DS racing action bogged down by repetition.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this racing game has some cartoon violence, but very little objectionable material. The bright worlds and cartoon characters will appeal to young players under age 8, but the game may be too difficult for them to fully enjoy.

  • Excerpt: I missed Diddy Kong Racing on the Nintendo 64 (N64) back in the day. When I heard that Nintendo was releasing a Diddy Kong Racing game on the Nintendo DS, Family Friendly Gaming was the first on the list to receive a reviewable copy.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Diddy Kong Racing was a poor man's Mario Kart when it was originally released, and nothing has changed since. Some very bad touch elements don't add anything worthwhile to the experience. Buy this one only if you're a cartoon kart racer obsessive.

  • Excerpt: DS fans have been waiting patiently for another "smash hit" character racing game to arrive, so when Rare's Diddy Kong Racing was announced for the Nintendo DS, we thought it would be a great addition to our carefully built DS library. Oh, how wrong we were!

Portable Review

  • Excerpt: I felt a bit of nostalgia running through my blood as I popped in Diddy Kong Racing. I was actually a little excited. I liked Diddy Kong Racing more than Mario Kart 64, so I wondered how well the title held up throughout the years.
