I never even knew this game was out on the DS, but oh my what a great buy!

The Good Bits:
o A wonderful remake for all those old school fans of the original on the N64.
o They have kept all of the original features and even added some more! (the good old music is still there guys!)
o A great game for those not familiar with the orignial, with a great adventure mode and challenges/vehicle customisation/etc and so on.
o You can make your own racing badge! (Great for those stylus arty farty types like me!...)
o TONS of unlockables! Keep you going for a fair time.

The Bad Bits:
o Flying the plane can be a little tricky using the D-Pad.
o At the beginning of each race you can use the stylus to spin/rub or blow on the DS for a boost; this is tricky because as soon as you begin you have to quickly ditch the stylus somewhere and start turning!

  The remake is awful

| | See all BlueRogue's reviews (151)

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

Still gotta love that music XD
I was always a big fan of the N64 original, but this has won my heart all over again ^^
I can now take it on the train with me, people! ON THE TRAIN! And annoy the hell out of others with the music. The characters are all sooo cute, I'd always use Conker or Banjo personally. If you're a fan of the original game, or want something a bit better than mario kart and you like games that seem like they're made for 5 year olds, but are actually amazing, then this is for you XD
Best thing in years. But it'll never beat the original...I'm such a retro gamer XD

Diddy Kong Racing is amazing!

Graphics are great, loads of characters to choose from and a long story mode.
If you're a Mario Fan - definately buy it !
If you've just got a DS - Get it

I got it for Christmas and I thought it was amazing
