Summary: It's okay,but did they REALLY have to take out Conker and replace him with Tiny/Dixie Kong? If you want to play as Conker,you'll have to stick to the N64 version. Also,controls seem to be a bit glitchy,and most of the voices sound like chipmunks.For a DS racing game,you should just stick with Mario Racing.
Summary: I imagine if you're a fan of the original Diddy Kong Racing for N64 you'll be very disappointed. After Rare took several characters (and all it's voices) away, it feels like a shell of the original game. The graphics and animation also seem to be less than desirable. I've compare it with the N64 version and I think it's actually worse. I was really hoping that this would be an improvement from the original game but I was let down.
Summary: Not nearly as good as the N64 version. What I cannot stand about the 64 to DS remakes all suck to me and my main reason is it just feels to akward for me to be using a D Pad for movement in a 3D World... The voices and gameplay as well as the graphics all seem superior to me on the N64 version. I reccomend sticking with the 64 version.
