Summary: This is not my 5 year-old son's favorite game, but he does play it from time to time. The graphics are good, but the sound is just okay. If it didn't have to compete with Mario for his attention, I'm sure it would get used more. He likes trying to run Chick Hicks off the road, but you can't control who you're racing against so that doesn't always happen. Overall, a good racing game for kids.
